MTV VMA 2017 Highlights! Cardi B Performs, Full List of Winners and More! [WATCH]


I have to admit, I was NOT watching the MTV Video Music Awards because Game of Thrones held me hostage and wouldn't let me go but, I did catch the highlights and figured I'd share! The entire night seemed wonderful with some of my favorite performers and some of my favorite people. Kendrick Lamar made out like a fat rat taking home a whopping NINE awards for his single "Humble".

Paris Jackson, Michael Jackson's daughter, gave a speech that called out racism and I'm completely here for this youngin' using her privilege to call out those who wish ill on others. Catch a snippet of her speech (peep the guy who doesn't clap) then enjoy the performances!

Cardi B!

Kendrick Lamar

Khalid
