Kisses, Disses and Babies: The 2012 MTV VMA Moments You Can’t Live Without! [PHOTOS]
Alicia Keys and hubby Swizz Beatz brought their baby to the VMAs. Baby Egypt Dean was bouncing along to Pink’s performance of “Blow Me Once Last Kiss.” Is it because that’s one of the only things he can do at such a young age?
Who’s singing along to One Direction? Olympic Gold Medalist Jordyn Wieber and Grammy Winner Taylor Swift both rocked out to One Direction at the VMAs. Seems as though celebs can have crushes on boy band hotties too.
Not all of the good moments happened during the actual show. During the pre-show we got to see the “Fierce Five” show up. Jordyn Wieber had her own gold medal moment when Katy Perry grabbed her bicep and kissed it. Jordyn was wowed, and took to Twitter right away to tell her followers!
One thing we hate to love and love to hate: exes. Whether they’re hooking up again, breaking up again, or feuding ferrociously over Twitter, we’re all about it. So we were so happy to see that after Taylor Swift’s performance of “We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together,” Taylor Lautner was nothing but smiles and gave a round of gracious genuine applause for the blonde beauty, who just so happens to be a c0-star and an ex. Maybe exes can be friends after all!
Nicki Minaj looked pretty ticked off when Kevin Hart was making jokes in the beginning of the show. Is it because he was talking about her “Young Money” family member Drake and collaboration buddy Chris Brown? No body messes with Nicki, she might pound the alarm.
And speaking of Nicki, did she “bahh” like a sheep when she won her award?
“Starships were meant to fly-ah-ah-ah-ah..”
Lil Wayne seemed to be having a good night; after a high energy rap performance with 2 Chainz, he and Drake won the award for “Best Hip Hop Video.” He flashed an ever so cheesy thumbs up to the audience, and then pulled his shirt up for a nice ab-shot. Thanks for showing us how to love, Lil Wayne.
And the seemingly most popular couple of the night, besties Rihanna and Katy Perry. The two girls spent all night whispering to eachother, snickering at One Direction performances, and even talking each other up on stage. The night ended for the two when Rihanna won the outstanding “Video of the Year” award, but not without a smack on the behind from Katy. Can you say dynamic diva duo?
(Look closely, could Katy be singing lyrics of her popular song “I’m ‘Wide Awake‘” in Ri-Ri’s ear? No, maybe just whispering sweet nothings.)
Oh, and who was this wink too? Possibly Chris Brown who she hugged later in the night?
Guess we’ll never know..
It was certainly a night of surprises, performances, and rivalries at the 2012 VMAs.
