Rihanna Is Cara Delevingne's Career Mentor

The singer is teaching the model how to deal with rejection.

Published May 21, 2015

Rihanna and Cara Delevingne are definitely two people who look like they don't have a care in the world, but pretty girls have to deal with rejection, too. Thankfully for Cara, she's found a mentor in RiRi to teach her how to handle those times when you don't get everything you want, exactly when you want it.


Speaking to WSJ magazine, the model recalls the time she lost out on a role in a Beach Boys biopic because the project itself was scrapped. “I was heartbroken,” she says. She then called RiRi — because, of course you would — who told her, “Everything happens for a reason. You are going to call me back in a week or two and say, ‘You are right.’”

Lo and behold, Rihanna's words of wisdom turned out to be true. Delevingne later landed a role in John Green's teen drama Paper Towns

Sounds like Cara is very lucky to have RiRi to lean on during her low times. We can only imagine what kind of awesome career advice she's getting from her pal Beyoncé.
