Alessia Cara Opens The 2016 MTV VMAs With A Killer Performance

By Joanna Adams

Alessia Cara found her inner wild thing on stage at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show in New York City on Sunday, but only after she emerged from a cloud of smoke.

The 20-year-old native of Brampton, Ont. was the first performer of the night, and got the VMA pre-party started by walking up and out of a smoky subway stop on 34th Street, right by Penn Station.

Cara — whose voice has a husky, raspy quality — appeared to embrace this creative parallel and kicked off her three-song medley with “Wild Things.”

The hit was nominated for best pop video at the VMAs, putting Cara in a category with Adele, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, and fellow Canadian, Justin Bieber. Naturally, this gave her all the more reason to celebrate on stage while dressed in a Gucci camouflage jacket with pink rose details, grey skinny jeans with black side panels and her signature sneakers.

Can’t think of a better way to kick off the #VMA pre-show than with @alessiacara + @troyesivan, can you? https://t.co/ShcO1PzrUn

Britney Spears Returns To The VMAs In Racy Versace Dress

By Monika Markovinovic

It’s only right that we start this post by saying this: it’s Britney, b*tch.

Britney Spears is finally back at the MTV Video Music Awards in all her “Glory” (yes, that’s the name of her ninth album which dropped this past Friday) and she, quite frankly, looked amazing.

Slaying in a little black dress, BritBrit donned a one-shoulder, skin-tight Versace number for the award show which took place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Flaunting major skin, the 34-year-old looked effortlessly chic with nude makeup and tousled tresses.

She also walked the carpet with G-Easy, who she has collaborated with on her album. He also showed skin.

And before taking the red carpet, Britney made it clear she was “so ready for this night.”

So ready for this night ✨ #VMAs

By Monika Markovinovic

What can we say? Like mother, like daughter!

Queen of everything, Beyoncé, had the Internet screaming on Sunday evening when she blessed us all and brought her daughter Blue Ivy Carter onto the 2016 MTV VMAs red carpet.

And believe us when we say everyone on Twitter couldn’t handle the royal mother-daughter duo.

Queen B floated like an angel on the red carpet wearing a 2016 Francesco Scognamiglio couture naked dress. Glittering in crystal embellishment from head to toe, the 34-year-old international pop star channelled some type of worldly creature donning a blue feather neck piece and emerald drop earrings.
