Red Carpet Fashion

The VMAs, better known as music’s “most unexpected night,” brings not only crazy performances, but also crazy fashion! This year’s guest list is probably one of the better ones we’ve seen in awhile, so we can’t wait to see what people will be arriving in before they take their seats at the Microsoft Theater. Maybe someone will recreate Lady Gaga’s meat dress from 2010?


Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” Music Video Debut

Taylor Swift is taking the spotlight away from Nick Jonas this year with the world premiere of the music video for her new single “Wildest Dreams.” Nick Jonas will also be debuting his new single “Levels” to fans in the audience and viewers at home, but let’s face it… we’re all waiting to see Taylor’s track come to life and how sexy Scott Eastwood is going to look in this video.

Miley Cyrus

Do we need to say anymore? Miley Cyrus has been known for causing a raucous at the VMAs ever since her performance with Robin Thicke in 2013. Miley is ready to make VMA history once again by hosting the show for the first time-ever. From her outfits to her tongue, we can’t wait to see what Miley has in store for us tonight!

VMA Performers


Have you seen that lineup of performers this year? The Weeknd is performing “Cant’ Feel My Face” for the first time LIVE on national television, Demi Lovato is letting us know she’s here to stay with an epic performance of “Cool For the Summer,” Justin Bieber and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are making their triumphant returns to the music industry with the debut of their new singles and Tori Kelly is hitting the VMA stage for the first time ever. Nicki Minaj will be for sure turning heads with her performance, and Twenty One Pilots will blow our minds with a one-of-a-kind performance with A$AP Rocky. If that’s not all, Pharrell is also slated to take the stage along with Video Vanguard Award winner Kayne West. OH. MY. GOD.
