2016 MTV Video Music Awards

VMA 2016
I can tell this year’s MTV VMAs is going to fun even before the first note has been¬†sung Drake is showing us how extra the 2016 show will be.

The 2016 MTV Video Music Awards will be held on August 28, 2016 at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, NY. ¬† This will be a star studded event. ¬†We start the night knowing that Beyonce¬†led the nominations with a total of eleven. ¬†Adele’s “Hello” is the most nominated video. ¬†Rihanna is set to receive the Vanguard Award. ¬†¬†Kanye West will be given 4 minutes¬†to speak uninterrupted at this ceremony.¬† Fresh off her¬†Carpool Karaoke¬†appearance Britney Spears is slated to preform.

Madonna MTV VMA MOONMAN

VMA trophy history tells us that three ideas were submitted.  A sneaker, a container of popcorn (now the MTV Movie Award) and the now convented Moonman.  Modonna is the artist with most VMA Moonmen.

My snapchat friends were the first to know about the location I selected for my blog’s 3rd year anniversary brunch that happened on June 12th. They saw first hand my Beyonce’s Formation tour experience, and my NYC trip for theCurvycon.  I was in L.A. in August for BlogHer & some fun in the sun.  Then off to ATL for TCFStyleExpo.  Followed up by trip to Florida for the Black Enterprise Golf Tennis Challenge.  Be sure to follow me on snapchat so you don’t miss any of the action.  thefatgirloffashion.com can be found on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter also.
