Superstar, Rihanna, arrived at B.E.T.'s annual Black Girls Rock celebration to receive their "Rock Star" award, and some of the things she said in her acceptance speech should not be ignored. With one of the most powerful statements being "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."
With the young mogul being criticized for her taste in clothes (or lack there of depending on her mood), to her name being thrown into every tabloid story in hollywood, having her "hooked" up with any man within 10ft of her, people have judged her to be an "unfit" role model. Yet, role model should never be looked at to fit society's mold. Especially with how messed up society is, how can it ever determine what a role model should or shouldn't be.
#rihanna X #blackgirlsrock X #acceptancespeech #Godbless Role Models don't come in neat perfect packages with no worn edges, or even torn spots. They are flawed, yet didn't give up. They persevere, and are determined to be the best version of THEM, God has set forth. Each is different, the paths are not the same, but God is able to get us all to where HE called us to, ....When We Trust Him and follow Him! #celebrityministry #rolemodel #voicetothegeneration #chrianna #God #kids #marriage #love #Christ #chrisbrown
