It wasn’t the weed that was making Rihanna giggle last night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles. Rihanna showed up late to the iHeartRadio Music Awards and blamed it on being stuck in traffic. Pitbull picked up the Hip-Hop/R&B Song of the Year trophy for Rihanna. On top of being late she had the giggles and it looked like she was amused by Ariana Grande dancing. Leading up to the event Ariana was working overtime with her choreographer and she looked like she had 2 left feet. I guess it was funny enough because Rihanna, was laughing up a storm.  Watch Ariana’s performance here!
