In between performing "Cockiness/We Found Love" and forgetting to thank Calvin Harris during her acceptance speech for Video of the Year, RiRi had the opportunity to interact with a few friends, enemies and potential exes.
With Drake to her left, Chris Brown in the building and likely dozens of non-famous folk who’ve had NSFW dreams about her hovering nearby, what’s a girl to do?

Call it confusing, shocking and unacceptable, but anyone who sat through her primetime chat with Oprah knows that none of this has been easy on Ri, particularly when it's all going down in the public eye.

Same goes for allowing A$AP Rocky to grab a piece of her behind.
