Rihanna Kicks Off The 2012 Video Music Awards! Watch As Her Cockiness Found Love HERE!

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteAwardzCalvin HarrisVMAs

No one can WERK it like she can!

For the opening act of the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, Rihanna and her freshly-cropped haircut took to the stage to croon her new single from Talk That Talk, Cockiness (Love It)!

But despite an appearance from A$AP Rocky and some pretty fierce, albeit lewd dance moves, the performance didn't really take off until she segued into her smash hit We Found Love with DJ Calvin Harris…and threw herself into the audience!

Ch-ch-check it all out go down (above)!

Hellz YES!

We don't envy the performers who have to come on after her!

This going to be one TOUGH act to follow!

Can't wait to see who tries, though!

    This award show has not mattered since the mid 90s. So sad what counts as talent these days.

    The lights and dancers are there to distract the viewer from realising how untalented and dull she is, right?

    I liked Rihanna's performance. It was entertaining compared to the others.
