Rihanna Wins Best International Song at France Awards

Rihanna Wins Best International Song at France Awards on Saturday (Jan. 26), as her popular dance track “Don’t Stop the Music” was named International Song of the Year at France’s most famous music awards ceremony. Rihanna’s biggest competition was troubled pop star Britney Spears, who beat out a stiff group to win the International Album of the Year prize for her comeback disc ‘Blackout’. ‘SexyBack’ singer Justin Timberlake won International Male Artist of the Year, while Canadian star Avril Lavigne was crowned International Female Artist of the Year. Amy Winehouse, who was nominated for International Revelation of the Year and International Album of the Year, was due to perform at the star-studded ceremony but was forced to pull out after entering rehab for drug addiction last week. Michael Jackson, Celine Dion and Kylie Minogue all received the NRJ Award of Honor for their contribution to music.
