Rihanna Will Be Receiving The 2016 VMA Michael Jackson Vanguard Award
The Video Vanguard Award, also known as the Lifetime Achievement Award, is given to musicians who have made a profound effect on the MTV culture, honoring an artist’s body of work. The award was renamed in 1991 as the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, and this year’s recipient is none other than music’s favorite “Bad Gyal” Rihanna.
Fresh off the release of her 8th studio album Anti, and currently on her world tour, Rihanna follows a short list of legends that have received the award before her.
Memorable award recipient performances range from artist like Justin Timberlake
And of Course, Beyonce
No telling yet on exactly on what Rihanna will do, or wear, when she accepts her award, but no doubt, it will be a night to remember!
