Masks @ MTV Video Music Awards 2020

I’m not at all surprised that Lady Gaga (left) dominated Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards and winning a total of five awards. 

The VMAs was the first major awards broadcast to air since the coronavirus pandemic shuttered production in America. The hybrid program mixed video acceptances, audience-less performances, and an unearthly, unidentifiable studio base in New York City and leaned heavily on video effects and star enthusiasm. 

The singer led with nine nominations and accepted awards for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Cinematography and Best Collaboration for Rain on Me and the inaugural Tricon award, which recognizes an artist who is highly accomplished across three or more disciplines. 

Of course, Lady Gaga wore masks. Including one with horns, one that resembled a fish bowl, a silver mask and a pink mask with wires surrounding the mouth. She tweeted: “I was wearing face shields before it was a thing”.


In yesterday’s Scottish Premiership match, Celtic beat Motherwell 3-0. 

The scoreline makes it sound so simple for Celtic – but the reigning champions really took their time before breaking down a stubborn Motherwell resistance. 

However, James Forrest’s goal in the fortieth minute, followed by two late strikes from Albian Ajeti (74) and Christopher Jullien (90+2), brought Neil Lennon's side to within six points of leaders Rangers with two games in hand.
