Musician and businesswoman extraordinaire, Rihanna, has a seven-year-old look-alike and we're pretty sure she's a spitting image of what Rihanna looked like as a child.

We've seen some really impressive Rihanna look-alikes over the years.

I wonder if these people even realize how lucky they are.

If I could choose to look like anyone, it would be Rihanna, and these people just got lucky?! It's not fair.

"People began approaching me in the street asking if I was her and I would see photos of myself going viral on social media. Literally, people mistake me for her all the time! I only have to step out of the house for an hour before I hear someone say, “Oh my god, is that Rihanna?” she told Daily Mail.

“The moment I step out anywhere, everyone starts staring and whispering before I get bombarded by strangers asking to take their photo with me," she continued.

“I’ve heard it for a long time and sometimes people ask to take pictures with me when I go out. But in my personal life, it can be a bit complicated because I never know if someone is speaking to me for my personality or because they think I look like Rihanna,” she said in an interview.

She explained that she often wonders if men like her for her, or because she looks like Rihanna.

“So when I talk to a guy, it’s often, ‘You look like Rihanna,’ and he’s happy to show me off to his friends, and I often wonder if we can move beyond the looks. But outside of that I find it all pretty funny.”

"I lost my mind," Tyra said. "Rihanna looks like Tookie, the lead girl in the Modelland story. Rihanna, I know you not gonna play Tookie. She might, you never know.

"But for this, I don’t think I'm necessarily going to get Rihanna for the movie. But I was like, we're also looking for little girl Tookie. So I was like, that little girl looks like little girl Tookie, because Tookie's also kind of inspired by me and my story."

"So I just became obsessed with this girl," she continued.

"I was like, 'Help me! Who is this girl? Like, I want to find this girl and hopefully, possibly she can try out because she's got to act and do all that stuff, to play little Tookie."

Entertainment Tonight actually surprised Tyra by connecting her to Ala'a and her mom over FaceTime.

She proposed that Ala'a audition for the role, and also gave her some valuable life advice.

"The best piece of advice is to really study hard at school and know that modeling will always be there," she said.

"So make sure you finish school and make sure that you listen to your mom and get all your schoolwork done. Then once your schoolwork is done, then you can practice your model poses in the mirror. But not until the schoolwork is done."
