MTV VMA’s Going To Brooklyn This Year

Published

Here’s a nice little win for Brooklyn.

MTV has just announced that they are moving their legendary Video Music Awards show to Brooklyn this year! The highly anticipated awards show – featuring those iconic  “Moonman” statues — will be held at the brand new Barclays Center on Sunday, August 25.

Yesterday, MTV Instagrammed a series of photos documenting the Moonman’s journey from LA (where the VMA’s have been held for the past 4 years), to  the BK.  Coincidentally, this first ever awards show at the home of Biggie and Jay-Z, will mark the 30th anniversary of the VMA show itself. 

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz had this to say:

“From hip-hop to hipsters, Jay- Z to MGMT, Brooklyn musicians have a long history of dominating the ‘spotlight’ on MTV. Brooklyn is a cultural Mecca — the hippest, coolest place for young people across the country, and has played a crucial role in the careers of some of 2013’s biggest bands…it is only fitting that Brooklyn will host… I’m so thrilled that I’ll probably get ‘no sleep till Brooklyn’ hosts the VMAs!”

NY Mayor Bloomberg chimed in on the excitement, saying:

“Brooklyn is home to icons like the Cyclone in Coney Island and the Brooklyn Bridge.  And now it can lay claim to the MTV Video Music Awards.”

Expect to see Jay-Z front row and center this year!  Do you think it’s new location in Brooklyn will change the look of the VMA’s at all?  Sound off below!

Kevin Hart may be the star in the family, but it’s his wife Eniko Hart who stole the show during the premiere for his flick “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle”.

It was Mrs. Hart’s first red carpet since giving birth to the couple’s first child, Kenzo Kash, just three weeks ago. To say it was a snapback is an understatement. The 30-year-old, who worked out during her entire pregnancy, look sexy and svelt in a elegant black number while her superstar hubby hit the carpet in a black suit with white trim.

Although the couple faced some bumps in the road earlier this year with Kev being extorted over a video showing him cheating on his wife, the couple has bounced back. And on Tuesday night’s jungle-themed red carpet Hart told HipHollywood, “My wife is just an amazing woman … I would not be me right now without that woman in my life.”

You can see Kev, alongside Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and more, when “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle” hits theaters on December 20th.
