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:

Rihanna shows AJ Hammer how to pronounce her name. www.youtube.com

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.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
