The actual MTV Video Music Awards took place last night (Sunday, August 30th) in Los Angeles hosted by Miley Cyrus. If you missed the show, there was plenty of drama, tears, and memorable fashion moments I’ll fill you in on.
Nicki Minaj opened with a melody of “Trini Dem Girls” and “The Night Is Still Young” and ended with a duet of “Bad Blood” with Taylor Swift. It was pretty comical considering the two just ended a Twitter feud a few weeks ago.
Taylor Swift presented the Video Vanguard Award to Kanye West who famously crashed her 2009 VMA acceptance speech. She admitted that his album was the first on she ever bought when she was just 12 years old. She also admitted, “I have been a fan of his, since I can remember, because Kanye defines what it is to be a creative force in music, fashion, and, well, life.” Then the two hugged it out and Kanye gave his long acceptance speech following a surprising announcement to the world. Brace yourselves. He ended by saying, “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided, in 2020, to run for president.”
When Nicki Minaj won the VMA for Best Hip-Hop Video, she called Miley out about an interview where she was talking trash on the “Anaconda” artist. Miley was in shock, and sources say this it was totally unplanned.
“Trap Queen” rapper Fetty Wap won the Artist to Watch award, formerly known as Best New Artist.
Justin Bieber performed “Where Are You Now”, which he became surprisingly emotional and started crying.
The fashion was a little disappointing, however; Miley Cyrus (host) changed her outfit 14 times so that was entertaining to say the least.
Other perfomances through the night included: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, The Weekend, Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, Pharell Williams, and Tori Kelly.
Below are images of some of the best dressed on the red carpet. Overall. it was a pretty boring show, there were highlights, but never anything that shocked us.
