Katy Perry hosted the last year’s VMA. Kendrick Lamar took the award for Video of the Year for “Humble”. Last year show was set on fire with the sizzling performances of Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Logic, Miley Cyrus and much more.

Not sure that Cardi B will perform this year or not because she has just given birth to a baby girl “Kulture”

Don’t worry about Kulture’s birth date and enjoy the successful 35th birthday of the VMAs.
