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.

There is a real story here about the People's Choice Award that is being ignored. The show that won one of the biggest awards that being TV Drama and the lesser award of Best SciFi was NOT invited to attend. The category wasn't even mentioned on the show! Think about it...Best TV Drama wasn't mentioned once. The fans of the show that won have been hitting the People's Choice with thousands of comments and emails. How many awards shows have been hit with thousands of complaints from fans of a show THAT WON? They are demanding an apology. If they were invited and chose not to attend that's one thing, but people from their camp are saying there was no invite as their categories were not going to be acknowledged.

"Hated at the highest".....if you have so much hatred for Rihanna don't read article about her in the first place far more to comment. Can you ever imagine the amount of damage that you you do to yourself when you have to think up the evil thoughts and then write them. This anger remains with you for a while before it goes away and in the meantime you infect everyone else around you. Think about it.
