Bringing you all the craziness that went down at the recently concluded show!

All the hitmakers and troublemakers of the American music business made headlines -- with big wins and freshly-minted red carpet-onstage shenanigans -- at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, held in Inglewood, California, on August 24.

Queen Bey (formally known as Beyonce) was arguably the star of the night with her magnificent 20-minute performance and the much regarded Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

The award essentially acted as the VMA's 'Lifetime Achievement Award'.

Beyonce and husband, Jay Z won the award for Best Collaboration too.

She chose to use her Video of the Year acceptance speech for Wrecking Ball to pay tribute to homeless youths.
