Rihanna Will Receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMas
Deservedly so since she work-work-worked for it.
Rihanna put in work, and it’s paid off: She’ll be this year’s recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at MTV’s VMAs. Previous winners include Kanye West, Beyonce, Madonna and the star whom the award is named after — Rih’s in good company.
Also up for four other nods, the honor celebrates Rihanna’s run for the past decade and her impact on everything from music to fashion. Of course, her videos in particular play a huge role — we’ve seen her in “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Work,” “Needed Me,” “Kiss It Better,” “Sledgehammer” and “This Is What You Came For” in 2016 alone.
Tune into the show on August 28 at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
