Last night’s VMAs were huge. At least the stage was. I thought the stage looked amazing, but the acts and artists that I enjoy(ed) were few and far between. I used to get so excited about the VMAs, and I still tune in and watch, but most of the artists being played on MTV I just don’t care about or like. It makes me feel super old… this is bullshit. And for that matter, I’d just like to say, as a side note, that bands like Sublime shouldn’t be being played on Classic Rock radio yet… it’s depressing.
Anyway, here’s what I thought about the VMAs:
It was obviously Lady Gaga’s night.
She won several awards including Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video of the Year.
Like last year’s VMAs, she made several wardrobe changes.
My personal favorite was her first dress from Alexander McQueen.
The second look by Armani was so heavy,
L.G. had difficulty getting on stage for her Best Pop Video award.
Before I could begin to mumble some smart ass comment about her not being able to move,
L.G. admitted to not planning her wardrobe quite well enough for function,
she joked that she wasn’t planning on winning so much.
She donned her final outfit, the meat dress,
when she picked up her Video of the Year award.
The award was presented by: CHER!
How awesome!? This was probably my favorite moment of the night
(mostly because I have the soul of a gay man.)
I mean, it’s CHER for Christ’s sake.
I had heard the song “Dogs Days are Over” before, but only a couple of times,
and not in it’s entirety. Florence and the Machine’s performance of their song
was another favorite moment of mine. I just love her whimsical style!
Ok. Taylor Swift. You make it really difficult for me to like you.
All your songs are about fairy tales and princesses and bullshit.
I actually felt bad when you were interrupted by Kanye at last year’s awards,
(even though I totally agreed with him.), but with this song and the opening video montage to your “devastating” experience last year, I just want to slap you more than ever.
We get it, Kanye hurt your feelings,
but have you really been obsessing over it for the past year?
Ok, let’s look at some clothes.
I didn’t want to, and I still don’t want to like Ke$ha…
but for some reason I do. I hated her outfit though.
I find myself going back and forth about whether I love or hate Katy Perry.
As of recent I don’t care very much for her. I liked her look though.
I guess I love her again.
I’ve always loved Justin Timberlake, and I always will.
I’ve seen him look better than this, I just wanted to include a picture of him.
I just love Emma Stone. So here she is:
I don’t like or give a crap about Ciara, but I thought her dress was pretty awesome.
I thought Ashley Greene was the best looking of the night.
I mean, the girl is just gorgeous, but her outfit was also amazing.
Usher’s performance was cool, but 90% because of the lights.
I loved that Eminem bailed after his show-opening performance.
I’ve heard a lot about Justin Beiber recently but I had never heard or seen him do anything until his performance last night; I’m happy to announce that I am immune to Beiber-Fever.
I hate Linkin Park and all I could think as they were performing was: “God save us” from this bullshit they’re calling metal. and if there’s a rock and roll heaven, the only place Linkin Park will “burn” is in rock and roll hell for all their sins.
I don’t like Paramore’s songs anytime I hear them on the radio. I don’t. But for some reason when I see them perform live, I always enjoy and am impressed with it. (They opened for No Doubt last year and they put on an amazing show!)
Kanye’s performance outfit was ugly.
That’s pretty much all I really thought about the show. Chelsea Handler is always hit or miss with me and it’s too bad she’s not funnier when she’s wasted.
