Rihanna Will OPEN The 2012 VMAs By Performing The ‘Cockiness (Love It)’ Remix With A$AP Rocky & ‘We Found Love’

Rihanna will open the VMAs with “Cockiness,” and we’re FINE with it!

Rihanna Navy, STAND UP, and salute Princess Ri, because she’s going to be OPENING the 2012 VMAs with “We Found Love” and a brand-new remix of “Cockiness (Love It)” with that pretty motherf***** A$AP Rocky (because Rihanna can make it rain men). So get ready, because the VMAs are about to get a lot nastier as Rihanna commands you to lick her persuasion, suck that titular cockiness, and, of course swallow. (WHAT? That’s what SHE SAID. Also, speaking of licking, I’ve offered to personally clean the VMA stage with my own tongue to ready it for the royalty that is the reign of Rihanna.) It’s Rihanna’s fourth VMA performance, and something tells me that “Cockiness” is gonna be her freakiest VMA look at the good girl gone bad. (Might wanna have a box of tissues handy… for whatever you might need it for. “Just in case.”)

Find out more about Rihanna’s 2012 MTV VMA “Cockiness” performance, and listen to the new remix after the jump.

Rihanna’s also nominated for five VMAs, including Video Of The Year for “We Found Love” and “Take Care” with Drake as well as Best Pop Video and Best Female Video for “We Found Love.” And knowing how hard the Rihanna Navy’s been training for their VMA voting mission, something tells me that she’ll be back up on that Staples Center stage to accept a Moonman or two after her opening performance.

Listen to an exclusive remix of “Cockiness (Love It) feat. A$AP Rocky” (NSFW) right now. Meanwhile, get ready to get nasty with these Rihanna GIFs before she opens the 2012 MTV VMAs.
