OMG!!! The MTV Video Music Awards were horrible. There were a few highlights that were memorable, but otherwise not so much. Lets start with the bad shall we, Britney looked like a hooker that just had a baby and left it at the hospital to half-ass perform and lip-sync her way to an attempted comeback!!! I know it's a little harsh, but she's lost it and I mean completely. The over hyped battle between 50 Cent and Kanye West was on display all night with these 2 min performances of almost every single from their albums. I understand that the show was in Vegas, but seriously MTV just over did it! Chris Brown once again attempted his take on Mr. Jackson and he really could have kept it, maybe if his faulty performance at the World Music Awards a couple of years ago weren't so bad, I might give him some props. He did like 3 songs and then Rihanna came out as if the two were going to do the remix of "Umbrella", how wrong was I. Oh yea, the 30 sec performances in the little hotel parties given by the stars were horrendous!
Now for the good! Linkin Park, Alicia Keys, and Justin Timberlake really had strong performances. Keys has really put on some extra weight, her thighs were looking a little thick, but for the most part, the performance was original and classic. Linkin Park is my favorite rock group, so I knew that an exceptional performance was in the making and they didn't disappoint! J.T. rocked the house with his best bud Timbaland was pretty fly. The Southern Hospitality party given by Tim and J.T. was cool and I have to admit the " She Wants It" performance by 50, J.T. and Tim was well done. T.I. was the bomb as usual, he remains one of the original rappers. I can't wait to see his atcing skills in American Gangster, which most reviews have been good! Also, congratulations go out to Justin, he won an Emmy for his performance of " D*** In a Box" on SNL.
Well that's about it, if I think of anything else during the day, I will update as usual.
In the words of Justin Timberlake, " MTV, play some more damn videos and stop the Simpson reality stuff!" I totally agree Justin, the network has become a reality drama driven fiasco! Did you see the preview for the Tila Tequila reality show that will be premiering sometime this month? She will choose at the end of the show if she wants to be with a girl or guy, how original! LOL
