Rihanna is gearing up for her annual Diamond Ball which raises funds to support her Clara Lionel Foundation, created by the Grammy Award winning singer to fund education and emergency response programs throughout the globe.”

This year, the Ball will honor Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley and civil rights activist Shaun King. They will receive the Diamond Ball Award at Rihanna’s fifth annual star-studded gala, which will also feature performances from Pharrell Williams and DJ Khaled.

“I can’t imagine a better night than this year’s Clara Lionel Foundation event with Seth Meyers, Pharrell and DJ Khaled,” said RiRi in her statement. “I am particularly honored to present Prime Minister Mottley and Shaun King with this year’s Diamond Ball Awards for their groundbreaking work. We are so thankful to them for joining us and making the night better than ever.”

Once social media got word that Shaun King - who some dub as controversial - would be honored at RiRi's Diamond Ball, all hell broke loose. Folks started whipping out receipts as to why King shouldn't be recognized for anything at the singer's event.
