In the not-too-distant past, fall wasn’t only for back to school — it was also the time when all the record companies readied their major releases with the hopes that they would land on the charts and on consumers’ holiday shopping lists. Of course, the advent of streaming services has changed the music business dramatically in recent years, but as a wise man recently said, streaming is for the rest of the year; the holidays are when physical products sell — or so the record companies hope.
A lot of the fun that goes down at the MTV Video Music Awards happens when the cameras aren’t rolling… but those moments usually end up on Instagram, anyways. Take a look at the best pics celebs shared of their fun at the show.

Let’s be real: When it comes to the MTV Video Music Awards, it’s never about who wins or loses.

What are the craziest incidents in VMA history? Review them here and decide for yourself.
Morrissey’s last album, 2014’s ”World Peace Is None of Your Business,” was a stark reminder of how scathing and clever his lyrics have been over the years.

You’re all set for the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. You know that Katy Perry is hosting and that Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with eight nominations. You even heard that they’re changing the name of the Moonman to the Moonperson . Even so, a few questions still nag at you. Let’s put those questions to rest.
The MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist has been around since the first annual VMAs in 1984. However, despite years of practice, voters still frequently go a little crazy and allow a one-hit wonder to sneak away with the trophy that could (and probably should) have been won by the likes of Whitney Houston, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift. Hindsight is 20/20, right? But don’t worry about these “losers”; they went on to much greater things.

“It takes stones, it takes cojones, to sing with a straight gay face a song like ‘Macho Man,’” Randy Jones, aka the original Cowboy from LGBTQ disco sensations Village People, tells Yahoo Music with a laugh. Jones and his fellow uniformed macho men made a major impact in the 1970s, largely through network TV exposure — much like the Emmy-winning RuPaul Charles and the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race are infiltrating the mainstream today.
What will be the Song of the Summer — the tune you’ll be hearing all summer long at pool parties, picnics, and backyard BBQs? Justin Bieber is featured on two prime contenders — Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” and DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One.” Both songs have already reached No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100. Bieber is vying to become the first artist to have two of the top five Songs of the Summer since Iggy Azalea achieved the feat three years ago. He could even wind up being No. 1 and No. 2 for the season. Only two artists have done that — Usher in 2004 and the Black Eyed Peas in 2009.
