Rihanna has arrived back in NYC. Today (Feb 28th) she will go to Cambridge to accept the 2017 Harvard Humanitarian Of The Year.
The FENTY PUMA by Rihanna runway collection has almost arrived.
With a variety of footwear, apparel, and accessories – many of which made their debut on the runway this February – this collection ups the ante with a combination of sport influences, Japanese street culture, and classic Rihanna edge.
From a lacing cami bra to tearaway track pants, the items in this collection are ready to push limits. Shop Rihanna’s first full collection with PUMA for the latest styles for Men and Women during the pre-release on March 9 on PUMA.com.
In the meantime, check out the runway debut in our gallery.
Rihanna has been featured on Future’s new album HNDRXX, which released today.
Five years after teaming up on “Loveeeeeee Song” off 2012’s Unapologetic, Hendrix and RiRi are at it again. This time, over a spacious beat filled with hand snaps, the two harmonize about a potential love.
“Broken love driving backwards,” they sing together. “Making all the wrong turns / Saying all the wrong words / Dodging angels / Oh, let’s not be alone / Let’s be one / Tonight, let’s be selfish.”
Future has been singing Rihanna’s praises since at least 2012. At the time, he spoke with Rap-Up about their first collaboration. “RiRi is a blessing in disguise,” he said. “It just says a lot about her character. She takes risks and I love women that take risks because I feel like that’s the way to live. Do it your way.”
Rihanna, acclaimed musical artist, has been named the 2017 Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year. The popular singer will be awarded the Harvard Foundation’s Peter J. Gomes Humanitarian Award at a ceremony on Tue., Feb. 28 in Memorial Hall’s Sanders Theatre.
“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,” said Dr. S. Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation.
“She has also created the Clara and Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program (named for her grandmother and grandfather) for students attending college in the US from Caribbean countries, and supports the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, a multi-year campaign which will provide children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls, and those affected by lack of access to education in the world today. In 2014, Rihanna became the Global Partnership for Education Global Ambassador. “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.”
The Harvard Foundation recognizes prominent public-spirited leaders each year in honor of the late Reverend Professor Peter J. Gomes. Over the past 35 years, Harvard Foundation humanitarian awards have been presented to several distinguished humanists including, Swedish physician-statistician Hans Roosling, actor James Earl Jones, chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, Thorbjorn Jagland, UN Secretaries General Ban ki-Moon, Kofi Annan, Boutrous-Boutrous Ghali and Javier Perez de Quellar; gender rights advocate Malala Yousafzai, anti-child-labor spokesman Kailash Satyarthi, singer Lionel Richie, actor Ruby Dee, athlete Arthur Ash, Health and Human Services director, Dr. Louis W. Sullivan, and farmworker rights advocate Delores Huerta, to name a few.

With “Love on the Brain,” Rihanna joins Madonna (38) and The Beatles (34) as the only acts with at least 30 Hot 100 top 10s all time.
As previously reported, 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).

Rihanna arrived fashionably late in an Armani gown at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday (Feb 12th). Although she didn’t take home any awards she was the most discussed topic of the evening, enjoying herself in the audience with her friends.
For those who missed the gala, we’ve summed up the evening with a Twitter moment including tweets, gifs and videos. After the show Rihanna hosted her own ANTI themed after party at 1 OAK nightclub in LA.
