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.

She's pitiful. Her ahem, "fans" put her where she is. It shows her lack of character that she just blows it off. Trash

I mean C'mon, watching ballers beat up Lebron or listening to Kaley Cuoco for 3 friggin hours are you kidding me, and OMG she's more Obnoxious than her character Penny, you need an ensemble cast like BBT to drown her out!

So all the people who listen and buy her music, watch and love her are stupid? I guess that means all the "people" who watch TMZ, read the web, go on your tours, are stupid too, you've got a point there TMZ writer.

People like Rihanna have no talent anyway. She can go screw herself and so can Chris Brown, Kanye West and all those other Hip Hop phuques.

And Im sure she doesn't regret not going either. To attend some lame award show and have your award go to Demi Lovato is a joke beyond all description. Rihanna has the most Pop #1's, top tens, and chart entries of any artist, ever. But hey, They're not serious about these awards, so lets give one to the ONLY nominee to attend... As the article said, People's choice is stupid.

I disagree with the writer. Sometimes you have to suck it up for your fans. The award itself doesn't really matter. The fact is her fans voted for her and she should have shown her appreciation. Pretty pathetic behavior on her part.
