Popstar Rihanna has asked her fans, who are demanding her to release her new album soon, to back off as her prime focus right now is doing her bit in saving the world from the coronavirus pandemic.
The Grammy winner was one of the first Hollywood personalities who pledged support towards the relief efforts in fighting the COVID-19 outbreak.
Rihanna has been teasing new music for quite some time now and eager admirers got an earful from her during an Instagram Live. Her last studio album was ‘Anti’ which was released in 2016.
Taking a swipe at US President Donald Trump, the Barbadian singer said, “If one of y’all motherf***ers ask me about the album one more time when I’m tryna save the world, unlike y’all president….on sight.”
Rihanna’s non-profit organisation Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently donated USD 2.1 million each to help victims of domestic violence in Los Angeles during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order.
Also, CLF and rapper Jay-Z’s Shawn Carter Foundation donated USD 2 million to support undocumented workers, the incarcerated, homeless and elderly populations, and children of frontline healthcare workers in Los Angeles and New York City amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier, Rihanna, through CLF, also donated USD 5 million to support Direct Relief, Partners In Health, Feeding America, the International Rescue Committee and World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund as they continue to fight the pandemic in the US, the Caribbean and Africa.
