The MTV Video Music Awards (VMA), which took place last Sunday, 12, in New York, United States, stirred up social networks. This was the first edition of VMA post-pandemic that had the presence of fans, making the musical performances even warmer. THE MTV promised surprises and one of them was right at the opening of the awards, which featured an introduction by the singer Madonna. In her speech, the pop diva compared her trajectory in music with the growth of the revolutionary music channel that is completing 40 years. The opening concert was in charge of the singer Justin Bieber, which won the Artist of the Year and Best Pop Clip categories for Peaches. In his performance, he first sang Stay with The Kid LAROI and, to the delight of the fans, amended with the song Ghost, from the album “Justice”.

Anitta was present at the event and her performance at the VMA has already made history, because the singer became the first Brazilian to perform at the awards. With images of Rio de Janeiro in the background, the powerful one rocked on social networks when singing Girl From Rio.

The VMA 2021 also marked the debut of Olivia rodrigo at the awards, which drove the audience crazy by singing the hit good 4 u. The actress and singer, who at 18 is already a worldwide phenomenon, left the VMA as one of the most awarded artists of the night – taking home three awards, as well as Lil Nas X and the group BTS. In addition, she became the fifth youngest artist to win the “Breakthrough Artist” category. However, Olivia also shared opinions and ended up in the most talked about topics on Twitter for winning the “Song of the Year” category with drivers license, as many people believe that the award should be from Bruno Mars by Leave The Door Open. The star’s live performance of “High School Musical: The Series: The Musical” was also something of criticism on social media.

fight on the red carpet

Who was also successful at the awards was the actress Megan Fox for appearing on the red carpet with a look all worked on transparency – which made her silver lingerie apparent. She was accompanied by her boyfriend, the singer Machine Gun Kelly, who also became the subject of a fight with the UFC champion Conor McGregor on the red carpet at the awards. The video in which they go into a fight and the fighter tries to punch the rapper quickly went viral on social media. They were separated by several security guards who quickly approached and Megan Fox was the one who pulled her boyfriend out of the mess. None of those involved wanted to clarify what motivated the fight, but according to the TMZ, McGregor asked to take a photo with Machine and singer refused. The fighter denied this version. “I don’t even know the guy. I don’t know anything about him, except that he’s with Megan Fox,” he told Entertainment Tonight. Machine, when asked about the matter by Variety, tapped the reporter’s microphone and left without replying.
