YOU WANT YOUR MTV, AND PARAMOUNT+ HAS IT

The VMAs Are Here! Prepare Yourself Emotionally With These Crying GIFs!

Your general emotional stability and Tumblr will thank us.

What's got a nose and two tear ducts and is completely unprepared for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards tonight? Give up? IT'S YOU. If you looked up the word "prepared" in the dictionary, your picture would be nowhere to be found. If you were to watch SpongeBob sing his "I'm ready! I'm ready!" song right now, you'd be all, "Hmmmm, I can't relate." YOU ARE NOT READY AT ALL. Got it? Good.

Don't give up, though, because there's still one way that you can properly prepare your emotions for the completely out-of-control performances by Nicki Minaj and 5 Seconds Of Summer, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which will be bestowed upon Beyonce, Nicki Minaj's big VMA performance, and everything else you're about to witness: this pile of crying GIFs below. They just might be your only hope.

Resistance is futile. Let the weeping commence.

Charli XCX is performing at the VMA Pre-Show. I'm, like, so proud of her.

Fifth Harmony are thirsty for no bae at the Pre-Show, and it's so inspiring. I'm inspired.

Beyoncé is in my line of vision. Drenched in tears.

Actually drowning in tears. Swimming through my own emotional output.

And it's not funny.

[image src="wp-attachment://1909342" title="vma-crying-19" alt="vma-crying-19"]

Oh, and in case you have no emotions, just smear some mascara under your eyes to avoid suspicion.

Who wants to start weeping now? Everybody? Cool. Watch this footage from 5SOS' VMA rehearsal.
