Spears, Rihanna kiss onstage at Billboard Music Awards
Los Angeles: Eight years after shocking the world by kissing Madonna onstage, Britney Spears repeated a tamer version of the act with Rihanna.
The 29-year-old pop princess received a hug and a wet one on the cheek from the R&B star as they performed onstage at the awards in Las Vegas on Sunday. The 23-year old Barbados born singer kissed Britney after they performed her hit single `S&M`.
Both women were clad in identical bondage style body suit as they took to the stage. While Britney slipped into the black style of suit, Rihanna opted for white.
Keeping within the bondage theme, Rihanna crawled on her knees while Britney commanded and dominated her with a long chain.
Britney also donned a bondage-style mask complete with bunny ears as she wrapped her wrists up in chains.
Watching the show in the audience was teen pop star Justin Bieber, who scooped up six awards including the Best New Artist, Digital Artist of the Year, Fan Favourite of the Year, Top Social Artist, Top Streaming Artist, Top Pop Album and Top Pop Album last night at the glitz ceremony.
Dominating the event alongside Bieber was rapper Eminem, who also picked up six awards - Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Albums, Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Song and Top Rap Album.
Katy Perry, Rihanna and Shakira managed to nab two gongs each, while Beyonce Knowles was honoured with a Millennium Award for her career achievements so far.
