Today is the day! The MTV Video Music Awards are hosting their award show in Newark at the Prudential Center tonight! Yet, the festivities began to take place prior to the event, so this week we’re doing our #HipNJ weekend recap, VMAs style!
To start off, America’s sweetheart Taylor Swift made an unexpected appearance at the Target in Jersey City! The singer, who will be attending the awards, came into town a bit early, maybe to pick up a few needed items at everyone’s favorite retailer! Fans who spotted her were able to take pictures with the “Delicate” singer! According to her Instagram, Tay does visit the retailer in various cities as part of “an inventory check” for her latest release, Lover.

On Sunday, the Jonas Brothers made their way down to Asbury Park to film their performance, that will be broadcasted tonight for the VMAs! They first performed their latest hit, “Sucker” inside the legendary Stone Pony. While still performing, the brothers exited the Pony, crossed Ocean Ave, and climbed on a stage right on the boardwalk, between First and Second avenues, all with screaming fans in tow! Once settled on the stage, they began to play their current single, “Happiness Begins” all while fireworks lit up the Jersey Shore sky!
Didn’t make it to the live show? You can catch the performance when it is broadcasted tonight at 8pm on MTV while watching the VMAs live! Maybe if you’re lucky, you can catch one of the stars of the show if you’re in Newark later!
