For her performance, Rihanna wore a modest plaid dress and clunky punk shoes with writing scribbled all over them. One of the shoes had "F*** Off" written on them, reports The Telegraph.

While audience members may have been offended, a spokesperson for the show didn't seem to be up in arms.

"There were no close-up shots of Rihanna's shoes," the spokesperson said, according to MTV. "We believe the performance was suitable."

This was not the first time the songstress turned heads in Europe: Her latest music video "We Found Love" has been banned from being played before 10 p.m. in France, according to Pressparty.

Rihanna's new album "Talk, Talk, Talk" was released today, Nov. 21. The singer accepted an American Music Award for Favorite R&B/Soul Album Sunday remotely from the U.K.
