The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) transformed the streets of Brooklyn with red carpet and bright movie lights. Instead of walking down a traditional red carpet at the event facility, celebs actually hit the streets of Brooklyn to showcase their style. Lady GaGa’s ability to transform her looks and her body is amazing, Miley Cyrus on the other hand, will regret the year 2013 five years from now, and Katy “Ratchet Perry” showed off her multicolor kitty grill. Fashion wise, Rihanna’s very casual look is probably my favorite of the night. Sometimes less is more…

Going to the BET Awards sounds like a lot of fun, and it certainly can be, but it’s also a lot of work and hustle. So many names to remember, and so many questions to ask, but we wouldn’t trade it for the world. Here are the last of the photos from our weekend in Los Angeles thanks to our own Jessica Williams. We actually have some pretty cool moments like Gabrielle Union photo-bombing Lauren London, Robin Thicke saying Hey Mya! (who is reportedly engaged), the Oh! so sexy Jay Ellis of The Game, Wiz Khlifa with hot pink lips on his cheeks, India.Arie giving someone a mean side-eye, and Meagan Good and dem beautiful boobs.
And lots, and lots, more pics when you continue…
I don’t know if all the stress from false allegations are getting to Chris Brown, the break-up from Rihanna, or if it’s something else. But we caught a glimpse of Chris Brown backstage at the BET Awards without his jacket, and his frame is so thin. I don’t know what he’s going through, but it’s starting to show physically.
Make that money Breezy, but don’t let that money make you…I’m sure Rihanna twerking to Drake lyrics doesn’t help the situation, either:

One of the biggest fashion events of who’s who in celebrity is the MET Gala by Anna Wintour. This year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit is Punk: Chaos to Couture. Judging by the theme, I would say J-Lo and that hair (pompadour faux hawk) kills it on the red carpet, and Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacobs impresses. Here are a few of the red carpet looks from some of our favorite celebs:
SIDE NOTE: Kim Kardashian finally walks the red carpet at the MET Gala this year, thanks to her boyfriend Kanye West, who seems to be falling back in love with his woman. Kanye West performs a song dedicated to Kim and her awesomeness. Although Kim Kardashian strays from the PUNK theme, she looks very glamorous and maternal in all floral. More pics when you continue…
