MTV VMAs 2018: Couples on the red carpet

Few likely associate the MTV VMAs with romance, but that didn't stop a slew of stars from turning the annual summer awards show into their personal date night.

Making early waves on the red carpet were Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, who giggled as they ditched the paparazzi by running down the red carpet. (If the video footage is any indication, crew members weren't exactly thrilled by their antics.)

Much more appropriately subdued were Al Sharpton and girlfriend Aisha McShaw, who have been linked since 2013. McShaw is more than 20 years younger than Sharpton, but the two are clearly still going strong despite the age gap.
