Its the 25th MTV Video Music Awards held at the Paramount studios in Hollywood. Right off the bat I had a feeling that this would be a toned down VMA, at least compared to last years extravaganza. The Main stage wasnt even designed that well and it really wasnt that impressive.
Russell Brand is this year’s host and frankly the more I watch these award shows the more I feel sorry for the hosts. If you try to be your unique and crazy self, you dont get a lot of cheers from the celebs and if you try to go for that crowd’s laugh you get ripped by the online community. Its like you have to choose, would you be John Stewart or Steve Martin. Well anyways I still think Russell did a good job hosting, getting a good amount of laughs considering he’s taking his London comedy to a foreign land. One thing I didn’t like was they made him keep saying “oh what a wonderful show its been so far” everytime he had to do his bit. Man, that -ish was annoying, as if that was gonna save the dull parts of the show.
Now for my “what ups”……..
whats up with Ciara’s hair
whats up with Rihanna’s hair
whats up with Lindsay Lohan’s hair
whats up with Bill Kaulitz looking more like Bjork everyday
