Was für eine Nacht! Bei der Verleihung der MTV Video Music Awards in New York gaben sich die Superstars der Branch die Klinke in die Hand. Rihanna (28), Beyoncé (34) und Britney Spears (34) sind nur ein paar der Künstler, die auf der Bühne des Madison Square Gardens dem Publikum gehörig einheizten - und dafür wurden einige von ihnen mit den begehrten Trophäen geehrt.
