Meanwhile, Eminem has no idea why he landed his Best Hip Hop award.
The 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards took place over the weekend, with some stellar performers and some very well-deserved award recipients. Shawn Mendes was the big winner of the night, taking home four gongs in total and playing his winning single 'There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back' live.

It appears he's the only nominee of the night to take home multiple awards.

Another sensational Sunday evening from the VMAs.
The 2017 MTV VMAs rocked up this weekend with a number of special surprises, a big political agenda and a big win for Kendrick Lamar. There were some seriously spectacular performances, a few tear-jerking moments, but most of all it was an event of solidarity between everyone involved.

Bieber was asked some pretty poor questions without the aid of a translator, and eventually he ran out of patience and left the studio.
Justin Bieber has engaged in, and walked out of, more than his fair share of bizarre interviews during his career, but he’s probably not been involved in one as trying as this.
The Daily Mail reported a painfully awkward exchange that occurred on Wednesday (October 28th) with the Spanish radio station Vodafone yu. In an interview that featured three Spanish-speaking interviews, only one of whom could speak English in very rudimentary fashion, and no translator for Bieber (who most definitely does not habla Espanol), there could only be one outcome.

Sheeran co-presented the EMAs with Ruby Rose on Sunday night, but his rowdier-than-normal antics caused some to speculate whether he was drunk.
They’re supposed to the ‘sensible alternative’ to the showbiz blowout of the VMAs, but the MTV Europe Music Awards at the weekend provided a surprising number of talking points – not least the sight of a slightly drunk Ed Sheeran proving once and for all that he’s not just some bland nonentity.
The superstar, who picked up two awards during the evening as well as sharing the hosting duties with ‘Orange Is The New Black’s Ruby Rose, put in a gloriously half-cut performance that had many viewers commenting with amusement on his antics.

Minaj will kick off Sunday night's awards ceremony with a live performance, despite her well-publicised complaints about the snub for her video 'Anaconda'.
Although she was very upset to be snubbed for her ‘Anaconda’ video earlier this month, Nicki Minaj has revealed that she’ll be opening the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony on Sunday evening with a live performance.
32 year old Minaj has performed twice before at the VMAs ceremony, but this is the first time she’ll open the evening. She’s fresh off the back of her sold-out Pinkprint Tour across the US.
She decided to tease her fans a little bit as part of her announcing the upcoming performance, posting a picture of what looked like a sonogram scan on Thursday evening (August 27th) – poking fun at those pregnancy rumours that have been doing the rounds this month.

Taylor is having to deal with more bad blood with Miley calling her out, and is suspicious that Katy Perry might be behind it all.
An unnamed insider told HollywoodLife on Saturday (August 15th) that Swift believes Perry has somehow incited Miley to attack her. Cyrus has recently spoken of her distaste for Tay’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video, criticising it for being “violent”, and has recently hinted that she and her current boyfriend Calvin Harris will be the prime targets of her upcoming MTV VMAs performance on August 30th.
