The honors for Rihanna continue to roll in after the singer received a humanitarian award from Harvard. On Monday, the singer was once again honored for her charity work as well as her fashion sense with an award given by the Parsons School of Design.
During her acceptance speech, Rihanna felt the need to specifically talk to millennials who are constantly torn down by older generations. “You should be celebrated for every aspect of your growth and your growing pains,” Rihanna said. “You should be celebrated for all the effort that you put into building your future, for being different, for not being given enough credit—for not having to use eye cream!”
The singer then announced the winner of the Design Fellowship program which will allow the honoree to design a merchandise line for Rihanna’s Clara Lionel foundation.
