2016 #VMA (Rih)cap

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.

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.
