One Love, One Heart
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis -- who won Moonmen for Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Video With a Social Message -- struck a poignant note at the VMAs when they took the stage with Mary Lambert and surprise guest Jennifer Hudson to sing their song "Same Love," about marriage equality. "I've been writing songs since I was like 15 years old, and out of every single song I have ever written, this is the most important," the rapper said. "Gay rights are human rights. There is no separation."
