The Calvin Harris assisted track won Video of the Year, beating out MIA (Bad Girls), Katy Perry (Wide Awake), Gotye f/ Kimbra (Somebody I Used to Know) and finally herself, along with Drake (Take Care).
You would think taking top honors for an award only won by a handful of women would be the talk of the evening but you would be wrong.
You may even think the singer’s new pixie haircut or “Cockiness” performance with A$AP would be the talk of the evening, but again, you would be wrong.
Instead it a was a moment not shown on live TV but captured by MTV.com’s “All Access Live” cameras and broadcast all over the internet that became the talk of the evening.
After accepting her award for Video of the Year Rihanna exited the stage where she saw Chris Brown sitting and quickly gave him a hug and a kiss before patting him on the head and walking away.
Lord only knows why this would shock people considering the non-stop rumors of the two being in each other’s company numerous times since the lifting of the restraining order. Rihanna even admitted as much during her recent sit down interview with Oprah.
At any rate, all is forgiven on Rihanna’s part, and judging from Chris’ two wins tonight, the public has moved on as well.
