The MTV Video Music Awards has made its orbit around the sun, so it's time to celebrate the best and dopest visuals from this past year. It's somewhat of an alternative to the Grammys as it is more about what's popping in pop culture. And ever since Kanye gave us life while interrupting Taylor Swift to stan for Queen Bey, we have been hooked on watching the show.
I remember when music videos were my everything. I used to race home after school to make sure I could watch AJ and Free on 106 & Park countdown the hottest videos. I was also obsessed with La La during her stint on TRL. I still get excited about the VMAs because they remind me of a simpler time. Best of all, tonight Missy Elliott received the Village Vanguard Award and we are ecstatic because it's about time MTV gave this queen her flowers.
But of course, I'm really on the lookout for who will slay the carpet. The stars didn't hold back either; flip through the slideshow for some of the hottest looks from this year's show.
"Motivation" songstress showed up with her killer abs in tow. She is giving us Aaliyah x Queen of the Damned vibes and we live! The embellished, cutout dress was designed by Nicolas Jebran.
