VMA Sheepness

So since we were bored, my brother and I watched the VMA's on MTV live. And now I'm going to share my thoughts, uncensored as usual, anyone who doesn't like them can feel free to say whatever they like but I figure - it's my blog, I'll voice my opinions as I see fit. :P

Madonna began the show with what has to be one of the most eloquent chastisements I've ever heard in my life - laying some seriously harsh guilt on anyone present and anyone watching for how we treated Michael Jackson before he died. She had my admiration already because as an artist she's pretty talented, now she has my respect as well. Brava!!

And the montage to MJ! So very nice, it was both touching and awesome to see Janet perform Scream 'with' him again, but wow the look on her face when it ended - think she's still (justifiably, in my opinion!) angry at how the world treated her brother the past decade or so?

Poor Russel Brand - I swear I don't think the audience knew how to respond to him, they were hardly laughing at his funny comments at all! Honestly I think it was making him improvise quite a bit trying to get a reaction and it just wasn't working. Then again, maybe it was just that audience, there were quite a few moments where they should've reacted to something in performaces and barely did. Oh well. (Oh yeah, and I think he's cute too, just a random thought. *grins*)

Taylor Swift I gotta say - I feel seriously bad for her. Talk about RUDE! Kanye West going up there and taking the mic from her to voice his displeasure that Beyonce didn't win while Swift was trying to stutter out a stunned thank you ... that was just seriously beyond rude of him. Rude, rude, rude, rude, rude!!!

Lady Gaga's performance of Paparazzi .... wasn't surreal, wasn't meaningful, wasn't entertaining... honestly it was about the most amazingly tweaked out garbage I've ever seen. Wow. Just wow. And let's not even discuss her multiple wardrobe changes through the night, hoooooooo boy... More Wow.

Beyonce performing Single Ladies live was insane - holy smokes! Damn sexy woman. *grins* Muse gave a pretty decent performance too, now I just need to figure out where I've heard them before... :) Gotta admit, I'm happy that Eminem won for his video - it was pretty awesome. *grins* It was also really amusing watching him give Lady Gaga her award (I swear he looked like he didn't want to be standing anywhere near her! *chuckles*), he tried so hard to just stay a few feet away and not look horrified.

Pinks performance was ... amazing. Holy smokes (yet again) - I'm thinking that the guy on the trapieze with her is a pretty happy man. :P Seriously, that was downright impressive.

Beyonce, another lady who had my admiration that now has my respect! How sweet of her to call Taylor Swift back out to try her thank you's again, that was such a lovely, thoughtful and respectful thing to do. It's really lovely when people do the right thing like that. *smiles*

The final performance - Jay Z and Alicia Keys, yanno... I was pretty disappointed. They hyped it to be like a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge big thing, and while Keys was beautiful and gave a fantastic performance, to me Jay Z looked like it was a normal every day performance without much thought involved...

Ah well, now it's time for bed - us college students need sleep! :)
