Rihanna Wins Artist Of The Year At iHeartRadio Music Awards
It’s definitely been a huge year for Rihanna, so it’s great that she won Artist of the Year at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A. Her acceptance speech was witty, sweet and of course honored all the fans who awarded her with it!
Of course, Rihanna spent all of the time thanking her team and her fans when she took the stage on May 1, when beating out Imagine Dragons, Justin Timberlake, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Maroon 5 for the iHeartRadio Artist of the Year award.
“I know I’m a pain in the ass, but it’s worth it because we got the biggest award of the night!” she said to all of her team and anyone who had ever worked with her. It was definitely worth it — that was her fourth award of the night. She also won Best Fan Army for her famous Rihanna Navy, Hip Hop/R&B Song of the Year for “Pour It Up,” and Song of the Year for “Stay.”
So, we’re pretty much she has the right to be a “pain in the ass” sometimes!
It was a huge night for music with performances from some of our favorite stars. We’ve got to say that it was amazing to see the biggest stars thanking the fans since they‘re the ones who gave them this award.
Austin Mahone took home the Instagram Award, thanks to his Mahonies tweeting non-stop — what an honor that has to be! We’re absolutely loving that the fans are so dedicated. Ariana Grande was shocked when Hilary Duff presented her with the Young Influencer Award. Pharrell took home the iHeart Innovator award too, which is such an honor and he was so humble about receiving.
