Jack Antonoff is living his best life at the MTV VMAs

Katy Perry brought a song of ice and fire to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, which was great for all those poor famous people who couldn't stream the Game of Thrones finale inside the Forum.

Viewers were surprised to see the musician, 33, peel and subsequently eat a banana during Katy's impassioned opening monologue as the show began.

First the A-list producer and songwriter turned up on the night's pre-show ceremony for a performance with his band Bleachers. The actress screenshot their exchange as Antonoff ate in the audience. The bit that drew the most criticism was a part of the evening where she came out on stage with a fake baby strapped to her, in an attempt to say that having a baby was the new "It" trend on social media.


Fans have spoken and it seems the best moment from this year's MTV VMA Awards didn't involve music.

Dunham has famously been by Swift's side, even defending her friend's dating choices to radio legend Howard Stern in February.

Still others wondered if Antonoff was deliberately throwing shade at host Perry, who has a well-known rivalry with Taylor Swift - whom Antonoff has frequently collaborated with, including on Swift's new single "Look What You Made Me Do".
