March 2, 2017 |  by  |  Fashion, POWERGIRLS  |  Share


Although though the megastar did not win any Grammy Awards for Anti *ROLLING MY EYES * Rih Rih did however receive an award when it comes to philanthropy. The Bajan Baddie was honored Tuesday 2/28/2017 as Harvard’s 2017 Humanitarian of the Year.


Due to her involvement in a number of charitable causes Harvard University decided that she would be the best recipient to receive the award. Rihanna supports the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, providing children with access to education in developing countries. She’s also built a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer in her home nation of Barbados.

Thank you @harvard 🙏🏿

    CTRL = Black Girl Magic! Congrats to Sza on creating a classic debut album!
    Buzzed-about singer/songwriter SZA nets her first top 10 album with the arrival of her debut full-length studio effort, Ctrl, at No. 3. It bows with 60,000 units, of which 25,000 are in traditional album sales. The set was powered by streams, as the title earns 33,000 SEA units (equating to 49.52 million streams for the songs on the album). The remainder of its 60,000-start is comprised of TEA (2,000 units). Ctrl is SZA’s second top 40-charting effort, following the No. 39 peak of her mixtape Z back in 2014. - Billboard

    Jay Z and Beyonce' are officially parents of twins!! Word on the net is that the megastars welcomed a baby boy and baby girl sometime last week. No official date has been confirmed, however we do know that the world's most popular twins are here!! Grandpa Matthew Knowles took to his twitter to celebrate the arrival of his grandtwins.
    I'm sure it will be a while before we see the babies, but I'm sure once we do our hearts will melt. I'm so happy Jay now has a son!!! He wanted a little Shawn Carter for a while now. Blue Ivy now has two playmates. Congrats to the Carters on the double bundle of joy.
