hey kids! of course i’m watching MTV’s VMAs which just started here in los angeles – i hate that damn west coast delay! i’m going to update throughout the evening – i’m not calling it ‘live blogging’ so there is no pressure…i’ll be adding in pics as well – i doubt any of the performances would be on youtube yet but i will be checking…let’s get to the opening…oh btw many thanks to the awesome SVZ from gossip rocks for keeping up an awesome up-to-date site (this guy works it) and helping me to organize the pics below so quickly!
wow! my boy worked it tonight – i loved the beginning with him doing all those moonwalk/michael jackson type moves – he sounded great – he was beyond adorable – and i actually really enjoyed hearing him sing sexyback without all the vocal tweak outs – and of course timbaland was there adding his own hot thing – awesome way to kick-off the show – i couldn’t help but think of kevin federline‘s awful performance compared to JT’s brilliance – britney spears must be thinking what the hell she get herself into…or out of!
i want to have her body! the way she shakes & shimmys her ass – everyone should aspire to move like this sexy lady – props to her for singing obviously very live – she was for sure off in a few bits but she’s the real deal – and mr. wyclef was working it hard too! oh shakira those hips would never lie to us…i still think the video is on the weak side for this song – most of the times it’s more about the song than the video with these awards…
thoughts coming soon – popbytes needs to eat :) – ok i’m back – she rocked her ass off! y’all know by now i’m a huge fan of ms. knowles and she really had to bring it tonight (to hush down all the haters) – and she brought it hard – beyonce nailed it! the dancing was super fierce – that bit when she and her dancers all leaned back – damn! the song worked well live plus she shook it up a bit – adding some signature touches plus she sounded superb! although her upcoming album bday is just ok (that’s another whole post) i adore ring the alarm and my gal b did me proud tonight! i don’t care what anyone else thinks – she did her thing!
her voice was impeccable & beautifully haunting tonight – i think her choice of hurt for the second single from back to basics is really smart – i’m still digging her whole throwback thing and that girl has so got an amazing set of pipes on her – what a great showcase tonight for her – especially after being denied a VMA this evening…
i guess that’s it for performances – i really only was looking forward to the above four and each did their thing – shakira was a drop weak tonight but justin, beyonce, and christina were all at the top of their game!
OTHER THOUGHTS & MOMENTS
lighters up for lil’ kim! loved seeing her at the show! so glad to see her out of prison – she needs to hit the treadmill for a bit though but y’all know she is one of my top people – she is the queen bee for sure!
kelly clarkson – although i like her – did she really need to win ‘best female video’? over madonna and xtina? please – what a fucking joke – sorry kelly…plus she wasn’t even there?!?
jessica simpson is the biggest dork on the planet – and damn that dress was so short (and way tacky) she was like a two bit hooker guffawing her way through giving those PCD their award – again madonna was robbed…
once paris hilton walked out in that awful white number – i realized that the protruding side walkway looked like a big penis…why didn’t she perform tonight? hmmm – this would have been the perfect place to see her sing her songs live…
some of these bands i’m not so into – i can’t really say much about all-american rejects except the lead singer is a cutie pie but it’s just not my type of music…same goes for the sounds of my chemical romance
oh i love pink – i’m glad she won! her album i’m not dead rocks – i wish it was getting more airplay though – there are a lot of great single potentials on that disc…and of course i have a major crush on her tattooed hubby carey hart – such a hottie!
sarah silverman is way cool and so fucking funny – i think her message to paris hilton was one of the better moments of the night – do you think that bit was scripted? it did plug the planned richie/hilton reconciliation over on another viacom owned property – CBS’ late show w/ david letterman – they didn’t cut once to paris or nicole – yes it was a bit awkward…which is such a great part of sarah’s whole comedic vibe…she should host the show next year! jimmy kimmel is a lucky man!
poor amy lee (from evanescence) got stuck with presenting with weirdo (but sometimes hot) jared leto – he was wacky tonight – i much prefer his actor persona better than this mars band thingy – the eyeliner is growing old….
lots of commercials and tie-ins (accuvue, jc penney etc) are filling up a lot of space tonight…the show was also referred to as the biggest night in pop culture – they make themselves oh so important…
panic at the disco – i don’t like them! that i write sings not tragedies is terribly annoying and is played all the time on the radio and their performance tonight was horrible – the lead singer sounded like crap – he should have lip synced – i don’t get what the big deal is over them?
gosh britney spears got such a chilly reception this evening when she was on satellite from california – there were even boos & hisses! oh man that skit she did with hubby kfed was really dumb & lame! but since i still like ms. spears in some small ways i just felt embarassed for her – such a fucking trainwreck – i suggest before we save kat(i)e – we MUST save britney!
i gotta start making this quick – i need to go to bed…jennifer lopez looked like a patient from who knows where with that dumb wrap on her head…video of the year goes to that awful panic from the disco – i love the guy (mtv6000.com) who grabbed the microphone from them and crashed their moment…jack black was boring as main host…overall the best thing tonight was the four performances i mentioned above – everything else grew stale…the hype williams tribute was a bore – and finally the actual ‘awards’ are such a joke – who even decides the winners? who even cares?
oh my word i posted a lot more tonight than i intended to but this was a lot less stressful than those emmys from last weekend…popbytes over & out for tonight – xxoo!
