Rihanna bought her dad a house for Father's Day

2016-06-19 09:00

Los Angeles - Rihanna has bought a house for her father.

The What's My Name hitmaker - whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty - shortlisted a number of homes for her father Ronald to choose from.

He told Now magazine: "Robyn was so kind. She sent me a few houses to choose from around the island. I chose this one, not because it was the most expensive, but it's got the gardens. I'm hoping when I have the strength and energy to spend more time out there I can build a water feature. And I want to turn one of the rooms downstairs into a gym so I can get fit again."

Meanwhile, the 28-year-old singer previously revealed her life now is "so far from the reality of her life" before.

She said: "What is the top? I don't think you're ever at the top. If you ever feel you're at the top, there's only one way to go and that's down - and I don't ever want to feel comfortable enough to say that.

"I always had a big dream and it's only now I look back in hindsight that it was a really, really, really big dream for a little girl from a really small island. I wanted to sing and I wanted to sing like the big ones - Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Destiny's Child. These were women from all spectrums of the globe who made music that could be heard all over the world and I wanted to do that too.

"This was so far from the reality of my life that it was hardly even possible but back then it didn't seem strange at all. I really believed it could happen."
