Even Ray J and Amber Rose got shout outs.

Kanye ended up using 7 minutes of the 4 he was originally given, and the crowd -- especially Kim -- loved every bit of it.

8/28/2016 7:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears just slayed the stage at the MTV VMAs.

Tim Commerford Colin Kaepernick is 'Rage' Worthy

8/28/2016 12:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Colin Kaepernick is getting some big time support over his national anthem controversy ... because Tim Commerford thinks the QB is a straight "badass."

The bassist for "Rage Against the Machine" was leaving the London in NYC Sunday when he applauded Kaepernick for standing up for his beliefs, knowing there may be repercussions.

He even says the San Fran QB has an open invitation to join his new group, "Prophets of Rage."

Commerford is no stranger to public protests -- he famously climbed a wall during the 2000 VMA's to protest Limp Bizkit beating them out for Best Rock Video.  

BTW ... he's still not over the loss.

Kanye West No Rehearsal Hours Before VMA Performance

8/28/2016 11:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0828-kanye-west-tmz-01Kanye West's MTV VMA performance is shrouded in so much secrecy, he hasn't even taken the stage for a 'run through' ...  just hours before the live awards show kicks off.

Our sources backstage at the VMA's tell us, unlike other artists, Yeezy has not performed a rehearsal of whatever the hell he plans to do on stage, and "nobody knows what he's doing."

However ... we're told execs aren't too worried because they know Kanye delivers when it counts.

As we previously reported, Kanye gets 4 minutes to do whatever he wants, including talking, rapping, dancing, or even just staring at the crowd.

With no rehearsals yet ... the latter ain't looking too bad.

Jennifer Lopez Something Old, Something New?

8/28/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez is a smart, savvy celeb who knows exactly what she's doing ... so there's gotta be something to the fact that she made a surprise appearance during her ex-husband's concert just days after 86ing her BF.

Jennifer stunned the Radio City Music Hall crowd Saturday night during Marc Anthony's "Private Collection" concert.  She sang with him -- in Spanish -- and gave him a big hug when the song ended.

0828-marc-anthony-jlo-youtube-05Just two weeks ago, Marc showed up for JLo's Vegas concert.

It's gotta be hard for Casper Smart, who's in NYC trying to resurrect his relationship with JLo.

0828-playboy-mansion-tmz-launch-01Hugh Hefner made a rare appearance at the Midsummer Night's Dream party at the soon-to-be-sold Playboy Mansion.

Truth be told ... the event was celeb light -- only a handful showed up.  Kris Humphries, Too Short, Alan Thicke and a few others mingled.  But lots of hot chicks.

This is Hef's last stand as the owner of the Mansion.  It sold to 32-year-old businessman Daren Metropoulos.  Hef has a right to live out his life there before Daren comes in with a sledge hammer.
