Da Vibes celebrates Barbadian singer Rihanna and Jamaica’s Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, who were honored by their inclusion on Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” list.
When Bajan superstar Rihanna strutted her stuff at this year’s eighth annual Time 100 Gala at Lincoln Centre last night (April 24), she had every reason to celebrate. The five-time Grammy Award winner had not only secured her own place on Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” list, but had done so in style by bagging the number eight spot.
The 24-year-old megastar was in very good company, sharing the Caribbean spotlight on the American news magazine’s coveted list with Jamaica Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller. Rihanna and Simpson Miller were among 38 women honoured – the highest number in any year since the list’s inception.
According to Time, the annual list recognises the activism, innovation and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals and includes people who inspire, entertain, challenge and change the world. It is divided into five categories — moguls, breakouts, icons, pioneers and leaders. [. . .] A full list and related tributes [appears] in the April 30 issue of Time magazine.
