Rihanna to Receive Icon Award at AMAs

Rihanna

That Rihanna reign just won’t let up. The pop powerhouse will be honored with the Icon Award at the 2013 American Music Awards later this month.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the 25-year-old singer is the first artist to receive the special merit award.

“The first-ever Icon Award was created to honor an artist whose body of work has made a profound influence over pop music on a global level,” said AMA producer Larry Klein. “Rihanna’s iconic and innovative sound has enabled her to become one of the most influential and bestselling artists of all time.”

She has sold 50 million albums and 180 million singles worldwide throughout the course of her eight-year career. Her seven albums have produced 12 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and she holds the title for best-selling digital artist of all time.

Rihanna is also scheduled to perform on the telecast, which airs live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 8 p.m. on ABC.

She is nominated in four categories including Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist, and Favorite Soul/R&B Album for Unapologetic.

Other AMA performers include Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, TLC, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus, Kendrick Lamar, Ke$ha, One Direction, and this year’s host, Pitbull.

    @Harold, @me, billboard – Rihanna is arguably the biggest pop star in the world
    The globe and mail – Rihanna’s star is hot and still on the rise – Beyoncé’s Sasha Fierce is now Sasha Fears
    Artist direct – Rihanna commanded the stage with the presence of an icon, upholding that rockstar status…By the end of the night, it was clear that not only is Rihanna a rockstar, but she’s a legend in her own right unlike anybody else out there.”
    La weekly – (she’s) a popstar of the highest caliber

    I mean congrats .. I’m a big fan but these awards really don’t mean anything anymore. Icon? Style icon yes but thanks to her stylist (and kelis). Successful music career? Without a doubt but
    with what artistry. Congatulations but shes got far more to prove to be considered an
    Icon.

    [Reply]

    mya Reply:

    @Meme, Numbers DO lie. If you think Rihanna has sold 50 million albums. When her biggest selling album has sold 8 million and the only album that sold close to that was LOUD which sold 6.5 millio and the rest has sold under 3 million. Numbers indeed LIE.

    Let’s do the math shall we.

    Rihanna’s biggest selling album which is GGGB which sold 8 million worldwide. In order for her to have sold 50 million plus album, each her of 7 albums would have sold 6.5-7 million EACH. And we know that can’t be true when first 2 albums barley sold 2 million, Music of The Sun and A Girl Like Me. And her last 2 albums sold over 3 million ww each TTT and UA, and barley 1 million in the sates. Which mean there is NO WAY she sold 50 million albums, in other words NUMBERS DO LIE.

Neither is beyonce…who could barely form a sentence.

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @meme, of course songs are demo’d idiot in order to ensure verse & hook placements. google sia singing diamonds, sia wrote the song for another artist who passed & ri’s label picked it up. but listen to sia’s version & ri’s version … ri copied sia to the best of “singing” ability, inflection & all. in bey’s liner notes, she is listed as a co-writer for some of her songs NOT all. why would she have to steal when all she would really have to do is buy it? rihanna is not a recording artist, she is a pop tart. her fame is courtesy of ig & twitter because loosers live you have no life & follow her every move. by the way, beyonce can form sentences, harmonies AND melodies which puts her far above rihanna. don’t let this award go to your head or her head … the ama’s are GIVING this to her period. 50 million ALBUMS, 180 million SINGLES = a singles artist! #girlbye

    @karamelkisses, if you are a song writer that wrote your own music there wouldnt be wrote-for-wrote demos of the song recarded months b4 the artist recorded fool.

    Yes sia did write diamonds, and rihanna made that very clear. she doesnt need to steal the spotlight from talented song writers…shes the recording artist. Unlike beyonce who pays for credits yet never hold a pen in her life.

    congrats ri! the army is loving this right now however, let’s add some facts to this post rap-up. she’s sold 50 million ALBUMS and 180 millions SINGLES, which would include her own AND all of her collabs. for the past 7 years, she’s released albums ANNUALLY. the entire industry would get an “icon” award if they released music EVERY year. once upon a time, you had to be able to stand flat footed & sing or put on a performance. however these tarts like Rihanna, Justin beiber, miley cyrus have got to be thanking God for ig & twitter because without it they wouldn’t be half the successes that they are. for all you all shouting out beyonce, stop it! honey, beyonce is not thinking about Rihanna. when Rihanna starts racking up critically acclaimed awards NOT microwavable made up awards, we’ll talk!

    Are you on crack? Versatile as in I like talking about popping my pussy internationally? Then saying I want to be loved, then I don’t want to be loved them going back to beat her down brown. They’re giving her that award because def jam is making moves behind the scenes and they just want to give it to a random black person, someone that sounds like a crow. Not someone who relates to people, is understanding. Connects and is versatile with their melody, beats, the way thy speak to their crowd, switches things up to sound refreshing and different then basic shit. Rihanna is famous cause she sees herself and some used up sex toy cause since Chris beat her she’s lost all of her self esteem, cyber bullying people and shit. If she doesn’t stop her antics which her fans see as talent she’ll end up like Whitney in a bathtub and Melissa’s gonna pee on her grave. That her fans like YOU will blame othera for her actions. We have no one to look up to as a black female. Aaliyah was a phenomenal example and she’s gone. To love your yourself be positive and to make music that connects to your audience and is honest, fun, and timeless. She should have given to someone who deserves like Drake, Maxwell, Anita 
    Baker, Usher, TLC, Tamia, Mary J. Blige. I’m just throwing out any names right now of people who are also imperfect but use their career for more harm than good and try to be as real as they can be, including, positive, and actually versatile and amazing at their musical gifts. Rihanna Robyn Fenty is trashy!!! She’s puts out crap. Not real maid people will be listening to decades from now and can still relate to in their own way with that artist and versa. That’s the meaning of being an artist. Not leaking your nudes. She might as well join King of Diamonds or the porn industry. She’s a disgrace to the black women of today especially us black Carribean women. Her family doesn’t care because they’re getting money and for some people that’s what it’s all about so they let her act the fool and embarrass them like how she stuck her middle fingers up w/ her mom in that pic. No respect and the bitch dancing like a zombie and always late and high as hell at her concerts. Versatile and talented I think not. All Rihanna’s albums lately have been about fucking random niggas and fist brown. And that’s who we should be looking up to. Our daughters , cousins, siblings? The black race has enough embarrassments as it is. Rihanna sounds like my cat trying to orgasm. She will be forget quickly, and they’ll be another trashier version of her. She needs rehab.

  45. King Fierce

    Queen and Slayanna??? When her last 4 singles flopped???? Rihanna ALWAYS releases music when no one else is which is why she does better. Its because she is literally the only thing good on the radio at that point in time. Prime example, Rihanna has released an album in November for the last four years but this year when Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Mylie Cyrus, and Britney Spears are releasing new albums Rihanna is NOWHERE to be found. Rihanna is queen of following the “pop music formula”, she knows the game and she knows it well. Everything is calculated, from her dating Drake before Loud came out and her “reconciliation” with Chris Brown upon the release of “Unapologetic”. Rihanna is an image and not the talent, she still sound horrible live, she can;t dance she just poses, and she is a pathetic individual. She is a glorified mean girl whose biggest talent is looking fierce and taking dick. The people with the real talent are her songwriters, photographers, and producers. She is a prop, you could easily replace Rihanna with another hot chick and no one would even notice. You can;t do that with Beyonce, Michael Jackson, or any other true icon. True Beyonce doesn’t write all her music but she has writing music in the past, Survivor and Bootylicious, and she does co-write….Rihanna has never.written.anything…except for bitch-ass tweets and Instagram posts. Unfortunately we live in a time when Mylie Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga are considered good music so its no surprise that Rihanna is receiving an icon award, she represents, and is responsible, for the character, or lack off, of our music today. Rihanna couldn’t touch Beyonce.on.anything…say what you want but you know its true. Rihanna is a slut who knows the game and plays it well. But watch out RihannaNavy, your “Queen” is starting to slip…….

    @King Fierce, the fact that you would put the King’s name anywhere near Beyonce’s unoriginal, overrated ass, just murdered any credibility you may have attempted to have. You think Rihanna can be replaced but Beyonce can’t? Lmao! Now that’s funny. Fact is, both of their asses can be replaced. Neither of them have done anything that we haven’t seen before and hasn’t been done BETTER. Beyonce has never written a song by herself, much less a HIT song by herself. We don’t even need to discuss Michael’s songwriting abilities, that would shut this entire comment section down. We can discuss how Beyonce has stolen credit for things she’s never written. How bout Des’ree’s Kissing you? Let’s get into the fact that she took Jon McLaughlin’s Smack Into You and changed the title to Smash Into You and she didn’t change not one lyric to HIS song, yet slapped her name on the writing credits!! Do we need to go over how she completely stole that Belgian choreographer’s entire concept/choreography and video for Countdown? I can go on and on about Beyfraudulent, but you should get the point. Rihanna isn’t original or groundbreaking either, but at least she doesn’t lie about it or steal it and then when she’s caught backtrack and say she was “inspired”. Beyonce is nothing but a howling thief.

    King Fierce Reply:

    @KOP, Bootylicious, Survivor, Me, Myself, and I, every song on B’Day except Irreplaceable, Resentment, and Listen all have been written by Beyoncé. Beyoncé has never stolen credit for songs that she hasn’t written, if you believe me read the credits from her albums….Jon McLaughlin gave her ” Smack into you” and she gave him BOTH writing and song credits, she gave the writer of If I Were A Boy credits also. As for “Kissing You” she got into trouble because she violated the agreement that she wasn’t supposed to make a video for the song and I believe also that she wasn’t supposed to make changes to the song…which she did so there goes another writing credit to Mrs. Carter. I will give you Countdown because the part that she stole was unnecessary and had nothing to do with the rest of the video. I see you went on a little WikiBinge but i beg you to read the ENTIRE paragraph before you go running to your keyboard, like most Rihanna fans you only deal with the surface and read into everything and run with it. And if, as you say,Rihanna is replaceable, then she mos def is not an ICON. Beyoncé is an icon because she cannot be stopped and no one has even touched what she’s done on stage, except Mr. Jackson. People have been saying Beyoncé was done since she came out but she has slain every performer people have pitted her up against..Ashanti, Mya, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, etc. Only an icon can outsell tour shows with NO NEW MUSIC, only an icon can fall down a flight of stairs and get back up like nothing happened. You may not Beyoncé but she has proven time and time again that she slays.
    /-)

    P.s.
    Let’s say I give you the whole Rihanna is an icon bs……she has said time and time again that she looks up to Beyonce and hat no one is better than her. So if an icon looks up to Beyoncé to be great then……………………………

    @King Fierce, Okay, i see your point. I do not hate Beyonce, i only hate her when she’s being compared with THE BEST (RIHANNA) ! She is really a very good performer, and i will not take that away from her. On the other and Rihanna has NVERRRRR said nobody is better than beyonce, so get your lying ass straight! She said in her early career that she looks up to beyonce, that’s exactly what she said. She gives Mariah Carey all the praises, because that’s her idol, NOT BEY! Rihanna has done so much in her 8 years, so much that others who have been here since dinosaurs have failed to do. She has never got all the credit she deserves, and yes..we can all think of others who could get this award, but this is a modern time, rihnna has been consistent,determined,focused and have accomplished a lot, A LOT. I feel very sad for you though because those long paragraphs you wrote WILL NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT SHE WILL BE RECEIVING THE FIRST EVER ICON AWARD! There’s nothing you can do boo.

    P.S
    Make sure you tune in to see her collecting the award, and do some yoga to release your hating emotions, bye :).

    @RIHANNABISSH, The only thing that Rihanna is the best at is keeping dicks warm. You like Rihanna are saying/doing a lot but not really doing much. Nothing you’ve said has been true or had any relevance to this argument. What has Rihanna done that no one else has done? What has she accomplished besides being a complete bitch and a whore for attention?
    I’m not mad because you are full of it, none of your arguments have any credibility, they are half-formed just like ALL of Rihanna’s performances….she sounds like a castrated goat, never dances, and acts “hard, how does that make her the best? She most certainly is NOT a performer. Check every time that Rihanna is asked about Beyoncé, she always praises and looks up to her. Here’s yet another reason why. Beyoncé is the true icon, in all her interviews Beyoncé has never been asked about Rihanna. Peasants are asked about the royalty and royalty doesn’t discuss peasants.

    P.s.
    Beyoncé with only four albums has outsold all seven of Rihanna’s combined. Icons like Michael Jackson, Patti Labelle, and Luther Vandross praise Beyoncé. Everybody who is anybody calls Beyoncé the Queen and respects her. Nobody says that about Rihanna….good night and CHECKMATE.

And yes hse gets asked about beyonce a lot, but she’s still in her league. winning more awards, more relevant, more consistent, more versatile, more educated ( beyonce has the vocabulary of a five year old child). Beyonce’s sales are NO WHERE close to rihanna’s, number don’t lie boo. Beyonce is no queen, The queen lives in England boo. She’s nothing but an fake artist who hides her true personality in order to maintain a good girl image, whereas rihanna is true to all that she does and doesn’t pretend to be someone that she isn’t. RIHANNA WILL BE RECEIVING THE AWARD. STAY MAD, STAY PRESSED, EAT YOUR HEART OUT, KILL YOURSELF, TELL YOUR MOM, REPORT IT TO CNN, CRY ME A RIVER, PUT A RING ON IT, DIE…

    P.S. Rihanna has 12 #1 Singles, 4 #1 Albums, and not because they weren’t number 1 in the US, doesn’t mean they aren’t still #1 one albums, because they were number 1 in the UK. She’s the best digital female artist, her fan base triple’s beyonce’s, Has accomplished more than beyonce in just her 8 years and we ALL KNOW THAT RIHANNA CAN DANCE, SHE DOESN’T HAVE TO DANCE EVERYTIME LIKE BEYONCE. Beyonce release her album 4 and did a video for every song, AND NOT ONE OF THOSE SONGS WENT TO NUMBER 1. WHAT A PHUCKING SHAME, THERE’S NOTHING ICONIC ABOUT THAT, SHE SHOULD JUST STICK TO TOURING AND REPEATING HER LAME ASS SONGS AND ROUTINE. Oh, and have you ever wondered that Rihanna might be the only artist that doesn’t buy her own albums ????? RIHANNA IS AN ICON, AND SHE WILL BE COLLECTING THAT AWARD, #navy !

    King Fierce Reply:

    @RIHANNABISSH, Yet again you prove how ignorant Rihanna really is, but this time I will play your game, the numbers game. According to you women lie, men lie, but numbers don’t and I totally agree. So here goes…and just so that you have even a fighting chance we won’t count Beyoncé’s awards with Destiny’s Child, even thought lez be honest…..that was her early solo career. Beyoncé has 293 awards to Rihanna’s 250. Beyoncé has 16 Grammies to Rihanna’s 6. Beyoncé made $85 million this year alone which is $5 million less than RIHANNA’S ENTIRE NET WORTH, so who really is the peasant here seeing as Beyoncé makes even more than $85 million in the years she has an album out and goes into HYPERdrive and she’s been making those numbers consecutively in the past 7 years. I don’t hear ANY of Rihanna’s selling out while almost every show of Beyoncé’s has. I mean Beyoncé is making waaaay more off of a tour with no new music than Rihanna is with a tour to support her new cd, cuz it damn sure aint an album, and she’s supposedly versitle and an icon. No matter what way you try to twist it Rihanna has done the same thing since 2007, cut her hair, look sexy, and sing about sex and dancing. No waut, now all she sings about is sex so I guess that’s somewhat new. You accuse Beyoncé of being something she’s not when Rihanna sits there and acts all hard when she got her ass handed to her BY CHRIS BROWN…Beyoncé would’ve crushed him if he had dared. Beyoncé has talent and integrity, she doesn’t care what people think as long as she is doing something that’s true to her. Rihanna grabbed the EDM lifeline in 2007 and has clung onto it every since. She would never take a risk and do what is true to her against popular music opinion. SHe is the embodiment of SLUT..be it for the media, sex, or music. Beyoncé is the ONLY female to win the International Artist Award, she has been award the Millennium Award at the Billboard Awards….I don’t see Rihanna’s name there so…..take your advice kill yourself, tell CNN, call Oprah etc because you are aboard a sinking ship my dear and your captain’s days are numbered. Bey Season is here, make sure your knees are ready.

    @King Fierce, You obviously cannot read! Why are you so stupid and dumb ? Read my last reply and show me where did I call beyonce a peasant ?? You’re the peasant here, chill out. So you’ve decided to play the numbers game, and I did not say numbers don’t lie, because sometimes they do, beyonce be buying her own shit! READ WITH UNDERSTANDING YOU DUMB CHILD! So beyonce has 293 Awards & 451 Nominations, Rihanna has 250 Awards & 554 Nominations plus her Icon Award that she received last night ( FYI she’s only 25yrs), while beyonce is 32..why didn’t she win the Icon Award ? Ok. Beyonce did not make 85million this year, YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL! Beyonce & Jay Z made 95million together this year, that’s what the article said, READ READ READ. ” As of June 30, 2013, the tour has grossed $100,342,254 from the first 65 shows, according to Billboard magazine. Rihanna broke numerous records during her tour including becoming the youngest artist to ever headline a show at Paris’ Stade de France, at the age of 25, performing at Millennium Stadium and two times at the Twickenham Stadium on June 10, 2013 and June 15 & 16, 2013 and again became the youngest artist ever to sell out the stadiums. Rihanna also made history when she became the youngest ever singer to sell out the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg ” HER NUMBERS DON’T LIE :p #facts #facts #facts . I won’t even talk about beyonce needing a new album, cause IDGAF! She’s out-dated just like that weave that the fan swallowed. Rihanna sings about Love, Sex, Money ??? …have you been listening t Beyonce because clearly she also sings about those too, the only difference is that she shields her good girl image while doing it. Again, you need to read…Rihanna and Chris fought years ago but you still choose to bring that up ?, how childish..If you had read the report, Chris Brown bite her, and you only bite during a fight when you’re scared, now we ALLLLLL know that Rihanna slap his dumb ass first, we know, and FYI chris had bruises on his face too, but of course they weren’t as big as rihanna’s,. You are mad for no reason, she collected the award, beyonce didn’t get it..she has made HistoRIH so continue staying mad. And the beyonce season ended years ago, ain’t no passengers on that plane, she’s flying solo and she’s twisted in her own world cause nobody’s buying her shit. That bitch made an album and made a video for all the songs and none hit number 1 …that ain’t iconic gurlllll! C’mon now!

    King Fierce Reply:

    @RIHANNABISSH, LOL, you wanna talk about misreading and looking back at replies??? I find that hilarious since YOU DID say numbers don’t lie…check the lines 6-7 of your response “Beyonce’s sales are NO WHERE close to rihanna’s, number don’t lie boo.” Bitch you need to keep track of your standing, either numbers lie or they don’t, you can;t have it both ways sweetheart. You wanna call me dumb and retarded but your dumb-ass brought nominations into the mix, you do know that nominations are not wins right?! But I see where you were going there because nominations are recognition. I actually messed up Beyonce has 448 awards to Rihanna’s 250 and 701 nominations to Rihanna’s 553….so once again you have insufficient funds when it comes to that argument. I see Rihanna has broken records but she comes SECOND to Beyonce in the best live acts of 2013..check it (http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/5800662/beyonce-passes-100-million-in-ticket-sales), Beyonce’s tour is well past the $100 million mark and this is something she does with every single tour..consistently. Child you can’t win because Beyoncé is literally slaying your girl with no new music and no new hype. She is even more relevant than Rihanna, the only reason people are checking for Rihanna now is because of the Icon award which is why all the singles after “Diamonds” and “Stay” fell off, she literally can’t generate anymore publicity because she done already done it all and it tired..just like your arguments. As for the 2013 earnings, we a lllll know Beyonce made a huge chunk of the money I mean her Pepsi deal WAS $50 million dollars, meanwhile Rihanna’s tired ass couldn’t even make it into the top 10 with her measly $43 million and THIS IS AN ACTIVE YEAR FOR HER!!!! So my argument that Beyonce made more than Rihanna on her off-season still.fucking.stands. I’d really like to see how you explain that Rihanna is an icon and Beyonce is tired when we all know for sure that Beyonce made $7 million, and mod def more, than Rihanna when it was NavySeason..yes yes I would!!! Next point, umm..if Rihanna’s bruises were bigger than Chris Browns….THEN THAT MEANS SHE GOT HER ASS BEAT! Does your ignant ass know that you can get you ass beat even if you fight back???? And just cuz she started the fight doesn’t make her the badass you and her claim she is to be. Bad-asses finish the fight, because they know when they are starting something that they better be in it to win it. Rihanna may have made history but Beyoncé has BEEN making history for 10+ years and CONSISTENTLY…..check it (http://beyoncegalaxy.wordpress.com/records). You’re so mad you keep on arguing the same shit, we’ve already talked about how “Party” and “Love on Top” both went number one on the R&B charts and pssst, Beyoncé made a video for every song on B’Day NOT 4. You keep getting you shit wrong, how do you expect to have any leverage in this conversation???? If she’s all alone with nobody on that plane then who is buying all these concert tickets and selling out her shows my dear? You are a pathetic fan, get your shit together and DEFEND your captain right! Don’t come over here with half formed arguments and bullshit fluff, YOU.WILL.LOSE.EVERY.FUCKING.TIME. I got facts and numbers on my side bitch don’t come here with a super soaker.

What kind of artist goes on tour without having an album out to support it? Rihanna has 7 albums and has more #1 singles than any other R&B artist. She does every genre of music including R&B, Pop, Electro, and Hip Hop, Reggae, and Rock. “Go Rihanna!” and show Beyoncé what it’s like for someone who actually deserves and award to win it.

Selena Gomez got it with Come and get it. And it’s a fact that this Gimmick’s Twitter is filled with fake accounts!!! She does not have 30 mil followers! If you look at her webstagram that has “10 million” followers you’ll notice how she gets 2,000-4,000 comments TOPS! When Nicki Minaj’s webstagram with 3 mil, gets those amount of comments. Drake who also doesn’t have 10 mil like this RihFraud gets 10,000 comments on his pics regularly. Why is apple head only getting the same amount of comments as those with only 2-5 million followers?! The #s ain’t adding up! An investigation done by a site was done and confirmed her accounts are mostly dummy profiles. They say she has more like 12 million followers. It has also been revealed her YT vids are fake! That was exposed in an article in the Daily Mail! Look it up! Def scam indeed! I remember one guy from Def Scam who got fired admitted he put stories out there to get her career hyped up. Can’t remember what he said he did. Read it yrs ago. Wish I could find the article! Gimmickanna and Def Scam y’all should be getting the iCON award!!!

    She has more hits than Bey because she is POP music. Pop music is an abbreviation for popular! Geez people think!!! Bey is R&B. One of the hardest musical genres to sell! If Trey Songz went pop tomorrow he would be known as well as Rihanna! Bey needs to be given credit for making people take notice of R&B because of her electrifying performances in MV’s and stage! If Bey didn’t have great performances she would not be a global name, becuz the globe does NOT check for R&B! Start thinking ppl instead of just saying oh Rihanna is better because she has hits. If Bey went pop tomorrow, she’ll start getting #1′s fast too! Repeat that last sentence I just wrote. It’s the TRUTH!

    I don’t like her, but if someone deserves that award, it should be Beyonce. Or Pink. Rihanna is hella lazy

    She’s an icon but she’s far from innovative. If you want innovative try FKA Twigs.

    The AMA’s is one of the most prestigious award shows, their not gonna give an award to someone who doesn’t deserve it. Beyonce is loved in the United States, Rihanna gets more love internationally then Beyonce does that’s why Rihanna got the award and NOT Beyonce.

    I think Beyonce is a better performer but Rihanna has reached a global scale that Beyonce hasn’t gotten to yet. Overseas Rihanna is the Queen Bee. And the fact that Beyonce is the better performer doesn’t change that.

    So it looks like Beyonce might have to perform BowDown on her knees
