Grammy Awards 2013: Rihanna Belts It Out For A Stripped-Down Performance (PHOTOS & VIDEO)

Published April 22, 2013 by gossipzoo

Slow jam, indeed.

Rihanna toned down her elaborate and electrifying performances from years’ past, this time opting for a slower beat with “Stay,” her ballad from Unapologetic during the 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Donning a low-cut black dress, the singer put a twist to the dramatic song as singer-songwriter Mikky Ekko joined her for a duet.

Before hitting the stage, RiRi hit the red carpet in style, arriving in a red, custom-made Azzedine Alaia gown.

Throughout the show, the “Diamonds” singer has also been spotted cozying up to her beau Chris Brown as they enjoyed the evening’s exciting wins and performances.

The pair are respectively nominated for awards: Rihanna earned nods for Best Pop Solo Performance for her song “Where Have You Been” and Best Rap/Song Collaboration for “Talk That Talk” with Jay-Z. As for Chris, he was in contention for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Rihanna also joined Ziggy Marley for a tribute to the late legend of reggae, Bob Marley, with a cover of “Could You Be Loved.”

Tell us: What did you think of Rihanna’s performances…and reunion with Chris? Sound off in the comments, below.

Chris Brown Wore All-White On Grammys Night To Find ‘Inner Peace,’ Stylist Reveals

Chris Brown

They say white is the color of innocence and tranquility — well, bad boy hip-hop star Chris Brown certainly tried to channel that at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

In recent weeks, Brown got involved in an alleged brawl with Grammy winner Frank Ocean at a Los Angeles recording studio, while the Los Angeles District Attorney also claimed he skipped community service as part of his probation for assaulting Rihanna four years ago.

Then on Saturday, he crashed his Porsche into a wall on the way to a children’s charity event before attending the Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch. Brown was “ruthlessly pursued by paparazzi,” his rep said.

“It’s cool. I’m fine,” Brown told E!’s Ryan Seacrest before Sunday’s ceremony at Staples Center (You can watch the interview after the jump). “A little bit of bumps. I’m good though.”

And when he stepped out on the red carpet before the world’s press at music’s night of nights, he looked more like ‘an angel’ than ‘a devil’ for the assembled crowds.

“Like most artists, Chris Brown has experienced turmoil both in his personal and professional life,” his stylist, Daver Campbell, told Celebuzz in an exclusive interview.

“White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity and virginity and considered to be the color of perfection.”

Campbell and his styling partner, Ugo Mozie, helped mastermind Brown’s red carpet look which compromised of a white Lanvin suit and shirt matched with Dries Van Noten shoes, plus a David Yurman ring and Rolex watch.

The all-white ensemble got the vote of approval from Brown’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna and perfectly complimented her stunning all red Azzedine Alaia gown. See photos of her flaunt the see-through gown here.

And although he stayed seated to clap Ocean when he beat himout for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Brown’s stylist claims the “Look at Me Now” singer’s outfit reflected how he really felt on the night.

“White represents a successful beginning and only being in the second month of the new year, we wanted to vocalize this with little to no words,” revealed Ugo Mozie.

“I believe Chris wearing white speaks volumes and establish a new journey and peace in his self and rising career in music.”

The two stylists worked closely with Brown to come-up with his Grammy night style and revealed the star was “excited” about attending the event, despite having a tough few weeks.

Campbell and Mozie had three fittings with Brown before he walked the red carpet in a bid to make sure that it was tailored to perfection.

Do you think the R&B singer can stay out trouble this year? Answer yes or no, below.

And The Grammy’s Most Shocking Trend Was … Pants?!?

Grammy Awards 2013: Red Carpet Trends

The hair was unfussy and the makeup mostly classic and pretty. The fashion was sophisticated but relatively subdued.

So what were the big style statements of the night — and who made them?

From sparkle, sheer and slits to black, green and red, the red carpet at this year’s Grammy Awards could have been mistaken for the Emmy Awards or Golden Globes, offering up much of the same trends we’ve been seeing for the past few seasons.

Still, there were a few standout looks strutting down the red carpet: Pants made their red carpet debut for the season, with Beyonce, Kaley Cuoco and Janelle Monae opting for black skinnies over dresses and gowns.

And while longer hemlines may not seem shocking, for the Grammy’s — the first awards show to have a dress code implemented to keep the attendees from showing too much skin — the absence of mini dresses was certainly surprising.

Replacing the mini were knee-length and tea-length hemlines worn by the likes of Alexa Chung, Kat Dennings and Faith Hill. But there were still plenty of stems on display courtesy of daring slits and sheer skirts.

Check out more of the night’s biggest trends below.
