Its the American Music Awards again and Rihanna knows she’s taking home at least one award – the Icon Award. Believe it or not, the 25-year-old Bajan beauty has outsold most other female solo artists – including Beyonce. Top nominee Robin Thicke will perform as well, and so will Miley Cyrus, but no word on whether they’ll be doing that together again. (We did hear Robin has vetoed any possibility of that.) TLC will reunite onstage with a surprise guest. It all goes down Sunday on ABC. If you’re in the mood for a show, both India. Arie and Jaheim and Chrisette Michele are on tour. If laughter is your preference, Katt Williams and Chris Tucker are in a city near you soon. And for you HBCU fans “The Battle of the Real H.U.” takes place this weekend to determine bragging rights for the whole next year for either Howard or Hampton. Check out what else is good this weekend.
