•    The "Umbrella" singer also set up the Clara Lionel Foundation, which works to improve health and cultural services in her home of Barbados and beyond.
•    Rihanna will perform at the ceremony in New York, where she is nominated for four VMA's for her song "Work" with Canadian rapper Drake, and her collaboration with Calvin Harris on "This is What You Came For."
•    It was awarded to three fictional characters (Godzilla, Jason Voorhees, and Chewbacca) and Richard Roundtree's win was for his performance as John Shaft.
