Stars walk red carpet at Barclays Center for VMA’s

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Excitement about the Video Music Awards has been building all week and Sunday night, music’s biggest stars invaded Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

It’s the first major awards show held in Brooklyn and what better venue than the Barclays Center and what better than the VMA’s.

The huge crowd of fans that packed the red carpet went wild as Robin Thicke made his appearance and other artists nominated for honors followed.

"This is my first VMA’s. I’m pinching myself that I’m actually here,” said singer Wanz.

When Fox 5 asked him to sing a few lines … “I wear your granddad’s clothes, I look incredible.”

Nominee ASAP Rocky from Harlem shared a kiss with supermodel Chanel Iman then spoke with Fox 5.

“I’m so happy to be here right now.”

At times there seemed to be more reality start there than artists.

Renee Graziano of ‘Mob Wives’ was asked what you think about the VMA’s being in Brooklyn.

“It belongs here. This is it. Brooklyn is just a special place for everything – especially good food.”

“I’m very excited because it’s like every time there’s an event we fight with L.A. – so it’s a process,” said Drita D’Avanzo of ‘Mob Wives.’ “Now they’re like it’s going to be at the Barclays Center and I’m like score.”

“It’s always fun you know, you get to see new faces, old faces and great memories every time,” said Ronnie of the ‘Jersey Shore.’

The real winner is the city for showing the world how to throw a major world class event.

    Some might call Jenn Wehrung a performance artist. Others, more simply, a masochist. This Brooklynite shares her deepest innermost thoughts from 6th grade in a show perhaps best summed up by its name: "Mortified."Wehrung is 37, single, and claims to have $37 in her bank account.Financially poor maybe, the ensemble real-life characters of "Mortified" are all filthy rich in memories.

    NYPD probing raising of white flags at Brooklyn Bridge

    Tuesday, July 22 2014 10:12 PM EDT2014-07-23 02:12:43 GMT
    The NYPD is investigating a major security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. The flags had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes. The American flags that are normally up at the bridge appeared to have been removed.
