2013 VMAs Recap


Last night MTV put aside their regularly scheduled programming of teenagers creating sketchy dating aliases and popping out babies to focus on their namesake: music. If you missed the VMAs last night, I'm sorry because they certainly impressed. I thrive off of celebrity gossip, so a night where you put a bunch of stars and their egos in one place? Heaven! Whereas most award shows tend to err on the boring side, last night's show was definitely anything but that. Let's recap shall we?

Let me begin with Lady Gaga's commonly strange performance where she embodied a nun and a stripper all in the span of 5 minutes. She is a good performer, but she will never cease to scare the crap out of me. 

From there we can move on to Taylor Swift supposedly cursing One Direction while they presented an award. 

{MTV}
Selena's eye roll is just too good. Guess Tay Tay isn't over her British "bad boy" quite yet.  

Next up: Miley.......

I wish there were even words to describe this strange, drugged-Care-Bear-filled, Angelica-Pickles-resembling, on-the-verge-of-a-porno performance, but I can assure you, nothing in the dictionary even begins to cover it. Let me just say: I will never look at a foam finger in the same way ever again. 

{People}
Oh sweet niblets....

Moving on.

Taylor wasn't done with her Harry Styles digs yet. When she went on stage to accept her the Best Female Video award for I Knew You Were Trouble, she sassily thanked a certain someone for inspiring her to write the song and thus allowing her to win the award. In the words of Damien, "she's fabulous, but she's evil". You go girlfriend. Just as long as we come to a collective agreement that cameramen across the world stop panning to her dancing in the audience during performances from now on. Please.

**Side rant: I would like to point out that it is impossible that Taylor wrote I Knew You Were Trouble about Harry Styles because the song was released in November and they were still dating the following January. I know this because I vividly remember sobbing over the fact that Harry Styles was not my New Years kiss. Tear, tear :'(

AND THIS WAS ONLY THE FIRST HOUR, PEOPLE! 

It only got better from here because next came the most important/relevant/mesmerizing/perfect event of the night: Justin Timberlake's performance.
{Idolator}
He did this important/relevant/mesmerizing/perfect thing where he went back in time with his songs, eventually leading to a brief, albeit AMAZING reunion of *NSYNC. Twitter was absolutely FREAKING. OUT. It was like the best ten minutes of my entire weekend and I could not stop watching it over and over and over. 

Other highlights?
- Lil' Kim was on something
- Couldn't tell if Kanye was performing or if my cable was just being spotty....Hope he doesn't sing that song to baby North as a lullaby :/
- Bruno Mars gave a great performance. Leave it to him to make a song about gorillas sound romantic....
- Katy Perry closed out the show with my jam, Roar. I was going ham dancing along in my basement. 

And that, my friends, wraps up my 2013 VMAs recap. 
What were some of the highlights of the show in your opinion?

With Love,

  1. The JT performance was HANDS DOWN my favorite part! Although I was hoping for a little longer *NSYNC reunion...
