2013 AMAs: Rihanna Shines Bright Like A Diamond, Takes Home Icon Award


Rihanna’s 2013 has been a mixture of ups (sold out Diamonds world tour, “Pour It Up” music video and slew of No. 1 hits) and downs (777 tour, on-and-off again relationship with Chris Brown). But her performance at the 2013 American Music Awards was definitely on the upside.

Rihanna performed her hit “Diamonds” off Unapologetic at Sunday’s music awards show. Her time on stage was tame, with her opting for a long black gown and slicked back up-do. She was also there to take home the AMAs’ Icon Award, and also picked up the award for favorite female soul and R&B artist.

“This is for you guys,” Rihanna thanked her fans accepting the award from her mother Monica Braithwaite Fenty. Watch her perform “Diamonds” below.
