My feelings were pretty much echoed by Rapper Busta Rhymes though. When Busta commented on the situation, “The truth is undisputed. It ain’t what they used to be as far as supporting the music, you know what I’m sayin’?
Can’t we all just get along?
Apparently not, because there are a few VMA attendee’s that just wanted to kick. Well at least give a good talking too. There were however, a few positive eye watery moments too. I have so much to say, so settle in!
Winner: Selena Gomez
Loser: Justin Beiber
First let’s me just say Selena Gomez is adorable, but her boyfriend Justin Beiber is a complete tool. This adorable girl was trying to work the Pre-Show and Beiber could not keep his hands off her.
Dude! You’re 17, we don’t want to see that. Your 19 year old girl friend was trying to work and be professional. Have some class!
Your snakes name is Johnson? What, are you like 16? Oh wait, you are.
Later after Chris Brown’s performance you can see the Bieb mouth, “That’s my Boy”. Ok, Justin, Chris Brown is so not your boy. Selena, RUN!!!
Winner, but ultimately a LOSER: Tyler, The Creator
Let’s talk quickly about Best New Artist Nominee and Winner Tyler, The Creator. Why does someone with such an adorable little baby face have to be so hateful? Stop trying to start drama with other musicians, (ie Bruno Mars). Stop with the homophobic slurs. You’re only showing your ignorance.
Second, Tyler, an entourage is so 2003. A strong Hip Hop artist doesn’t need one! Look at Jay-Z, Kanye, Drake, and even Eminem. They don’t hit that stage with an entourage anymore. Put on your big boy pants (or just pull your own up) and take that stage like you deserve to be there.
Winner: Jo Calderone aka Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga opened the show as Jo Calderone and performed You and I. She didn’t break character through the whole show. Ok, maybe once. After trying to get Britney Spears to kiss her, she and Brit had giggle moment when the lights were going down.
Gaga’s, Born This Way, also won for Best Video with a message. She did get a little choked up a couple times while she gave her acceptance speech. Good for you Gaga!
Winners: Beyonce and Jay-Z
After a fun performance Beyonce dropped her mic, unbuttoned her jacket and rubbed her cute belly. Congrats to Jay-Z and Beyonce!
Losers: Kayne and Jay-Z
I know I just said Jay-Z was a winner, but I can be a bit bi-polar.
I have to say Kayne and Jay-Z’s performance was AWFUL!!!! What was that?
I do need to give a big thumbs up to Jay-Z for not standing applauding for Chris Brown. We know where his allegiance is.
Winners: Foo Fighters
Not just for winning Best Rock Video of the year, but because they’re the Foo Fighters. They rock!
Winner: Katy Perry
She is adorable and she won Video of the Year. I love that her hubby got all teary eye’d when she thanked him. Love Love Love
She has such an amazing voice.
Quick note to all you boys out there. You better make sure you start treating the girls you date better. You never know, you could be dating the next Adele or Taylor Swift. Do you really want to end up in a song that tells the world you suck.
Loser: Lil Wayne
Normally, I like a little Lil Wayne, but last night, not so much. His auto tuned mic was ridiculous. His pants around knees? Another fashion miss. Didn’t that go out of style around the same time entourages did?
Winner: Britney Spears
I think she may be back! Last night was the first time in a long time that I actually saw that sparkle back in her eyes. Not only did she win best Pop Video, but she was also awarded with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
I personally loved how excited Gaga was when she was introducing the Award.
Winner: Young the Giant
This Irvine CA local band, gave an amazing performance! I can’t wait to download their album today.
With so many winning moments, why would I give the VMA’s a thumbs down? Because it’s not what it use to be. The show doesn’t pull the super stars it use too. I’m not just saying that just because JT wasn’t there.
Where was P Diddy, Pink, J-Lo, Rihanna, and Eminiem? I mean, come on, only one Jonas brother showed up. Shouldn’t that be saying something?
What happened to such iconic performances like Britney’s “I’m a Slave”, Madonna’s “I’m a Virgin”, P Diddy’s tribue to Biggie, Eminiem’s The Real Slim Shady, or even Rage Against the Machine bassistTim Commerford climbing the scaffolding of the set. There were no moments like that this year.
The VMA’s and Grammy’s use to be my favorite 2 nights of television. What happened MTV? Maybe Adam Levine is right.
So what is your favorite VMA moment from the past.
