AOL.com's Snapshot: The stories you need to see
The chaos leading up to Sunday night's VMAs was calamitous -- even for MTV's standards. Viewers got an eye-full of Nicki Minaj, saw Taylor Swift "Shake It Off" and watched what happens when stars give their stylists the night off. It goes without saying that Beyonce owned the night as she accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Everyone bow down now.
Burger King is contemplating a move to the Great White North. The fast-food giant is in talks to buy Canadian doughnut chain Tim Horton's in a merger that would shave off a substantial portion of their tax bill. The company is currently based in Miami, but would reportedly move its headquarters in what's called a "tax inversion deal," according to Fortune. Talk about having it your way.
