Things you didn’t see on TV at the 2017 #VMAs: The MTV Video Music Awards 2017 went off without a hitch, and while the cameras captured everything from Kendrick Lamar’s fiery opening performance to Katy Perry’s epic finale, Billboard editors and staff were on hand at Los Angeles’ Forum to report what happened when the cameras weren’t rolling.
1- Pink walked the carpet with her husband Corey Hart and kids in tow, but she took some time out to show love to the fans, taking selfies with them along the way.
2- Cardi B and Young M.A. took a detour on the red carpet to talk to the Billboard team, speaking about empowering women in the hip-hop community. And while fans often suggest that there’s only room for one female rapper to reign supreme at a time, they insisted that there’s no beef between them—and especially Nicki Minaj.
3- Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei recently made a cameo in Khalid’s video for “Young, Dumb & Broke,” and after giving hints of a potential collaboration, Khalid confirmed to Billboard that he and Normani have plans to hit the studio, and that she’s going to send him ideas soon.
