Lady Gaga dominated the MTV Video Music Awards as she arrived with her head in a bubble, performed in an iconic pink face mask before scooping the inaugural Tricon award
Sunday’s show bore little resemblance to those in previous years, with performances taking place outside and in front of severely limited audiences across New York City’s five boroughs due to the health crisis.
Lady Gaga’s wins including artist, song and collaboration of the year, as well as the first ever MTV Tricon Award, in recognition of her achievements in music, fashion and acting.
“I want to share this award with everybody at home tonight. Everybody that is their own form of a Tricon,” she said, before reflecting on a year disrupted by pandemic and social unrest.
“This has not been an easy year for a lot of people, but what I see in the world is a massive triumph of courage,” Gaga, who wore a mask throughout the night, said.
