The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards went down last night at the Barclays Center and there were a few standout moments.
Ahead of the show, fans were anticipating performances from the biggest rising stars in music, including Chloe Bailey (who’s going as just Chloe now), Lil Nas X, and Normani. All three came out and spiced the show up with their respective performances of “Have Mercy,” “Wild Side,” and “Montero.” Lil Nas X showed up for the LGBTQ+ community in the trillest way onstage and even won ‘Video of the Year;’ Chloe made her onstage solo debut and put her infamous backside on full display for the world to enjoy; and Normani ended her flawless performance with a steamy 1-on-1 Teyana Taylor dance session. The night’s performances were pretty much perfect (although very yt for the most part).
Over on the red carpet Hailey Bailey, Megan Fox, and Ashanti had everyone talking. Megan came through with her man MGK and simply put, they both looked GOOD. Ashanti is aging like fine wine, inspiring thirst throughout the nation, and Hailey spiced things up in a cut-out, floor length gown that showed off the girls.
One off-stage moment that has also had everyone talking is the near-fight between Conor McGregor and MGK.
“A source close to Conor tells us the fighter wanted to say hello to MGK, stuck his hand out and started walking up to the singer,” TMZ reports. “We’re told MGK said something — that Conor couldn’t hear — and MGK’s security pushed Conor away. Our source says Conor doesn’t understand what the issue was, and was surprised by how he was treated.”
