MTV VMAs Recap

This year's VMAs telecast had its moments, as usual. Here are the incredibly key events. Lady Gaga accepted her VMA for Video of the Year while wearing a meat dress; apparently she is ignoring the criticisms of PETA. She also announced that the title of her upcoming album is Born This Way and sang a few bars of the title track. That was the big reveal.
Rihanna wore a red wig while performing "Love the Way You Lie" with Eminem. Kanye West closed the show while wearing a loud red suit. Taylor Swift –her mouth painted a ruby shade of crimson- did not join him during his performance. She did, however, perform a new song dubbed "Forgiveness" from her upcoming album Speak Now, which many felt was a bit of a backlash against West, who crashed her acceptance speech at last years VMAs.
Host Chelsea Handler was a riot and she even hopped in a hot tub with the cast of Jersey Shore and emerged pregnant and wondered aloud if the Morning After pill would work. That was a moment of pure, sheer and comedic brilliance, folks.
A lot of other fun shit happened. But these were my favorite moments. There were no West-Swift public make up sessions, which many thought would happen. Oh well. Some things are forgiven and not forgotten.
Did you watch the VMAs? What did you think?
