Rihanna Makes Time's 100 Most Influential People List

Rihanna has been in the news a lot lately for various reasons one might not be so proud of. She's taken risque photos and posted them, sent out questionable tweets, and basically taken her "bad gal" image to all new heights.

Today, the pop princess is in the news for something she can be proud of 20 yrs from now. Every year TIME- arguably one of the most respected publications out, features the top 100 most influential people in the world.

Rihanna landed a spot on that list this year! Check out what fashion designer Stella McCartney had to say about Rihanna below. Congrats to the Bajan bombshell!
I can’t remember when Rihanna and I first met, but I think it was near a dance floor and one of her tracks was playing. The thing I remember was her being a normal person, not what you’d expect of a young woman about to take over the world. She’s one of the coolest, hottest, most talented, most liked, most listened to, most followed, most impressive artists at work today, but she does it in her own stride. She works hard, very hard. She gives to her fans, friends and foundation not just herself but her energy and spirit.

Rihanna, 24, goes out of her way to support the people she believes in. She is one of the few people I know in that world of fame and celebrity who aren’t all about themselves. She’ll give a real part of herself to an ordinary person she may meet, and that’s rare.

This is the beginning for Rihanna — she has so much more to do and to give. She is just getting going, so watch out. She’s the Barbados ambassador for youth and culture, and she’s coming to a town near you.
