  • Rihanna’s ass was up for grabs at the MTV Video Music Awards. A$AP Rocky latched on for a verse during her performance of “Cockiness (I Love It)” and looked for a moment like he’d never let go. Call it one of the MTV VMA’s “gotcha moments.”

    The move, which also included a friendly bite on the neck, may or may not have been rehearsed (they usually are) but it opened eyes nonetheless in the audience (and presumably at home).

    Rihanna Sizzles at MTV VMAs Red Carpet

    The video music award was a virtual reunion of Rihanna lovers. Former beatdown boyfriend Chris Brown was there, although seated a safe distance away, despite no restraining order. And, rapper Drake was equidistant in audience.

    The Barbadian singer opened the show with the song. She belted it out the tune dressed in red with a full complement of dancers and a laser light show.

    She plunged into the audience at one point with abandon. She segued into “We Found Love” while wading through the crowd and touched every hand she could reach.

    “Doesn’t my girl Rihanna look sexy tonight?” Katy Perry bellowed after the performance. She not only looked good, she took home the top prize, “Video of the Year.”

    On the red carpet, Rihanna wore a body-hugging gown, braless of course, that left no doubt her nipples are pierced. The dress was conservatively cut in front, but plunged to he waist in back. Rihanna also showed off a new pixie cut.
