RIHANNA EMERGES AS TOP VMA WINNER

 

Rihanna and Justin Timberlake each took home two major awards at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night (Sept. 9) at Las Vegas' Palms Casino Resort. Timberlake won the first "Quadruple Threat" trophy and male artist of the year, while Rihanna won video of the year and monster single of the year for "Umbrella" featuring Jay-Z.

"I want to challenge MTV right now to play more videos," Timberlake said while accepting the "Quadruple Threat" trophy, and later hammered home the point by bashing the Jessica and Ashlee Simpson-themed reality shows for which the network is well-known.

Beyonce took home the Earth-Shattering collaboration trophy for "Beautiful Liar," which features Shakira while Fergie was named female artist of the year but was a surprising no-show to accept it.

In what was supposed to be a dazzling start, Britney Spears opened the show with what turned out to be an extremely lethargic version of her new song, "Gimme More," the first single form her Nov. 13 release of her first Jive album in four years. After emerging from a coin-operated booth, Chris Brown showed off his impressive dance moves during "Wall to Wall," all while dressed in a Charlie Chaplin-like getup. Rihanna then emerged in a black bodysuit and high heels for a run through "Umbrella."

Alicia Keys later unveiled her new single, "No One" which morphed into a cover of George Michael's "Freedom."

Other performances were frequently teased from suites in the hotel, including Kanye West performing his new, Daft Punk-sampling hit "Stronger" and the T-Pain-assisted "Good Life" in a room filled with revelers in glow-in-the-dark glasses and 50 Cent rapping "Ayo Technology" with Timberlake.

One of the few true surprises of the evening was an appearance by legendary hip-hop producer Dr. Dre, who has spent the past several years out of the limelight while working on his next album, "Detox." "'Detox,' it's coming, baby," he told the crowd. There was also a scuffle between ex-Pamela Anderson husbands Kid Rock and Tommy Lee, but details were still coming together as the show ended.
