Rihanna At The 2008 NRJ Awards


For those of you who don’t know, and I didn’t myself until about 15 minutes ago, The NRJ Awards are like the French version of The American Music Awards- with a few variations. The award show was created back in 2000 and takes place every January in Cannes, France. On average, most of the awards are given to non French artists and this year Rihanna will more than likely be one of them. Her single Umbrella was a hit in France and spent several weeks at the top of the charts there.

I can’t seem to find out whether or not she will be performing but if she does I will post her performance pics and video here when they become available.

And one other pic of Rihanna’s dress from the back can be seen on page 2.

    RIHANNA HAS A NEW CUT AND I AM LOVIN IT. THIS GIRL EXUDES ELEGANCE ON THE RED CARPET AND I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WAT SHE WILL WEAR AT THE GRAMMY. she should have kept this dress fuh the grammy cause it is FYAH. again, SHE LOOKS FIERCE.

    no wonder MARC JACOBS loves to see this girl dress and made a HANDBAG in her HONOUR.

  3. That’s exactly what I was thinking, she should have kept this dress for the grammy’s :hifive:

  4. Like knit fabric. And JERSEY knit fabric. LOL. It reminds me of my old gym sweats in high school. The grey color and the fabric… She looks awesome though :brownsista:

  5. SHE looKS Gorgeous…. i dont think she cut her hair again i think its pinned up in the back…it looks like that from the last pic, the back shot

  6. Dang, she looks good. Stephanie, i think it’s the NRJ Awards, not NJR. Anyways, back to Rhirhi, i an in love with her look!!

  7. this dress looks perfect for the grammy. :hmph:

    the dress looks so good on her, i hope she blaze up the red carpet at the grammy. 😑 why she wore that? i am mad that she didnt keep it fuh the grammy.

    either way, she is hot. and the back of the hair is not pin up, it is cut for real.

  8. The girl is doing her thang she looks “FANTASTIC” i love the dress and the new cut. You can truly say she has her own look going for her

  9. Rihanna does the damn thing, ALWAYS! I’m luvin’ the hair cut- it makes me wanna go cut all mine off- again *thinking*.

    You’re right, I think it is pinned up in the back. Looks like I see bobbi pins. Either way she looks beautiful. I think she should really go for the real cut BUT then again- why, when she can just do what she did, huh??!

  11. RIRI LOOKS STUNNING AND SHE LOOKS OLDER AND MATURE IN THESE PHOTO’S………………….NICE 😎

  12. RI-RI LOOKS FLAWLESS IN THESE PHOTO’S SHE LOOKS OLDER AND MATURE IN THESE PHOTO’S 😎

  13. She looks great. The dress is flattering in an odd way, and I love her hair.

  14. her dress is ok, i think it is to mature for her, it is obvious that her stylist are trying to copy
    beyonce style, the hair cut is ok the more hair covering her huge forehead the better. I HOPE
    she enjoys her 15 minutes, because her albums only contain 1 or 2 hits and her vocals are
    horrible it sounds like a recipe for disaster, looks can only get you so far remember a little ole
    singer name brittney spears. in the next 10 years who music will prevail beyonce,mary, and jill
    scott or ri ri, ciara, and ashanti. beyonce has the vocals,style, talent and class and well rihanna
    would make a perfect background singer for beyonce, jill scott, alicia keys, and mary j blige.

  15. wow..lotta haterade drinking goin on up there.

    Rhianna is a beautiful girl; she may not have the best voice but she is talented. I’m lovin that new cut. She’s always giving us a new look to love (not like the drab same ole same ole we get from another popular female singer). Say what you want about her but she’s is the “it” girl so far this year and I wish her continued success.

  16. people are so upset cause rih is yanking the fake barbie blonde out of her spot pitifull!!
    rihanna you are stunning 9 person out of 10 love you dont give a damn homegirl

  17. I think she looks beautiful but what the hell is going on in her kitchen area?

  18. no, not haterade, i just speak the truth if you look back a year ago kelis was the first to rock that haircut not ri-ri and the dresses all from beys old wardrobe remember ri-ri was wearing belly tops and cross color jeans. everyone is entitled to change their style, but don’t make it seem like you were the one to come up with the styles, just admit that you stole kelis haircut and beys hand me downs, because you admired their style. anyway so many people have had that haircut back in the day mary, salt & peppa, me, halle,victoria beckham , bey in dreamgirls,the list goes on and on. hey do some research before you claim some one hates ri-ri
    shes down to 14 minutes the clock is ticking

  19. What woman owns the patent on hairstyles and fashion? I mean other than designers? Lol. Rih’s 15 minutes have been going for quite some time. This is her 3rd album, no? I think she’ll continue to be around for some time. Fans, the press, designers and other celebs love her. She will continue to shine. :brownsista:

  20. RIHANNA MAKES ME WANT TO STAY IN SHAPE …THE GIRL HAS A FIERCE BODY…OH AND I’M LOVING THE HAIR CUT..SHE IS SO INNOVATIVE…

  21. LOve the dress just not on her. Her body is too Long and Linky for this dress. It make her look like she has no curves at all. But her make up and face is flawless.

  22. I LOVE THE WAY THIS YOUNG LADY DRESS. I LOVE THE DRESS IT DIFFERENT IT NOT GOLD OR BLACK OR RED. SHE KNOW HOW TO PULL IT OFF AND VERY WELL. GO RI-RI

  23. I happen to think Rihanna CAN sing but here’s the thing you’re missing: she is NOT R&B. With her you’re not going to get some huge soulful voice, even if she could do it… She is as R&B as Madonna is Hip Hop. The only reason she’s labeled R&B is because the mainstream has a hard time seeing an African American performer as anything but… If you saw the American Music Awards, you probably got that she was a bit put off by winning the award for best female R&B act. She didn’t want it, just as Justin Timberlake didn’t want the award for best pop album for his first solo record. It’s as if people are inventing reasons to hate her…she’s done everything to differentiate herself from other performers, yet people STILL insist that she’s copying them. She is not. There is no R&B performer with the same style and sound… She is for the more pop oriented fan, maybe even pop rock…she is NOT for the stubborn R&B fan. You don’t like her, you think she’s a failure because you’ve got her in the wrong game. Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Nelly Furtado, Britney Spears…that’s her arena..

  24. I agree with u S.Paradise different from any other artist. Her style is different from everyone else. Yes the bob been out b4 she was born she decided after S.O.S she need a change in everything and i think she did it well. Go ri-ri.

  25. [quote comment=”19932″]:brownsista: Good thing she looked good because her performance was :thumbsdown:
    Here’s the performance from last night.

    :stop: That was dead and absolutely horrible! πŸ˜†

  26. As far as i concern Rihianna has as much talent as the rest of ”SO-CALLED R&B SINGERS” It’s all about packaging. You can’t be madd she just package well, besides she not another “BEYONCE” clone like others,
    she has her own look,style, music may be on the line of a Madonna and other POPdivas as some one pointed out.

  27. rihanna is very beautiful. She can pull off the ‘Hollywood look” effortlessly; that if nothing else will give her the a worldwide appeal needed in todays industry. I do agree that she is not R&B which is understandable because she is not from America and R&B is American music. I dont expect her to translate the soul and pain or the style that derives from genuine R&B. I personally bought her first album but none of the others. Although I am no longer a fan Musically, I do wish her well and much success for she is trying to be a little more original from other Pop stars however, her first album was original. Unforturnately, more often then not originality does not translate into dollars.

  28. hi i’m teny armanian i want to say rihanna thatt she was own singer with voice & all the things i really love herr i pray god that one day i can see her i LOVEYOU RIHANNA I all the times Wish to see UUUU NO one can BE like U NO one

  29. one word “FLY” her hair always looks nice and I luv her style………she got the look game on smash 4real her music isn’t all that great, but she work it………….u don’t have to have a lace front hanging down you back to be sexy short hair is just as good………..I mean everybody has their own opinion, but I luv her she is very different maybe bcuz I like the punk rock look………… I personally think all female celebrities change up their style once they get in to the game it’s only right u mature and learn more then u switch things up. Even I changed my style as I got older………….they all seem to have long hair and belly shirts when they first start………. think about it…….. they all changed

  30. ri ri is the shit always changing het style and looking hot. go ahead girl do your thing fakeyonce fans are just mad that you are getting all the spotlight get over it people ri will make her money and thats all that matters she may not be the best singer but so what so is got it going on.

  31. I’m loving the new cut !! Hey give her some credit whatever you think about
    her you must admit she has her own style.

  32. If rihanna is not R&B i’m sure you know that neither is beyonce,kelly rowland, ciara or even my girl aaliyah [r.i.p]?

    Music today is just a symphoNIE of confusion with couple of people trying to ease our pain [Mjb ,M.keys ,Keyshia cole ] THEY CAN TRANSMIT THE REAL EMOTION R&B IS SUPPOSED TO BRING the rest is just a bunch of pop half naked wanna be divas not girls but not yet women confuse and inarticulate stanks, rihanna, and ciara do stand up to me not only THEY CAN SPELL ,they are not robots but they have their very own style

    people can always say that rihanna or ciara can’t sing but singing is a skill that you need to build at least they knows they can’ t sing and chooses song that compliment their voice either way their fan base is huge and they builted all by their young self so if you can acclaim an old whore whom family always stand up for her like a 5 y.old in kindergarden you sure can saluate rihanna for being out there by her own! :loser: either way they are still beautiful and 5 y.old girls will buy the albums and horny man will still drool over their butts simple πŸ˜†

    ps: les nrj awards don’t give a lot of award to french artist because they suck big time πŸ˜†

  33. tpl: ^^
    beyonce can sing but she cannot sang!!!!!! you hear that? put her in front of j.lo or ciara or even rihanna and she is the ultimate singer

    everyone saw her in dream girls her voice is weak supposly she had to held back i saw live of listen on oprah and even after the yell the tears and the hair flauting it was still very weak so stop acting like she changed music beside all the noise you made up there just prove one thing: Rihanna is indeed beyonce’s biggest competition[and she had her damn self to blame there is always room for improvement and when you stay humble people will be honnest with you so instead of killing people’ s ear she need to take singing lesson!] because Mjb keyshia and A.keys are better than her already ,the only person under her is kelly and that is because she wants to! so get some rest aight?
