Headlines 19/09/2018

Amongst all her high-profile fashion shows and busy schedule, Rihanna makes time for the things that matter.

And it seems as though her recent work with Paris Goebel and the ReQuest girls has given her a soft spot for little old Aotearoa, after she gave a big shout out to our PM Jacinda Ardern on Twitter.

"Kia ora @jacindaardern! It's been a big year for you & NZ - congrats!" wrote the singer.

She then called for Ardern to join the Mandela 100 Global Citizen Festival to pledge funds for the Global Partnership for Education, which aims to get a quality education for children in the world's poorest countries.

"I hope you & @MFATgovtNZ agree that educating every child can change the world!" said the singer, linking to her Clara Lionel Foundation which she founded in 2012.
