The women ruled the evening at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards with vag-tastic performances by Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Rita Ora, and Iggy Azalea. Not to be outdone, Usher, 5 Seconds Of Summer, and Maroon 5 also gave great performances while overly clothed but hey, we can't all pull off a sparkly unitard. Right, Beyoncé? So while the ladies went with the running theme of hitting the stage in "smaller is better" wardrobe choices, Jay Pharaoh killed it with the impersonations, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels made cameos, Katy Perry mimicked a prior Britney Spears look, Miley Cyrus helped the homeless, and Twitter, well, they had a shit ton to say about all of it. Here are our picks for "The Best Tweets During the 2014 VMAs."

Did the Video Music Awards Snub Stitches?

Better have his money when he comes a'collect.

This Sunday, MTV airs the highly anticipated 31st installment of their Video Music Awards. Always an unpredictable raucous night, there's unfortunately a black cloud looming over Sunday's telecast. That is the complete and total snubbing of Florida rapper Stitches.

Ever since "Brick In Yo Face" hit the internet last April, we've had the bevy of images from the Mazadi Vision directed clip firmly etched in our minds. We at the Weekly also wish we loved anything as much as Stitches loves selling blow. Of course, MTV as a network never aired the clip for presumably the same reason they never aired Neil Young's "This Note's For You," namely an overabundance of references to "Coke." Yet, while Young was nominated and later won Video of the Year, Stitches was left in the dark. While taste is subjective, we feel "Brick In Yo Face" most than holds its own against any of the other Video of the Year nominees, and we're about to put the reasons why in your face. Now, wat'cha gon' do with it?

Limp Bizkit Blowing Up A Boat Turns 15

While some consider Memorial Day to be the unofficial kick-off of the summer, let's be real people. Summer doesn't begin until Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst blows up a boat. Or, at least, that's how the summer of 1999 began.

That season, whose boat-exploding milestone turns 15 tomorrow, was truly the summer of "TRL." At a time when the music industry was having significantly unprecedented success, MTV's request-only countdown was the barometer for Soundscan superstardom. While plenty can debate whether "TRL" (formerly "Total Request Live") set the trends in music or merely reflected the diversity of that year's popular music spectrum, there's no denying what a huge boost appearing on the show did not only for musicians, but actors and entertainers of all types.

Jesse Camp
This Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of an infamous day for the MTV generation. It was on May 25th, 1999 that former MTV VJ Jesse Camp unleashed to the world his one album, Jesse and the 8th Street Kidz. It was a big day, an end of an era and a landmark swan song to one of the '90s most unforgettable flamboyant curiosities. We at the Weekly are taking this anniversary as an excuse to take one more visit back to Camp.

It's time to break out the golden popcorn as the 2014 MTV Movie Awards are here! This Sunday's live broadcast, hosted by Conan O'Brien, looks to continue the show's 22-year-long tradition of being cinema's least predictable night. With the first show, where Terminator 2: Judgment Day swept the categories, setting the standard in 1992, the fan-voted awards have allowed for a strong barometer of where the public taste falls. The show's also been home to career-making breakthrough performances from the likes of The White Stripes in 2002 and Kid Rock in 1999.

This year's show, broadcasting from Los Angeles' Nokia Theater, is headlined by a collaborative performance between Eminem and Rihanna, as well as Ellie Goulding, Zedd and 21 pilots. Along with being the only award show to boast awards in such categories as "Best Scared-As-Shit Performance" and "#WTF Moment," there are five nominees in the Best Musical Moment category that we're more than happy to list for your consideration here.

The Funniest 2013 MTV Video Music Awards Tweets

@sarahcolonna Dear Mom and Dad: Hey, at least I haven't done this! #VMAs
From the horrendous pre-show where none of the "hosts" let the "artists" talk, to the actual award show that didn't disappoint in giving us all comments that were laugh-worthy, once again Twitter was more exciting than this year's MTV Video Music Awards show. The truth of the matter? Following Twitter is almost always more fun than any actual award show and this year during the 2013 VMA's, the tweets that the viewers churned out didn't let us down. People definitely weren't shy about bagging on the term "Mahomie" that was spewed out of singer Austin Mahone's mouth, or Miley Cyrus's excessive need to keep sticking her rank tongue out her mouth while gyrating a foam finger into her latex covered vagina. The MTV #VMA hashtag was on fire and we captured some of the best of the best just for you.

Justin Timberlake
This Sunday at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Justin Timberlake is going to be receiving the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The most prestigious of all Moonmen, the Video Vanguard Award is given to artists or directors who've particularly pushed the limits of music videos and advanced the art form. It's an award that's not even handed out annually, making the few who receive it all the more significant. Timberlake's been a staple of MTV for the past 15 years, exactly half as long as the VMAs have been on-the-air themselves, so we at the Weekly have decided to look back at Timberlake's most memorable video moments.

'Ain't That America' With Lil Duval is Straight Up Bussin!

When it comes to bringing amazingly epic and comical quick quips on MTV's "Guy Code," Lil Duval has it down to an artform. He's so hilarious in fact that MTV2 gave him his own show that will be premiering on July 9th called, "Ain't That America." And for good reason. He's funny on TV, his stand-up is funny, he's funny on Twitter...are you noticing a trend here people? Lil Duval kicks ass in the funny department. Before the premiere of his new show we got the scoop on what he has in store for us, found out how he handled being at EDC, and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to shit talk with him about some of his recent tweets. What we learned is that without a doubt, Lil Duval is living the American dream.
