So I am watching the VMAs tonight and instead of posting lots of random thoughts on Facebook, I'll save them for my blog....
1 - Chelsea Handler - Hilarious. I bet there are a lot of mad celebrities, but oh well. Thanks for being funny.
2 - Eminem - Welcome back. And hello red-flaming-fake-hair Rihanna.
3 - Justin Bieber - Ohmygosh. You can actually dance! And sing at the same time! Maybe you're not a fad...maybe I am now a Bieber fan??
4 - Usher. Wow. Wowowowowowowowoowow. Or, Oh My Gosh.
5 - Florence & The Machine - Love your album. Appreciate your performance - even more so that it came right after Usher's techno-amazing-dance-extravaganza.
6 - Lady Gaga - Of course you are going to win lots of VMAs for "Bad Romance". So why wear unwearable clothing?
7 - Why do we need stats on Twitter updates for the VMAs? There is something wrong with that - I can't quite put my finger on why it feels wrong, but it just seems wrong. Or more like, why should I care?
8 - Random N.E.R.D. & Ciara performance in the middle of commercials? Shameless bad marketing technique.
9 - Taylor-frickin'-Swift - Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. Like Kayne West is looking for a pity song from you? Please - why don't you learn how to sing? I'm sorry all you Taylor fans out there - I. Am. Not. A. Fan.
10 - UGH - JUSTIN JT TIMBERLAKE WHY ARE YOU NOT PERFORMING INSTEAD OF PRESENTING!!! PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER ALBUM AGAIN. And please stop me from continually begging for this!
11 - Drake, Swizz Beatz, and Mary J. Blige - Awesome. What a hip-hop performance should be with three uber-talented people.
12 - Dumb Jared Leto. I hate 30 Seconds to Mars and emo-Jared Leto and his eyeliner and his shout-out to the "fans" - excuse me Jared, were these the same fans that you stood up on your tour with MuteMath - a band that actually has talent and innovation?
13 - What must it be like to be a member of the Jersey Shore cast? To get lots of money for doing nothing but sitting in a hot tub together, joking about STDs that you have?
14 - I'm not upset that Justin Bieber just won Best New Artist...ohmygosh, he has won me over! My identity is in crisis!!
15 - Really Cher, really? I don't know whether my eyes are offended and appalled or if I admire your chutzpah to wear that at your age, which is....???
16 - Thank YOU Aziz Ansari, for putting the Kayne/Taylor thing in perspective - It WAS hilarious!!
17 - Welcome back Kayne. I've missed you.
Apologies for taking so long to put up another post. I didn't realize it had been almost a month since my last post - I will promise to try to not do that again!
