2012 VMA winners list

The annual MTV VMAs took place at the Staples Center in LA last night. Unfortunately we didn’t have a live stream in South Africa, but if you were able to watch the awards in your part of the world, let us know what the show was like. I hear Rihanna’s performance was superb and a great way to open the show. She performed her song Cockiness alongside A$AP Rocky. Taylor apparently closed the show with her hit, “We Are Never Getting Back Together”, which by that point everyone was like uh, whatevs Taylor imma drink myself stupor… Na’mean ūüėČ Ha!
