Bajan singer Rihanna took away the biggest honor at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday night with the first ever AMA ICON Award.
A humbled Rihanna thanked her fans for supporting her throughout her troubled journey. "So many people had joined this journey... so many people I have to thank. Oh I love you guys so much! Thank you!" said Rihanna while hoisting her trophy in the air. Afterwards, rapper 2 Chainz paid Rihanna a compliment. "She does the best she can at being herself," he said. "I think that's what more people need to start doing; we need more leaders and less followers," 2 Chainz added.
According to Red Carpet Fashion blog, Rihanna skipped the red carpet portion of the awards show. She showed up onstage to accept her Favourite Soul/R&B Artist of the Year Award wearing a sexy two-piece from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2014 Collection.
