So the BeyMAs….I mean the VMAs went down last night lol.  There were some pretty special moments during the 31st annual show as music’s hottest stars flocked to the The Forum in Inglewood, California.

Comedian Jay Pharoah served as the show’s faux host appearing on stage between a few performances. His Jay-Z and Kanye West impersonations didn’t seem to be received to well by the masses, but the show’s first performance was. Pop princess Ariana Grande

Michael Brown Autopsy

In the midst of the imposed curfew and more unsettling activity in Ferguson stemming from shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, the preliminary autopsy of the teenager’s body was released as well as the name of the officer who killed him. The officer who has been identified as Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown a total of six times according to the autopsy performed by former chief medical examiner for the City of New York,  Dr. Michael M. Baden. Dr. Baden, who flew in yesterday to conduct a separate autopsy at the request of Brown’s family says that two of the shots were to Brown’s head, one of which entered the top of his skull and was likely the final and fatal shot.  The other four shots were in the victim’s right arm. Attorney Generals Eric H. Holder, Jr. confirmed that the Justice Department would conduct it’s own autopsy in addition to the ones conducted by local officials and the family due to “the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family.”

The 14th Annual BET Awards went down last night and there was no shortage of major moments. From old school flashbacks and tributes to tearful firsts for the new class this year was one of the best for the annual awards show.

Comedian Chris Rock hosted this year’s show and I am glad he did lol. He seemed fearless as he went in on this past year’s moments and he never let up. He even made fun of the elevator fiasco between Jay Z

After a six month engagement, rapper/actress Eve married her  billionaire boyfriend Mazmillion Cooper in Ibiza, Spain after the 2014 Gumball 3000 Rally. The couple met at the 2010 rally so getting married after this year’s rally made all the sense in the world. 

“We met on the 2010 Gumball 3000 rally so it only seemed right to have the wedding at the finish of this years rally in Ibiza, which was the final stop on this years event,” he told E! Magazine. “We couldn’t be happier to celebrate such a special day with all our family and friends.”

It looks like August Alsina is continuing to make a name for himself as a bad boy in the entertainment industry with his tantrums. During a recent concert in Arkansas, August moved through the audience on his bodyguard’s shoulders then commenced to “surf” though the crowd. During his interaction with the concert goers his hat either fell off or was removed from his head which left a sour taste in the singer’s mouth that he had no problem sharing with everyone in attendance.
