Mass Appeal Wire Reports
NEW YORK — If you missed Sunday night’s show, here’s all you need to know about the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards: Beyoncé slayed all opponents by winning ‘Video of the Year,’ Rihanna and Drake are apparently still in love, and Kanye West spent several minutes paying tribute to… himself. To say Beyoncé stole the VMAs would be a vast understatement. In addition to earning the night’s biggest honor, the 34-year-old ‘Formation’ singer dished out an extended performance for fans at New York’s Madison Square Garden inspired by her controversial “Lemonade” album.

Speaking of performance, Rihanna delivered a few memorable moments of her own prior to walking away with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The 28-year-old Barbadian beauty performed 4 career-spanning medleys of her hits before sauntering to the stage to accept the honor from Drake.
“This woman has surpassed all competition while still being the same girl from Barbados,” said Drake during an emotional speech. “We love the music which could change styles from album to album. We love the videos which change their artistic vision from year to year.”
“But most of all, we love the woman who hasn’t changed since day one.”
“She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old.”
Congrats Rihanna and Beyoncé!
