Pink accepts Video Vanguard Award at MTV VMAs

Share

Of course, P!nk was there to perform a medley of hits and accept her Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, accompanied by her attractive 6-year-old daughter Willow Sage and her husband Carey Hart.

She began by recounting a story from her daughter Willow, who told her mum: 'I'm the ugliest girl I know'.

Pink said she immediately swung into action after hearing her young daughter speak so harshly about herself.

"Look What You Made Me Do" is the first single from the Grammy Award-winning artist's album "Reputation", out November 10. Er, no. Then she chose to go a more peaceful route, instead making a PowerPoint presentation of "androgynous" singers who "who live their truth" to show her daughter-including performers like Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Annie Lennox, and Elton John. She added photos of Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Elton John, Prince, George Michael, Freddie Mercury etc. After singing a medley of her biggest hits, the pop star went on to deliver an emotional speech aimed at her 6-year-old daughter, Willow, who she shares with husband Carey Hart, 42.

"Well, you're attractive", came the reply.

"[They] wave their flag, and inspire the rest of us". It finishes with fourteen different "Taylors" (her past looks), arguing and criticising each other. Kanye said, "Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'ma let you finish... but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time". And I said, "Yes baby?"

In her video for Look What You Made Me Do, Swift is shown draped in jewellery as sits in a bathtub filled with diamonds and money. Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?' 'Yes, mama'.

"She keeps showing me because she knows it makes me queasy", P!nk laughed.

She was introduced by the Rev. Robert Lee IV (a descendant of Civil War general Robert E. Lee), who said, "We have made my ancestor an idol of white supremacy, racism and hate". "We take the gavel and the shell and we make a pearl".
