“Y’all should be real proud of yourselves, y’all know that?” said Rihanna to her crowd of fans, including humanitarians, world leaders, refugees, musicians, and celebrities, on Saturday night at Central Park as part of the fifth Global Citizen Festival. “Y’all are changing the world just by standing here right now. I’m not gon’ get too sentimental and s–t, but y’all killin’ it. Thank you so much.”
