I’m going to make this short…because clearly the event that occured late last night was torture enough. Just kidding, or maybe I’m not. Who knows, I could have very well enjoyed it. What am I talking about, of course I enjoyed it. I love awful things!
I’ve said before that I’m pretty sure my cat (and my dog) are better than most of society. I am glad that the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards has proven that yet again. As you very well know by now, there is horrible and then there is MTV. And even then there is this period near the end of August when MTV broadcasts the live awards event that destroys everything good and holy. It’s for the naive audience and for those who have nothing else to do. Who knew celebrities were so bored with life.
From Jessie J‘s horrid screeching before and after every commercial break to little person, Kevin Hart‘s awkward comedic opening. Oh, did I say comedic? Sorry. Clearly I meant tragic. I’m not sure what made me think this year’s VMA‘s would be interesting, when the last seven years have been epicly ridiculous. And I mean that in every negative way.
Is there any saving graces? Yes. Thanks to Adele and Beyonce. Both of their performances were stunning, and please tell me that baby bump wasn’t planned specifically for the VMA‘s. Part of me thought about it. Hilarious. Adele is always fabulous, but it still saddened me that she was there. Save yourself, and head back over to the UK! And hey, Queen‘s Brian May was there…YAY! And if you were excited for that teaser trailer for Twilight‘s heir, The Hunger Games…well, you know how well that went down.
Other awful things ranged from a man portraying himself as Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian‘s tragically awkward presentation, Britney Spears pretty much being forced to connect her acceptance of the Video Vanguard Award with presenting Beyonce (that was rude), Katie Holmes randomly showing up after years of unrealized absense (finally gettin’ them high-class gigs, huh?), the Katy Perry and Kanye West acceptance speech (more of MTV‘s trademark awkwardness), and of course MTV‘s regular poorly written and delivered banter between random celebrities who plainly looked as though they wanted to go home.
Rick Ross was painting like Bob Ross…hilarious, right? Chris Brown did his thing, same as ever year. And Lil Wayne even did his thing. Who else performed? I was weaving in and out, I’m not sure. That was the best worst two-hours of my life. And can I just say how much I loved that as Dave Grohl (of The Foo Fighters) accepted his award as Best Rock Video, he beseeched the audience to “never lose faith in rock & roll.” And then, cut to LMFAO. Wow…There is much more I can say about yesterday’s epic night, but I won’t out of courtesy to you guys…You’re welcome. I mean, even Justin Bieber (who resembled an elderly lady who just finished some frantic jewlery shopping). Not impressed, Biebes? Darn!
But I have to admit that I did enjoy the Amy Winehouse tribute, for the most part. Russel Brand knew Amy Winehouse and Tony Bennett is so excited that her voice just so happens to be on his upcoming album. At least Bruno Mars’ performance was pretty good. In case you missed it, MTV will be showing non-stop reruns of the showing I’m sure for the next half month. Enjoy! 1 out of 5 stars!
All I can say is that MTV finally had a great VMA‘s. I’m only kidding of course. Just know I’m not bashing celebrities for being a part of this over and over again, but I am a bit confused. Why?
