NEW YORK (AP) -- The Video Music Awards are taking a road trip to Brooklyn.
MTV's showcase awards show is traditionally held in Los Angeles or Manhattan.
This year the show will be held Aug. 25 at the new Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets and the site of recent Rolling Stones and Jay-Z multi-night concerts.
MTV will celebrate 30 years of the VMAs this year. From Kanye West and Taylor Swift to the Madonna-Britney Spears-Christina Aguilera kiss, the show has become known more for its pop culture moments than the winners of its signature Moonman trophies.
The VMAs were last held in New York in 2009 and have been in Los Angeles since.
