What’d You Think of the VMAs?
Now that we’ve had a day or two to digest everything that went on at Sunday’s VMAs….what do you think?! How do you feel?
The star-studded awards show surely didn’t disappoint. Well, actually, wait, that’s not entirely true. I’m not a Chelsea Handler fan so I thought there could have been a better choice of host, but other than that, I thought it was a fun show. There wasn’t any big hooplah surprise as there was last year (coughKANYEINTERRUPTSTAYLORcough), but since they both addressed what happened at the 2009 VMAs, I guess that’s something…right?
There also weren’t any surprises when it came to the winners. Eminem took home quite a few for “Not Afraid” and “Love the Way You Lie” with Rihanna (who made a surprise appearance to perform the #1 song with Eminem). The big winner of the night was Lady Gaga, who received 8 awards for her “Bad Romance” video, including Video of the Year. I have to say, I whole-heartedly agree with those wins. I think the “Bad Romance” music video is one of the best of all-time. (Clearly not up to “Thriller” standards, but what is?)
What else? Oh yeah, did you like Taylor Swift’s new song, directed at Kanye West, or do you think it was a little immature? Maybe I’m just cynical at my ripe-old age of 22, but I would have been over that incident about 8 months ago. Maybe 10.
How good did Katy Perry look, too? She usually has pretty bad fashion/hair choices, but I really liked her mini dress and her longer hair. I wish she would have performed, though! Same with Jared Leto and 30 Seconds to Mars. He looked better than he’s looked in a few years, too. What’s up with that?
And of course, to no one’s surprise, Justin Bieber took home the award for Best New Artist shortly after he performed “Baby” outside the Nokia Theater. He was up against Kesha, Jason Derulo…who else? I can’t remember now. Sorry, whoever I forgot!
