Rihanna Accepts The Icon Award
Rihanna humbly accepted her award, saying:
“I’m so nervous right now. I’m terrible at giving speeches. I’ll just start by saying, twenty years ago is when I really started to make your life a living hell with my annoying little husky man voice you called it. I mean, just disrupting the entire neighborhood…I annoyed every one of my neighbors and ten years later I was blessed enough to meet Evan and Carl and I was working with them.
I auditioned for them at fifteen — my mom came and she was looking at us like, ‘You’re in school uniform and you still have some stuff to finish before you can think about doing this’ and I literally begged and pleaded and she finally said ‘yes’ and I thank you for that yes because that was the beginning of it all.
Shortly after that, my demo was done and I met Jay Z and Jay Brown and those are the guys who really believed in me, L.A. Reid. So many people I have to thank for the success of keeping me sane, my friends, my family, my brothers, my glam team for making me look cute all the time!
My fans I love you so much, you have no idea. You keep me driven. You keep this thing special. I can’t believe I’m 25 years old and I’m holding an icon award. That is weird to even say out loud. I thank you and I’m grateful. You all play such an important part. I’m only as good as my team so I love you guys so much. Thank you!”
