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.

Its not enough these celebrities make tons of money, they have to make up shows to give themselves awards too. Really looking forward to the only award show I enjoy--Golden Globes with Ricky Gervais who isn't intimidated by celebrity royalty!

She doesn't care. She already got her fans' money. Now she's spending it in style.

Who the f*** wrote this article? It seriously sounds like a 15 year old kid blogging something. I agree that the People's Choice Awards are stupid but for a celebrity site like this to just throw a personal opinion like that out there reeks of amateur hour writing.

you people make me sick    

I agree with people saying they are boring and stupid but it's part of her damn job. If she doesn't want to do it the find another career.

Yes award shows are stupid, particularly ones where we have to watch Hollywood give awards to itself. At least the PCA are based on real people's opinions instead of some Hollywood self-LoveFest. The Oscars are what's stupid.
