The show was about a half hour shorter than usual and unlike previous years, did not have an actual host.
Artists like Adele, Chris Brown, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars all gave great performances. However, it was the spectacle put on by singer Beyonce Knowles that everyone will probably be talking about in the morning.
The almost 30-year old pop diva performed her single “Love on Top” and finished it off by exposing her obvious baby bump to a packed house that appeared to be taken totally by surprise.
Though originally shocked by the news, looking back on it, Beyonce always did make it known that she wanted to have children by the time she turned 30- which as it turns out- is next month.
So where does this leave her upcoming movie “A Star Is Born?” Well, as I posted last week, word is it has already been put on hiatus. As for her music, the singer reportedly shot some four or five videos last month- more than enough to cover any singles that will be released from her “4” album.
Back to the VMAs.
Did you guys see Nicki Minaj? I swear I pray for this woman. She is almost 30 years old and yet her wardrobe seems to be that of a 13 year old mentally disable child. It is like she puts her clothes on with her eyes closed. Her crazy attire screams “I need a stylist,” and yet like most people who dress like this, she thinks she looks cute.
Katy Perry’s ridiculous cube hat or whatever the heck she had on her head was also a disaster waiting to happen. She could barely walk for fear it would tip over.
Not cute Katy.
Kudos to Chris Brown for a mildly entertaining performance. Why he never sings live though is an issue for me. Even when he is standing still he lip synchs. He is without a doubt a great dancer but like Ciara, he seems to lack that extra something that could put him over the top.
Bruno Mars was also a highlight for me. I love his live performances and unlike the younger generation, I can see where his inspiration comes from: the one and only Frankie Lymon who Bruno sampled during his Amy Winehouse tribute.
And LOL at Britney Spears’ acceptance speech being nothing but a lead in to Beyonce’s performance. If I was Britney I would have never agreed to do any such thing. Talk about disrespectful.
Well that is about it for me. What was your highlight or lowlight of the evening?
