VANGUARD AWARD

Drake surprised everyone by taking the stage to present Rihanna the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award.

“The first time I met Robyn Fenty was in 2005. She was shooting a music video at a restaurant called Avocado in Toronto. The song was ‘Pon de Replay’ and the director was Little X. I was introduced to her… It’s hard to believe that 11 years later we’d come together to create the visual for a song called ‘Work.’ Today the world knows X as Director X… 11 years later, they still know Rihanna as the one and only Rihanna. She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life i’ve looked up to her even though she’s younger than me.”

RiRi then thanked and we couldn’t be prouder!

“MTV, this is such an amazing night, it’s such an amazing moment in my career. When I think about the Vanguard Award and receiving this tonight, all I could think of was my country. They’re gonna be so proud, this is the first Vanguard to land anywhere close to my country. And so, you know my success, it started as my dream. But now my success is not my own.  It’s my family’s, it’s my fan’s, it’s my country’s, it’s the Caribbean as a whole, it’s women, it’s black women, so many people feel like their little piece is such a major part of this puzzle, and I have to thank you guys for supporting me over and over. Thank you to every director whose taken a chance on me, and a chance with my crazy ideas, there’s just so much growth that has happened over the last eleven years, and I can’t believe I’m receiving a Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at 28 years old. It’s crazy. And I have so many people to thank, I mean, from the very beginning. Evan and Carl, from SRP, you guys believed in me, you brought me straight to Jay-Z’s office, where I met Jay, Tata, L.A. Reid, Jay Brown, my whole publicity team, my grandpeeps, so many people, man, they write with me from day to day. And my best friends, they never left me. They actually followed my a** all the way to America, gettin’ on my d*amn nerves.  They here right now, just witnessing this. This is a big moment. Thank you to Drake, for that amazing speech. Thank you to MTV, I had so much fun! Good night!”

Congratulations, Rihanna!!!
