It's nice work if you can get it.
A 22-year-old woman who is a dead ringer for pop singer Rihanna is commanding up to $20,000 in product endorsement fees.
According to Mz Shyneka of Word On the Streetz, Andele Lara is paid big bucks by clothing and shoe companies to endorse their products.
The companies, which probably can't afford the real thing, pay Andele thousands of dollars to endorse their sneakers, mascara and hair products on social media.
"As Rihanna’s career rose, my career rose in a sense because it was like she was getting bigger and I was getting bigger and everyone kept noticing her more," said Andele.
A 22-year-old Boston woman named Andele Lara, looks very similar to the Barbadian singer. Andele tells The Daily Mail during a interview that she first realized she looked like Rihanna when she was in high school. She says that one of her friends pointed out the identical features.
Andele has never met Rihanna, but did have a small encounter with her. A fan posted a picture on Instagram of Andele with the caption, “Rare pic of Rihanna.” The icon commented saying, “OH?!” Her response sparked a flood of nasty comments being left on Andele’s page, which is now private.
She does admit that she would love to meet the real Rihanna one day. "I would love to meet RiRi and take a selfie with her!"
