Here Are The Best GIFs, Tweets, & Dank Memes Of The 2016 VMAs

Hey y’all! We back out here for the 2016 Video Music Awards, the only awards show where the music doesn’t matter at all and it’s all about the moments, baby! The VMAs are scientifically engineered for trending topics, so we’re guaranteed some amusing but ephemeral hijinks, all of which will be collected here for future generations to scratch their heads at. Kanye West has got four minutes to do whatever, Rihanna is set to receive the Video Vanguard Award, and Britney Spears is going to perform for the first time on the show since 2007 (though probably without her snake). Join us as we collect all the meaningless GIFs, tweets, vines, videos, and dank memes from this year’s festivities below.
