Don’t act as though you didn’t see this news coming from a mile away. The industry’s current dominant Pop star, Rihanna, has officially announced that she will hit the stage at the 2012 MTV VMA with her auto-tuned mic, high fashion outfits and troop of dancers, yet what will she perform?
Rihanna has been working on a new LP for months and she has consistently stuck to the annual Thanksgiving sales period as the time to release her albums, so many speculate that she will debut a new song at the 2012 MTV VMA. In fact, with her most recent single, ‘Where Have You Been’, prepared to exit the Billboard Hot 100, this will be the prime time for Rihanna to launch a new project.
Still, until such reports are confirmed, I’ll just assume that Rihanna will perform a medley of her recent hits and bask in the applause of people who don’t even care about music. Thankfully, the lineup of the 2012 MTV VMA, which airs on September 6th at 8pm ET, also includes Alicia Keys, Pink, Taylor Swift and Green Day so we won’t be completely bored.
