Video And Pictures After The Jump
The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards took place last night. There was plenty of excitement as Pink. Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys and more took the stage to perform.
A$AP Rocky got cocky during his performance of "Cockiness (I Love It)" with Rihanna when he grabbed the singer's butt. Riri pushed him away and then segued into her hit song "We Found Love."
There was also a reunion between Rihanna and her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown as the two shared a brief kiss and hug as Riri made her way to her seat.
Brown was a big winner on the night as he took home two Moonmen, including one for Best Male Video. M.I.A. also won two awards for her video "Bad Girls."
The two happiest people at the show might have been Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose. The couple confirmed rumors that Amber was pregnant with their first child during an interview with Sway on the red capet.
