In honor of the VMAs this past weekend, we decided to dish out some video awards of our own. From Beyonce’s surprise 17-song #flawless visual album to Iggy Azalea’s summer jam “Fancy,” the last year has been action packed in terms of rocking (and raucous) music videos. (Oh, and did we mention we got an IRL Iggy Experience on Friday night at The SLS Las Vegas grand opening party?) We picked out our six favorites in six brand new categories because – why not? See our winners below!
