You think you’d have the world at you feet if you woke up every morning looking like the pop Queen that is Rihanna.

But it turns out it’s not always so easy to look like the Rude Boy songstress, as Riri doppelganger Yna Sertalf knows all too well. While opening up on her daily struggles of being a Rihanna clone, the 23-year-old revealed she is yet to find Mr Right because of her looks.

She said: ‘I’ve been single for about a year, but I would never put myself in a relationship with someone who sees me as Rihanna and not Yna.

‘When I talk to someone and hear Rihanna too many times [when we’re hanging out], I give up [on them] because I can’t determine if the person fantasises about Rihanna or if they really want to know me. That’s why I’m single.’

The influencer added: ‘I have been mistaken for Rihanna quite a lot. This happens to me usually when I’m in tourist places.’

And it turns out even her mum once thought a picture of the famous singer was her daughter, and joked about it with Yna.

‘My friends and family find it funny too,’ the internet sensation added: ‘Once my mom received a magazine in her mailbox with Rihanna on the cover and she sent it to me, saying “I thought it was you.”

‘The funniest thing is when people talk about you thinking they’re being discrete. I always smile at them to show them that I heard. It’s embarrassing. ‘But when little kids scream at their parents, “it’s Rihanna” it’s lovely.

Sometimes even if we tell them I’m not her, they think we’re lying.’ She continued: ‘I always tell the truth straight away.

Because I am fatter than her and I speak French people notice that I’m not her quickly enough.’

The rising star spoke about how it was her uncle who first noticed the similarities to the singer, after she’d chopped her hair into a bob.

He went onto tell Yna’s mum, and since then it seems as though both her family and fans alike have compared her to the star – especially after she joined Instagram.

Posing in similar ways to Rihanna, Yna has quickly found herself a following on the social media platform, and has already racked up 23,000 followers.

But despite her not being able to find love just yet, it seems her fans aren’t too fussed, as they keep asking the Instagrammer where the album is at.

Since the real Umbrella songstress started to tease her fans with new material, she has been inundated with the same question – turning it into a running joke with her fanbase.

And while we eagerly await her next release, it seems pappa Fenty couldn’t help but let some news slip when he was reportedly chatting to fans about his daughter’s career. Someone claimed to have sent a DM to the star’s father on Instagram begging for details on the new album.

They later told their fellow Navy members that Ronald replied: ‘She’s working on her new album she is in the studio right now.
