  1. Groundbreaking singer, artist, fashion designer, make up designer, actress, diplomat, Doctor Rihanna Fenty should be addressed with her now official title “Her Excellence” Excellency is an honorific style given to certain high-level officers of a sovereign state, officials of an international organization, or members of an aristocracy. Once entitled to the title "Excellency", the holder usually retains the right to that courtesy throughout his or her lifetime. Thanks.
  2. Also: C'est qui la fille en noir aux gros seins?" In English: "Who is the girl in black (outfit) with big boobs ?"
  3. Oh well. Money runs the world. I personally wouldn’t up for that but on the other hand I‘m not a millionaire
  4. “Education is a lifelong journey. We never know everything, but we constantly evolve as we learn more about our communities, this ever-changing world and ourselves. I’m not ashamed to say I’m still learning. I’ve grown tremendously as an individual through my formal education as well as the global education I have received by travelling the world through music. The lack of access to education for children around the world is a massive problem, but that does not mean we should throw up our hands in despair and surrender. Instead, we need to take on as much of the challenge as we can manage to set an example and see the difference. This is what has driven me to prioritise global education in my philanthropy and advocacy work. The notion that millions of children are desperate to go to school and are not given the opportunity is something I cannot accept. Growing up in Barbados, I did not always love school. It can feel like a grind, especially when you’d rather be singing, playing sports or doing pretty much anything other than homework. I realise now that I often took it for granted that I was even able to go to school. Education can be stolen from you in a second. As we’ve seen recently on an unprecedented scale, the Caribbean gets hit by natural disasters that wipe out schools, leaving thousands of children stranded. In other parts of the world, conflict, poverty, deeply ingrained sexism, and bad public policy keep more than a quarter of a billion children and teensfrom getting an education. Almost a quarter of these children are affected by conflict or crisis, and girls are more likely not to complete school. But that’s just the surface of the problem. It does not have to be this way. Each additional year of primary schooling boosts a girl’s prospective income by up to 20%. This is not lost on many developing countries. Take Ethiopia, where a 15-year gender equality plan targeting girls’ education has more than doubled participation today. More than 93% of Ethiopian girls are in primary school and 96% in middle school. The price tag to the international community of educating a primary-aged child currently not enrolled in school is estimated at just over $50 a year. I want to be part of a solution that works. In 2012, I launched the Clara Lionel Foundation because I believe we each have an opportunity to help one person. CLF is inspired by my passion for children, especially their health and education. We fund programmes that remove barriers to education by offering financial support to children and their communities. And following our time in Malawi, I am proud to say we are supporting thousands of girls there to move through secondary school. Every voice counts, and limited knowledge is no reason to stay silent. We all have a stake in this. Imagine a world where millions of children, previously left to fend for themselves, are given the chance to learn. When it comes to helping the world’s poorest children, as well as the communities and societies in which they live, I’m still learning – and I need others to join me on the journey and use their voices alongside mine. If we can overcome the education deficit in the developing world, everybody wins. • Robyn Rihanna Fenty is an artist, entrepreneur and philanthropist from Barbados” https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/sep/18/rihanna-barbados-school-lucky-education-poverty

    Rumor

    Of course she will co-headlining. Nothing indicated in the thread that she will headline. Did Nicki perform at the Super Bowl 2 Years in her career?
  6. Suddenly improvement is pandering?
  7. When racist means being praised for a diverse fashion show, then ok
