An All-Star Tribute to the Tuff Gong
Just last week reggae lovers celebrated what would have been Bob Marley’s 68th Earthstrong. Rihanna and the Marleys felt it was only right to do sup’m at tonight’s Grammy Awards in tribute to the Tuff Gong. They will be joined by Bruno Mars, who has called Marley “one of the greatest songwriters ever,” and Sting, whose work with The Police helped to bring reggae music to the rock and pop radio. Rihanna has often expressed her admiration for Marley and the Tuff Gong’s impact on her music and her life. She performed his classic “Redemption Song,” to help raise money for Haitian earthquake survivors and even showed her love by wearing a custom-made Bob Marley dress during her SNL performance. If you missed their version of “Could You Be Loved,” we got you… Video After the Jump.
Looks like Rihanna’s really feeling that line about “We’ve got a life to live, so go to hell if what you’re thinking is not right.”

I think it’s great she payed tribute to a Legend such as Bob Marley! He is admired by many and his legacy lives on. Good post #Realism
After semi-watching the Grammys for an almost unbearable hour and a half, I thought one Bob Marley song for 2 minutes 20 seconds a bit sad for what they were hyping as a tribute. Though Damian brought the fiyah! Bless!
That was not a tribute they sang one Bob Marley hit and not in its entirety. The other two songs were not Bobs…..disappointment.
