The BET Awards were looooong, but on the bright side we got to see a lot of Rihanna being the baddest bitch of the evening.

From start to finish, Ri Ri had zero time for any nonsense and we were honored as audience members that she deigned to appear on our television screens.

Rihanna, we have your money, if it means you need payment for entertaining us with your bad girl shenanigans on Sunday night.

Here were all the ways Rihanna ruled the BET Awards:

1. When she sat in the audience with a roll of duct tape, but didn't feel the need to explain herself. She let Twitter spin their own theories.

"Don't worry about it, peasants. I could wear this as an accessory and still look ***flawless."

2. When she threw a stack of cash at BET's President of Programming Stephen Hill backstage.

He probably didn't pay her what he owed her.

3. When she stood onstage and asked for silence.

Or she was pointing up to let us know we should be thanking the heavens for her presence.

4. When the mere mention of her song "Bitch Better Have My Money" sent fans into a tizzy.

We're foaming at the mouth for that video.

5. When even Meek Mill was praising the skies above for sitting him near Rihanna.

6. When she came onstage and reminded everyone that we should all feel lucky that she's there.

#Blessed again.

7. When she taped Floyd Mayweather's mouth shut.

He needs to stop talking forever. Thank you, Ri.

8. When she was only in a few frames of her music video preview, and it was like the perfect appetizer.

We only got a taste, but it was all we needed.

9. When she posed with Nicki Minaj's mom .


Because she was basically the only celeb worth photographing that night.

Thank you for your time, Rihanna!
