Katy Perry is dressed like a figure skater, Lady Gaga like a peacock. Something about pink and purple space outfits.
And this is just the beginning of the MTV Video Music Awards.
The VMAs are off to an interesting start. Eminem was the opening act with his inspiring song, “I’m not Afraid”. Rhianna then appears in a white wedding-type dress and the two sing “Love the Way you Lie.” The performance wasn’t mind-blowing but Eminem on stage is amazing, period.
Hosting the VMAs is Chelsea Handler who is proving to be a little racy and on the raunchy side. Probably not suitable even for older kids. Some of her jokes involve certain body parts that were pretty inappropriate and uncomfortable.
Chelsea Handler did a spoof with Lindsay Lohan which was pretty funny, but seeing Lindsay after all her troubles, she looked pretty ragged. Feel sad for Lindsay, hopefully her appearance will be the beginning of a comeback?
We know that Jersey Shore is an MTV hot ticket but having them up front and center at the VMAs just goes to show what direction MTV has headed. Relying heavily on reality TV for their success and less about the music.
Lady Gaga won Best Dance Video trophy, the first to clutch the first award of the evening for “Bad Romance.”
The 27th annual MTV Video Music Awards are happening live, right now at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
