MTV’s Annual VMAs Still Happening In 2020

MTV is moving forward with its annual Video Music Awards ceremony in 2020.

New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the announcement Monday, June 29th, detailing Phase III of the city’s reopening, which begins July 6th. If everything goes to plan, the MTV VMAs will be held on Sunday, August 30th at the Barclays Center.

It has been noted that “the event will follow all safety guidance, including limited or no audience.”

Back in May, MTV revealed to Billboard, “The health of everyone involved remains our No. 1 priority. Additionally, we are working on several contingency plans to bring music’s biggest night to audiences everywhere.”

Last year, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish and more took home awards.

Stay tuned for more info.

Billie Eilish Speaks Out for George Floyd & Black Lives Matter Movement

Billie Eilish absolutely blasts the “All Lives Matter” slogan and holds nothing back in a recent social media post that’s drawing increasing attention.

In the pop star’s update below, she takes a stand for George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement — a message that went out with much conviction to her 63.6 million followers over the weekend:

If I hear one more white person say ‘aLL liVeS maTtEr’ one more f**king time, I’m gonna lose my f**king mind. Will you shut the f**k up? No one is saying your life is not hard. No one is saying literally anything at all about you. All you mfs do is find a way to make everything about yourself. This is not about you. Stop making everything about you. You are not in need. You are not in danger.

She continues:

THE SLOGAN OF #blacklivesmatter DOES NOT MEAN OTHER LIVES DON’T. IT’S CALLING ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT SOCIETY CLEARLY THINKS BLACK LIVES DON’T F**KING MATTER!!!!!! AND THEY F**KING DO!!!!!!

In addition, Billie is joining in on Music Industry Blackout Tuesday. Tomorrow, a band of artists have vowed to “disconnect from work and reconnect with our community.” They’re pausing the show to promote accountability and change.

During this devastating time, we applaud all the artists speaking out for justice.

Read Billie’s full statement below.
