3 key moments you may have missed from the VMAs

With all the Miley furore, we forgot about the rest of the show.

YESTERDAY, THE WORLD was so consumed with Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s performance at the MTV VMAs that everything else that went on was somewhat overlooked.

It’s understandable, really.  We all needed at least 24 hours to process Mileygate.

However, there were some other key moments in the ceremony.

1.  Lady Gaga’s bum

Lady Gaga performance of her new single Applause included twelve costumes changes.

She began the performance like this:

And ended it in a shell bikini.

She kept the shell bikini on for the rest of the show, which meant that everyone got a good look at her arse.  Especially Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Janelle Monae who were sitting beside her.

2.  Macklemore performed with a message

American rapper Macklemore took home the award for Best Video with a Social Message for his song Same Love, which he also performed at the ceremony.

The song is about equality for people in same sex relationships and has been celebrated by LGBT rights activists across the globe for its message.
