    Whole show was garbage…mtv dropped the ball. Had a sick location for a show and blew it with performances like this. Think the director was on speed…cut way to many cameras

    It was not a good performance at all.

    The intro was interesting when the stampede of zombie-like people came out, but it seemed like the backup music was doing more of the singing than Rihanna herself. And the choreography was sloppy and all over the place. Not very well planned.

    First of all, Rihanna looks trashy as always, even when she’s performing! What kind of a performance is that? It’s the VMA opening, and Rihanna just move around lip synching like a freaking zombie!

    The VMA opening is a showstopper and Rihanna sucks! She looks completely disfigured in that disgusting outfit. Her legs and thighs are huge compared to her upper body.

    Perez Hilton said she was disproportional and I think he’s right! She look weird! Worst performance ever from Rihanna!

    the performance was alright. the outift didn’t do her justice. she could have worn something a lot prettier and stuff.
    russel brand was just an obnoxious idiot the whole show. what a coward. go back to the uk russel!

    The whole VMA sucked besides Pink’s performance and britney winning.

    I wish they would have went all out like they usually do but I guess even MTV is feeling the pinch of the economy

    They should have had it in a big arena with a big stage as usual, it all looked sloppy and stupid.

    Rihanna’s thighs are huge but her upper body is pretty tiny so she’d have to starve to get rid of the huge legs, i guess…i thought her performace was great, actually… i’m a fan…she could do something about those huge legs, though.

    It wasn’t a bad or good performance it was just okay.

    Boring!!! Rihanna really needs to start getting original, everything about her performance was played out including that hideous rat tail.
