    too me she rocked that performance

  • ….

    she looks hot thought LUVVV the OUTFIT!

  • cutie

    Ugly look for such a cute girl

  • enoughalready

    If you listen she was whispering over a track, she sucked the whole night….

    Rocking back and fourth and side to side like she was doing something.

    Rihanna is an embarrasment to the whole music industry…

    Looking like Arnold Swartnegger (what ever his name is ) in theTerminator.

  • djole

    She is the hottest!!!!! Rihanna rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dream

    This child is just a disaster

  • good one

    lolololololololol@4!

    Good one!

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    fcuking sexy. rihanna owns her competition.

  • pene

    This is not a good style for her. Rihanna should stick to emphasizing her legs and bust, two of her best features.

    This outfit emphasizes her freakishly long torso and makes her look like a man.

  • ozzie

    Michael Jackson 2.0 minus the hair

  • lexy

    ewww…that’s soooo tacky

  • RIHRIH

    yummy yum yum.

  • vIvien

    Is it just me, or does she seem really full of herself?

  • Nic Cage

    Rihanna is a national treasure. She is the living embodiment of the Bald Eagle!

  • brandy

    she looks damn ridiculous

  • ?

    Wasn’t this a duet?

  • thebaddestbitchnyc

    i really like rihanna but her first performance was horrible and this one with t.i.( i love this song) was just as bad. she didnt even try. she was just standing there trying to be cute. she has the look but she didnt rock the performance didnt put any energy into at all.

  • loll

  • heart

  • XyZ

    Rihanna, Rogaine is your friend.

  • hmmm

  • JMO

    RiRi got some bad advice from her stylist

  • legs

    ugly!

  • dot

    pin.head.
    too. skinny.

  • star7

    I guess anyone can call themselves a “singer” these days. I was bored to death watching her performances. I liked the words to the song with T.I., But not with Rihanna singing them. All she did was sway back and forth and she didn’t put any effort whatsoever in the performance.

  • http://www.rihannasucks.blogspot.com rihanna sucks

    terrible!!! the track was doing most of the singing! ugh!

  • yukk

    she’s always touching her crotch when she performs. gross

  • jughed

    i say YAY. i like the whole biker look on her. she looks like she’s the new lead singer for Judas Priest! :)

  • Mel

    LOL! Y’all didn’t get the point of why she was dress that way. Go listen to the song and lyrics and understand it. She’s suppose to be a tough chick, and ride or die chick. LOL! I love T.I and this song “It’s Your Life” is my fav’. Some of you need help, and stop hating.

  • princess

    wont yall stop fuckin hatin of the girl dammm
    yall jus fukin jealous

  • nysro

    Don’t EVER expect true performances from the likes of MTV….
    (or Rhianna for that matter… she kinda sucks)

  • anon

    i’m not a big fan of rihanna but i love that song. it’s so badass, i’ve been listening to it for weeks now. it’s actually called “LIVE YOUR LIFE”. :o)

  • Good victoria

    In that outfit, she looks like a female ” terminator”……Rihanna could have done better with her clothes………she needs more feminine things on her, with that hair cut….

  • black

    She cant sing live she sounds horrible.

  • OH SNAP

    RIHANNA WAS SOO HOT AT THE VMAS I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT HER

    GO RIHANNA

    BEYONCE AND BRITNEY SUCKS

  • Zanessa-love4life

    Love Her Music ♥

  • http://www Oh well

    She couldn’t dance because she wasn’t wearing a bra underneath that leather vest. I guess she loved that freakin’ vest more than she loves performing. It’s all about the image, y’all!
    Noone mentioned that she sampled “Dragostea din Tei”, a Romanian group’s (O-zone) song.

  • naana *braasiil*

    dooo anyboody knoow when it’s gonna be the reprise here in braaasil?

  • opine

    VMAs were a complete dud. Britney Spears looked well though.

  • Kelly

  • mia
