What You Didn’t See at the 2012 VMAs

Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry

The VMAs are always known for creating sensational moments, whether it’s Kanye West crashing the stage during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech or Beyoncé showing off her baby bump as a proud Jay-Z looked on. This year was no exception as Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose decided to go public with their baby news and Rihanna and Chris Brown hugged it out on-camera.

There were plenty of photos opps on and off stage. Drake chatted up Katy Perry, Chris Brown sat alongside Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne held court in the front row, 2 Chainz met his “boo” Katy Perry, and Alicia Keys kicked it backstage with Gabby Douglas.

Check out some of the untelevised moments below.

    @GURL, not really, it’s alot of people that feel the same way. Last year’s VMA show was the highest rated in the past 7 or 8 years of the show because the BIG 3 were performing … Adele, Beyonce & Lady Gaga. The rating report released earlier today stated that last night’s show was on par w/ previous years, just average ratings. But then again, when you have average performers what do you expect? Heard Chris didn’t perform which is a shame, why would you have that talent seated when he could be on stage. Of course Ri opened, she was a mess vocally (as to be expected). The only bright spot in last night’s show was Frank Ocean.
