   The MTV Video Music Award are presented by Music Television (MTV) to honor the best music videos of the year, but why are YouTubers at the VMA’s?  Why are these outfits so trashy and some so classy? It’s been 10 years since the Kayne West and Taylor Swift incident at the 2009 VMAs where West decided to come up to the stage and interrupt Swift’s award.

     Tana Mongeau, is an YouTube star married to Jake Paul,Youtube star, Mongeau previously dated Bella Thorne, actress/singer. She was in a scandal with Paul about their wedding, which was totally fake! The only reason why Mongeau was in the VMA’s because of her MTV show Tana Turns 21. This outfit mimics Britney Spears 2001 VMAs. Mongeau got a lot of blacklash for wearing a live snake as an accessory.

   “She looks like she bought it from Office Depot…is that tinfoil!?” said Robert Smith, PVHS 9th Grader.

   James Charles has had a lot of sister scandals this year; Tati, exposing his nudes on twitter, also suing AT&T and Wet ‘n Wild. His VMA outfit… I don’t even know what it is?

  “It looks too flashy. He could wore something better than that,” said Gregory Cabrera, PVHS 9th Grader. Now Charles is most famously known as a beauty guru on youtube and even releasing his own makeup palette and has some pretty good outfits, but this one is a nope!

   Lil Nas X, singer,  wrote and sang “Old Town Road” and it was hit, remixing it with Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug, and Mason Ramsey.  Nas X went with the metallic cowboy with shiny silver boots. “He looks like tinfoil, but usually he has good outfits!”said Faith Theoret, PVHS 11th Grader. 

   Lizzo, singer of Truth Hurts and played a character in UglyDolls. She wore a red sequin dress with silver sequin letters saying “Siren” with a feather read boa. “I really like the red boa. It adds a nice detail to the outfit!” said Dayanara Guerrero, PVHS 9th Grader.

   Heidi Klum, supermodel, wore a Nedo all black dress, “It looks like she’s wearing a glittery trash bag!” said Alexander Baer, PVHS 9th Grader. Klum could have went with something better than that. She recently married Tom Kaulitz , this her 3rd marriage after getting a divorece in 2014 with Seal.

   Nikita Dragun is an transgender makeup artist and a beauty guru. She has gotten backlash for putting a black man on a leash. “It’s weird. The boys look like their on leashes, like dogs,” said Makinlee Wallace, PVHS 11th Grader.

   Taylor Swift, the successful music artist and the winner at the VMA’s, wore a Versace Tuxedo colorful top and long black suede boots. “Taylor Swift’s outfit makes her look like a ringmaster and clown mixed together,” said Veronica Dela Rosa, PVHS 11th Grader.

It’s been 10 years since the Kayne West and Swift incident. In the wise words West “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you. I’ma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time!”  As a 19 year old Swift stood in shock and Beyoncé’s jaw dropped in shock after West’s statement.

Well, I guess you could say this years VMA’s has been a total shock! Trashy yet classy outfits! Can’t wait to see next year’s crazy outfits.
