1. The World Survives Yet Another VMA Ceremony With Only Minimal Carnage
MTV—a basic cable channel notable for featuring zero music videos—hosted its annual Video Music Awards ceremony again last night. And it was a big, big night! Miley Cyris did something. Iggy Azalea did something else. Nikki Minaj probably did something or other. And, of course, Beyoncé outdid everyone in the something department.
