So I know it's been forever now since the VMA's but I just now got around to blogging about it. This year, I would rate it a 2 out of 5 stars. And I give those two stars solely because Chelsea Handler was hosting. I love her and all of her sarcastic, asshole, idgaf humor.
I hate to say it, but the highlight of the entire VMA's was Mr. Beiber's performance.
Dude went in (for a 15 yr old (or however old he is)) and in my opinion, upstaged his mentor/big brother/master, Usher. Well done Beiber, well done.
Usher did okay too, but I think at this point in his career, he isn't really gonna do anything that we haven't already seen from him.
The sliding thing was kinda cool..
Drake's performance was flat. I'm tired of your damn song and your over used sing-songy flow. SWITCH IT UP.
Excuse the absolute shit quality of this video.
Kanye's performance... eh, I just wish he would have done a song that was more upbeat and got the crowd hype, instead of doing a song that was kinda like him coming out with his tail between his legs and acknowledging he's an asshole. THAT'S WHY AMERICA LOVES YOU. Be you. You'v apologized to the girl now move on. The beat is dope. Nice to see Pusha get some spotlight. That's it.
2010 VMA's summed up in one word: "eh."
2010 VMA's best dressed:
I'm not even tryna dickride dude but his outfit was on point. Whoever his stylist is did a Good Ass Job.
I see you JT. I guess the Justins cleaned up this year in the style department.
Really? Like really? Wtf is this fuckery? No sir. Just... no.
Believe it or not, that's a really hard thing to do. My homie/sister/female me Symon is one of those people. It's ironic how I met the realest person I know through one of the fakest people I know. I still remember meeting Symon and (she swears she didn't but I KNOW she did) she gave me the "nigga wtf" look. Come to think of it, so did Adria and Falon.. but that's another story. The "nigga wtf look" is actually similar to the look above, but not quite. Anyway, Symon was one of the only people I knew in Austin but after a few conversations about rap (Kanye), me being converted (Cudi), and the NBA (LeBron), we became really good friends.
I respect Symon's hustle because she does shit and she doesn't change for ANYONE. A lot of people say that, but few actually live it. I feel like everyone, especially when they're younger, does so much shit to "fit in" or to "be accepted", especially in the world of entertainment/fashion/music. And though she's still a rookie, she is still true to herself and those who are around her. It sucks that she'll probably be in LA by the time I'm back in Austin but I know she's gonna tear shit up there and I wish nothing but the best for her.
Real recognize Real and you lookin' reeeal familiar. Love you babygirl!
