Last night, the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards took place in Los Angeles, CA, and for the first time in I can’t remember how many years I have not watched it live 😦 I used to stay up until 6 a.m. to watch it every year, cause they started around 2 a.m. here in Romania, but this year, I don’t know why, I haven’t. I guess I’m just getting old 😐 It’s a shame really, cause I just finished watching them and it was amazing! One of the best ever! There were a lot of performances, more than any year, I think, and I loved every one of them ❤

Don’t have much to say about the host, Chelsea Handler. I wasn’t really impressed by her, but she was the first woman to host the VMAs since “Justin Timberlake was still in the Mickey Mouse Club, pretending he wasn’t having sex with Britney Spears” [that was pretty funny :D], as in 1994, so we gotta give her that.

And the winners… well, I pretty much agree with all of them, except for one: Video of the Year! I may be a little biased here and I don’t wanna pull a “Kanye West”, but Eminem should have won 😉

Speaking of Eminem, his performance was A-FREAKING-MAZING!!! Seriously, I had tears in my eyes when he started singing. With every performance like this one and every song, he’s reminding me why I love him so much 😀 And Rihanna wasn’t bad, either.

Justin Bieber performed from the Nokia Plaza. Looking past the “I’m so cool” looks and moves, his performance was pretty good too.

And next, oh, Usher! ❤ It was like 30 minutes into the show and two of my favorite artists performed. Best show ever! You could hear Ush’s voice growing weak at times, but with those dance moves, it’s understandable. He was great, as well!

Other performances were given by N.E.R.D and Ciara, from the Chevrolet Cruze Drive In, Drake featuring Mary J Blige and Swizz Beat, Florence + The Machines, Bruno Mars and B.o.B. followed by Haylie Williams and Paramore. Also, Linkin Park put on an amazing show from the Griffith Observatory and Taylor Swift performed for the first time her new song “Innocent”, with references to last year’s “events” and Kanye West. Speaking of which, Kanye was the last one to perform, closing the awards ceremony. Pretty good, the song, also making references to his jackass-y behavior at last year’s VMAs [And I always find something wrong/ You’ve been putting up with my shit way too long/ I’m so gifted in finding what I don’t like the most/ So I think it’s time for us to have a toast/ Let’s have a toast for the douche-bags/ Let’s have a toast for the ass-wholes/ Let’s have a toast for the scum-bags/ Everyone of them that I know]. Including himself, I guess.

Now that I have expressed all my thoughts about this year’s show, which I think has been one of the best (if not the best), after the jump you have the list of the winners, some photos and some of the performances. Enjoy! 😀

“I’m sorry Taylor.”

Kanye West tweeted for nearly 3 hours, expressing in great depth his thoughts on last year’s VMA incident with Taylor Swift. He goes from explaining himself  “I am not a bad person. Even in that moment I was only trying to do good but people don’t always need my help.”, to guilt “With new found humility … who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down“, to acceptance “You’ve got the top layer… Kanye’s rude!” to then ask for forgiveness “I want to win their hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion.

Funniest tweet: “If you google Asshole my face may very well pop up 2 pages into the search.” :))

Kanye West – Power Video

Weird stuff! I bet VigilantCitizen will be rambling about it.

Our Symphonic Life – Down (Jay Sean Cover)

I have just found this cover of Jay Sean latest hit, Down, by Our Symphonic Life.  Wow, that is really good!

And since we’re talking about covers, have you heard The Fray‘s cover of Kanye West‘s Heartless? Great, to say the least ❤

Kelly Clarkson is on Team Taylor

After last night’s scandal at the VMA, Kelly Clarkson snaps and writes on her blog  a hate post adressed to Kanye West.

“Dear Kayne,

What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like sh*t.

I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty sh*tty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, a*shole ways. It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my a*shole ex that cheated on me over you which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you. The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up. Is it that important, really??

I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her … so why can’t you be?? I’m not even mad at you for being an a*shole … I just pity you because you’re a sad human being.

On a side note, Beyonce has always been a class act and proved again tonight that she still is. Go TEXAS!!

Taylor Swift, you outsell him …that’s why he’s bitter. You know I love your work! Keep it up girl!

KC”

Kanye West takes his blog to apologize for ruining the night not only for Taylor Swift, but also for the audience. He wrote everything as soon as he got home, after being kicked out. He was probably drunk that he forgot to turn off the Caps Lock.
“I’M SOOOOO SORRY, TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD’VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE’S IN THE BLEACHERS! ”
“I’M IN THE WRONG FOR GOING ON STAGE AND TAKING AWAY FROM HER MOMENT!…………….. BEYONCE’S VIDEO WAS THE BEST OF THIS DECADE!!!! I’M SORRY TO MY FANS IF I LET YOU GUYS DOWN!!!!I’M SORRY TO MY FRIENDS AT MTV. I WILL APOLOGIZE TO TAYLOR 2MRW.”
“WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD!!!! EVERYBODY WANNA BOOOOO ME BUT I’M A FAN OF REAL POP CULTURE!!! NO DISRESPECT BUT WE WATCHIN’ THE SHOW AT THE CRIB RIGHT NOW CAUSE … WELL YOU KNOW!!!! I’M STILL HAPPY FOR TAYLOR!!!! BOOOYAAAWWWW!!!! YOU ARE VERY VERY TALENTED!!! I GAVE MY AWARDS TO OUTKAST WHEN THEY DESERVED IT OVER ME… THAT’S WHAT IT IS!!!!!!!”
“I’M NOT CRAZY YALL, I’M JUST REAL. SORRY FOR THAT!!! I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR TAYLOR AND I’M SINCERELY SORRY!!! MUCH RESPECT!!!!!”

Later edit: new quote – “I feel like Ben Stiller in “Meet the Parents” when he messed up everything and Robert De Niro asked him to leave…      That was Taylor’s moment and I had no right in any way to take it from her.  I am truly sorry. “

Update by Catalina:

Here’s what Taylor Swift said about the incident: “Well, I was standing on stage because I was really excited because I had just won the award. And then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage. And then I wasn’t so excited anymore after that. I’ve been getting so many text messages and everybody’s been really nice. So I’ve had a really, really fun night. It’s been interesting definitely. It’s definitely been an interesting night… I don’t know him, and I’ve never met him, so… I don’t want to start anything because I had a great night tonight.” That’s very nice of her 🙂

vma2009Radu and I watched the VMAs together. They started at 4 a.m. here, in Romania, and we haven’t slept all night, but I think I speak in the name of both us when I say that it was worth it. It was great! Great performances, great winners and the new “New Moon” trailer 😀 What more can you ask? It could have been perfect if Lady Gaga‘s performance wouldn’t have been so damn weird and if a certain moron wouldn’t have ruined Taylor Swift‘s acceptance speech.

After the jump you can find a quick review of the awards, the complete list of the winners and some pics. Enjoy! 😀
