Rihanna's Mom & Jay Z present her with the Icon Award + Her Did Her Look Work for You? (Video + Pics)

Tonight Rihanna received a special honor at the 2013 AMAs. The singer who's stats are undeniable was honored with the Icon Award at just 25. The AMAs made it extra special for her. The award was presented by Bill Maher & two very special people- Jay Z & Rihanna's mom, Monica Fenty.

Rihanna hit the stage to much of our surprise with her hair wrapped, and delivered her hit record, Diamonds in one of the best performances she's given. It was obvious that the 25 yr old took full responsibility of the title being bestowed upon her as she sang her heart out on stage. The vocal was spot on. She sang the beautiful record with the type of command and presence you'd expect from someone being honored as an icon. At one point it was almost as if she was going to take us to church. With the kind of pressure on Rihanna to live up to her hype vocally, one can only imagine how much that pressure tripled with this honor. I'd like to think per usual, she met the challenge.

Many of Rihanna's peers, family members, friends, & fans a like showered the pop artist with love on twitter and Instagram to celebrate her accomplishments. Her darling mother went on and on about how humble Rihanna is and how she's proud of her daughter just after being sure to thank Jesus for the moment. I fell in love with the lady and her adorable accent. I'm sure the words of her mother meant more to Rihanna than any stat they put up on the big screen. It was a sweet moment.

Watch Rihanna's tribute and performance when you read on. Also see pics of her rocking her doobie and Jean Paul Gaultier. Known for her fashion and hair, Rihanna's look for the night was almost as talked about as her receiving the big honor. As Jay Z said in the tribute video, she has lots more to give her fans, and it seems so odd that so much has been accomplished in such little time. Check out Rihanna's special moment when you read on.

  1. I was skeptical about her getting this award because there are so many other artists I can think of who deserve it, but I realized last night that she really has worked hard to get to where she is. I like how they had her mom to present it. She is true West Indies! Most respect to Rhianna and congrats to her.
