MTV EMAs

So, it was the MTV Europe Music Awards in Frankfurt last night, and look, here is a list of winners for you to enjoy. Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber shared the triple win crowns, while One Direction got two gongs, one for having particularly large fans.

Whitney Houston was presented a Global Icon award, though, as the Mirror’s 3AM section expertly noted, she wasn’t celebrating the win on account of her being dead and all. Also not celebrating, the Mirror was keen to note, was Rihanna, who won none of the six awards she was nominated for. “Ouch” says the tab.
