So i just want to say…WOW to the 2016 MTV Awards it was urban overload and amazing!!!! I was very satisfied with the accuracy of who topped the charts and received their awards for it. Rihanna was the guest of honor because she was receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award last night. Now, for those who don’t know what that is, its a Lifetime Achievement Award that is given to musicians who made a profound impact on MTV and pop culture. This is based on their body of work throughout the years.
Lets talk about some of these looks from the night….
Beyonce arrived with her beautiful daughter wearing Francesco Scognamiglo, Fall Couture 2016 gown.
Here is Beyonce’ with the whole “Lemonade” cast.

BEYONCE’ also shut the house down with her 16 min long ‘LEMONADE’ performance that was well worth staying up for to snatch every single hair off of my body.

Drake was the presenter for Rihanna’s Vanguard award last night. He gave a touching speech where he acknowledged Rihanna as someone who he looked up to and also referring to her as his best friend. Drake also confessed that he’s been in love with Rihanna since she was 22.
Drake tried to give Rih the “I’m proud of you my love” kiss but she curved it like a stretch of road lol.
