MTV VMA 2017 Ceremony
August 27 in Los Angeles was held the 34th ceremony of awarding the MTV Video Music Awards.
The winners were presented with statuettes in the form of an astronaut in a spacesuit with a flag on which the coat of arms of the MTV channel was depicted. The singer Kendrick Lamar became the triumphant of the evening. He took with him 6 statuettes.
Leading ceremony was the singer Katy Perry. Despite the fact that the performer did not take any awards, from her speech Katy Perry made a real show dressed up in cosmonaut costume.
The most touching moment of the ceremony was the speech of singer Pink, which she devoted to her little daughter. Pink was awarded the name of Michael Jackson from the hands of TV presenter Ellen Degeneres. The singer said from the stage, addressing her daughter, that everyone should take themselves for what they really are. And do not forget that all people are different. Pink noted that her six-year-old daughter is often laughed at by peers because of her appearance. Pink noticed that she is not endowed with the traditional attraction with which women are associated. But she feels great and lives in harmony with herself.
