On Tuesday (Feb. 4), the NAACP announced that the Fenty owner/international pop star will be awarded the President’s Award during the 51st NAACP Image Awards later this month.
The award show will be televised on BET for the first time ever on Feb. 22.
The NAACP stated that Rihanna will receive this award due to her “groundbreaking career as an artist and musician, but (someone who) has also distinguished herself as a stellar public servant.”
What an honor.
Rihanna will be in the line of previous, legendary recipients like Jay-Z, Muhammad Ali, and Condoleezza Rice.
