Did you miss last night’s MTV Video Music Awards? You’re not alone. I generally purposely try to miss the broadcast, but for whatever reason, I actually tuned in this year – via torrent, of course, which means I got to skip over the seemingly endless ad breaks. Here are the 10 moments that people are talking about/will make you seem totally “on it” around the water cooler at work.
Beyoncé. Everything Beyoncé.
Beyoncé was given the Video Vanguard Award after giving an incredible performance of a medley of pretty much every single song on the self-titled album. I know I get a bit Beyoncé-d out sometimes, but you can’t deny she’s an incredibly accomplished performer and that award was extremely well-deserved. Jay-Z bringing little Blue Ivy up on stage to hand her the statue at the end was the extra cherry on top. SO CUTE.
Miley Cyrus got a homeless man to accept her award.
Miley Cyrus won Video of the Year, but instead of accepting the award herself, she sent a homeless man from the area on stage to represent the homeless community in Los Angeles and bring awareness to the cause. Miley was in tears the whole time he was speaking, but I can’t tell if this was genuine or some weird hacky PR move. I’m feeling optimistic today, so I’ll go with the former.

Miley Cyrus was planning on taking her Bangerz tour over to the Dominican Republic, but it turns out the city of Santo Domingo doesn’t want her there and have banned the show from happening.
From The Buenos Aires Herald:
Through a letter delivered to the companies in charge of the event, the local government argued Cyrus performances “go against the country’s moral and customs.”
According to the commission, the singer also “performs with unsuitable costumes,” and uses “language and images which encourage sex and violence.”
In addition, they accused Cyrus of “apology for crime, violence and denigrating acts before civilized culture, incitement for sex, lesbian sex, and use of inappropriate objects in public.”
The show was supposed to take place at Quisqueya Stadium, in the country’s capital of Santo Domingo.
Well, damn. I guess some people aren’t ready for the twerk.

Can someone please stop Miley Cyrus from adopting/buying/whatever-she’s-doing-to-get-them new animals? Seriously, this is getting a little ridiculous. She’s now moved on from getting dog after dog and is the proud owner of a new piglet named Bubba Sue. Yeah, this is going to end well. Poor animal.
Miley began posting selfies with Bubba Sue over the weekend, and I have to admit, the pig is ADORABLE. Of course, she won’t keep it for too long – it’ll either end up dead like several of her dogs mysteriously have done or she’ll abandon it and give it away when it gets bigger and is no longer cute enough to post on Instagram. It’s messed up and completely ridiculous. As if a 20-year-old on a world tour who is obsessed with partying and shit is going to properly take care of an animal that has no business being kept as a pet on buses and planes? Money really can buy you anything, it seems. I just hope Bubba Sue makes it out alive.
