The multi-talented Barbados bred Rihanna is adding another big achievement to her repertoire. The Pop and R&B act, fresh off her project ANTI, is receiving the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award,” the highest honor at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.
This award reflects off her “decade-long impact on music, pop-culture, fashion, film and philanthropy.” Rihanna showed her appreciation on her social media accounts today and on MTV as well. She will be joining iconic Vanguard recipients such as Madonna, Beasty Boys, Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Kanye West and Justin Timberlake.
She has given the world some pretty impressive visuals, such as the creepy “Disturbia,” the aggressive “B*tch Better have my Money,” and the toxic love ballad in “We Found Love” with Calvin Harris.
RiRi is also up for four other awards at the show. She has two nominations for “Work” and two for “This is What You Came Here For” with Harris. She will also perform live at the ceremony.
Rihanna is a two-time VMA “Video of the Year” winner and the youngest solo artist to have 14 No. 1 singles on Billboard Hot 100s.
The 2016 MTV Video Music Award are live from Madison Square Garden on Sunday, August 28 at 9PM.
