"What a lovely performance by @Rihanna!" Gaga tweeted yesterday, after watching the Bajan star perform "We Found Love' and a remix of her song 'Cockiness'. "I feel like I'm sixteen again watching the VMAs, and then I remember I get to do this too. #socrazy.

The 'You & I' singer also praised Frank Ocean's performance, saying the R&B singer was able to "steal this whole show", as well as praising rock band Green Day, before congratulating Rihanna on winning Video Of The Year for 'We Found Love'.

She posted: "What a lovely night, we found love 4 the win! Was all sorts of awesome watching this at home like I did when I was a kid."
