No, not Kanye & Taylor – although they still managed to steal the spotlight at some point. I’m talking about Eminem & Gaga. With the latter taking home 8 Moonmans (moonmen?) including Video of the Year, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video for “Bad Romance”, she proves to be an unstoppable force. Eminem bagged Best Male Video and Best Rap Video for “Not Afraid”. Bieber managed to take Best New Artist against Ke$ha & Nicki Minaj. The Jared Leto band 30 Seconds To Mars won for Best Rock Video which I think should’ve went to Paramore.
Chelsea Lately comedian, Chelsea Handler, hosted the night including a stint with Lindsay Lohan. West’s performance was one of the show’s highlights, also Eminem and surprise appearance of Rihanna. Swift performed a song for Kanye. And Gaga, same as last year, had a couple of outfit changes including the meat dress above. Believe it.
On the very refreshing white carpet, I thought Gaga, strangely enough, looked a bit tamed but fabulous! One of her best looks in her career.
I have to admit, the boys look good. Usher & Justin Bieber share the spotlight. Hot!
I love this dress and I love Katy Perry!!! Not so sure about the highlights though.
Btw. Chelsea claimed that last night’s VMAs is the one of the highest rated since 2002. Congrats to her then! And good job for MTV.
VMA ratings higher than 17% this year; the highest in 5 years, thanks to Mr. West.
But no thanks.
Kanye’s ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) triggered once again and what’s silly is that he wasn’t even nominated for that category and yet he still had something to say. I understand if he has qualms on not winning but damn that was Best Female Video for crying out loud! I’m sure you’ve heard about him taking Taylor’s winning moment when he interrupted during her speech. It even brought about several jokes on the net. It was funny btw. I remembered Beyonce’s shocked reaction, she was like: “Oh, Kanye!” It was really nice when she let Taylor have her moment again when the former won for Video of the Year (well-deserved!). Although some were saying these were all staged, I doubt it. Kanye’s a douchebag even in real life, wait a jerk too and an asshole.
Another crazy thing that happened that night was Lady GaGa. I don’t know what to do with her anymore, I know she’s a self-confessed attention whore but what the hell were she wearing!!! Ugh, I mean I love her and her music but… when she does things like that. Tsk, I’m just glad she won for Best New Artist. As well as Britney’s Womanizer for Best Pop Video, kind of stupid she wasn’t nominated for the Female category.
All in all, the VMAs was such a blast once again. Janet’s performace was amazing I wish she had lengthen it. Madonna’s tribute speech for MJ was surprisingly good, for a moment I thought she will make it all about her. I wished B performed another song, as much as I loved Single Ladies but that was like so last year already! And I didn’t like the changes she made either. As with GaGa, she murdered the song once again. Paparazzi is one of my favorite songs from her and I was disappointed with the video and this performance.
Okay that’s it, til next year then. 🙂
This year the VMAs are back to Radio City Music Hall in NYC which will be hosted by Russell Brand for the 2nd consecutive year. I think it’s the first time that’s happened, I guess the producers really liked last year’s “Jonas Brothers – purity rings” jokes. And well, Brand will be given the chance to diss Bush again. Based on the nominations released earlier, it’s either goin’ to be Lady Gaga’s or Beyonce’s night tying with 9 noms each. With live performances from Green Day, Muse, Pink and Taylor Swift and presentors among others, Katy Perry and Chace Crawford, it will be one unforgettable night. Mark your calendars: September 13.
This is going to be an amazing show, as always. Among all award shows, this probably is my most anticipated! Known to be star-studded and controversial, this year will not be an exception. I’m pretty hyped out already. The list of nominees and categories are as follows: (read after the jump)
