Rihanna duct-tapes Floyd: Rihanna Mayweather, Shutting Floyd Mayweather up is not easy. But pop star Rihanna did her best to keep the Money Man quiet as the pair sat next to one another at the BET Awards on Sunday night.
R&B star Rihanna had to resort to drastic measures to stop the pound-for-pound king running his mouth off during the ceremony as she stuck a piece of duct tape across his face.
The awards, held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California, were established by the Black Entertainment Television Network and celebrate African Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment.
Undefeated American Mayweather, who took his professional boxing record to 48-0 when he beat Manny Pacquiao in their Fight of the Century bout on May 2 in Las Vegas, was nominated for Sportsman of the Year.
But he was beaten to the prize by Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, who was named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player last season.
Rihanna, who was wearing the roll of silver duct tape as a bracelet, was up for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist but was pipped to the the award by Beyonce.
Serena Williams, who begins her assault on Wimbledon on Monday at SW19, was named Sportswoman of the Year but, for obvious reasons, was not in attendance on Sunday.
The 33-year-old is bidding to keep her season of Grand Slams on track after winning both the Australian and French Opens earlier this year.
