Kevin Hart took center stage at the Staples Center in L.A. tonight to host the always unpredictable 2012 MTV Video Music Awards to a packed crowd and after making jokes about Kristen Stewart, Drake, Snooki and more, the show got off to a rocking start with a performance from Rihanna.
The night continued on with stellar performances from Taylor Swift, Pink, Green Day, Alicia Keys and more. However, we felt the absence of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga! Did you?
