On the evening of Monday, August 20, the long awaited 2018 edition of MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) ceremony took place in New York. As every occasion of the sort, American singers flaunted their outfits on the red carpet in celebration of the event.
Madonna for instance, who has just celebrated her 60th birthday with great fanfare in Marrakech on August 16, showed up sporting a set of Berber jewelry. The same she was seen wearing in Morocco, multiplying selfies on the red carpet, especially with the American singer Lenny Kravitz.
And it is wearing Berber jewelry that the diva who has just celebrated its 60th birthday with great fanfare in Marrakech on August 16 has chosen to tread the steps of the red carpet, multiplying selfies, especially with other singers.
Im with the Winner!! The beautiful @camila_cabello ! So proud of her! 🌈💕🎉. And just to clarify: I was asked to present video of the year by MTV! And then they asked me to share any anecdotes I had in my career connected to Aretha Franklin! I shared a part of my journey and thanked Aretha for inspiring me along the way. I did not intend to do a tribute to her! That would be impossible in 2 minutes with all the noise and tinsel of an award show. I could never do her justice in this context or environment. Unfortunately most people have short attention spans, and are so quick to judge. I love Aretha! R.E.S.P.E.C.T. 🙏🏼. I Love Camilla! Congrats! I LOVE my dress! AND. I love-L O V E!! ♥️ and there is nothing anyone can say or do that will change that. #vmas #postivevibes
The Queen of Pop also gave a speech to pay homage to Aretha Franklin (who died last Thursday, coinciding with Madonna’s birthday) by bringing up her own story.
Since arriving in Morocco on August 15, the singer has been posting pictures and looks of Moroccan inspiration, claiming herself to be a « Berber Queen ».
