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!

The “Boo” is back!

In Boo 2: A Madea Halloween, Tyler Perry’s character Brian is a bit of a dorky dad … but in real life, Perry says he lays down the law when it comes to his own son, 3 1/2 year-old Aman.

HH caught up with Tyler during the press rounds for Boo 2 and the multi-facted mogul gave us some insight on how and why he would be quick to transform into a James Evans (from Good Times) kind of dad.
