Rihanna is getting ready to slay.

The 28-year-old singer was snapped in New York City ahead of her big MTV Video Music Awards performance on Sunday where she'll be celebrating her Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, stunning in her workout wear. Rihanna looked flawless going makeup-free and putting up her hair in a simple bun on Thursday, showing off her slim stomach in a black bra top and sweats.

... Looking good, RiRi!

Multiple sources tell ET that Rihanna will perform a whopping four times during the VMAs, and that none other than Barbra Streisand and Frank Ocean will be presenting her with the award.

Clearly, the 2016 VMAs is shaping up to be an epic ladies night. Beyonce -- who has the most nominations out of any artist this year -- is rumored to be performing, as well as Britney Spears, and Ariana Grande with Nicki Minaj. The gold medal-winning "Final Five" U.S. women's gymnastics team -- Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez -- also told ET that they will be making an appearance.
