Rihanna Receives Shoe Of The Year At 2016 FN Achievement Awards

A covered up Rihanna attended the 30th Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York City Tuesday night where she picked Shoe Of The Year award for her Fenty X Puma Creepers. The Bajan princess wore a black long-sleeved top with a black velvet maxi skirt accessorized with black gloves and a baseball cap. Of course, her footwear was the award-winning Creeper. RiRi made history by becoming the first woman to win the award.

In her acceptance speech she said she was “proud to be a woman and proud to be a young woman from Barbados, especially.” She added, “I didn’t expect people to love it the way I do, and the way they’ve supported it means so much to me. All the Creeper fans and all the kids in the street who inspire me by doing things their own way.”

The singer and on-again-off-again boyfriend Drake has seemingly confirmed they are broken up yet again. They were both in Abu Dhabi and apparently did not link up. He even failed to join her for they collabo, Work. His DJ was reportedly there supporting her but no Drake was around.

Next up for the singer, she will sing the national anthem today at the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Barbardos’ independence.
