Best and Worst: 2012 MTV VMAs with Taylor Swift, Frank Ocean, One Direction
How did Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Kevin Hart, the 'Breaking Dawn' cast fare?
Best: Young Money love
The Young Money crew came away with a couple of major awards this evening - Best Female Video for Nicki Minaj's "Starships" and Best Hip-Hop Video for Drake/Lil Wayne's "HYFR" - and it was fun to see Minaj, Drake and Wayne all storming the stage together in solidarity during the win for the latter clip. In the uber-competitive world of hip-hop (not to mention music in general), it's nice when artists actually come together to support each other in a way that feels genuine.
