THE YOUTUBE AWARDS UNCOVERED

Last night saw #ytma trending worldwide – well, the YouTube Music Awards were available for anyone with internet to live stream, after all. Didn't catch it? No worries, here's your blag to the talking-point events of the night. And they were all a little bonkers. The awards' creative director Spike Jonze (the writer/director/producer behind Hollywood blockbusters including Jackass, Being John Malkovich, and the upcoming Her) did say he wanted the night to be unscripted chaos. And, indeed, it was 88 minutes of just that. 

Lena Dunham and Vanessa Hudgens
1/4

VANESSA HUDGENS WAS (FAKE) ATTACKED!

Lena Dunham wrote an interactive four-minute short film (with an ending chosen by the audience), with a love triangle storyline that saw Vanessa Hudgens gripped in a headlock by a planted fake audience member. A little nuts yes, but totally innovative. 




Vanessa joined Michael on stage while a live music video was shot, which was written by Lena Dunham. They starred as a DJ and a girl who ditched her ex. At one point, a high-strung concert-goer put her in a headlock as “Wake Me Up” revved up in the background.

Lady Gaga

LADY GAGA SPORTED NEW TEETH

Gaga never disappoints when it comes to her big red-carpet reveal, does she? In attendance to perform her new song Dope, she recreated the single's artwork by wearing the same teeth to the show. Eek, we all thought Halloween spooks were over...

Rashida Jones

RASHIDA JONES' CO-HOSTS

And, we're really not quite sure why, but at one point, Rashida got up on stage to hand the awards hosts, Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts two babies. Hmmm.

Girls
4/4

KOREAN POP STOLE THE NIGHT

Girls' Generation (super-popular K-Pop band in Asia) snagged video of the year with their somewhat colourful I Got A Boy. Think dance sequences, snapbacks and crop tops. It's completely mad and we sort of <3 it. Watch it here.
