The MTV Video Music Awards can be a lot to take in and with so many Will Smith and Taylor Swift reaction shots to keep track of, there were surely some details that must’ve slipped by without you noticing. Here are a number of small details you might’ve missed out on during the show:
1. Drake’s a fan of 5 Gum
Drake delivered one of the best performances of the night starting with a quick rendition of his new single, Hold On, We’re Going Home, before launching into his hit Started From the Bottom. During the former, though, the rapper showed off his profile by re-enacting his newly-revealed album cover, an illustration of his side profile with a blue sky backdrop. Well, during the first half of his performance, Twitter suddenly went abuzz with something that had nothing to do with the performance at all, rather his haircut. After someone mentioned that his hairdo resembled the shape and design of 5 Gum, the internet exploded with photoshopped photos, like the one above, comparing the two. And we’ve got to admit, we totally see the resemblance. We bet 5 Gum’s sales have skyrocketed since, to which Drake has only one thing to say:
2. Speaking of reaction shots…
Miley Cyrus’ performance definitely elicited some reactions (or in the case of Drake and Rihanna, lack of reactions), but one that might’ve been overlooked was One Direction’s Niall Horan. Look at the poor boy cringing at the sight of Cyrus’ twerktastic performance. POOR, NIALL.
But, we’re not going to lie, this is still the best.
3. A boy bander needs to eat during the show.
Maybe it was because of Taylor Swift’s sly jabs or maybe because he was simply just hungry, but One Direction’s Harry Styles was definitely craving a snack during the awards show last night. And while all eyes were on Rihanna’s ice queen reaction during Drake’s performance, take a look at Harry peeling a clementine behind her. Stuffing your feelings, Harry?
4. Jayden Smith has a lot of feelings.
By now, you’ve probably seen this Smith family reaction shot during Lady Gaga’s opening performance last night (not Miley Cyrus’, as some have reported):
But, another great one that you might have missed out on was Jayden Smith’s reaction after Drake’s performance. The camera cut to him and his dad, Will Smith, where Jayden appeared to be overwhelmed with emotions and almost holding back tears. #thankyoubaseddrake
5. Katy Perry’s grillz
The pop star was MIA throughout most of the night, preparing for her stellar show-closing number outdoors, but when she took to the red carpet earlier that evening, she sported not only bling on her dress, but also on her teeth. Rockin’ a colourful grill on her top front teeth, Perry wanted everyone to know that she is not someone you’d want to mess with. Noted.
Bonus: N*SYNC did indeed reunite at last night’s show, but for all of 110 seconds – notably even shorter than Destiny Child’s reunion at the Super Bowl. So, just in case you missed it, here’s proof that the other four members were onstage (and that JT totally shut it down after 110 seconds):
