Last night MTV hosted the 29th annual Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Here’s what happened in a nutshell:
Lady Gaga gave an awesome performance of her song “Applause” and spent the rest of the evening in seashells and a g- string.
Mother Monster opened the show with her impressive vocal range and numerous costume changes before settling on the evening’s attire, her mermaid costume from the music video.
Justin Timberlake won some big award, performed with N*Sync, and then let them fall into trapdoors
Like Beyoncè at the Super Bowl, Justin Timberlake reunited with his former band for a hot minute before letting them fall off the stage so he could finish his career- spanning medley. Also notable: his hideous shirt looked like a corset.
Miley Cyrus’ vagina is officially the least sacred thing on the planet
The “We Can’t Stop” singer paired the two most provocative songs of the summer: Miley’s “We Can’t Stop” and Robyn Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”. After desecrating a teddy bear she went on to finger herself with a giant foam hand. All while presumably wearing her engagement ring. Meanwhile, the Smith family did this:
Taylor Swift rubs it in Harry Styles’ face
After winning the VMA for Best Female Video, Taylor said “I also wanna thank the person who inspired this song, who knows exactly who he is, because now I got one of these!” She was also seen mouthing “shut the F*** up!” to hot date Selena Gomez when One Direction presented the award for Best Pop video.
Katy Perry performed her latest “I’m Bigger than Russell” song by the Brooklyn Bridge
Perry closed the show with her latest single “Roar” while wearing a deliciously hideous boxing outfit against the stunning backdrop of the Brooklyn Bridge. Perry’s showstopping performance was only topped by one of her backup dancer’s showstopping Brooklyn booty.
But hey, don’t take my word for it. Check out the full show, performances, and photos at MTV.com. They only put on the VMAs because they love you. And they want you to watch MTV.
If you really like trainwrecks Mashable sums up the Miley fiasco pretty well.
