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!

    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 carribeans..so 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…..

    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.

    cece Says:

    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 Says:

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

    Ashley Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

    Why all the haters on here? Everytime there is a Rihanna post the jealous Chris Brown lovers jumps on to hate. Rihanna is GORGEOUS! HANDS DOWN. She is far from ugly. If she is ugly I’d love to see what some of yall look like.

    Damn, Ri, first my hair, then my hair color, then my leather fetish and now my Elegant Gothic Aristocrat Victorian pannier. You’re like my evil twin – but younger.

    In short, what I’m saying is you’ve got fantastic style – but don’t expect the norms to appreciate it.

    I like the yellow dress but not with that makeup and those shoes. Aside from that, Rihanna’s stylist has apparently been on vacation because everything else has been a pure, hot mess.

    rydee Says:

    C’mon jared! why did you only givee coverage on rihanna??? blehh her “perfomance” was the most boring of the night. What about Alicia Keys who performed with great girl groups? SWV, Envogue, TLC anybody??? She did great and looked great when she ended up accepting her role as best r&b female!heyyy!!!! or you could have atleast done something on chris and his fione self when he did a hell of a perfomance with ciara!!! wheewwww that ish was HOTT!!!! and he almost won best r&b male. So go on and report about some other black celebs other than rihanna….i promise they dont bite :3

    She is a young girl who is looking way too old for her age. Not many 20 year old women would like to look like a 45 year old mother out with their teenage son. Hate to think that 40 is the new 20!

    we down here love her its just maybe the older generation may have problems wit her when she first started caz they go by certain morals but her family and country love her nun the less @ Miapocca…but its Melissa’s dob she has and they r best friends for years and always together so i think its really sweet and ur best friend usually feels more like family at some point…i enjoyed her performance she has become better live and it was way better than keyshia cole’s performance which was the disappointment so talk about that and i think she looked great at the awards
    love u rihanna

    wICKED WENCH Says:

    If someone truly hates a celebrity they don’t know then they need therapy – their perspective of reality / priorities / etc needs clinical readjustment. There are so many worthier people to hate, like Iraqi Terrorists, the Taliban, corrupt politicians – hating a celebrity for their appearance is at the very least shallow and at the most a sign of a mental disorder. (But it’s usually a sign of straight-up jealousy).

    I don’t like a few celebrities myself, but I’m not returning a purse just because one of them also has it nor do I ‘hate them so much” as some have said. I just strongly dislike stupid people – they irritate me, celebrity or no.l
