Rihanna stunned in black at the Academy Awards on Sunday

Stop the press. If the Caribbean isn’t proud, something’s definitely wrong. Rihanna represents for the people of not only her homeland, Barbados, but she reps for all Caribbean islands that have, maybe unknown to her, adopted her. On Sunday, the ‘Lift Me Up’ singer gave every little Caribbean girl, a glimmer of hope in a world that can sometimes feel harsh and unkind. Rihanna stood tall and powerful at the 95th Academy Awards, delivering a flawless performance on stage, and before that, proving that she is as warm and embracing as she is professional and talented.

The Fenty Corp owner has accumulated countless accolades, she became America’s youngest self-made female billionaire in 2022, recently performed spectacularly at the Superbowl – baby in womb, and on Sunday, March 12th, Rihanna gracefully strutted the red carpet at the Academy Awards. Prepped to show off her rising baby bump for a second time, she cheerfully engaged photographers, smiling heartily and unhesitatingly answered to their calls for varied poses. Rihanna killed it, to say the least.

Born in Barbados as the world knows, Rihanna has never shied away from her roots. In fact, she has, time and time again, shown us all, what true representation and patriotism is. For that, she was declared a National Hero in her home country, in 2021. “May you continue to shine like a diamond,” said Prime Minister Mia Mottley in presenting Rihanna with the title two years ago ; And shone bright like a diamond, she certainly has.

On stage at the Academy Awards on Sunday, Rihanna performed, ‘Lift Me Up’ the soundtrack of the ‘Black Panther : Wakanda Forever,’ Marvel movie. The song was written by fellow vocalist, Nigerian artists, Tems. The women, together with co-writers, Ludwig Goransson and Ryan Coogler, had been nominated for Best Original Song, but did not win the award. Despite that, 35-year-old Rihanna once again reminded the world that her name and worth go beyond the confines of territory and organization, this as she lifted her voice to the world looking on, whether via television, social media or otherwise. Rihanna had done what we all anticipated. She made the world stop, stare and remember that she is an undeniable force, hailing from the West Indies.

As social media excitedly pushed out photos and videos captured of the superstar entertainer who is soon to be a mother of two, the Caribbean stood watch, happy to once again witness one of its own, deliver like she always has.

Rihanna received a standing ovation from the audience following her performance.
