Here's what I thought of the VMA's..

They might as well been called The Gaga's, or as Chelsea said... GA ga!

Let me first say I was very excited for the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). They had been showing commercials and promos for weeks, if not months. One of my best friends and I planned to watch it together and were geeked for some of the performances.

Let's start with the letdowns and work our way to my favorite parts.

  • I love Chelsea Handler. She's hilarious on her show and I've seen her live. Poor girl was nervous. I did laugh at some of the bits, but for the most part...not so funny.
  • Justin Beiber, I thought you were 12. Apparently you're 16. That is not good. That's all I'm sayin'.
  • KANYE. Okay, T. Swift went up there with a heartfelt song about how you're still innocent and that she basically forgives you because everyone makes mistakes. You come out (last also, great job MTV!) and sing a song about how it is okay to be a douche. Gag.
  • They had random performances which they cut off. I suppose they were for the attendees while we were shown commercials, but still. I would have liked to see more of some of those..
  • Gaga won EVERYTHING. I hate when one artist comes and steals all the awards. I know it is not their fault everyone likes them, but show someone else some love, voters.
  • I loooooved performances by Florence + The Machine (so much in fact, that I downloaded her CD today), Paramore & B.o.b (Love them, especially Paramore!), and Taylor Swift.
  • The parts with Chelsea where she was meeting the new artists. Chelsea + Ke$ha = golden.
  • Drake! I love him. But Mary J. Blige and Swizz Beats could have left and no one would have cared. I wish he would have sung "Over".
Overall, pretty entertaining but disappointing. There's always next year...

What did you think if you watched it?


  1. Yeah, I didn't watch the VMAs, but I guess I didn't really miss much, haha... it doesn't surprise me that Lady Gaga won all the awards! But I do quite like Florence & the Machine. :]

  2. Yeah I guess I wasn't surprised either, but I was still annoyed. haha! And yes, Florence is amazing. :)
