Rihanna received the Rockstar Award at the 2016 BET Black Girls Rocks event honouring black women in the entertainment industry. Rihanna was among the honorees at this year’s Black Girls Rock! event, where Hillary Clinton made an appearance. The Friday night event was taped at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. The special will air on BET on Tuesday (April 5).
“Thank you so much for celebrating us in a world that doesn’t celebrate us enough,” she said onstage. “The minute you learn to love yourself you will not want to be anybody else,” the Grammy-winning singer and fashion trendsetter 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.” The Barbados-born singer also thanked her mother and grandmother for being strong black women and excellent role models. “Hopefully one day I’ll be raising my own little black girl who rocks,” she said.
