After releasing the sexy video for “Kiss it Better,” Rihanna took a break for her “ANTI World Tour” to attend BET’s “Black Girls Rock!” On April 1 in New Jersey.
While accepting the Rock Star Award at the annual event, the 28-year-old pop star gave a speech about being celebrated and wanting to inspire black girls.
“Thank you so much for celebrating us in a world that doesn’t celebrate us enough,” she said.
“The minute you learn to love yourself, you will not want to be anybody else…Role model is not the title they like to give me…but I think I can inspire a lot of young women to be themselves and that is half the battle. Hopefully one day I’ll be raising my own little black girl who rocks.”
“Black Girls Rock!” will air on BET on April 5 at 8 pm EST.
