(Reuters) - Seven people were arrested on Sunday at the Made in America music festival in downtown Los Angeles, following an opening day that left more than two dozen people in handcuffs, police said. During Sunday's show at Grand Park there were four felony arrests, including one for battery and the rest for possession of narcotics, besides three misdemeanor arrests, including one charge of public drunkenness, the Los Angeles Police Department said. Another 23 people were given alcohol citations, an LAPD police spokeswoman said. So far about 27,000 tickets have been scanned for Sunday's full day of events, including top-billed stars John Mayer and Kanye West later in the evening.

Pop shock diva Miley Cyrus won Video of the Year for "Wrecking Ball" at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards outside Los Angeles, which gave pride of place to the rising generation of pop stars. The music video for "Wrecking Ball" was directed by fashion photographer Terry Richardson -- known for an erotic style -- and shows the 21-year-old singer in skin-tight white underwear and cropped top, swinging suggestively from a wrecking ball. The former idol of tween girls around the world for her role in the television series "Hanna Montana" shattered her good-girl image when she performed last year at the Video Music Awards in a flesh-toned bikini and bent over and gyrated provocatively with singer Robin Thicke.
Miley Cyrus won the award for Video of the Year for her hit single "Wrecking Ball," at Sunday's 2014 MTV Video Music Awards outside Los Angeles. The singer beat out Beyonce and her husband JayZ, nominated for "Drunk in Love," as well as Iggy Azalea featuring Charli XCV for "Fancy," and Pharrell Williams for "Happy," and Sia for "Chandelier." Cyrus, who sparked a furor at last year's MTV awards show with her controversial "twerking" on stage, avoided scandal this year. Rapper Drake won Best Hip-Hop Video for "Hold On (We're Going Home)," which had also been contested by Canadian duo Majid Jordan.
