Madonna honours Aretha Franklin at MTV VMAs, draws major backlash

Cardi B Blasts The Haters While Accepting The VMA For Best New Artist

MTV VMA Awards 2018: Live blog of winners, performers and snubs at the MTV Video Music Awards tonight

Congratulations are in order for Cardi B for winning the award for Best New Artist at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. But the feisty "Bodak Yellow" singer failed to make good on her leading 10 nominations going into the show as fans spread their votes far and wide. And Lopez started off slow - Kylie Jenner and Scott's unamused faces perfectly captured the vibe - but hit a strong stride when she sang old smashes like "Jenny from the Block" and "I'm Real" - where Ja Rule joined her onstage - and "All I Have", which showed the skilled dancer's vocal range.

Camila and her mom, Sinuhe Cabello, were seen totally jamming out in the audience to basically every performance, and it was so adorable.

"I left Detroit when I was 18", she said.

Of course, the VMAs have always been about "moments" as much as awards themselves, and, as was the case a year ago, these didn't offer a flashpoint like Miley Cyrus twerking or Kanye West barging into a Taylor Swift speech with the immortal words, "I'ma let you finish". "And just to clarify: I was asked to present video of the year by MTV!". She said, "I knew I had to be better".

She took the Radio City Music Hall stage during the second half of the Monday show for what appeared to be the night's big tribute to Franklin, but her speech appeared to be more about Madonna than the soul singer, who died late last week. "She led me where I am today".

She then waved to the group down the camera as they weren't at the awards.

Nicki Minaj rehearses for the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. "I don't know what I said, I don't know what came over me".

She said: "I'm so happy to receive this award".

We are like mirror images of each other.

She hit back at the comedian, jumping to the defence of Normani - another member of the band.

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro said Tuesday morning on Fox News that Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti could be a legitimate 2020 presidential contender "because he fires up the base and the only thing that unifies the Democrats right now is hatred of the president".
