Awards


The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards are over, but while all eyes were on the main show and artists such as Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Usher, there were a few moments backstage that had social media buzzing. Right before going into a commercial break, cameras backstage caught Ariana Grande and Big Sean holding hands walking down a hallway. Leading up to Sunday night, rumors have been swirling about the G.O.O.D. Music rapper and pop singer being an item.

Another moment that had viewers talking happened after during the after show. As Nicki Minaj was being interviewed by MTV News’ Rob Markman, Iggy Azalea came over to congratulate Nicki on her performances. “You did great,” Azalea said to the Queen Barbz, as Minaj smiled and replied “Thank you baby.”

Nicki Minaj is the latest act to be added to the lineup for this year’s MTV VMAs, taking place August 24 at The Forum in Inglewood, California. The Young Money Queen is set to perform her new single, “Anaconda,” and if it’s anything like her recently-shot video, it’s sure to be a performance to remember.

Nicki joins a star-studded bill that includes Usher, Ariana Grande and Beyoncé, which already has the Internet speculating about a possible “Flawless (Remix)” duet. That would pretty much turn the 2014 VMAs into the Mrs. Carter show as Bey not only leads all artists with eight nominations, but is set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Oh, and she’ll be hitting the stage for her own solo set, too.

Chris Rock may have taken a step back from stand-up recently, but his opening monologue at last night’s 2014 BET Awards proves that he’s still got it, and needs to get back up on the stage stat. Before Pharrell and Missy Elliott had the audience on their feet dancing, Chris had us all in stitches by roasting everyone from Kevin Hart and Donald Sterling to Jay Z and Rick Ross. We’re sorry, Hov, but this was too good not to tweet:
