The annual MTV Video Music Awards took place last night (Sept. 12) and the show did not disappoint! As one of the most anticipated award ceremonies of the year with guests ranging from Nicki Minaj to LL Cool J and Global Icon Award winner Sean “Diddy” Combs, there was no shortage of stars present. The festivities went down at the Prudential Center in New Jersey and the guests took to this year’s pink carpet to flaunt their looks before heading inside to enjoy a night full of historic moments.
