We've Been Saying Rihanna's Name Wrong For 10 Years

It's 'Ree-anna.'

Rihanna has kept her name on our lips for 10 years now. And while we've been listening to every word the Bad Gal has sung since she first came into our lives with her 2005 debut, Music of the Sun, maybe we haven't been listening to every word she's been saying.

Apparently we've been screaming Rihanna's name -- but pronouncing it all wrong, or at least not pronouncing the way that she does. Most of us say "Ree-Ah-na," but on Sunday, RiRi posted an Instagram video to announce that she'd just joined Snapchat and urged fans to follow her: "Rihanna, follow me!" she said, only she pronounced it "Ree-Anna."

Did you hear that? "Ree-Anna."

That's the sound of Rih subtly reminding us that we've been butchering her name for a decade. The Unapologetic singer has been real cool about -- though if it was me I'd be fourfiveseconds from wildin' -- but maybe, just maybe we should get it right before the new album hits.
