Larissa de Macedo Machado (born March 30, 1993) was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She is a Brazilian singer, songwriter and television host. She is professionally known as Anitta. Anitta's stage name was inspired by the character Anita, from the book Presença de Anita adapted as a teleseries by Rede Globo in 2001.
