Rihanna

Screw People's Choice

I'll Be Across the Street

1/12/2012 1:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna front row at the L.A. Clippers game

Rihanna
totally blew off the People's Choice Awards in L.A. last night ... TO GO TO A CLIPPERS GAME ... (bet you didn't think you'd hear that 5 years ago).

And ... to add salt to the wound ... the game was right across the street.

We don't blame her -- the game was incredible ... with the Clips overtaking the Heat in overtime (suck it, LeBron) ... but enough about that ...

Point is, Rihanna actually won the People's Choice Award for "Favorite R&B Artist" -- but did she violate some unspoken code of ethics by skipping out on the show ... just to chill?

No. Because the "People's Choice Awards" are stupid.

Now here's a video of Blake Griffin dunking all over Miami last night.

Her fans have made her what she is. Her fans honored her by voting for her. She should have been there and graciously accepted her award.

More proof that most basketball fans in L.A. are complete bandwagon turds. Where the hell were these people when they sucked?

I have no problem with it. Who cares about the People's Choice Awards? It doesn't mean Rihanna hates her fans for not showing up to it.

Lesson to anyone who has purchased one of her albums or voted for her to win the PCA ... she doesn't care about you. You shouldn't care about her.

The one awards show they should not miss is the People Choice. It is the only one the fans choose the winners instead of the industry giving themselves awards. Bad form on her part....

Award shows are stupid. they were not designed to honor anyone but to play into their egos and make a ton of money in commercials.

We don't go through 12 award shoes for best teacher or best secretary or best cop... jobs that are extensively more important than being a small part of a song that is popular. their reward is the embarrassing sums of cash they get that should last hundreds thousands of people a lifetime and yet they blow through it in a year because they have no respect for how they got it and how little work they had to do for it. Everyone should boycott the media opportunity of award shows. they are boring and stupid
