The only recap you need:
1 – Miley Cyrus had the most talked about performance by dressing and acting like a slut: Tongue hanging out like a horse in heat, grinding on a foam finger in ways most would never even think of, grabbing and sniffing women’s backsides and twerking on Robin Thicke, who is 16 years her senior! Down right disgusting! I’m sure papa Billy Ray isn’t very unhappy with his former Disney star daughter’s behavior. You know much of the crowd wasn’t. #MileyCyrus
2 – We all knew Lady Gaga was weird. She changed several times during her opening performance of “Applause,” finally stripping down to a seashell bikini for the remainder of the show. Not classy, but not as bad as Cyrus. At least Gaga was tone enough to sport such less attire. #LadyGaga
3 – Country-sweetheart-turned-pop-star Taylor Swift cusses? Duh! Most people do! An MTV camera caught Swift mouthing “Shut the fuck up!” to BFF Selena Gomez while her ex-Harry Styles’ band, One Direction, was speaking on stage. #TaylorSwift
4 – *NYSNC reunited during Justin Timberlake’s nearly 20 minute set performing a medley of his hits. The boys all sang a very small portion of “Bye Bye Bye” and then went bye bye bye. We confirmed this last week and all the hype has been downplayed due to Cyrus’ circus sideshow. #NSYNC
5 – Eminem announced his new album, MMLP2, will be released November 5th. #MMLP2
6 – The music, just like it has been for the last 10-15 years, just plain sucks!
That is all anyone needs to know about MTV’s #VMAs.
