HISTORIC RIHANNA
Rihanna made history on May 24 at the kickoff of Morocco's annual Mawazine Music Festival by performing for a crowd of 150,000; a new record in the country's capital. Rihanna also made history by becoming the youngest artist to ever headline a show at Paris' Stade de France, at the age of 25, stealing the distinction from Lady Gaga who performed at the stadium the year before at the age of 26. Rihanna also performed at Millenium Stadium and two times at the Twickenham Stadium on June 10, 2013 and June 15 & 16, 2013 and again became the youngest artist ever to sell out the stadiums.

Rihanna is joining Anheuser-Busch InBev ‘s stable of music stars, which already includes Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake.

The pop star will take center stage in a campaign for Budweiser that will also include Jay-Z and reach more than 85 countries starting next week. The effort, called “Made for Music,” includes TV commercials featuring the two stars, limited-edition packaging, digital executions, out-of-home advertising and sponsorships of Rihanna’s and Jay-Z’s concerts.

Music has “been a tremendous force in shaping pop culture around the world,” he added, noting that it is a “universal language” that “transcends cultures, language and connects people from different backgrounds.

CALIFORNIA, United States, Thursday September 12, 2013 – There’s just no stopping Barbados’ pop princess Rihanna, who last week added two more accolades to her rapidly expanding kudos collection.

The six-time Grammy award-winner got the month off to a flying start when she was named the most viewed artiste ever on YouTube by reaching four billion views on September 1.

The “Talk That Talk” star went on to walk the walk in the best bod department, getting the nod for the sexiest bikini body of the year from no less an authority than Victoria’s Secret, designers of what is arguably some of the world’s sexiest lingerie.

The shapely 25-year-old singer has also been putting her famous curves to good use recently, hitting the streets as a live model and the best advertisement ever for her new clothing line River Island.

Continuing her stylish run, the celebrity fashionista is also scheduled to launch her TV show “Styled To Rock” in the autumn, maintaining her reputation as one of the hardest working entertainers in the business.

RIHANNA WINS BIGGEST AMA AWARD - 2013 ICON AWARD

The American Music Awards are completely fan-voted, so being given the first-ever Icon Award was a huge accomplishment! Rihanna was honored on Nov. 24 — and it was presented by the people who love her the most!

Congratulations to Rihanna! The 25-year-old looked super stunning at the 2013 American Music Awards when taking home her second award of the night – the Icon Award! It was presented by three people who really appreciated her — one who even referred to her as “the voice of our generation.”

 Rihanna Wins AMA Icon Award

 Bill Maher introduced Rihanna first, calling her “the voice of our generation,” which is a huge compliment. He then showed a great tribute video — a look back at Rihanna’s career, from Pon de Replay to Stay, and all the success in between.

After a sexy performance of “Diamonds,” we saw a video message from Jay Z, saying he was beyond proud of RiRi. Then an even bigger mentor came out to actually hand her the award — her mother, Monica Braithwaite. Like a proud mother, she gave an emotional speech for her daughter:

Rihanna, I’m so proud of you tonight. I know the journey and your career has not always been an easy one, but tonight I applaud and admire you for being so strong and so positive and so humble and so focused. And I mean, it’s amazing how you always manage to take good from all your experiences. I’m so pleased to be a part of this historic moment and I just want to say I’m proud to present to you the first ever AMA Icon Award.

So sweet! Rihanna admitted she was “terrible at giving speeches,” before running down her list of thank you’s — it was definitely one of the best acceptance speeches we’ve ever seen. She even admitted that growing up in Barbados, she annoyed her neighbors with her non-stop singing!

“Just about 20 years ago is when I really started making [everyone's] life a living hell and disrupting the neighborhood,” she said. She went on to thank everyone, including Jay and L.A. Reid, before then adding in her fans, the Rihanna Army.

“You keep me driven, you keep this special,” she said of the fans. “I can’t believe that at 25 years old, I’m holding an Icon Award.” While she was getting the cue to wrap it up, she said, “If you know me, you know that I love you and that I thank you and that I’m grateful.”
