HONOURED: Rihanna

RIHANNA WAS honoured with the Rock Star Award at the recent Black Girls Rock ceremony on Friday (April 1).

The event, which was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross, was a partnership between BET and the non-profit Black Girls Rock! to honour the achievements of extraordinary women of colour.

Rihanna, who is currently on her 73-date world tour said: “Thank you so much for celebrating us in a world that doesn’t celebrate us enough.

“The minute you learn to love yourself, you will not want to be anybody else.”

She added: “Role model is not the title they like to give me…but I think I can inspire a lot of young women to be themselves and that is half the battle. Hopefully one day I’ll be raising my own little black girl who rocks.”
