Rihanna certainly set things off right during the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards when the singer debuted the remix to her Talk That Talk single Cockiness for the show's first performance!

Sporting her fresh new haircut, skintight red leather pants, sheer red top and matching head wrap, RiRi took command of the stage in typical fashion. A$AP Rocky, who's featured on the remix, arrived to belt out his lyrics as Rihanna and her dancers got into their groove. The two performers even shared a smooch at the end!

Rihanna also gave fans a chance to party alongside her as she jumped in the crowd to perform her hit We Found Love, for which she won the video of the year award for. Check out her sizzling performance in the video below!
