Show Down

The TV Guide

As I mentioned yesterday, most of my Sunday was all about the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Altho I chose not to work the red carpet this year, the folks at MTV (and the lovely Tamika in particular, love and thanks to her) still hooked me up with a ticket to attend the show. I had to pick up my ticket pretty early in the day so as soon as I got my work done, I made my way downtown to procure my VMA ticket. I had some time to kill before the actual show so I met up with Ollie for a brunch hang session. By 5pm, I had to get back to the Nokia Theater for the MTV VMA show … and, well, you know how that played out. I did manage to snap some fun photos from my seat inside the theater … which you can check out below. More »

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards Are Handed Out

Highs & Lows

As you should be well aware by now, MTV hosted it’s annual Video Music Awards celebration last night at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles, CA and by pretty much all accounts, the show wasn’t the best one ever. Because there was no host, the entire show felt messy and disjointed. Some of the performances were stellar (Adele and Beyoncé, I’m lookin’ at you), others were less than stellar (take your pick of the rest) and the show overall just didn’t mesh for me. I was happy for some of the award winners (Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj, lookin’ at you) and very disappointed and offended by others (in particular I’m referring to the blatant and unabashed homophobe that I cannot bring myself to even mention by name who won Best New Artist), which left me with an overall feeling of …. malaise over the whole thing. Click below to see some of the photos from last night’s fete and try to focus on the positives with me, ok? More »

Watch: Justin Bieber Ambushes Selena Gomez With A Kiss At The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Cuddle Time for Justena

One of the cuter moments of the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards last night was when pre-show co-host Selena Gomez interviewed her pop star boyfriend Justin Bieber on the red carpet before the show. Let’s forget for a second that Justin looked like … well … a lesbian … and focus on the cute interplay between the little lovebirds. Selena tried to keep her interview professional and, for the most part, Justin obliged … but he couldn’t resist ambushing his girl with a big smooch on camera at the end of their chat. Check out the video below. More »

Britney Spears Wins The ‘Best Pop Video’ & ‘Video Vanguard’ Awards At The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Living Legend

Last night, MTV paid “tribute” to our dear Britney Spears at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards by presenting her with the coveted Video Vanguard Award, which honors artists for outstanding lifetime video music achievement. When it was announced that Britney would be receiving the Video Vanguard Award this year, there was much discussion about how MTV would pay tribute to her contributions to pop music, pop culture and MTV in general. The tribute she actually received was partly cute, VERY SHORT and mostly overshadowed by others. I must confess … I was extremely disappointed and very letdown by the “tribute” that Britney got last night … but, in the end, am generally happy that she was honored at all with the Video Vanguard Award. Click below to read some of the deets and watch video from last night’s tribute to Britney Spears. More »

Maroon 5′s Adam Levine Says ‘F*ck You’ To The MTV VMAs

"every once in a while the angsty teenager in me just blurts out some raw honesty"

Last night, one day before the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards airs live on MTV tonight, Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine took to his official Twitter profile to publicly denounce the VMAs. In an effort to release some “angsty teenager … raw honesty”, Levine blasted MTV for not genuinely caring about music telling the VMAs that they can “fuck” off. This rant seems a bit odd considering that Maroon 5 won an MTV Video Music Award back in 2004, a fact that MTV cheekily reminded Levine of in response to his Twitter rant yesterday. More »
