The highly anticipated 2013 MTV Video Music Awards went off with a bang Sunday night.
Starting the festivities was Lady Gaga who donned wigs and ensembles representing various Gaga eras during her "Applause" performance, getting everyone in the crowd like Will Smith and daughter Willow Smith moving and grooving. In typical fashion, Gaga topped herself by almost going topless: stripping down to a seashell bikini to watch the rest of the show.
After that came everything from Miley Cyrus stripping down to a yellow two piece while performing (and bumping and grinding) "Blurred Lines" with Robin Thicke to what appeared to be Kanye West having a seizure while performing. A performance that Thicke clearly approved of as he tweeted Kanye praise. Go figure!
