Rihanna is The-Back-On-Top Superstar, Says Glamour
Rihanna is being honored as “The Back-On-Top Superstar” at tonight’s Glamour “Women Of The Year” awards ceremony.
JustJared.com is at the ceremony now and this is what the program reads about the 21-year-old superstar:
Every once in a while, a pop star comes along who is so magnetic, her music so utterly everywhere, that the world can’t take its eyes off her. Today that superstar is Robyn Rihanna Fenty. At 21 she has four number-one hits to her name and has sold more than 12 million albums, a number that’s soaring yet higher with the release of this month’s Rated R.
Adored for her distinctive fashion sense, Rihanna is more than just a style icon: In 2006 she quietly started the Believe Foundation, which provides education and medical supplies to needy children, and she has personally helped two leukemia sufferers find the bone marrow matches they needed to live. She has even turned her own trauma this year into something positive.
“Women can learn from that,” she says. “I feel like I represent a voice that really isn’t heard.”
