In addition to her own solo performance, Rihanna will reportedly support T.I. by backing him up in brand new single 'Live Your Life' for 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.
As recently posted on Rap-Up, Rihanna has been booked for a live performance with rapper T.I. on next month's MTV Video Music Awards. The female singer, who has teamed up with Miley Cyrus and Carrie Underwood for "Just Stand Up" single, will reportedly perform her own solo performance "Disturbia" and then share stage with T.I. in the rapper's "Live Your Life" single from upcoming "Paper Trail", which will hit the market on September 30. The collaboration with Rihanna will be T.I.'s first appearance at a major award show since his October arrest before the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta.
The MTV annual awards will be premiered on September 7 from Hollywood's Paramount Pictures Studio with British comedian Russell Brand as its host. Performers who are already announced, include teen group Jonas Brothers, and rappers Lil Wayne and Kid Rock.
On the contrary, Britney Spears, who has been debated whether she will perform at the major show after taped on the commercial ads, will only sit on the audience desk. A source close to the singer says as quoted on BreatheHeavy, "Britney is so excited to attend the VMA show, but as of now there will be no performance. Right now Britney is focusing on her kids and recording."
