Rihanna graced the stage Sunday night at the 2013 AMAs where she performed “Diamonds” and was awarded the Icon Award.

The Icon Award is new to this years American Music Awards and Rihanna as its first recipient was highly debated by the public. Many have stated that she is too young for the award and that it should have been given to someone who has been in the music industry longer than the 25-year-old. Rihanna might have brought some of the naysayers over to her side with the performance of her hit “Diamonds” that she gave right before receiving the award. The performance was minimalist with no gimmicks and Rihanna was backed by full orchestra that awed the crowd at the Nokia Center where the awards were being held.

Did you like her performance? Do you think she deserves the Icon Award? Let us know in the comment section below.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
