We're less than two months away from Rihanna's annual Diamond Ball affair and the pop titan is pulling all the strings to ensure that this year's event, which raises donations for the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), is one of the very best.
On Friday (July 19), the chart-topper took to Instagram to unveil details surrounding the line-up for this year's celebration. "Our 5th Annual #DIAMONDBALL is just 2 months away!!! I'm so excited to announce our host @sethmeyers ... and for the main event, the one and only @Pharrell is performing!!!" she captioned the charity's artwork, which also included a mention of DJ Khaled. The fifth annual ceremony is scheduled to take place on September 12 in New York City.
While Rihanna recently teamed up with Meyers for a segment of day drinking for his late-night talk show, Skateboard P is rumored to appear on the pop titan's long-awaited new album, which may or may not be coming before the year wraps.
As it has in recent years, this year's event will see celebrities come together to raise awareness and contribute to the Clara Lionel Foundation's global initiatives in line with education, health and emergency response programs around the world. In 2018, the Diamond Ball saw Issa Rae host the affair, while Kendrick Lamar and DJ Mustard offered up entertainment for the night. Initially launched in 2014, the event has seen previous special guests like Brad Pitt, Kim Kardashian, Big Sean, Will Smith, Kylie Jenner, Zendaya and Kevin Hart.
