The biggest stars of music descended onto NYC’s Madison Square Garden last night for the 2016 MTV VMAs. Rihanna opened the awards ceremony with a montage of her music, and Britney slinked onto stage performing “Me, Myself & I” with G-Easy, proving she still has what it takes to smoke up a stage. Beyonce, who headed to the show with 11 nominations, scored Video of the Year for “Formation” and Breakthrough Longform Video for “Lemonade,” while Calvin Harris featuring Rhihanna took Best Male Video for “This is What you came For.” Drake nabbed Best Hip Hop Video for “Hotline Bling,” Fifth Harmony and Fetty Wap scored Song of the summer with “All in My Head.” Check the full list of winners and some of the hottest fashions on the red carpet:
While on the MTV red carpet, Ariana Grande confirmed she is dating Mac Miller. She promised pre-show host Charlamagne Tha God that she would “send [Miller] your regards,” adding that he was not there with her, but was “being supportive. It’s okay to be alone even when you have a boo.” The two were spotted leaving a NYC nightclub Friday night together and even took in the Museum of Ice Cream while in town. The duo collaborated on the 2013 hit, “The Way” and even shared a kiss in the music video.
Sony’s Screen Gems’ horror flick about teenagers who attempt to rob a blind man’s house, “Don’t Breathe,” scared away its competition this weekend, scoring $26.1 million, far better than expectations and surpassing its $10 million production budget. That knocked “Suicide Squad” to second with $12.1 million, followed by “Kubo and the Two Strings” with $7.9 million, “Sausage Party” with $7.7 million and Jason Statham’s “Mechanic: Resurrection” with $7.5 million.
Enjoy the kickoff to the last August week!
