Snakes and stage slips: There's drama and the MTV Video Music Awards haven't even begun yet.

Days before the big show, Iggy Azalea slipped offstage while performing at a MTV benefit concert. On the same day, MTV News reports, a boa constrictor bit a background dancer during a rehearsal for Nicki Minaj's performance of "Anaconda." And a show worker fell from one of the winding, sloping platforms on the stage at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

The drama is helping the popular awards show trend on social media even before an award is handed out, though trophies often take a back seat at the VMAs, which are all about the moments. Sunday's show will feature Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande.
