Singer Rihanna is the latest artist to be added to the growing lineup of talent set to perform at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. The diva’s latest two singles, Take A Bow and Disturbia, are both riding high in the top ten, with Disturbia topping the charts at #1 and Take A Bow sitting pretty at #8. Rihanna is set to perform Disturbia live for the first time at the VMA show on September 7th and flew back into the country just yesterday to start hehearsals. The singer was spotted doing her usual shopping with her entourage in West Hollywood. And proving just how powerful the internet and bloggers are in general, an obviously fake story that has been floating around all week about the singer being broke is now making national and international news. To my surprise MTV UK and many other reputable sites, including those in the singer’s own country, are reporting the story as true and linking back to gossip blogs as their source.
Rihanna hasn’t yet responded to the story, but with it growing so feverishly, we should probably expect an official response from either her or her record label any day now.
In the meantime… enjoy the new pics. I promise when you click them the singer will have a head (lol).
