What could this mysterious off-camera jester have said? An investigation

The VMAs happened last night, and soon they will disappear into the content ether where they belong. But let us never forget about this photo taken at the afterparty at Pasquale Jones.

In what blessedly looks like a gorgeous oil painting come to life, we have straight titans of music laughing hilariously at we know not what. We've got Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Cassie, Swizz Beatz, Jay Z, Kanye West, and Diddy wild with mirth.

What are they laughing at, though?

The idea that Beyoncé lost an award to Fifth Harmony?

"Anyone know if Taylor's coming tonight?"

Did Nick Jonas ask if he could sit with them?

"Will we ever get confirmation about Drake and Rihanna's relationship??"

"Is 'Fade' was going to be released anywhere besides Tidal?"

"Why there were no Jay Z reaction shots to Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' performance?"

"Beyoncé, you were a great opening act for Britney!"

"Beyoncé, do you think anyone will ever break your VMA record?"

And who does that mysterious elbow belong to?! Is this part of the mystery? DID THE ELBOW SAY SOMETHING?

We may never find out what exactly they were laughing about, so we'll just have to be satisfied with blowing this picture up to life-size to pull up a chair and pretend you were there and in on the joke.
