Rihanna Has a Ball at TIME 100 Gala

Rihanna stunned in a fuchsia Marchesa gown and wavy black hair at the TIME 100 gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City on Tuesday night. The pop star was named one of the magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. She performed at the star-studded celebration, which was attended by Hillary Clinton, Jeremy Lin, Tyra Banks, and Chelsea Handler.

Her mother and grandfather proudly watched from the audience. “Well….2nt consisted of us singing Bob Marley, drinkin Vintage Scotch, and my mom thinkin a joke abt Kutcher was appropriate!” tweeted RiRi.

She told reporters on the red carpet that Bob Marley is one of her biggest influences. “I love him. I’m an incredible fan, but not only of his music. I’m a fan of him as an individual, what he really stood up for,” said RiRi, who performed an acoustic version of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “Redemption Song.”
