The biggest night in music also known as the MTV Video Music Awards, VMA’s, went live Thursday, September 6 at 8/7 c at the Staple Center in Los Angeles. Host and Philadelphia native Kevin Hart went on record to say that NO one was safe and off limits for jokes during his hosting stint this year.
The night kicked off with a performance from Rihanna performing “Cockiness” and “We Found Love.” Other performers included: Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, Green Day, P!nk, Alicia Keys and One Direction. Speaking of One Direction, they cleaned up for their first time at the VMA’s. The “What Makes You Beautiful” band took home three moonman’s and also did a stellar performance. Not bad for their first time around.
A very un-expecting moment occurred while the main show cameras were not rolling. Ex’s Rihanna and Chris Brown were spotted in a very sweet embrace. Ri approached the “Turn Up the Music” singer and gave him a kiss and a hug. She also embraced the guy sitting next to him and gave CB a rub on the head as she departed. *Le sigh* Ri and CB are like the music version of Robbie and Ki Ki; I loved them together and hate seeing them apart.
Other highlights of the night included: Kevin Hart telling the audience to get over the fact that Kristen Stewart cheated and that everybody makes mistakes, an exclusive look at “Breaking Dawn Part 2” presented by some of the cast, [ CC: GGB special post], Rebel Wilson’s hot new bod with The Wanted and Rihanna’s gorgeous face and new hairstyle.

Congrats to all the winners of the night!
