Rihanna big at iHeart
BARBADIAN INTERNATIONAL singer Rihanna was a big winner at the first-ever iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday night, taking home four trophies including artiste and song of the year for the song Stay.
“It’s not easy what we do. It’s very difficult at times. It’s a lot of pressure to be a lot of things, and I’ve never felt comfortable being anything other than myself – and I just thank my fans for being supportive,” said Rihanna.
Pharrell, the producer-rapper-singer, also earned the innovator award for his contributions to music.
Pitbull kicked off the iHeartRadio Music Awards with a colourful performance at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Usher also enticed the crowd when he danced slickly to the new Michael Jackson single, Love Never Felt This Good, and 20-year-old Ariana Grande performed her new jam Problem in a mini black dress and white knee-high boots that even had Rihanna blushing.
