The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards held Sunday night In Inglewood, CA was everything it was promised to be, and that’s about it.
Yes, there were performances by Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, then one with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj and Jessie J. Usher performed, but no one knows why, and of course Beyonce hogged 15 minutes of precious air time to sing every song off her latest album before quickly displaying a little PDA with Jay-Z and Blue Ivy and snatching her Video Vanguard award.
Taylor Swift performed “Shake It Off,” and I now finally realize I think she’s singing about her booty (J Lo is sitting back and laughing).
Miley Cyrus may have been the breakout star of the night, passing on her Video of the Year acceptance speech to a young man who spoke about our country’s homeless teens epidemic.
Here’s a list of the winners:
Video of the Year
MTV Artist to Watch
MTV Clubland Award
