Over the weekend Bad gal Rihanna was honored at BET’s “Black Girls Rock!” celebration at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.
“Thank you so much for celebrating us in a world that doesn’t celebrate us enough,” she said (via E! Online). “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.”
