Rihanna slays once philanthropy once again.  The “BBHMM” artist is receiving another award, but this time by Parsons School of Design.

Riri’s work in music, fashion, and philanthropy have been highly recognized in the past year.  Her most recent award was from Harvard for their Humanitarian of the Year award. Rihanna also recently hosted her Fenty x Puma Fashion Show for the Fall season.

Eileen Fisher and Neiman Marcus are being recognized for the award as well alongside Riri at the 69th annual gala on May 22 at Pier 60.  The award from Parsons honors individuals who empower young women. “I consistently find creative and exciting designs coming from Parsons alumni, so I feel a deep connection to the school. But I am especially grateful that Parsons would recognize me for the work I’ve done in regards to philanthropy,” Rihanna said in her statement on The Cut. 

There’s no stopping this bad bish anytime soon.  Keep up the boss work, Riri!
