MTV Music Awards

Beyoncé scoops an incredible eight gongs at this years VMAs!
Queen Bey stole the show when she arrived on the red carpet looking like an Angel with none other than her adorable daughter Blue Ivy and her Lemonade squad in tow.

Beyonce’s massive entourage included the mothers of gun violence victims Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and Oscar Grant! The women (apart from Grant) feature in the singer’s Lemonade visual album holding pictures of their deceased sons. The 34-year-old Superstar went on to perform a show-stopping mega-mix version of Lemonade for the crowd in NYC.

The hit maker took home 8 Awards out of her 11 nominations (her highest number of nods ever). Adele had an impressive eight nominations.

Beyonce traded in her heavenly gown when she took to the stage in a racy lace leotard, fishnet stockings and patent leather knee-high boots. The globe-conquering star struck out at a camera with a baseball bat as she prowled across a walkway during her megamix performance.

Every part of her show was a master-class in stage-craft, with both the singer and her backing-dancers never missing a step! She also made a powerful statement as her backing dancers fell to the floor in red spotlight simulating victims being gunned-down.

The World’s best-selling Rapper of 2016, Drake, presented Rihanna with the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which recognizes an artist’s cultural impact. The two pop stars were all smiles as the kissed as she collected the coveted gong after Drake declared he’d been in love with Rihanna since he was 22.

As Rihanna had opened the show, she had to skip the Red Carpet, but made sure to make-up for it with her racy on-stage ensembles. As she romped through a series of her hits, including Diamonds and Work, she gave the excited audience an ample view of her famous figure.

The 28-year-old singer rocked waist high leather boots, a leotard and fur for a part of her performance. She also donned a flesh-flashing street-wear inspired ensemble. She also went all out with a billowing ballgown-com-jumpsuit.

Calvin Harris won the Best Male Video gong for “This Is What You Came For“, which he wrote with Taylor Swift and Best Electronic Video for ‘How Deep Is Your Love” . The Scottish Star could not make it to the ceremony, so he sent a video acceptance thanking all those who helped him win, but omitted to mention the Bad blood songstress.

Drake won for Best Hip Hop Video with “Hotline Bling“.

twenty one pilots won Best Rock Video for Heathens.

Fifth Harmony walked away with the Awards for Song Of The Summer for their Single “All In My Head” featuring Fetty Wap and Best Collaboration for their Song “Work From Home” featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

DNCE won the Award for Best New Artist’s Video.

This year’s awards ceremony also recognized David Bowie with four posthumous nominations.The late Legend was recognised in four categories. Blackstar was nominated for Best Art Direction, while Lazarus got a nod for Best Direction, Best Cinematography and Best Editing.
