Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry

What You Didn’t See at the 2012 VMAs

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.
