Pop star Rihanna in support of her Clara Lionel Foundation met with the French President Emmanuel Macron to discuss education.

Macron shared a photo on Twitter of the two of them sitting to talk, with the caption:

Rihanna, in a press briefing after the meeting, said the French President was incredibly welcoming.

She added that a big announcement is coming during the UN week in September, and her foundation is planning on embarking on more work in Africa in October.

She also shared a post on Twitter after the meeting saying:

Thank you Mr. President @EmmanuelMacron and Madame First Lady for the incredible meeting and passion for global and girls education! πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

She had been reaching out to world leaders through her twitter for a while now, once urging her over 70 million followers to tweet at Canadian President Justin Trudeau until he responded to her saying: β€œWe’ve got your back.”
