The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards Was held at the Radio City Music Hall on Monday (August 20) in New York City.
49-year-old entertainer Jennifer Lopez was the Video Vanguard Award winner this year. After thanking her team and family, JLo gave her gratitude to boyfriend Alex Rodriguez:
And Alex. You’re like my twin soul. We’re like mirror images of each other. My life is sweeter and better with you in it because you make me realize that every day the sky is not the limit — the universe is infinite, and so is what we can accomplish together with love and trust and understanding. There’s so much more to do — to experience — and there is no one I’d rather do it with. You’re my macho baby and I love you.
There were also several winners across all genres of music.
The biggest winners of the night were Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and Best Collaboration recipient Jennifer Lopez, Childish Gambino and Cardi B (who won three awards apiece) and Camila Cabello who was not only awarded Artist Of The Year but also Video Of The Year
