Leave it to Chelsea Handler, brilliant woman that she is, to find and maintain the funny at the VMAs this year. As the first woman to ever host in its 16 year history, she called MTV out on the farce that the VMAs are and then MTV managed to put on a pretty good show. Shall we hit the highlights?
*No one is laughing, Lindsey. Too soon, dumbass. Too soon.
*Still laughing at “the big black elephant in the room.” Oh, Chelsea.
*I love that 30 seconds to Mars won best rock video. What I dont’ love is that terrible new blond ‘do Jared was rockin’. I miss the shag, dude.
*Your love for Justin Beiber isn’t just creepy in the eyes of the law, Kim.
*And then little Justin proved boys can lip sync too.
*Yep, definitely don’t get the whole Usher thing anymore…
*Like most Taylor Swift songs, I’m sure I’ll get this one late, but right now I don’t understand…
*Is it just me or is Justin Timberlake aging backwards?And white again…
*I just heard this song Airplanes the other day for the first time and I LOVE it. It’s such an ear worm and I just don’t care.
*Raise your hand if you are surprised Justin Beiber won Best New Artist. Bueller? Beuller?
*The verdict is still out on the new Linkin Park song for me, but the performance was pretty bad ass.
*Still love me some Cher. Vintage or otherwise…
*Oh Kanye, why won’t you go away? Not even if we ask nicely?
All right, that’s pretty much everything. I’ll go back to hating MTV tomorrow for bringing Snooki and Speidi into this world, but for now, I’m kind of okay with them being ironically named.
