AMAs 2013: Rihanna Performs ‘Diamonds,’ Singer’s Mom Presents Her With Icon Award

Rihanna may have made history by receiving the first-ever Icon Award at this year’s American Music Awards, but her mother, Monica Fenty, definitely stole the show with her heart-warming speech to her daughter.

Joining the songstress on stage, the matriarch gushed about watching her little girl maturing into a grown woman, fumbling some of her words as emotions overtake her. Heck, even Justin Timberlake thought the whole thing was adorable. He asked the crowd moments later, “How cute is Rihanna’s mom?”
