Lady Gaga defends One Direction at VMAs

Lady Gaga won the hearts of One Direction fans after she stormed out in protest at the crowd booing the boy band winning Best Song of the Summer award at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Justin Timberlake was the big winner of the night taking home four awards and performing with old bandmates N Sync.

However, it was Miley Cyrus' duet with Robin Thicke that caused the most controversy. The former child star gyrated around the stage in a skin-tight PVC two piece.
