The MTV VMAs . . . Highlights and Memorable Moments
For the second straight year, MILEY CYRUS tried to steal the show at the MTV Video Music Awards. But it was for a VERY different reason this time.
Miley's "Wrecking Ball" won Video of the Year, but instead of taking the stage, she sent up a young guy named Jesse, who revealed that he's HOMELESS.
He accepted the award for the, quote, "1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now."
He also directed people to Miley's Facebook page, where she's asking people to donate to My Friend's Place, a homeless center for young people in Hollywood.
Meanwhile, on the total opposite end of the social consciousness spectrum, we have the Kardashians. Specifically, KIM KARDASHIAN and KENDALL and KYLIE JENNER . . .
Who appeared to be TEXTING while COMMON was talking about Ferguson, Missouri and asking for a moment of silence.
Other than that, the show was pretty unremarkable. A lot of people thought NICKI MINAJ was going to bring the raunch when she did"Anaconda", but aside from a little twerking, it wasn't that bad. Especially compared to Miley's antics last year.
Nicki did have a wardrobe malfunction when she did a quick change and came back out to do her verse on "Bang Bang" with JESSIE J and ARIANA GRANDE.
For some reason, the front of her outfit wouldn't stay closed, so she had to hold it together with her hands.
BEYONCÉ closed the show by accepting the Video Vanguard Award. And she accepted it from JAY Z, who took the stage with their daughter BLUE IVY after Beyoncé did a 16-minute medley of songs from her latest album.
In a "we're-so-not-getting-divorced" show of support, Jay even called his wife, quote, "the greatest living entertainer."
Beyoncé also won Best Video with a Social Message for "Pretty Hurts", and Best Collaboration for "Drunk in Love" with her husband Jay-Z. But those weren't announced during the broadcast.
Here are the rest of the big winners:
Video of the Year: Miley Cyrus, "Wrecking Ball"

Gwyneth Paltrow is "Very Happy" for Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence
GWYNETH PALTROW isn't bitter or jealous that CHRIS MARTIN has hooked up with JENNIFER LAWRENCE.
A so-called "source" says, quote, "She's very happy for Chris, that he has moved on and found someone else. Their split has been remarkably amiable and they both just want the best for one another."
Besides, Gwyneth has moved on herself. She's reportedly nailing "Glee" co-creator BRAD FALCHUK.
