Last night (August 27) was the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards and a memorable night it was.
On the music side of things, we saw shut down performances from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Katy Perry + Nicki Minaj, Fifth Harmony, Ed Sheeran and more. Kendrick cleaned up with six wins, Katy Perry kept the energy going as host, and we had many presenters and performers take a stand against white supremacists and the hateful people in this country.
One of the best moments of the night, however, came towards the end of the show when legendary pop star P!nk was awarded with the iconic Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award.
Presented by Ellen DeGeneres, P!nk used her speech to tell a heartwarming story of an important conversation she had with her 6-year old daughter, Willow, where she reminded her that self-love is the most important thing ever and that she is beautiful no matter what she looks like.
We need more celebrities like P!nk in this industry.
