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.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
