The 21-year-old social media star was reportedly sending a message to her longtime boyfriend Jake Paul by attending the VMAs with a Boa constrictor instead of him. There are rumors swirling that her “unofficial husband” cheated on her with his ex, fellow American YouTuber Erika Costell.

Accompanied by a snake handler, Tana told Fox News that it’s all for a good cause. “She’s super happy to be here; we’re just chilling,” Mongeau told the conservative pay television news channel on the carpet.

“The snake company that I’m working with, all of the proceeds and the money that they earn goes to rescuing a lot of snakes, especially out here on the East Coast,” she added. “It’s really cool and I’m super excited to be working with them.”

Also called the red-tailed boa or the common boa, the boa constrictor is a species of large, non-venomous, heavy-bodied snake that is frequently kept and bred in captivity.

Styled by Tyler Lambert, Tana completed her look from the Italian fashion designer with matching gloves and a chained sculptured ceramic golden belt.

Britney Spears performed ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’ with a snake at the 2001 Video Music Awards.

Nominated for Best New Artist and Best R&B for “Could’ve Been” featuring Bryson Tiller, American singer-songwriter H.E.R. also paid homage to Britney’s legendary reptile moment at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
