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 BeyoncĂ© showing off her baby bump as a proud Jay-Z looked on.

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.

Rihanna and Chris Brown Embrace at VMAs

Rihanna and Chris Brown

One of the most-talked-about moments at the MTV VMAs was not aired on the telecast. While the category of Best Hip-Hop Video was being presented, cameras captured Rihanna as she went up to kiss former boyfriend Chris Brown on the cheek and give him a hug. She also greeted Bu Thiam, VP of A&R at Def Jam, before patting a blonde Breezy on the head as she walked away.

The former couple has avoided attending the same events since their highly-publicized breakup in 2009.

Rihanna told Oprah that she still has love for Chris, but they are not romantically involved. “He’s in a relationship of his own,” she said. “I’m single but we have maintained a very close friendship.”
