Beyoncé gives Nicki Minaj the most flawless present
After the slayage that was Beyoncé's Video Music Awards performance, we thought that Queen Bey was done for the day. Of course, we were wrong. She didn't perform another mini concert, but she did give her friend, rapper Nicki Minaj a diamond-encrusted necklace that spells out "Flawless". Altogether now, aww...

"If Beyonce didn't walk into your dressing room and give you a diamond "FLAWLESS" necklace, then there's no way you could be having a better week than me," Nicki wrote on Instagram. "Thank u QUEEN. ur just a precious gem. I could never thank you enough for your influence on powerful women all around the world. #weflawless"

Britney Spears approves of Katy Perry's denim dress tribute
Katy Perry stepped out onto the VMAs red carpet in a Versace Couture denim dress that reminded us of what Britney Spears wore to the American Music Awards in 2001. The replication was in fact deliberate. The Dark Horse singer pulled out all the stops, imitating the patchwork-like detail, chain belt and metal choker from Britney's look. What was even better was that her boyfriend, Riff Raff's matching outfit emulated Justin Timberlake's get-up from when he was Britney's date at the AMAs. The best part, though? Britney was absolutely flattered.

Taylor Swift gives the best VMAs lowdown
Taylor Swift wasn't nominated for any of the VMA categories, but she was present at the awards to perform and to cheer on her best buds, Ed Sheeran and Lorde, both of whom won their first VMAs. The singer, who had recently announced a new album and a pair of sneakers to go with it, also summarised what she felt about this year's music awards.

If you saw how Blue Ivy practically stole her mother, Beyoncé's spotlight with a supportive "Good job, mummy!", you'd agree with Taylor, too.
