Rihanna is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars preparing to perform at tonight's MTV Video Music Awards but the 'Umbrella' star was keeping it casual as she arrived at the Staples Centre last night (September 5, 2012) to get ready for the evening's highly-anticipated awards ceremony. Whilst many stars like to make a grand entrance when they know the world's media are waiting for them, Rhi-Rhi pulled up in a white care, dressed simply in jeans and a white Celine Paris t-shirt, topped off with a gold choker and a pair of blue and orange Cleveland Cavalier Nike Air Jordans.
Upon her arrival, a throng of fans and paparazzi emerged, all baying for a shot of the star. Keen to get inside and get to work, Rihanna simply gave them a wave and a smile before heading inside to prepare for her performance. Tonight's show will mark the first time that the Vma Awards have been held at the Staples Center and music fans can look forward to performances from British boy band One Direction, country music star Taylor Swift and rapper Nicki Minaj. 2 Chainz will also be making his Vma debut, as will Frank Ocean.
According to Mtv, Rihanna will be sitting close to former lover Drake as they are two of the artists with the highest number of nominations. We wonder what love rival Chris Brown will think of the seating arrangement? Here's hoping it doesn't spark any more violent outbursts from the 'Fortune' singer.
