Last night, Rihanna brought her mama, best friend Melissa, doobie and bobby pins to the American Music Awards. The singer was very fortunate to have received the first ever Icon Award. Upon receiving the award mama Fenty had a few encouraging words for her daughter:
I know the journey and your career has not always been an easy one, but tonight I applaud and admire you for being so strong and so positive and so humble and so focused.
During the acceptance speech, Rihanna thanked L.A. Reid, her family, her glam team, and her fans.
Right now, I can’t believe that at 25 years old, I’m holding an Icon Award. That is weird to even say out loud.
Watch Rihanna’s performance and acceptance speech below.
Congrats Rih Rih you deserve it!
Melissa accompanied her bestie at the AMA’s last night.
