The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards were handed out last night in L.A. It's an awards show honoring music videos, which haven't been aired on MTV in years.

Whatever, right? Without the VMAs, stars wouldn't have an excuse to wear crazy $h!t and make ridiculous speeches as they accept totally arbitrary honors.

We kid. Mostly. Whatever you think of the show, it marks what has often been the year's craziest night in music, and this year, it moved in a new direction.

ONE Direction.

RIhanna at MTV Video Music Awards

It was a virtual British invasion at Staples Center as the hunky UK boy band teens took home three awards Thursday night and barged in on Rihanna's party.

Rih kicked off things with a performance to open the show, then ended it by taking the TOP honor, video of the year for her steamy hit "We Found Love."

But it was One Direction which provided the most screamed-over performance, then won best pop video, best new artist and most share-worthy video.

Chris Brown pulled off something of an upset in the best male video category. Rihanna's former boyfriend won for his self-directed "Turn Up The Music."

Drake won best hip-hop video for "HYFR," which featured Lil Wayne. Nicki Minaj, dressed in a skintight full-body outfit, won best female video for "Starships."

Follow the jump for a full list of winners from the 2012 MTV VMAs!

It started with Miley Cyrus new hair photos. Just dyed blonde, not a huge deal.

It then got a lot more punk, as the singer chopped off her locks and faced mounting criticism on the Internet.

Now, thanks to her appearance at tonight's MTV Video Music Awards, the Miley Cyrus transformation is complete and we know the exact look this artist was aiming for: Pink's!

Looking eerily like the "So What" crooner, Miley posed for fans and photographers with a mohawk and a plunging neckline. See for yourself:

It's official: Taylor Swift is funnier, cooler and a much better actress than Kim Kardashian.

The wildly popular singer anchors a new commercial for the MTV Video Music Awards, appearing opposite host Kevin Hart and poking fun at the fact that she writes so many songs about ex-boyfriends.

It's pretty funny and Swift is pretty terrific in it, which is a stark contrast to the wooden Kardashian and the lack of humor in her VMA ad from a couple weeks ago. Check it out now:

Apparently Kanye West and his "Perfect Bitch" can actually do something aside from pose for the paparazzi.

In a new spot for the MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye and Kim Kardashian are actually seen interacting for the first time (for marketing purposes, of course), as they appear opposite comedian/event host Kevin Hart. The subject of the commercial?

Threesomes and couple nicknames, of course. Topics very close to Kim's heart.

Watch now and learn what moniker Hart wants to give the three, along with the way in which the conversation somehow turns to white hoods and KKK. Does this make you want to watch the VMAs on September 6? Or bludgeon your TV screen with a sledge hammer?

Trend-setting collaborators Rihanna and Drake lead the star-studded list of nominees for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, released this morning.

Following a year when both singers pushed boundaries by mixing in even more dance and R&B flavor, the pair lead all nominees with five apiece.

Rihanna, in fact, has two chances to take home the top Video of the Year prize for her solo hit "We Found Love" and her duet with Drake, "Take Care."

Rihanna and Drake Perform

Chris Brown, a name often linked to both Rihanna and Drake for different reasons, also scored a pair of nominations at the annual extravaganza.

Frank Ocean, who came out as bisexual earlier this summer, is up for two awards. 2011's biggest winner, Katy Perry, is second with four nominations.

This year's show will air live on September 6 at 8 p.m. EST from the Staples Center in Los Angeles and feature a host of big-name performances.

Read the full list of 2012 MTV Video Music Awards nominees below:

Lady Gaga certainly did not leave anything in the bag in her bid to become Jo Calderone at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles Sunday.

The pop star didn't just wear men's clothing and fake stubble. Lady Gaga took dressing in drag to the extreme, wearing a prosthetic penis, even.

Seriously, she was. Talk about getting into character.

Lady Gaga-Jo Calderone

Perhaps that was the impetus behind the revelation that Gaga/Jo used to pleasure himself to Britney Spears when he was a kid. He/she didn't say.

"I am from New Jersey," Jo Calderone said. "My family is from Palermo, Sicily. I'm not a singer or a model or an actor or anything. I am just a guy."

A guy who always keeps things interesting, for sure.

Sunday's telecast of the MTV Video Music Awards set a record with 12.4 million viewers, the largest audience ever for the network, according to reports.

The previous high was set by ... the previous week's Jersey Shore.

The VMAs, a celebrity gossip bonanza and the one night every year that the network that once revolutionized music pretends to still care about it, were up nine percent in total viewers from last year. It was the top cable telecast of the year so far.

Among the many highlights? A rare Britney Spears appearance, Beyonce's pregnancy announcement, The Hunger Games trailer and Gaga's male alter ego.

No word if Jo Calderone will be asked to host next year's event.

Chris Brown flew through the air. Beyonce made a major announced AND performed on stage. And Lady Gaga channeled her inner Jo Calderone.

As always, the MTV Video Music Awards delivered a night of drama, humor, talent... and did we mention fashion? THG is your one-stop online shop for everything VMA, as our coverage is linked to below...

Hey, Lady Gaga is just calling it like she sees it. Or at least like Jo Calderone, her male alter ego who performed at the MTV VMAs last night, sees it.

Jo put on quite the show on stage, but also in the press room, where he weighed in with some, um, interesting remarks about Britney Spears.

Asked if he would hook up with Britney, Calderone said this ...

Lady Gaga and Britney Spears

"Well, maybe if she wants to, you know what I'm saying ... She is f--king hot. Britney's f--king hot. I don't know. Gaga is my girl, but Britney's f--king hot - this is f--king Britney Spears! Didn't you jerk off to Britney when you were a kid?"

Okay then.

As for who the heck Jo Calderone - an anagram of "Alejandro" - thinks he is and where he came from, the drag version of Gaga had this to say:

Talk about a matchup made in celebrity fashion heaven.

Lady Gaga's performance as Jo Calderone wasn't the last we saw of her male alter ego at the MTV Video Music Awards. She showed up at Sunday's event in character and continued to channel Jo at an after party following the show!

Topping last year's meat dress wasn't easy, but she may have managed it in her understated drag. That is way too convincing. Gaga may have even outshone Nicki Minaj - not an easy feat - for wildest couture choice of the night.
