Rihanna, VMAs Performance: A$AP Rocky Gives Singer Unwelcomed Surprise Onstage


Rihanna performed “Cockiness (Love It)” at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Thursday night with a twist. Dressed in all-red everything, she welcomed Harlem, N.Y., rapper A$AP Rocky to the stage for the remix. The pop star also showed off her short bob, her backup dancers were stunning in gold and Rocky kept it casual.

While singing the tail end of his verse, the rhymer managed to grab some of Rihanna’s tail too. Rocky squeezed her backside and the Bajan beauty playfully pushed him away. Hopefully Chris Brown didn’t witness his fresh actions.


The 24-year-old entertainer then segued into her hit song “We Found Love,” after which Nicki Minaj tried to let the songstress know she had lipstick on her teeth by motioning with her hands. Good to know the Young Money MC has Rihanna’s back.
