stunning RIRI !

She doesn’t sound half bad?
Is she really singing live or lip synching?

eminem is the king as usual & rihanna is always hot as ever !!

love Eminem! && Rihanna looked gorgeous!

The horrible hair spoils it though.

aside from Florence + the Machine, this hands down was the best performance.

AW. They look so cute together. Amazing performance.

Sorry, she looks like a drag queen.

ugly chick.

Why does this girl dress like a circus clown?

Rihanna looks absolutely ridiculous. She was so gorgeous when she first came on to the music scene.

Good performance, though.

It’s Carrot Top meets Madonna.

Rihanna sounds alright but I’m so used to her sucky voice that I tune her out most of the time.

eminen great but rihanna ….she sucks live !!! horrible dress and hair
rhianna you used to be so pretty what happened to you?


Eminem is epic as usual!

rihanna is cute but the girl cannot sing.

RiRi got fug.

I’d probably find her attractive if she didn’t always look like she just finished sucking a lemon.

I would like her outfit if it was a dress with a belt instead of a skirt with a crop top. They sound really goood together.

no wonder the American Music Industry is going broke. no wonder country music is so popular.

the MTV awards was just barely watchable!

when its bad, its awful…yeah her singing!

I agree with Harley’s coment. The performance was great but Rihanna’s red hair do has to go. It looked like someone literally put a mop on her head and spray painted it red.

Eminem rocks the mic, still rocks the mic right!!

they couldnt throw some auto tune into that mess for her? damn she sounded bad. Em rocked it out though

Are you people tone death?she sounded beyond horrible and she looks like a dumb as* with that red hair,eminem on the other hand cool performance.

Rihanna (whilst Drake’s singing Fancy)
“Oh you fancy huh?”

Katy Perry *whips hair back & forth*

Eminem is just a poet, he puts raw heart into his songs, especially now since he’s sober, I really liked this performance. Their hug was cute.

beautiful Rihanna

Em sounded great, I loved the performance. Rihanna did not sound good and seemed kinda bored.

@Tori, you got this one right. She looks like she just crawl out of a trash dumpster. Her fans need to call her on some of this stupid sh*t she does instead of bigging her up like it’s all good. That hair looks like a scarecrow in the cornfield. Whoever style her tonight should be fired, point blank no explanation.

Eminem was so sexy and epic as always!!

Pleasant to look at, horrible to listen to. Rihanna is an awful live performer.

Gaga’s 5 seconds of acapella >>>>>>>> Rihanna’s lame attempts at singing.

‘Nuff said.

Eminem was phenomenal. Rihanna looks like a fcking douchebag. Absolutelyyyyyyyy ridiculous, she’s embarrassing to watch. And listen to. I’ve heard her in concert too, and girl needs some vocal lessons. I liked the ending though, that was an intense moment between the two of them. Not gonna lie, I thought they were gonna kiss or something lol.

they’re look cute..i love this song it’s amazing duet

Eminem was great, but the red-haired s.k.a.n.k. ruined it for me. She can’t sing. Another product of auto-tune.

love u rihanna so beautiful with Eminem……….

I take it that all the posters are under 20 and they think they’ve seen it all..i went thru my teens in the MTV era and witnessed the greatest creative arts and performances at Award shows during the 1990`s.

I was a fan of Eminem, but sorry I think he has lost his edge as the peers of his times are being replaced at the VMA with newcomers and new crew in the audience..Maybe Rihanna is carrying his comeback by association for she followed by a younger fanbase who are the primary consumers of MTV.

That performance with Rihanna was awkward and not in a million yrs would i see this coming , Em collaborating with a female artists after he built his career on a macho ego and target most of his trashtalking & rappin on female artists like Spears, Mariah, Aguilera, J.Simpson.

He looks like he was a little afraid to touch Rihanna (I swear he almost ran away from her !!)..Em should give his outdated machismo/sexist image a rest..nothing wrong with hugging a girl in public.!

Meu ninguem entende…
artista é aquele q inova….Q cria polemicas,q naum c deixa passar despercebidooo…
rihanna é assim….TEm q chamar a atenção mesmo….
lady gaga tbm..
Falem mal ou falem bem ,o importante é q falem…..

Eminem is always epic, but wtf is that on her head?! I kept being distracted!

@harley: Exactly, she was hot when she first started out with the whole Carribean Island girl long haired look, then she tried to be edgy and failed miserably imo.

Didn’t see it . Love Eminem though.. Would have watched it if chris brown was on the show.Peopleneed to forget what happen and move on. Rihanna is nothing to the singing world people like me wants to forget her. She’s nothing but trouble to anyone that comes near her. She can’t make a hit record on her own.She doesn’t look good at all anymore. And she be on this site all the time. what for i ask? She waste are anyone’s time to comment on her. Wish Chris brown was on theMAs instead are her.

WTF did you just say or try to say learn english b—– if you dont like Rihannawhy are you here? they were the hit of the show i can do without her hair but the girl ha an amazing voice and shes got a gorgeous face and no hits haha remember UMBRELLA? enough said you must like to get beat up i guess chris brown is dead and gone he will never make it back so kiss his a-s-s- goodbye

Rihanna did great. She has a beautiful voice and she is one of the most beautiful girls in the music industry. They were truly the hit of the show. Excelent performance. And do you know what the term HIGH FASHION represents? Look at Rihanna!

anq3la l0la @ 09/13/2010 at 7:49 pm

Rihanna sucks. She looks a freakin mess. Em lost points for me for even doing a song with this loser. But the song is nice tho

People keep talking about Rihanna’s vocal ability…but I think she has the right “pop” voice for the type of songs she sings. I can’t think of anyone else who would have been perfect for this Eminem song. She may not belt out songs like Beyonce or Fantasia but she sounds ok to me.

she cudnt write a hit song to save her life she only uses people to write songs for her,remember drake?.and yes her voice isnt great and everyone nos that.and high fashion u say, most of the clothes that she wears, normal people wudnt be seen wearin in public u fool she only wants attention..and she lookd like a tranny with the long red hair. i was really looking forward to when she said she cudnt make it to awards and then she decided to show up the *****. peple dont really like her because of her music they like her because of her personal life.her concert was a flop, she couldnt sell out a tour! people who are obsessed with celebrites nee to get a life, rihanna doesnt give a **** about her fans neither does any other celebrite.i never heard of rihanna doing a free concert for her fans?

She doesn’t sound half bad?
Is she really singing live or lip synching?her hair is a mess!

Rihanna sounds alright but I’m so used to her sucky voice that I tune her out most of the time.

does anyone know the brand of em’s jacket/hoodie? THX

good performance though (but RI is way not the best singer ;) )

I could give a ratz **** what they Tweeted…. doesn’t make it newsworthy. Just makes the owners and stockholders rich.
