9/7/2012




ONE DIRECTION
won three trophies last night at the "MTV Video Music Awards":  Best Pop Video, Best New Artist and Most Share-Worthy Video.  That made them the night's big winners.

CHRIS BROWN won Best Male Video for "Turn Up the Music", beating out his so-called rival DRAKE in that category.  But Drake won Best Hip-Hop Video for "HYFR".

RIHANNA took the big one, Video of the Year, for "We Found Love".

Other winners included Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, Demi Lovato, Beyonce, Katy Perry and Calvin Harris.

There really weren't any buzz-worthy moments on the show, but here were a few:

During RIHANNA'S performance to open the show, A$AP ROCKY grabbed a handful of her ass.  (--Check out a pic here.)  (Huffington Post)

 

 MILEY CYRUS and PINK showed up with the same hairstyle, although Miley showed more cleavage.  (Here's a pic.)  (People)

 

GABBY DOUGLAS did some gymnastics during ALICIA KEYS' performance of "Girl On Fire".  (You can find video here.)
