MTV’s Video Music Awards will be held at the Barclays Center this year — on August 25, to be exact — meaning that all of your favorite pop stars and teen idols will be invading Downtown Brooklyn. One can only assume that Jay-Z arranged the move so that he and Bey wouldn’t need a sitter. (Come to think of it, Kayne’s kid will need a nursery by then, too. Party at Blue Ivy’s actual crib, see you there.)
