MTV VMAs 2016: 5 reasons to watch

But let's be honest, the VMAs are more about jaw dropping moments than music videos and Moon Man trophies.

Whether it was Kanye West stealing the stage from Taylor Swift in the midst of her acceptance speech in 2009, or Miley Cyrus twerking her way into a national controversy in 2013, this annual award show is always unfiltered.

Here are five reasons to watch this year's VMAs.

Britney's back

Blue Ivy reminds everyone she is Hollywood's mini fashion queen with sequined headpiece

In arguably one of her best looks yet, pint-sized fashionista Blue Ivy Carter has emerged as the style star of Beyoncé's newly shared family photos.

Beyonce and Jay Z named world's highest-paid celebrity couple of 2016 according to Forbes

The sultry songstress pulled in $54 million, good enough to claim the No. 34 spot on our upcoming Celebrity 100 list—the annual ranking of the world’s top-earning superstars, which will be released tomorrow morning. Jay Z finished a smidgeon behind, taking the No. 36 slot with a $53.5 million tally.

Jay Z drops new song 'Spiritual' calling out police brutality: Don't Shoot

"Got my hands in the air in despair/don't shoot/I just wanna do good," he raps on the track.

The song, which was released on Tidal, was accompanied by a long open letter in which Jay Z said he began writing the song "awhile ago," and considered releasing it after the 2014 murder of Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri.

"I'm saddened and disappointed in this America," he wrote. "We should be further along. We are not. I trust God and know everything that happens is for our greatest good, but man ... it's tough right now."

Beyoncé stands against North Carolina's anti-trans law

A post on the 'Formation' singer's website entitled "Equality NC Works To Prove 'Y'all Means All'" praises those trying to repeal the ruling - officially called HB2.

The law bans trans people from using bathrooms that align with their gender identity, and was signed in by the state's Governor Pat McCrory in March.

Musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato previously cancelled shows in North Carolina over the bill, though Beyoncé​ went ahead with hers on Tuesday (May 3).

Beyoncé's Lemonade already heading for No.1 after only a day on sale

The singer has swooped into the number two position and is currently sitting between Prince's The Very Best Of at one and Prince's Ultimate at three.

Beyoncé premiered the visual album on TIDAL on Saturday before releasing it to iTunes yesterday (April 25). Lemonade will also be released on CD on May 6.

Unsurprisingly, the singer is already reigning over the iTunes chart.

Beyoncé's rival for number one this Friday, Prince, is currently flooding the charts after his death at the age of 57 on Thursday.

Beyoncé sings about cheating lover in new Lemonade album

The pop star debuted a new visual album, Lemonade, on HBO Saturday, and later released the songs on Tidal. The record includes several tracks about infidelity and other relationship issues, including the track "Sorry," in which she sings, "I see them boppers in the corner / They sneaking out the back door / He only want me when I'm not there / He better call Becky with the good hair."

Roy had reportedly spurred a confrontation between Beyoncé's husband Jay Z and her sister Solange Knowles in a hotel elevator in 2014. Leaked surveillance video of the incident went viral.

Amber Rose denies dissing Beyoncé in Kim Kardashian defense

The model-author-entrepreneur was simply pointing out that the singer isn't as harshly criticized as other women in the public eye—using the recent examples of herself and Kim Kardashian—and as Amber quickly clarified on Twitter, she chalks that up to "classism."

Beyoncé & Mariah Carey hang out together at Gala

The two recently hung out together at a gala held by the Heartview Global Foundation, a heart disease research group, in Los Angeles. Both showed major cleavage in gorgeous dresses. Bey, 34, wore a sleek ivory, caped number

and pearl drop earrings. Carey, 45, sported a semi-sheer, lace glittering gown, which she pared with a sparkling cuff and her massive diamond engagement ring.

"Two girls, one cause," Carey said on Instagram Thursday, alongside a photo of the two.
