By the time I got home last night from my camping weekend trip, I was too exhausted to watch the MTV Music Video Awards. I finally got around to checking out the telecast this afternoon. Thankfully, for the power of digital recording devices, I was able to go through the entire program in half the time. Overall, it wasn’t a bad show with a handful of highlights. Check out my top five takeaways from the 2013 MTV VMAs below.
Justin Timberlake Has A Bigger Ego Than Beyonce
Let me preface this by saying I love Justin Timberlake, but was a tad disappointed with him last night. The night was pretty much catered to him. He had a boatload of nominations going into the ceremony and was being bestowed with the prestigious Michael Jackson Vanguard Award.
With so much attention already on him, you’d think he would’ve give his ‘N Sync band members more time in the spotlight than 30 seconds. Even Beyonce, gave Michelle Williams a couple shots at a solo during the Super Bowl. I would’ve rather had a longer ‘N Sync medley instead of a “Senorita” segment. Don’t you agree? With that being said, JT killed it during his entire performance.
Miley Cyrus Has Big Balls
Say what you will about Miley Cyrus, but girl isn’t afraid of anything. While her performance was extremely pitchy, I thoroughly enjoyed watching her twerk for Robin Thicke, finger herself with a giant foam finger and just act bat sh*t crazy on stage. I loved every minute of it.
Naturally, not everyone loved the “We Can’t Stop” singer’s performance. The Parents Television Council hated it, Brooke Shields called her “desperate” on the Today Show, while Kelly Clarkson tweeted “pitchystrippers.” OH, SHE CAME THAT WAY!!! LOL. Clarkson didn’t directly call out Cyrus, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who she’s referring to. Oh, and if you haven’t seen Will Smith and his kids’ reaction to the performance… GOOGLE IT. Their facial reactions are priceless.
Macklemore Is One Super Sexy Ginger
Forget Prince Harry. Macklemore should be the poster child for world’s sexiest ginger. He looked insanely hot in his light blue suit. Dude got even sexier when he rapped his little heart out during his LGBT anthem “Same Love.” Bonus points for bringing out Jennifer Hudson to accompany him and Mary Lambert on the track.
Taylor Swift Is One Bitter Beyotch
I wanna like Taylor Swift, but she’s making it extremely harder to do so as each day passes. She’s coming off as a self-entitled spoiled brat as of late. From eye rolls to last night’s incident, someone needs to check this girl before she wrecks herself.
While One Direction was presenting an award, she was clearly seen saying “shut the f*ck up” to bestie Selena Gomez. Best part of it, was Gomez’s instant reaction of looking up at the big screen to see if the cameras were on her. Who knew the “Slow Dance” singer was so savvy? If Swift is bitter now, can you imagine how she’ll be at age 40 and single? YIKES!!!
Lady Gaga Is A Class Act
After One Direction received several boos from the audience (and Swift’s ire), the “Applause” singer gave them a few words of support. “I want to leave right now,” Gaga told the group backstage. “I don’t want to stay anymore because I don’t want to be in a room where people are booing.” I just want to tell you that deserve every bit of success that you have,” she said.
Bravo Gaga for being classy and also for the widely riveting opening number. Girlfriend let it all hang out.
