My MTV VMA Red Carpet Experience

Thanks to 1iota (an awesome company that gets fans up close at some of the biggest events), I got the chance to be a part of this year's MTV Video Music Awards action in Brooklyn. I got to be a part of the audience to stand along the red carpet as the stars arrived for the big event. I was super excited. It was a long day, but well worth the waiting in the intense heat amongst tons of other people. I ended up in a pretty good spot and saw some of my faves up close and personal.

It was honestly such an inspiration being there on the carpet across from the journalists who I hope to be someday. My dream would be to be on that side of the carpet, interviewing the stars, rather than just as a fan — but I'm definitely not complaining, I still had an amazing time!

Highlights from the carpet:
- Got a high-five from Robin Thicke
- Saw the legendary Daft Punk
- Breathed the same air as Pharrell
- Witnessed a moment between 2 Chainz and Richard Simmons

 In my element...seriously, I was so happy.

Ariana Grande is so adorable. She did a pre-show performance on the carpet. Have you heard her new album 'Yours Truly'?! She's actually so talented.

 2 Chainz & Richard Simmons - adorbs
 Rita Ora, stunning as always

 A$AP Rocky

 The one and only Lady Gaga. She had a huge entourage of paparazzi and it literally looked like the seas had parted as soon as she stepped on the carpet. It was madness, and everyone else sort've just moved to the side

 Robin Thicke

Wow, what a night. Although I didn't get to be inside Barclays for the actual show, the red carpet experience was quite satisfying.
