As if looking like Rihanna wouldn't already be cool enough, this brilliant woman found a way to make a living off of it!

Meet Andele Lara, a 22-year-old from Boston who obviously bears a striking resemblance to the Barbadian beauty. She actually looks so much like RiRi that she often gets mobbed by screaming fans when she steps out in public.

While that might get a little annoying after awhile, the fact that companies are willing to pay her for being BadGalRiRi's doppelganger is definitely not.

According to The Daily Mail, Andele has now become a professional Rihanna lookalike. She tells them that clothing companies have paid her $20,000 to endorse their products. "I've scored hair contracts as well as sneaker, mascara, hair accessories and apparel deals," she explained. "I also get into clubs for free and I get a lot of free drinks too!"

"I know I could happily give up my part-time job and studies to have a career as a Rihanna lookalike," she tells the site. But the one thing she can't do is sing like Rihanna.

Unfortunately, Andele hasn't met the superstar yet, but she's working on it. 'I would love to meet Ri-Ri and take a selfie with her!" she says. Wouldn't we all?!

Do you guys think Andele looks like Rihanna?
