Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish Troll Quick Engagements and … Fifth Harmony?
The two comedians took the stage to present Best Hip-Hop Video, but quickly stole the show by poking fun at Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson for getting engaged after just a few weeks of dating. “Why are so many celebrities getting engaged? Is there a sale at Bed, Bath and Beyond that I didn’t hear about?” the Girls Trip star quipped. “Is that why y’all doing this? Is there a special on Groupon?” Kaddish also threw shade at Fifth Harmony. “Camila Cabello … is nominated for five VMAs tonight. Five of ’em!” Haddish said after struggling to pronounce the singer’s name. “I’m super proud of her. So, those of you watching at home: Hi, Fifth Harmony!”
