Last night, Rihanna was presented with the first ever AMA Icon Award at last night’s American Music Awards. The award, which was presented by Bill Maher, celebrates all of Rihanna’s achievements thus far. Rihanna celebrated by performing her last #1 hit single, “Diamonds”. After her amazing performance, a message from Jay Z was played on the screens congratulating Rihanna and reminding her of all struggles they’ve faced over the years. Just when you think Rihanna’s iconic award moment couldn’t get anymore personal, Rihanna’s mother walks out with the actual award trophy. Ma Ma Riri then delivered a heart-warming speech before allowing Rihanna to give her acceptance speech, reminiscing on growing up in Barbados and meeting Hov! I honestly couldn’t think of any other artist that is as deserving as Rihanna is. The “What Now” singer is only 25 yet is already global superstar holding many records! Congratulations Riri!
