“The definition of stupidity is doing something over and over again when it isn’t working,” according to Rihanna, who told a group of children that “if Jesus hasn’t answered your prayers, try praying to Satan.“
Rihanna has been honored by the Barbados government who re-named the street she grew up on as a child after her, and speaking at the official ceremony to unveil the newly-named Rihanna Drive in Bridgetown, Barbados on Wednesday she took the opportunity to hand out advice to young Bajan children.
“I know it isn’t easy being born in Bridgetown, Barbados, it’s a struggle and you have to work twice as hard to achieve anything. You have to hustle. I’m still hustling, but I am living proof that you can do anything,” Rihanna told the children in attendance, before adding, “If you came here for tips I can give y’all the biggest one straight off.”
“How many of y’all have prayed to Jesus for years, prayed with all your hearts, and got nothing back from him?” Rihanna asked the audience, comprised mostly of children and early teens. “Hands up. Be honest, it’s OK.“
After a few of the children raised their hands, the Diamonds singer said:
“Jesus doesn’t care about you. Do you really think He even listening? Hot tip y’all, because you are my people. Be efficient, go to Satan,” Rihanna said, before Prime Minister Freundel Stuart hastily changed the topic, and shocked parents intervened and removed their children.
