Miley twerked, Rihanna smirked, Kanye raged, One Direction preened, Taylor sneered, Macklemore pandered, Gaga vamped, Katy jumped rope, Bruno triumphed, Daft Punk faltered, and JT just dragged on and on and on, all while Will Smith and his lovely family looked on in horror. Yes, time to count down the highlights and lowlights of the 2013 Video Music Awards, live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where, appropriately enough, the evening’s unofficial theme was gentrification! Enjoy.
