Rihanna and Drake Head Out to Celebrate After the MTV VMAs

Below are some of the best memes and reactions to the whole incident. "She's a living, breathing legend in our industry, ladies and gentleman, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for 2016, Rihanna".

Jimmy Fallon, who presented video of the year, dressed as Ryan Lochte and even sported the platinum blonde hair. During 2014's On the Run World Tour, she donned a veil to top a white, wide-legged jumpsuit with lace insets for her performance of "Resentment". She grew angry and twerked while performing "Don't Hurt Yourself" and ended with the anthemic "Formation". "God bless you guys", Beyoncé told the gala at New York's Madison Square Garden.

But it was Beyonce who proved once again she is the contemporary rock star, and she used the VMA stage to showcase her skills, outshining both Spears and Rihanna.

Once the set had finished, Britney threw her arms around her 27-year-old rapper before planting a kiss on his cheek.

Seven of her nominations, including Video of the Year, are for the track, which she released last year (15) after a three-year hiatus, while her eighth nomination is in the Best Visual Effects category.

"When I think about the Video Vanguard Award and receiving this tonight, all I can think of is my country", the 29-year-old singer-turned-actress and entrepreneur said. All his adult life he's looked up to her, even though she's younger than him.

Rihanna was born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, in Saint Michael Barbados to a Barbados-born father and a Guyana-born mother.

She also noted that while her success "started as my dream", now "it is not my own".

Another major moment of the night was Britney Spears.

Prior to that she hit the headlines in 2003 when she famously locked lips with Madonna during her surprise performance with her former rival Christina Aguilera. She then made everyone's jaw drop when she performed with G-Eazy.

In typical and true Kanye West fashion, the rapper ranted onstage, touching on subjects from music to his beef with Taylor Swift to violence in his hometown Chicago before he debuted his music video for "Fade". Grande cycled while singing and was backed by female dancers imitating her, while her male dancers lifted dumbbells and did other exercises.

The "Toxic" singer admitted earlier this week she was nervous to make her return to the VMAs after a much-criticized last appearance in 2007.

"Here's an excerpt from the Page Six item that first fueled speculation about a budding romance between Drake and Rihanna: "'She was drinking whiskey and apple juice and making out with him all night, ' says a spy.

"I am Kanye West and that feels really great especially to say this year".
