Rihanna To Receive NAACP President’s Award

Published: Tuesday 4th Feb 2020 by Sam

That Rihanna reign just won’t let up!

Moments ago, organizers for the 51st Annual NAACP Image Awards announced that the multi-hyphenate star will be the recipient of the President’s Award at the ceremony later this month.

Full story below…

RiRi was picked for her “groundbreaking career as an artist and musician, but (someone who) has also distinguished herself as a stellar public servant.”

As anticipation grows for her ninth studio album, the star will make an appearance at the February 22nd Pasadena show to pick up the honor.

Fans will be able to view the presentation when the 2020 NAACP Awards airs live on BET.

Rih – who, in recent years, has built a Fenty empire – joins an elite list of previous recipients, including Muhammad Ali, Condoleezza Rice, Jesse Jackson, and Roc Nation head Jay-Z. [Source]

    For what? disappearing from music because she can’t find the HIT she needs to regain her status. She’s bascially disappeared into the cosmetics world – while MUSIC has left her behind – who even listens to her music anymore?

      Respectfully, if music left Rihanna behind, then the general public wouldn’t be begging her for new music. She is the richest female musician because of her cosmetics line. That line has given her more money than music ever has….and more money than some of your faves will ever see (no shade). Once you’re in your 30’s, musicians (especially females) have to find other avenues to stay afloat and relevant. Rihanna has done this better than almost anyone has. Beyoncé (who I adore) is struggling to find another avenue (acting didn’t work, those big orange boxes didn’t work, etc.).

      She probably can’t find the one hit cause she’s getting BOMBARDED with tons for her to choose.
      A privilege most of your faves don’t have ?‍♂️

    Meanwhile

    Camila Cabello is the female artist with the most Hot 100 entries in 2020 so far (4).

  8. High Price February 4, 2020

    People throw the word “icon” around so frequently nowadays without truly realizing and or recognizing it’s true meaning. I must say though, Rihanna exemplifies that word in and out across all domains. She’s the epitome of it. Congratulations Rih! Much deserved! ?
