The MTV Video Music Awards, a ceremony typically best known for revealing outfits and risque performances, turned serious for a few moments tonight.

The event paid tribute to Robin Williams, the Oscar-winning actor who took his own life two weeks ago, with a short montage of pictures of the star, backed by Coldplay‘s “A Sky Full of Stars."

The sexy drama at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards started tonight long before the first act took to the stage.

Amber Rose walked the red carpet of the annual event in a dress that left VERY little to the imagination, bringing to mind the gown donned by Rose McGowan at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.

A backup dancer working on the MTV Video Music Awards performance of Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" was bitten by one of the actual snakes during rehearsal Friday.

A six-foot-long boa constrictor named Rocky, who was being used as a prop, bit the dancer; Minaj was on stage and personally rushed to her dancer's side.
