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!

That was too cute when chris sang along

# 5

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

# 6

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

# 7

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

# 8

Most boring performance of the night

# 9

***** has a thick neck!

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…..

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

That lipstick colour is wrong for her

She’s fug and so is the black dress

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

I KNOW SHE TRIES BUT SHE REALLY NEEDS TO INVEST AND UPGRADE HER HAIR AND CLOTHES. ASAP

Yikes. I thought it was Fantasia.

I’m not lovin’ the Darth Vader dress.

aww i loved it when chris sang along awwwwwww

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.

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

Cute dress but the hair is butt ugly!

She needs to take a bow…overall.

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

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.

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

JEDI TRANNY

Rihanna has style but this is ******* ridiculous!

It looks all wrong..i expected more glamour

Hot! Dione Warwick has snagged herself a young stud!

she’s cute but she looks silly

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

OMG! So cute when Chris sang along!!

She is very inspired by Madonna.

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.

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.

man in a dress

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 @ 06/25/2008 at 2:47 pm

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 @ 06/25/2008 at 3:00 pm

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!!

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!

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

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.

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

ashley aka lilo @ 06/25/2008 at 4:17 pm

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.

[☆I n F a m o u s☆] @ 06/25/2008 at 5:02 pm

hi haters.

parece que tiene una peluca……

she so beautiful i so love her voice
she is amazing

RIHANNAs hair looks ugly . i liked when she had her haircut the first time. And she looks so ugly with chris brown.Chris brown is to cute to be with somebody ugly.she used to be pretty ,but she had to get that low haircut.Imsorry rihanna but u are not my favorite singer no more.

chrisbrown looks so sexy. why is he with her.chris your not suppose to be with ugly people.

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.

At least she’s wearing something appropriate.But everyone hates her hair cut.

wICKED WENCH @ 06/25/2008 at 8:51 pm

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.

i hate the black dress other than that she is stunning!

Personally, I don’t get the appeal of either of them

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

okayy nvm jared you did hook my boy chris brown up with an entry ahaha my bad my badd… but an alicia keys one wouldnt hurt ehehehe =3

kathy-ann charles @ 06/26/2008 at 2:51 pm

Just love the girl. She has improved over the years. Tumbs up to you from Barbados and stay sweet girl !

Joycelyn Price @ 06/26/2008 at 4:19 pm

All you haters…no wonder Rhianna is where she is and you are there sitting with your less than attractive selves at home…Sour Grapes !.. Way to Go Rhianna….Keeping making us proud…we love ya

Very beautiful girl. A real beauty. Not that great of a singer though

Not a great singer but her songs are catchy. Not a great beauty either.
She looks like a teenage boy.

i hhate her bescause she is with chris brown

chocolate4 @ 06/27/2008 at 9:06 pm

haters she is very beautiful and we love her it is a blessing that a young black women is doing something that she loves to do- maybe just maybe if you guys put some stoppin on your mouths you still have time to be what you want to be WHEN YOU ALL GROW UP HATERS HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

she is hot but the dress is ugly make up is really cute i liked her old style

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!

alejandra @ 06/28/2008 at 3:35 pm

i think rhianna looks very pretty next to her boyfriend chris brown?

She looks like Michael Jackson before he had all the crazy surgeries.

100% Bajan @ 06/29/2008 at 9:47 am

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
dimplez

i am afraid

I think she’s fugly. She gives off the illusion of pretty, but when you break it down it’s all fug.

She did a wonderful performance here!

I saw Rihanna in person and she is sooooooo beautiful and what a body . . All you haters back off and leave her alone . She’s young beautiful and rich. You go girl haters can only make you stronger . Thats why your song Take a Bow was such a hit. Chris Brown is a lucky man.

antaniece @ 07/01/2008 at 6:19 pm

Rhianna need to back off my man cuz im 19 and shes not shes in her 20′s

I Love It.
She Got Sum Haters
As U See Below.
Jus Mad Cuz Dere Style Is Sum ****
&&Hers Is Up To Par!
On Her Worse Day’s She Looks Betta
Den U Folks.
On A Much Brighter Note.
She Look Beautiful
&&Different
I Love Mi Idol!

whyuwant2know @ 07/02/2008 at 8:09 am

Damn, why are yall hating on Rihanna? let the young lady do her thing…

wICKED WENCH @ 07/02/2008 at 2:22 pm

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

just a friend @ 07/08/2008 at 1:36 pm

how bout yo cheatin ass just take a damn bow

aint no body hatin on her we just sayin chris needs to find him another woman not one dat will cheat on his sexy azz

I love Rihanna no matter what. So what she cut her hair a little more, I’m still diggin it. Ya’ll haters always find something to hate on her.Although i wish she had moved a littlle at the BET awards.
