The 2018 MTV Video Awards are officially a wrap. Held at New York’s Radio City Music Hall Monday night (Aug. 20), the star-studded evening took over both the digital streets and Manhattan’s 6th Avenue.
Known as a night where stars are born and memories made, fans and attendees were locked and loaded from their Twitter accounts, ready to sound-off on the night’s most tweet-worthy moments.
While the night shone dimmer than in years past (says VIBE’s Twitter feed), between J.Lo and Ja Rule taking us back to 2001, Logic’s powerful performance, Travis Scott’s trip to Astroworld and Madonna’s Aretha Franklin “tribute,” viewers flooded the blogs with hot takes, perfect memes, and quality comedy.
Take a look below.
