Ouch! And Lo Bosworth told her Lady Lovin" podcast in February that she said "F***, no!

Cabello, 21, was chosen artist of the year and won video of the year for her Latin-flavored hit "Havana", while rapper Cardi B picked up wins for best new artist and song of summer for her dance hit "I Like It" with J Balvin and Bad Bunny.

Missing from Radio City Music Hall was Whitney Port, who hinted at her own involvement with a tweet teasing the unveiling: 'Everything MIGHT happen tonight at the #VMAs!' "I'm the empress-the liberals voted for me", she said with her signature cackle. I love you, seriously. There were also show-stopping performances from Ed Sheeran, Demi Lovato, DNCE, Rod Stewart, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Shawn Mendes, Gucci Mane, Julia Michaels, Alessia Cara and KYLE.

Jennifer Lopez will celebrate receiving the VMAs' coveted Vanguard Award in a big way.

But before Lopez gave her speech, she gave one of the best Vanguard Video victor performances ever and performed most of her iconic hits, such as "Waiting for Tonight", "On The Floor", "Dance Again", and "Jenny From The Block". And Lopez started off slow - Kylie Jenner and Scott's unamused faces perfectly captured the vibe - but she hit a strong stride when she sang old smashes like "Jenny from the Block", "I'm Real" - where Ja Rule joined her onstage - and "All I Have", which showed the skilled dancer's vocal range.

Cardi said she's been blessed with fans "that you can't buy", looking into the camera and shouting an expletive.

Lopez ended her speech, thanking her fans who have "touched" her "heart" and "soul" and have become apart of her. "Anybody who knows me knows that and you guys have won me over forever". We're like mirror images of each other. "There's so much more to do, to experience, and there's no one id rather do it with baby, you're my macho and I love you".

Once the "Dinero" singer accepted her Video Vanguard Award, Rodriguez - who had Lopez's son, Max, on his lap - sweetly looked at her and even blushed when she gave him a shout out.
