So the annual Barbados Music Awards were held this weekend (pics to come later) and one noticeable absence was our teen music queen Rihanna. Where was she and what was she up to?
Our girl was at the 2008 NRJ Music Awards in Cannes, France, where she copped the International Song of the Year Award for "Don't Stop the Music".
She also debuted a new cropped do and cut quite an elegant figure on the red carpet at the Palais des Festivals.
Congrats to Ms. Rihanna and good luck at the Grammys on February 10!
