The 2016 MTV Video Music Awards are set to kick off in interesting fashion.
For, Rihanna will officially open the show tomorrow.
The Bajan sensation made the announcement herself this evening. She said on Twitter:
Kickin Awf the @MTV #VMAs Sun at 9PM! Thank you for this 🎨 in honor of the #VMAs2016 era @pandagunda! #RiRiVanguardhttps://t.co/sEpgVVVfcz
— Rihanna (@rihanna) August 27, 2016
It’s quite the coup for the star, who’ll also be receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at tomorrow’s event.
That said, she’ll have fierce competition for column inches as the likes of Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and allegedly Beyonce are also taking to the stage.
The 2016 VMAs airs live from Madison Square Garden tomorrow 8/9c.
