Yo Brooklyn!

MTV VMA's to air live from Barclays Center


The Moonman has landed in Brooklyn.MTV's hot Video Music Awards show will be held at the Barclays Center this year.Music-industry favorites will get their VMA Moonman statues Aug. 25 at the brand-new arena, which opened late last year as host to the Nets.“Brooklyn is home to icons like the Cyclone in Coney Island and the Brooklyn Bridge,” said a beaming Mayor Bloomberg. “And now it can lay claim to the MTV ‘Video Music Awards.’ Bringing the VMAs to Brooklyn will mean hundreds of jobs.’’

“From hip-hop to hipsters, Jay Z to MGMT, Brooklyn musicians have a long history of dominating the ‘spotlight’ on MTV,” said Borough President Marty Markowitz. “Brooklyn is a cultural Mecca—the hippest, coolest place for young people across the country.”
