Lady Gaga ‘overwhelmed’ with love following dominant night at VMAs
Lady Gaga has thanked her fans following an impressive night at the MTV Video Music Awards, during which she won five major gongs.
The pop star’s wins included artist, song, cinematography and collaboration of the year, as well as the first MTV Tricon Award, in recognition of her achievements in music, fashion and acting.
On Monday evening, Gaga shared a photo of herself with her prizes, wearing an elaborate face mask, MTV T-shirt and black platform boots.
She told her 43.3 million followers: “This nyc girl is so overwhelmed with all of the love. Thank you for always sticking with me. I love you so much.”
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 coronavirus pandemic.
Before the show, the stars walked a socially-distanced red carpet lacking its usual bustle and energy, an early sign that this year’s VMAs would be different to those before it.
The ceremony was dedicated to Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, who died on Friday aged 43 following a four-year battle with colon cancer.
