  1. This year’s Parsons School of Design Benefit has a high-wattage star attached: none other than Bad Gal RiRi herself. Rihanna will be honored — alongside Eileen Fisher and Neiman Marcus — at the school’s 69th annual benefit, taking place on May 22 at Pier 60. It’s not the only laurel she’s gotten recently for her charity work: Harvard named her its Humanitarian of the Year last month, an award she accepted with an immortal ponytail flick. Via The Cut
  2. Rihanna rakes in her 29th career leader on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart, as "Sex With Me" bumps 3-1. In the tally of the most No. 1s in the chart's 40-plus year history, Rihanna remains second only to Madonna, who has scored a record 46 No. 1s. Late last year, Rihanna was named the No. 3 Dance Club Artist in Billboard's Greatest of All Time recap of the ranking's first 40 years. "Sex With Me" is Rihanna's second No. 1 of 2017 ("Love On The Brain" reached #1 in January), following a year in which she earned four leaders, placing her in elite territory. Only four acts have scored four No. 1s in a calendar year, and Rihanna is the only one to do so four times (2007, 2010, 2011 and 2016). Lady Gaga tallied four in a January-December span twice (2009 and 2011) and Beyoncé (2009) and Katy Perry (2014) each earned the honor once. Rihanna's "Sex With Me (Remixes)" is available now on Tidal, Spotify and Apple Music.
  3. Via W Mag: There were plenty of memorable moments from the Fall 2017 season: Karl Lagerfeld's space ship at Chanel, Raf Simons' arrival in New York for Calvin Klein, Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger's Los Angeles extravaganza—the list goes on. But despite it all, there was just one show that truly merged everything you'd want in a 2017 fashion show: celebrity, spectacle, and, oh yeah, some actual fun fashion. That designer? None other than Rihanna, showing the third collection for her Fenty Puma line during Paris Fashion Week. The pop-star's past showings for the brand saw a haunted forest meets hall of mirrors, complete with goth-ified Hadids, for her debut in New York, and last season she featured modern day Marie Antoinettes. For Fall 2017, Rihanna upped the ante, (the Anti, if you prefer), as she took over Paris' Richelieu-Louvois Library for a show that read equal parts runway (models walked top of long desks, rather than the traditional catwalk) and detention—except you actually wanted to be here. Here, in a video premiering exclusively on W, Rihanna explains the inspiration for the show: "It's a huge library, and I couldn't think of anywhere better for the theme of this collection: back to school," the singer explains in the two minute clip. "All the cliques, all the lunch tables, all the different personalities and attitudes and looks and styles and energies. I'm really excited about it." The video also provides a backstage look at the so-called Fenty Class of 2017, which is filled with the season's most buzzed about models. Appearing in the clip are Joan Smalls, Slick Woods, Grace Elizabeth, Stella Maxwell, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Dilone, all of whom appear both on the runway, as well as just before, receiving final touch ups from the designer. Also making an appearance? None other than Cara Delevingne, a Rihanna bestie and upcoming co-star: the two will also appear on-screen together, alongside Dane DeHaan, in this summer's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The model-turned-actress is seen running backstage post-show as one of the many clamoring to give their congratulations. Bad girl? More like Most Likely to Succeed.

  9. Via WWD: It was just a quiet night in the library with Rihanna. For her third Fenty Puma collection, RiRi paraded her fall collection at Paris’ Bibliothèque Nationale de France, where the stacks probably hadn’t seen this much excitement since the Dewey Decimal System was installed. There was very little reading being done. The long tables at which the audience sat, a classic green library lamp for just about every place, became the runway, as the models strutted by in riffs on private school plaids, letterman sweaters and jackets, basketball shorts, track suits, boxers and jerseys. There were wayward Catholic school girls, sexy jocks, punks and Goths — all done up with a major dose of Rihanna’s DGAF attitude. See the FENTY x PUMA collection After the show, she said going back to school thematically was a way to relive her school days and do all the things she wasn’t allowed to when she was a kid. “In Barbados, we don’t get to dress up in school,” said Rihanna. “It’s strictly school uniforms. Every time I would come to America, I would see kids getting into dressing up…this was my way of expressing myself in that avenue, having fun, creating looks that blended with the different cliques and marrying that world with sport.” The collection was fun, impressively staged and full of good energy, which is no easy feat at 9 p.m. on the second-to-last day of the four-week fashion week haul. Watch the fashion show A skateboard-toting female model in a long plaid robe of a puffer jacket, boxer shorts and no shirt set the tone for Rihanna’s bad gal school dress code. There was a cropped Puma pantha logo sweater worn with mixed navy and green plaid track pants and a big stuffed teddy bear backpack. An exaggerated sweater dress came in navy and yellow varsity stripes emblazoned with the year 1988. A corseted cropped T-shirt was worn with baggy basketball shorts and over-the-knee, lace-up boots based on classic Puma sneakers. The palette was based on traditional school colors — and then black and tan for the Goth kids who closed the show in aggressively oversized hooded faux-fur coats and sweats. Find more on Twitter and Instagram: @rihannadaily The look was quite different from Rihanna’s previous two collections — the first Japanese-Goth inspired, the second girly, sweet Marie Antionette-sport — but the mood was the same. Rihanna is reportedly working with different designers each season, but the end result reflects her very distinct, personal point of view. The lineup was full of a lot of clothes for real kids to realistically wear — puffers, windbreakers, hoodies and track pants, that were much cooler than Rihanna’s own school uniform. “It was like a khaki dress that zips up in the front and a blue and yellow belt with black shoes,” she recalled. “That sounds like fun, right?” Watch Rihanna backstage at the show

  11. It’s not just her music that Rihanna is receiving accolades for. The “Love on the Brain” singer headed to the hallowed halls of Harvard University on Tuesday, where she received the prestigious honor of 2017 Humanitarian of the Year by the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations. Dr. S. Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation, introduced Rihanna, saying, “Rihanna has charitably built a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados… It is for these philanthropic initiatives, and other acts of compassionate sharing, that the students and faculty of the Harvard Foundation chose to honor Rihanna with the 2017 Humanitarian of the Year Award.” “So I made it to Harvard!” the singer said as she took to the stage, where she spoke about the childhood that inspired her charitable work as an adult. “I’m incredibly humbled to be acknowledged at this magnitude for something, in truth, I never wanted credit for,” Rihanna told the crowd. “I remember watching TV (as a child) and I would see commercials with children suffering in other parts of the world, the ones where you could give 25 cents and save a child’s life. I said, ‘When I grow up and get rich I’m gonna help kids all over the world.’ I just didn’t know I would be in the position to do that by the time I was a teenager.” Looking chic in a gray, off-the-shoulder tweed dress and over-the-knee gray boots with her hair swept back, Rihanna challenged the crowd of students and fans to make a difference in their own lives. “We’re all human, and we all just want a chance,” Rihanna said. “A chance at life, a chance at an education, a chance at a future, really. And at CLF [the Clara Lionel Foundation], our mission is to impact as many lives as possible, but it starts with just one. Just one. As I stare out into his beautiful room, I see optimism, I see hope, I see the future. I know that each and every one of you has the opportunity to help someone else. All you need to do is help one person and expect nothing in return. To me, that is a humanitarian.” Rihanna started CLF in 2012 in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. The organization funds education, health, and emergency response programs, and seeks to improve the life of young people around the world. And while she didn’t attend college herself, Rihanna hinted that there’s always the possibility she’ll pursue further education. “The truth the little girl watching those commercials didn’t know, was that you don’t have to be rich to be a humanitarian. You don’t have to be famous, or college-educated,” Rihanna laughed. “I wish I was, especially today. I might come back!” Before the big event, Rihanna went on a tour of the university and had lunch at Henrietta’s Table in the Charles Hotel. And according to the University staff, the Barbadian singer blended in with the students quite well. “I can’t tell you what a gracious person she’s been to our students all day,” said Dr. S. Allen Counter, executive director the Harvard Foundation. Rihanna’s Full Speech at Harvard (Text) Via PEOPLE and Just Jared
  12. Rihanna rises 8-7 on the Hot 100 with "Love on the Brain." A week ago, the song became her 30th top 10, a milestone that only Madonna (the leader with 38 top 10s) and The Beatles (34) had previously achieved. Airplay leads the way for the track, which advances 5-3 on Radio Songs (108 million, up 7 percent).
  13. Dior is pleased to announce its charity partnership with The Clara Lionel Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by singer and songwriter Rihanna. The foundation is dedicated to supporting and funding groundbreaking and effective education, health, and emergency response programs around the world. Recently named The 2017 Humanitarian of the Year by the Harvard Foundation, Rihanna's charitable impact and philanthropic pursuits benefitting women and children have encompassed a vast global scope. In support of Rihanna's efforts as a philanthropist, Dior will donate a percentage of proceeds from each sale of the "We Should All Be Feminists" t-shirts to The Clara Lionel Foundation. The runway t-shirts will be available in all of Dior's retail boutiques worldwide and Dior.com until May 15, 2017. Additionally, for a limited time only, the "We Should All Be Feminists" t-shirts (including an exclusive version in black) will be available on Saks.com from March 14 till March 28.
  14. Rihanna rumbles 13-8 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated March 4) with "Love on the Brain," marking her milestone 30th top 10. Dating to the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception, only Madonna, with 38, and The Beatles, with 34, boast more. Rihanna breaks a tie for third place with Michael Jackson, who's tallied 29 top 10s, as a soloist. Notably, Rihanna sports the second-fastest accumulation of 30 Hot 100 top 10s (from an act's first-ever week in the region to the first week in the tier with its 30th). Having first hit the top 10 with "Pon De Replay" on the July 16, 2005-dated chart, she needed 10 years, seven months and two weeks to tally 30 top 10s. Only The Beatles hit the landmark more quickly, from "I Want to Hold Your Hand" to "Something," over a span of just five years, nine months and two weeks (Jan. 25, 1964-Nov. 8, 1969). While she's the leader for the most Hot 100 top 10s, Madonna took 12 years, eight months and two weeks from her first top 10, "Borderline," to her 30th, "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" (June 16, 1984-March 1, 1997; thus, with the latest Hot 100 dated March 4, 2017, we last celebrated an act reaching 30 top 10 hits 20 years ago to the week). Here's a recap of Rihanna's 30 Hot 100 top 10s (with 25 in a lead role).
