Last night was the 2013 MTV VMAs. Then again, maybe it wasn't—if they throw a Video Music Awards and Britney Spears isn't in attendance, did a Video Music Awards ever really happen at all?

But stuff did happen. Awards were handed out. And we were left with more questions than we had going into it. Like...

1. What?

2. Who did Taylor Swift want to "shut the f--k up"?

3. Why are people still wearing grillz?

9. Will Will Smith and his family ever recover from Miley's performance?

Semi-related: This was Drake's reaction. This was Rihanna's reaction. And this was Taylor "Does Anyone Else See What's Going On Here? Seriously, Am I The Only One Seeing What's Happening on Stage?" Swift's reaction.

10. Who is this?
