From Gwen's blue double-knots and face jewelry to Lady Gaga's meat dress, the VMAs have always served as the award show for celebs to make a serious statement (and perhaps cause some controversy) on the red carpet. If award shows were a family, the VMAs would be the rebellious, tatted-up, glitter eyeshadow-wearing younger sister with a penchant for saying outrageous things just for shock value. This year was no different, with celebrities like Miley Cyrus (who is hosting the event and sure to say something outrageous herself some time throughout the night, if her ensemble is any hint of whats to come) and Nicki Minaj showing up in their full-blown glittery glory. And, in case you were wondering, yes, Taylor Swift showed up with not one, but nine smoking hot dates. #Squadpower.
