Rihanna Opens the 2012 MTV VMAs

Rihanna

Rihanna kicked off the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards with a red-hot performance. The Bajan beauty performed her new single “Cockiness (Love It)” with special guest A$AP Rocky (who grabbed her ass and gave her a kiss) and had the Staples Center on their feet with her Calvin Harris-assisted hit “We Found Love.”

Lady Gaga praised RiRi’s performance. “what a lovely performance by @Rihanna! I feel like I’m sixteen again watching the VMAS, and then i remember i get to do this too,” tweeted Gaga.

Watch the performance below.

    Tash Reply:

    @Meme, CHRISTIANS don’t bring others down. INDIVIDUALS may. The fact everyone has common sense and you still don’t see that is FOOLISH. But guess what? I won’t trip because God sees you and he isn’t pleased. Word of advice, I’d repent if I were you. God made land and brought you on this earth. Not Rihanna. You don’t know any better so I’ll pray for you.

    @Meme, do you really have to ask why your comment is disgusting and disrespectful? Let me tell you something, ‘Phuck your heavenly father….lord Rihanna is the only god, this sentence IS DISRESPECTFUL.
    Second, nobody started to talk about religions/Christian belief, the only person who started talking about that IS YOU.
    ‘u keep ur god…ill keep mine. what makes u think ur god is better than mine. soon all of you will be believers of fenty faith,
    I will NEVER believe/worship somebody else than God, girl are you brainwashed or something? Now then if you talk about The Lord/God or Jesus, ATLEAST USE CAPITALS.

    ummmm, awful, just awful… Like Beyonce wouldve been singing dancing going hard , Ciara even though she has a lack of a career at this time is a way better performer then Ms. Fenty. This chick is one of the top selling woman in this business and still her vocals are always chopped and then she lip syncing the whole performance. The girls team does a hell of a job creating these elaborate sets to disguise her lack of skill. Ciara please come back and really show these chicks how to dance and entertain a crowd because youre an amazing talent that doesnt get the credit she desrves due to a bad management team, if you had riri’s team you would kill careers and Beyonce these chicks need to bow down to the Queen because they aint F***kin with you.

    I don’t know if I would prefer her to sing more during her performances or not. Her voice is awful live but during this performance she BARELY sang. She attempted to dance but her backup dancers stole the show from her. Not a good perfomance IMO from Rihanna but the effects were good! She’s been in the game for 7 years now and I feel like she does NOT belong on a stage.

    I REALLY LIKE RIHANNA BUT ALL HER PERFORMANCES MAKE ME CRINGE. EVERY TIME I WANT TO SEE HER PERFORM MY FAVORITE SONGS, SHE LETS ME DOWN. I DON’T KNOW IF ANY OF YOU GUYS SEE THIS BUT WHEN SHE DOES HER SET SHE SEEMS UNINTERESTED, LIKE SHE DOESN’T EVEN TRY TO GIVE 100%. IT WAS LIKE THAT A FEW YEARS BACK WHEN I SAW HER PERFORM DISTURBIA AT THE MTV AWARDS, I WAS SO IN LOVE WITH THAT SONG, AND SHE CAME OUT AND IT WAS WACK. I DON’T KNOW WHO SHE HAS IN HER TEAM BUT THEY REALLY GAS HER UP…SHE NEEDS SOMEONE TRUTHFUL TO TELL HER STEP HER GAME UP. SHE SHOULD PUT DOWN THE CIGARETTES AND CALL UP A VOCAL COACH. MUCH LUCK TO HER…

    Thanks for your work on this. I’ve been keeping an eye on your blog and you are relaly into the “behind the scenes” on the polls which is great. I sure hope you are right. I know we have to be careful not to fall for the mainstream media bias…and their headlines are full of lies, so why wouldn’t their polling practices be altered to reflect what they want to be the end result. We’ve got to keep up the keeping up…get out to vote and make sure that those around us know the TRUTH! Thanks again!
