LIL WAYNE & CHRIS BROWN PICK UP MTV AWARDS

 

Rapper Lil Wayne and R&B crooner Chris Brown emerged as winners Sunday (September 7) during the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.

 

Lil Wayne, who took home the award for Hip-Hop video of the year for his Static Major-assisted hit "Lollipop," was very brief in his acceptance speech with only three acknowledgements - "Thank God. Thank my family and thank y’all."

 

With Leona Lewis providing vocals on the hook for "DontGetIt," Lil Wayne finished his energetic set with "A Millie" and "Got Money" with T-Pain.

 

The rapper reappeared onstage with Kid Rock to provide a rap during Rock’s performance of his hit "All Summer Long."

 

R&B songstress Rihanna also took to the stage multiple times.  She opened the VMAs in goth fashion with her current single “Disturbia” and came back to perform "Live Your Life" with T.I.

 

Meanwhile Rihanna’s better-half Chris Brown picked up the VMA for Best Male Video for "With You.”

 

"Personally, I didn’t think I deserved this award," said the singer who thanked his fans, record label and mother. "I thought Weezy was going to get it."

 

But it was Britney Spears who swept the board at MTV's Video Music Awards, in an appearance that was hailed as a "resurrection" of her career.

 

Spears, who has been nominated 16 times before but never won, thanked "God first and foremost" as she picked up the best video, best pop video and best female video awards.

 

Spears, who wore a short silver mini-dress with a plunging neckline showcasing her svelte figure, was given a standing ovation from the star-studded crowd even before she opened her mouth.

 

British comedian Russell Brand, who presented the live show despite being a virtual unknown in the United States, hailed the "launch of a very new Britney Spears era".

 

Speaking of Brand, the host caused quite a stir throughout the night.  He took several digs at teen pop group the Jonas Brothers for wearing "promise rings" to pledge their virginity until marriage — and "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks wasn't having any of it.

 

When she took the mic she quickly spat back, "Not everyone wants to be a slut," filling the room with applause. Sparks, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez are also among the young stars who have vowed to remain chaste.

 

Other VMA performers included LL Cool J, Pink, Lupe Fiasco, Paramore, Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry and Kanye West, who closed the more than two-hour show with "Love Lockdown," a new song that is expected to appear on his upcoming fourth album.

 

The following is list of winner for the 25th annual MTV Video Music Awards:

Male Video: Chris Brown, "With You"
