Watch: Rihanna Accepts the President’s Award at the 51st Annual NAACP Image Awards

Published: Sunday 23rd Feb 2020 by Rashad

Rihanna‘s strides in music, acting, fashion, and philanthropy may have made her a shoo-in for the President’s Award at the 51st annual NAACP Image Awards (February 22), but her modest yet stirring acceptance speech only confirmed why she was most worthy of the honor.

“Tonight is not really about me, because the purpose is bigger than me, right?” she said upon accepting her award. “It’s not bigger than us together, but it’s bigger than me, because my part is a very small part of the work that is being done in this world and the work that is yet to be done.”

Leading the event’s attendees at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium to respond with a roaring standing ovation, look inside to see what else she said:

    • DC3 FOREVER February 23, 2020

      What an idiot! Beyoncé won every award she was nominated for that night. Only a true hater would come on another artists post to TRY & fail to throw shade at another artists. PRESSED MUCH?

  4. Rihanna the King!! February 23, 2020

  6. Clarks0oñ February 23, 2020

    Another award show where flopmani is nominated (she didnt win ?) and she didnt attend or perform.

    Smh. Normani is over

    • MichelleBranchSpiritRoom February 23, 2020

      ????
      Your comment makes me laugh??
      Normani has no chance in hell to go head to head with Rihanna, Camila, Taylor or Beyonce.
      Maybe of she competes with K.Michelle, Megan Tee Stallion or Tinashe

      ???????????

    • Lizzo & KFC February 23, 2020

      Normani ain’t got no s*** on Lizzo ?

    • Cûûmila Cebolla February 23, 2020

      Your mother is a human toilet prostitute

    I’m not the biggest Rhianna fan (the only album in her catalog I would keep would be “ANTi”, maybe a few singles), but I will admit that I’m very proud of her for showing up and being genuinely grateful. Especially this this would be considered a smaller award show and a black award show. Some artist brag about being pro-black but wouldn’t be caught dead at a black award show unless they were performing but will spend the entire night at a predominantly white award show and the after party ? (dont give a damn if she is one of my faves). Rhianna earns herself another 2 cookies from me today, now where’s the damn album? I need “ANTi V2”!

  8. MichelleBranchSpiritRoom February 23, 2020

    Congrats Rihanna
    I love the album “Music it the Sun”

  9. Lizzo & KFC February 23, 2020

    I’m not trying to hate on her or something but Lizzo is more deserving of presidents award than forehead WiFi. ?

    • Ugghh February 23, 2020

      What has Lizzo done charitably or what foundations has she created to better society? You all just say shît. None of it is ever substantial, bares truth or is credible.

  10. Meme February 23, 2020

    Wow, very well spoken words. Her swag is on 1000

  11. Cûûmila Cebolla February 23, 2020

    ATTENTION ATTENTION

    Clarkson‘s mom is a human toilet crack addict prostitute

  12. I love big black c** February 23, 2020

    She can retire now. Bye Felicia

    • Cûûmila Cebolla February 23, 2020

      Only thing that needs to retire is your loose and STD ridden püssy

      • I love big black c** February 23, 2020

    It’s so beautiful watching her evolution from teen Island girl to grown woman powerhouse mogul. ????
