Rihanna will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs this year, going down August 28 in NYC.

Previous recipients of this award include MichaelJackson, Madonna, Peter Gabriel, Guns N’ Roses, The Beastie Boys, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé and Kanye West – so she’s in good company to say the least! Rih will also hit the stage that night as well, and I’m sure she’ll have quite the performance up her sleeve!
