If you weren’t aware, the American Music Awards are taking place at the same time of the New England Patriots nightmare performance against the Denver Broncos, so we have got you covered and will make sure that you are up to date with the news that you may be missing.

For those unaware, the one and only Rihanna has apparently done enough to earn her the first ever AMA Icon Award. Perhaps the award was for those incredible glasses that she wore to support the Miami Heat in their first round match up against the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2013 NBA Playoffs.

We aren’t quite sure what goes in to winning an Icon award, but Rihanna must have done it and her good friend L.A. Reid seemed to approve. Plus, Rihanna looked incredible, so it is worth seeing.
