Rihanna keeps telling people how to pronounce her name but the world never seems to listen.
The Internet was once again reminded of the correct pronunciation during a video posted to Twitter by British Vogue. RiRi was promoting her Fenty collection at a pop-up in Paris when she said, “Hello, British Vogue, it’s Rihanna. And I want to welcome you to Paris where I am launching Fenty Maison.”
Rihanna said her name as “Ree-Anna” while probably every other human on earth says “Re-Ah-Na” and now everyone is up in arms … though don’t expect anyone to change anything.
See, RiRi tried to set the record straight as far back as 2012. During a red carpet interview with AJ Hammer, he straight up asked her how to pronounce it and she said the same thing … and yet no one seemed to learn their lesson.
And it’s safe to assume everyone will keep saying it however they please.
