Where’s the party at? Nominees Beyonce and Jay Z skip the MTV VMAs… but can’t resist the after-party
It’s one of the music industry’s biggest nights of the year.
However, despite being nominated, neither Beyonce or Jay Z attended the MTV Video Music Awards.
While skipping the big event at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York, the pair were in the mood to party afterwards at the PH-D Rooftop.

The couple were spotted arriving at the Dream Downtown hotel in lower Manhattan for the late-night bash after the VMAs wrapped over the Hudson River.
Beyonce showed off her figure in a black dress with sheer circular panels, which she teamed with a pair of vertiginous high heels.
Meanwhile, she had styled her new shorter hair in soft blonde curls flowing naturally.

The couple attended the party alongside their showbiz friends, including Rihanna, Rita Ora and Justin Timberlake.
Justin had earlier won four moonmen awards, including Video Of The Year, Michael Jackson Video Vanguard, Best Direction and Best Editing.
Director David Fincher picked up Best Direction for the video to Justin and Jay Z’s duet Suit & Tie.

Meanwhile, Beyonce was nominated for Best Video With A Social Message for I Was Here, but was beaten to it by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Mary Lambert, Same Love.
Also opting for black at the PH-D party was Rihanna, who had earlier attended the ceremony itself in a very casual combo of T-shirt and jeans.
However, Jay Z protogee Rita swapped her dramatic red carpet gown with long train for a flirty little red number.
