The VMA Winners and a Bodacious Beyonce!

The less said about last night’s VMA’s, the better. The winner list was pretty ridiculous: Britney over Adele? Justin Bieber over Bruno Mars and Eminem? What? And who the heck is Tyler the Creator? … And several performances were like an all out attack on your senses and not in a good way (Um, vomit on Chris Brown)… However, there were a few great moments, namely a newly pregnant Beyonce in a wonderful performance of “Love on Top” one of the few tracks I like on her latest album, 4, and a brilliant Adele who grabbed a standing ovation for her exquisite take on her latest smash “Someone Like You”… And ok, I loved me some Lady Gaga doing “You and I” as a man. However, the rest of her schtick was a tad annoying and awkward as the night went on, and that’s coming from one of her biggest fans…. I also enjoyed the Amy Winehouse tribute with a great performance from Bruno Mars and a lovely speech from her friend a restrained Russell Brand….
