    The 2017 Video Music Awards bestowed P!nk with its highest honor, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for her trailblazing impact on music, pop culture, fashion and philanthropy. Known for her boundary-breaking and rebellious nature, P!nk’s legacy spans a 17-year long career as a powerhouse vocalist and performer. The prolific singer/songwriter has created some of the most memorable pop songs and music videos of our time from “Don’t Let me Get Me” and “Try,” to “F**kin’ Perfect” and “Trouble.” She’s taken home six VMAs to date and has continued to light up the VMA stage with her unparalleled acrobats and evocative live performances. P!nk's showstopping performance at this year's VMAs included an awe-inspiring medley of her greatest hits including "So What," "Just Give Me a Reason" and brand new single "What About Us." Delivering a powerful acceptance speech about individuality and self-acceptance, P!nk reminded us all to be our true selves.
