Rihanna Added To 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Performers

Now that we know more about Rihanna than we’d ever thought (or even hoped), it’s time to get back to the what we love most about the too-sexy-for-Nivea singer: the jams. And where better to start with a performance at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards?

Our favorite Barbados tour guide retweeted Friday (Aug. 24): “@DreezyOnHer: OMG!! RIHANNA’S GONNA BE PERFORMING AT THE VMAs!!!!!” PHUCK YES I WILLLL!!! JUST FOR MY NAVY!!!!” For Rihanna fans, this should be the icing on the cake, as Ri is already tied with Drake for the most nominations.

Rihanna joins the 2012 VMAs growing list of already-confirmed performers, which includes Taylor Swift, One Direction, Green Day, Alicia Keys and Pink.

Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller and Team USA Olympian gymnasts the Fierce Five (McKayla Maroney, Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas, Kyla Ross and Aly Raisman) will all present awards when the show airs live on Thursday, September 6 at 8 p.m. EST.
