MTV Video Music Awards Behind The Scenes Photos

Taylor Swift's new music video wasn't the only thing worth looking at during last night's MTV Video Music Awards ... check out what was going down backstage.

Rappers were hanging out with pop stars ... Katy Perry was doing crazy costume changes and Ellen was posing for pics with EVERYBODY!

The award show itself didn't have any angry Kanye interruptions or Britney Spears dancing with a snake -- but there was still plenty of action behind the scenes at the moon man ceremony.

Ludacris' Baby Mama He Hasn't Seen His Daughter Yet

Breaking News

Ludacris is in no hurry to meet his new baby daughter ... it's been nearly a month since the girl was born, and his baby mama says the rapper still hasn't dropped by to take a look.

Tamika Fuller just posted a long message on Instagram, writing, "She has yet to meet her father and it's unfortunate because I would never keep him from seeing her."

She also addresses the back and forth in court regarding Ludacris' ability to pay child support, insisting she's not looking for a handout. "It saddens me that it has come to this. I did not file on him. Nor would I ever try to attempt to extort my child's father."

She adds, "In spite of all that has already happened I just ask that the negativity stop towards him and I. We have a child to co-parent ... Her best interests come before any of all of this foolishness."

As we reported, Ludacris -- a multi-millionaire -- has filed legal docs saying he can only afford to pay $1,744 per month in child support.

Rihanna Did She Call Drake an 'A-Hole' at the VMAs?

Now, we're not professional lip-readers ... but we could SWEAR Rihanna referred to Drake and his posse as a bunch of "a**holes" when they won an MTV VMA award last night.

Check out the video ... moments after Drake, Lil' Wayne, Nicki Minaj and the rest of the crew walk to the stage to accept the award for Best Hip-Hop Video ... the camera cuts to a close-up shot of Rihanna.

Rihanna mouths some words to the person sitting next to her ... it appears she says, "I hate these a**holes."

Rihanna -- who was sitting just a few seats down from Drake -- also refused to clap for the rapper when they announced his name and even turned her head so she wouldn't have to look at him.

No surprise since Rihanna is tight with Chris Brown ... whose face was busted up during that crazy NYC nightclub brawl back in June.

Then again ... maybe she was just talking about "these rascals?"

Rihanna Kisses and Hugs Chris Brown at MTV VMAs

The biggest moment at the MTV VMAs wasn't aired on TV ... it was captured on a live Internet feed ... when Rihanna approached Chris Brown on her way to her seat and gave him a HUG AND A KISS.

It all happened live on MTV's "VIP Seating Cam" -- Rihanna made a beeline for Brown before the show ... and when she got close, Brown stood up and then Rihanna kissed him on the cheek.

The two then hugged each other ... and when it was over, Rihanna walked back to her seat.

It's the first time we've seen the two actually touching each other since the infamous beating incident back in 2009 ... the night before the Grammys.

Recently, Rihanna has been opening up about her feelings for Brown ... telling Oprah she still cares about him ... calling him "the love of my life."
