Twitter Freaks Out After Hearing Rihanna Pronounce Her Name

Twitter is questioning their knowledge of Rihanna.

After British Vogue posted a video of the singer, 31, at her Fenty pop-up store in Paris last Thursday, the Internet is realizing they’ve been pronouncing her name wrong all these years.

In the clip, Rihanna pronounces her name “Ri-Anna” rather than “Re-Ah-Na.”

“So we’ve been pronouncing Rihanna’s name wrong this whole time,” one user wrote.

Another added, “Only Americans pronounce it as Rihaaaaaaana lol.”
