Rihanna Takes a Bow at the BET Awards

Rihanna Takes a Bow at the BET Awards

R&B style queen Rihanna sits next to her unofficial beau Chris Brown during the 2008 BET Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Rihanna arrived at the BET Awards in style, wearing an eye-catching Giambattista Valli dress.

Here are some more deets about Rihanna‘s shoulder tattoo. It says “IV. LXXXVI”, which is the Roman numeral for 4.86, the date of birth of her best friend. Apparently this best friend of hers is “closer than people from her own family.”

Watch her performance of “Take A Bow” from the BET Awards below!

  • Katkout

    Im not too crazy about the black dress! and her hair aint that perfect here! but other than that she’s a beautiful girl :)

  • oh snap!

    dang jared the only coverage you did on the BET awards is on rihanna and Jenifer Hudson, usually you post more on the other events

  • LOL

    Chris looks a high school kid and Rihanna is the
    30ish older chick who agreed to be his prom date. LOL

  • Happy

    Most boring performance of the night

  • t

    Bitch has a thick neck!

  • Miapocca

    Stupid reason for a tatoo….her family apparently don’t think much of her..she claims people from her island are jealous of her and are not interested in seeing other people succeed..quite an insult and wont help her build her fan base among the I guess she has to hold on to dear life to her best friends.but being as yougn as she is she will make a lot of mistakes and talk too rashly and as someone that the media will haunt it will come back ans bite her is the derriere…..

  • Juno

    i don’t like the dress (both) or the make-up

  • gwen

    That lipstick colour is wrong for her

  • rascal

    She’s fug and so is the black dress

  • susa

    It looks like she got a nose job and the short hair was done to distract.

  • RIRI


  • Mike

    Yikes. I thought it was Fantasia.

  • CC

    I’m not lovin’ the Darth Vader dress.

  • http://fds hgfdh

    aww i loved it when chris sang along awwwwwww

  • Alena Santos-mendez brown

    Love the song. But so boring most boring unoriginal performance of the night. she should have done disturbia something to dance to. At least she could have dance or moved. she just stood their like robot. she should have change the notes up a little to prove to people she can hit high notes. riri please do something new your sound is getting old now. but your man chris was singing along to your song. at least someone did.

  • tabby

    The dress is awful enough on its own without adding the bright freaking purple lips on top of it.

  • maze

    Cute dress but the hair is butt ugly!

  • Regina

    She needs to take a bow…overall.

  • Ashley

    I don’t like her new style. I remember when she used to be pretty.

  • cece

    She’s very attractive however, her voice is horrific. Maybe she should try doing more modeling or something. I honestly couldn’t finish watching the video. This a prime example of how pretty popular people can do just about anything they want.

  • von

    i don’t like it.
    the dark makeup clashes with her dress.
    and her hair looks ugly
    i like her old bob instead. :)



  • Erika

    Rihanna has style but this is fucking ridiculous!

  • paige

    It looks all wrong..i expected more glamour

  • Ray

    Hot! Dione Warwick has snagged herself a young stud!

  • krunk

    she’s cute but she looks silly

  • paulbrick

    OMG! She sucks man!!
    She’s not talented at all

  • Porsche

    OMG! So cute when Chris sang along!!

  • 19

    She is very inspired by Madonna.

  • Ashley

    I think if she like chris brown she likes him but even if she does she needs to just admit it instead of hide it and she needs to let the truth be the truth because if they didnt have anything going on why are they always together I mean every time I open up a magazine to see chris brown she’s always in it so what I really want to know is the truth.
    But I hope she doesnt like him because I love chris brown and rihanna is a beautiful girl in all but i would rather for him to be SINGLE.

  • CBs_wifey

    I don’t really care what anyone down there says because Rihanna looks beautiful and I think all yall are just a lil bit jealous of her. Or a lot more….but anyways…her performance was short but it was still great. But Chris Browns was a lot better.

  • CBs_wifey

  • lalalove

    I totally agree with #6. They weren’t the only people that the f*cking award!
    Ugh, she so annoying.
    I still don’t understand the hype surrounding this trick!

  • Alena Santos-mendez brown

    I know they weren’t the only ones at the award Jared why do you only post them only. When its other awards you post everyone. I want to say why he not really posting all who went but i don’t want to get in trouble.

  • miss jyukii

    okaye so chris brown wus singin the heck out of dat song.. but im not gon start hatin.. do ya thang rihanna. but i hate the fact that they lied about being together.. i mean chris is always saying he luvs his fans. well it sure doesnt luk like it, if u loved us you would’nt lie to us.. but i guess i cant get 2 mad because he was gonna get a girlfrend someday.. i still luv you though and big ups to rihanna!!

  • Caroline

    She looks amazing in the yellow dress with the violet lipstick, stunning, not so keen on the performance outfit, but WAY too cute when Chris Brown sang along, wish she would stop denying they are dating!

  • jazzy j

    there sure are a lot of haters …. rihanna’s outfit and hair were on point … and i usually thinks she looks a mess i didnt like the yellow one but the black one was hott! and her peformance was fit for the song …. why would she dance to a song you dont dance to…. duh .. use your brains … she did good

  • Iris

    Neither dress is great and she looks a touch masculine even in the girly, girly dress. and i’m not loving her whole look…the make-up and hair don’t go so well.

  • fabulyss

    Ewww…she’s got like four layers of foundation on that face.
    Where are the pics of Alicia Keys?

  • ashley aka lilo

    i love this girl.. i love eveythring about her from her hair to her face , attitude n her style is straight fiyah. the more people hate on her the more i love her. her voice is beautiful n she sings like she means it. chris brown looked so good sitting next to her n i loved how he sung along to her lyrics.. n then he sung into the camera like” yea what thats my girl n i love this song” lol i was like tell em boo.. but i really do love these two together n she is so my idol.
