3. This adorable brotherly celebration between Nick and Joe Jonas happened, and Sophie was basically me in the background of any social situation:

4. Oh, and Sophie iconically sipped tea with Alex Morgan. This is meaningful because Sophie defended Alex for celebrating her US Women's Soccer win by sipping tea, which was inspired by Sophie herself.

To summarize, Sophie was mayor of the VMAs, essentially.

5. Meanwhile, Joe posed with Lil Nas X...
