What I learned (and confirmed) after watching the VMA's

The VMA's were....interesting. The Michael Jackson tribute was impressive...I'm not gonna compare it to the BET Awards tribute because MTV had more time to prepare. I enjoyed it though, especially the performance with Janet. She looked great and it was good to see her up on stage again.

Nevertheless, I learned a lot about artists in the music world and also confirmed a lot of what I already knew. Such as:

1. We already knew Kanye West was an arrogant, spoiled brat who thinks he's invincible. He pouts when he loses at award ceremonies and says what he wants about the president of the United States during a live simulcast. And though it may be true that "George Bush doesn't care about Black people" his timing was all wrong. But we still buy his music so perhaps he has a right to feel "untouchable." But tonight drew the line for me and confirmed him to be an absolute asshole. Sure many of us may have felt that Taylor Swift did not deserve the Best Female Video award, the fact is that she won. Period. Kanye had no right to get his butt up there and state his opinion. Beyonce was even embarrassed and later allowed the young country star to come up and give her acceptance speech after she won the Video of the Year award for "Single Ladies". Kanye needs to be stopped. As a matter of fact, he was booed everytime his video was nominated for an award. But he needs to be brought down a tad. Its cool to be confident in your work and even a little cocky maybe. But to be a downright asshole is whole 'nother issue.

It pissed me off to see some of my twitter friends supporting his ignorant behavior. Whether you agree with what he said or not, you don't rob someone of their moment. Eminem made sure to bring some big intimidating guy up there with him to accept his award for best male hip hop video just in case Kanye tried to jump stupid again! LOL

Moving on...............

2. What in the hell is wrong with Lady Gaga?? I mean really? Its one thing to be different and innovative but she was just plain scary! Throughout the night, the "pokerface" singer had on some strange out of this world outfit. From the beginning of the night in some feathered neck brace type thing that looked mad uncomfortable to red laced bank robber thingy over her face to some weirdo eskimo number. I confirmed this evening that the girl is just strange. She makes great music but she scares me. But the point of the night that pissed me off with Lady Gaga was when she thanked The Gays and God right behind each other in her acceptance speech. Now this may be a touchy issue for some but this is my blog so I say what I want....You don't do that!!! That is straight up blasphemy in my opinion. Lady Gaga get off the drugs boo....They'll kill you.


3.My girl Pink: I was impressed with her flying acrobatics while still singing without running out of breath. That was impressive. Nevertheless, my twitterbugs thought her performance to be a little to Barnum and Bailey Ringling Brotherish. Hey maybe she did want to be in the circus at one time so she fulfilled her dream tonight on the VMA stage. More power to her! Love ya Pink! So we learned that Pink wanted to be a circus performer.

I also learned that....

4. You can't trust that the top designers always make one of a kind dresses for their clients. Pink and Shakira had on the same dress, the same night at the same event!!!! Wow! Never seen that before.

And my favorite moment of the night....

5. The Jay-Z and Alicia Keys performance!!!! Loved it! Love the song "Empire State of Mind" and Love the Blueprint3!!!! Alicia looked and sounded amazing and Hova killed it!!! His wifey looked to really be enjoying herself in the audience too. HOWEVER, what in the hell did Lil Mama think she was doing getting up on stage at the end of the night? It just didnt fit. Sure I get it, she's from New York. But so is Lil Kim, 50 cent, Dougie Fresh, Foxy Brown, Mos Def....well you get my drift. There was no reason for her to get her butt on stage. Where is security when you need them? You would think it would be a little tighter with all these celebrities hanging around the building. First Kanye now Lil Mama!!! This has got to stop! So we also learned that MTV needs to tighten up on the security.
