MTV is finally celebrating all of her work!
The R&B star will be presented with the honor at the award show on August 28 — where she's also up for multiple awards, including Best Female Video for Work and Best Male Video for her appearance in Calvin Harris' This Is What You Came For.
The coveted award, which was created in 1984 and named after the King of Pop in 1991, celebrates an artist's accomplishments in music, fashion, film, and philanthropy — all arts RiRi has certainly mastered.
In recent years, the Video Vanguard Award was handed to Justin Timberlake (2013), Beyoncé (2014), and Kanye West (2015) — who, last year, announced his 2020 candidacy for president in his long-winded acceptance

Conrad Murray is milking his connection to Michael Jackson for all its worth!
As we previously reported, the doctor who was convicted of manslaughter in connection with Michael's death, is writing an explosive tell-all book called This Is It. The scandalized doc has already put out the claim that Jackson tried to delay puberty with hormone injections at age thirteen.
Now, Murray is taking the gossip one step further by describing M.J.'s alleged fetishes, like dressing up like a clown for call girls in addition to feigning illnesses to get the attention of women. The claims come just about a month after news surrounding the singer's child molestation case resurfaced.
As for Conrad's salacious allegations, he writes that the entertainer would put on fake accents and pretend to have a stroke just to pick up the ladies. It's kind of a bizarre accusation considering Michael was a MAJOR celebrity at the time — did he really have to go to such lengths to get a date?
Most astonishingly, Conrad alleges that his former patient WANTED him to come clean with these sordid tales.
Wow. We don't even know what to do with this info!
So, do YOU believe Conrad?
