[RECAP] 2017 MTV’s Video Music Awards!

Summer 2017 is almost over and that meant MTV will send it out with a bang via its annual awards program, The Video Music Awards (VMAs)!

This year’s VMAs were nothing short of lit, and we were surprised at all of the celebrities, reality stars, artists, and actors that showed up in full force!

However, everything was not as poppin’ as it should be. First of all, we love Katy Perry dearly, but she should never again be allowed to host any awards show. She is corny, not  funny, and would have served better doing more performances last night to give the people a taste of what her upcoming tour will look like. Still, the performances saved the show. Kendrick Lamar was the superhero of performances last night visually, performing two of his hit singles, DNA and Humble. Check out his performance below!

Pink, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, stayed true to her style and performed in the air–atop a convertible, albeit! Her medley of past hits definitely oozed with early 2000’s nostalgia. Still we wish she would have done some of her more historic hits like most Girls and Just Like A Pill. You can catch her acceptance speech below!

Other highlights of the night include Taylor Swift (even though she did not show up) debuting her new music video, Look What You Made Me Do; a true nod to the VMAs and consisting of past and present versions of herself.

We love how Nicki Minaj finally jumped in on a performance when she and Katy did Swish Swish. We definitely think it’s time for the former to debut a new album though, some of these other female rappers are “Making money moves!”

The night was full of amazement and we want to congratulate all the winners! Check them out on the next page!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
