One Direction, Lana Del Rey, Frank Ocean + M.I.A. Nab U.K. Music Video Awards
The awards ceremony took place in London on Nov. 8, and each artist took home a different trophy. Del Rey snagged the Best International Pop Video award for ‘Born to Die.’ The stunning starlet will likely be up for a slew of various video awards following the release of ‘Born to Die: The Paradise Edition,’ because it seems like she releases a new video every week. Her most recent offering, ‘Bel Air,’ may be her simplest to date.
U.K. natives One Direction were the winners of the VEVO People’s Choice Award for ‘Live While We’re Young,’ which should surprise almost no one. Directioners are rivaled only by Beliebers in terms of dedication, so you better believe they voted their hearts out for the teen pop heartthrobs!
Frank Ocean’s award for Best International Urban Video is the ‘Channel Orange’ crooner’s first international award, so we bet it holds a special spot in his heart.
The big winner of the night was controversial rapper M.I.A. Though she earned some vitriol stateside following her middle finger flash with Madonna during their Super Bowl halftime performance, she’s a huge hit in the U.K., and it showed — she took home three awards, including the all-important Video of the Year for ‘Bad Girls.’
Congrats to all the winners on both sides of the pond!
