MTV VMAs was a shocking event, for the wrong reasons

But by the time Madonna announced the video of the year victor on Monday night's MTV Video Music Awards, the two had been largely relegated to afterthoughts.

The 21-year-old singer won the award for Video of the Year for her song "Havana".

The "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker had been the night's most nominated artist with 12 nods, and she took home three prizes, Song of Summer for "I Like It", her collaboration with Bad Bunny and J. Balvin, Best Collaboration, which went to Jennifer Lopez's "Dinero", on which Cardi featured with DJ Khaled, and Best New Artist. Last night at the MTV Video Music Awards, he took this a step further, teaming up with Aerosmith (who are no strangers to working with rappers ala Run DMC) to close out the show in a wild collaborative performance.

"My life is sweeter and better with you in it", she said.

"Madonna, I love you so, so much", she said, a moment after admitting her hands were shaking.

"Just to clarify: I was asked to present video of the year by MTV!", she wrote.

In photos shared on social media on Saturday, Chopra and Jonas were seen performing the rituals in traditional Indian attires. First I'm blessed with an incredible future brother-in-law, and now such an lovely , inside and out, future sister-in-law".

"I'm so happy to receive this award", Cardi said while accepting her Moon Person statuette. I did not intend to do a tribute to her!

She then waved to the group down the camera as they weren't at the awards. "I knew I had to go higher, I had to be stronger than I had been before".

Neither Mars, Drake, Gambino, Beyonce nor Jay-Z attended the awards show in New York City, which featured performances by Ariana Grande - who won best pop video for "No Tears Left to Cry", - Nicki Minaj, Aerosmith, Shawn Mendes and Travis Scott.

She also felt uncomfortable leaving her newborn daughter for that long after doctors told her that there's no way the tiny tot can join her on the tour bus or fly.

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

Because every single one was so good - and we don't expect anything less from the superstar - we're breaking down all of her show-stopping ensembles from her red carpet arrival to the custom Versace pieces she shook her famous booty in.
