This Lady's Instagram Has Earned Her Over $20,000 Because She Looks Like Rihanna

To be honest, this girl looks EXACTLY like Rihanna, though.

Andele Lara is a 22-year-old student from Boston, Massachusetts, and she looks exactly like Rihanna.

Lara is such a dead ringer for Rihanna that she's swarmed by fans and is paid thousands of dollars to endorse products for brands.

Lara told the Daily Mail that she earned over $20,000 worth of clothing contracts last year and her Instagram photos regularly go viral.

She currently has nearly 30,000 Instagram followers.

She also told the Daily Mail that she once ended up at the same nightclub as Chris Brown and everyone just assumed she had to have been Rihanna.

Lara has essentially become a full-time Rihanna lookalike and said she could quit school and turn pretending into her day job.

The only downside: Unlike the real deal, Lara can't sing.

The world is a weird place...
