During the chat, she opened up about preparing for her 2020 MTV VMAs performance with VMAs directors.

“I was just asking some questions, not even on some diva s—t. I wanted the lights to be turned off and then the lighting of the room to just be lighting me. So no key light, no beauty light. The beauty light is always used on women and I said turn the f——g lights off. You would never tell Travis Scott or Adam Levine that he couldn’t turn the beauty light off,” she said.

“They said, ‘Okay, we’ll just do the same thing that we would do with the guys,’ because that’s what I want. And then something that I was doing…my bracelets kept getting caught in all this s—t and they said, ‘You want to be treated like a guy? We wouldn’t be dealing with this if a guy was doing it.’”

“And I said, ‘Well a guy wouldn’t be doing this because a guy doesn’t sell your show with sex the way that I’m going to.’ And I’m aware of that. It’s a ridiculous conversation and also embarrassing.”

Miley also recently opened up about her split from Liam Hemsworth.

Kobe Bryant Left Out of MTV VMAs 2020 In Memoriam, Fans Express Outrage

Fans are outraged that Kobe Bryant was left out of the In Memoriam tribute at the 2020 MTV VMAs.

Some were wondering if this blatant omission was due to the fact that he was not a music star, but the VMAs included late stars Naya Rivera and Chadwick Boseman who were also not known as musicians.

The introduction to the tribute even added that they would be honoring “other brilliant artists we lost.”

After this segment aired, Kobe Bryant‘s fans took to Twitter to express disbelief and outrage over the exclusion of his name. Kobe was not just a star NBA player, he also was an Oscar winner for his Best Animated Short Film, Dear Basketball, among many other endeavors before his tragic death in January of 2020.

Lady Gaga Addresses the Difficult 2020 While Accepting Tricon Award: 'Wear a Mask, It's a Sign of Respect'

Lady Gaga hits the stage in her final look of the night at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, which aired on Sunday (August 30).

The 34-year-old entertainer was presented with the special Tricon Award, a first-ever award at the VMAs.

“This is so cool. This means a lot to me,” Gaga said while accepting the special award. “I’ve been making music since I was a little girl. And even though I had really, really big dreams, I truly never could have imagined that someday I would be given an award like this that honored me for so many of my passions. I want you to know I’ve failed over and over again as an actress and as a musician when I was young. So I gave back to the local community through service as a young woman in New York, philanthropy became a much bigger part of my life as a star and I started the Born This Way foundation with my mother.”

Gaga also addressed how 2020 has been a very difficult year for many people.

“Everybody at home, that is their own form of a Tricon, I wish for you to think right now of three things that define who you are and take a moment to reward yourself for your bravery,” she said. “This has not been an easy year for a lot of people. What I see in the world is a massive triumph of courage. I also hope that people at home that have big dreams, I hope they see me here today accepting this award and know how grateful I am. I want you to know that you can do this too. Just because we are separated right now, and culture may feel less alive in some ways. I know a renaissance is coming, and the wrath of pop culture will inspire you.”

Gaga ended the speech by saying, “Wear a mask. It’s a sign of respect.” She actually did wear a mask with EVERY look this evening!

FYI: Gaga is wearing a Valentino Couture catsuit, a Candice Cuoco jacket, a Maison Met mask, Lance V Moore face armor, a Manuel Albarran choker and bra, Lillian Shalom rings, Dena Kemp earrings and bracelets, and Pleasers shoes.
