NEW YORK (AP) — Rihanna’s Diamond Ball shined in its fourth year and continued to make a name as one of the industry’s white-hot and must-attend parties — all while raising money for charity.
The pop star, fashionista and makeup mogul held the black-tie gala for her Clara Lionel Foundation on Thursday in New York City, where Childish Gambino performed and Tiffany Haddish bid $75,000 on earrings.
Issa Rae, the creator of HBO’s “Insecure,” hosted the event and happily told the audience: “Rihanna knows my name y’all!”
Trevor Noah, Odell Beckham Jr., Brian Tyree Henry, Paris Hilton, Normani, Meek Mill and A$AP Rocky were among the famous faces who attended the event.
Rihanna’s foundation promotes education and arts globally and assists emergency response programs. The 30-year-old singer launched it in 2012.
