Beyonce VMA EV

Last nights VMA’s belonged to the Queen B herself as she picked up an impressive four moon men at this years MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.

Beyoncé won in categories including Best Collaboration (‘Drunk in Love’), Best Video with a Social Message (‘Pretty Hurts’), Best Cinematography (awarded to Photographers Darren Lew and Jackson Hunt for ‘Pretty Hurts’) and most importantly she was this years recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

This now takes her VMA tally to an impressive 18 wins, which now ranks her second (behind Madonna, who has 20!) as the artist with the most VMA wins in history.

The prestigious Video of the Year was awarded to ‘Wrecking Ball‘ by Miley Cyrus, which comes as no surprise given the amount of publicity and controversy the visual received when released nearly a year ago.

In a touching move she chose to focus on the issue of homeless youths in America by having her date for the evening Jesse (who is currently a homeless teen in Los Angeles) accept the award on her behalf.

Katy Perry was a surprise winner (in my mind) for Best Female Video. ‘Dark Horse‘ beat out strong competition including Beyoncé, Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande and Lorde.

Meanwhile Ed Sheeran flew the flag for the Brits and collected the Best Male Video for ‘Sing‘ alongside Pharrell Williams.

Best Pop Video was awarded to Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea for ‘Problem‘, whereas Drake’s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home‘ collected the Best Hip-Hop Video prize.

X Factor USA alumni Fifth Harmony were also shocked to win the Artist to Watch award, seeing as the fought of strong competition (and fan bases) including 5 Seconds of Summer, Sam Smith, Charlie XCX and Schoolboy Q.
