Say "Rihanna." Go ahead, say it out loud!

Now evaluate how you pronounced it.

Probably like "Ree-AH-nah," right?

Well according to Rihanna herself, that's actually not the right way to say her name.


In a video posted to British Vogue's Twitter account, Rihanna identified herself as "Ree-ANN-uh".

Take a listen:

Yikes.

We've been saying it wrong for at LEAST 14 years, considering her first hit single, "Pon De Replay," came out in 2005.

But, to be fair, she did tell HLN's AJ Hammer how to say her name in 2012:

So really, we have no excuse.





Also, did you know Rihanna moved to London? Because she totally did.

Rihanna also totally tried to tell us again in 2015 how to pronounce her name via Instagram:

So again, she has been really trying to tell us.

We are the worst.







Do you think we will learn this time?





This time, we will hopefully learn from our mistakes.

As a child, I saw Sleeping Beauty and could not get over how messed up Maleficent was. She cursed a child because she wasn't invited to the birthday party?! Who does that?! Has she never heard of therapy?

She later turns into a dragon to try and kill a prince before he can reach the film's titular character and save the day. It's a downright creepy scene, actually. Short but thrilling.

And what about Cinderella? Who knew Disney movies could introduce us to the horrors of child abuse? The Evil Stepmother needs a therapist, too. (Did you know that both Maleficent and the Evil Stepmother were voiced by the same actress? It probably explains a lot.)

Time flies... before you know it, it's gone. Suppose there are things you really want to do: Getting into certain habits is a lot easier to do when you're younger. It's a lot easier to go to the gym and exercise on a regular basis, for example, when you're in 20s than when you're in your 30s, 40s, or 50s.

But there's nothing wrong with starting now––you'll notice the benefits eventually.

After Redditor Tr0az asked the online community, "What do you wish you started doing from a young age?" people shared their stories.

There are basic life lessons that are life-saving and cost-effective that we are all intimidated by but, in actuality, they take all of a few minutes to acquire. We all condition ourselves to believe that certain skills in life are just too complex for regular joes to master. The truth is... you do not need an Ivy League degree to learn how to clean out the water heater, clip your pet's nails, or change out a toilet. Who knew? So many of us have been forced to acquire new skills while we've been trapped at home and we're going to be better off for it.

Redditor u/goodspeed19 wanted to know what lessons we should all be learning while stuck in quarantine that will make us more useful in the future by asking..... What's a skill you can learn in 30 minutes to one hour that is extremely useful/cool?
