Happy Hump Day! I’m Rania Aniftos for Billboard News. It’s Wednesday, Sept. 13, and everyone’s been talking about that VMA backstage moment. Let’s put those rumors to rest. Was there drama backstage at the MTV VMAs between Megan Thee Stallion and Justin Timberlake? A video circulating online looks like there might have been, but looks can be deceiving.
The VMAs were full of surprises on stage, but there was a lot going on backstage as well. In a moment captured on a Backstage Cam, you can see Megan Thee Stallion getting touch-ups when Justin Timberlake and Joey Fatone walked by smiling. It appears that Megan is waving her finger and yelling at JT for something. Yelling, yes but not for bad reasons. Sources close to the rapper say Justin said “Nice to meet you” to Meg, and she responded with a “No, no, no. We’ve got to meet proper. This don’t count. This don’t count.” You can’t trust everything you see. What looked nasty was nothing but love. Meg posted a TikTok showing after the award show the two got their proper meeting, captioning the post, “I just talked with my hands lol.”
