Rihanna wins at World Music Awards

Congrats to Bajan super star Rihanna, who yesterday copped the award of World's Best Selling Pop Female Artiste at the 2007 World Music Awards in Monte Carlo, Monaco, beating out Beyoncé and Shakira.

Rihanna arrived at the awards resplendent in a mermaid-styled gown.

Rih-Rih posed with hip-hop star Ciara (centre) and R&B legend Patti LaBelle, who was honoured at the ceremony for her outstanding career.

Rihanna also met with the ruler of Monaco, Prince Albert (left).

Later, she performed her hit single Umbrella.

She capped off the night with winning the award of World's Best Selling Pop Female Artiste.

The show was taped and will be broadcast later in 160 countries. It is expected to reach approximately one billion viewers. Proceeds from a black-tie banquet and auction before the awards are to go toward building a hospital in the strife-torn Darfur region of Sudan.
