So I’m sitting here perusing the various media outlets and their post-coverage of last night’s VMAs, and no big surprise, Rich at FourFour has the best recap out there (read it here). As always, expect amazing gifs, some of which I’ll use here, to dazzling effect.
Now, on to the things that I’d like to discuss – things that kinda fell by the wayside on account of all the Kanye hoopla.
1. The MJ tribute. Madonna’s speech, although read off a prompter, was still obviously written with much of her input and heart. I thought it was beautiful. The MJ dancers that took the stage afterwards were of course phenomenal, but the culmination of the performance came when Janet sang her verse on “Scream”, raspy and furious. I seriously bawled the moment she began the video dance sequence, Michael following her every move on the screen behind.
2. Pink. Her high-flying, acrobatic performance was oddly subtle and moving while at the same time being explosive and unique. Then she caps it off with a Twitter comment that was so perfect: “Kanye West is the biggest piece of shit on earth. Quote me.”
3. Lil’ Mama. What the EFF was up with her getting on stage during Jay-Z’s performance?!?! This needs to be explained. EW.com tackles the mystery to no avail. Soon afterward, Fabolous started a Twitter trend called “#lilmamais”. I.E. “#lilmamais the bird that flew outta Lady Gaga’s nest on her face!!”
4. Lady Gaga’s best outfit of the night, nodding to Jay-Z & Alicia:
