Style Superlatives: The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards

Did y’all catch the MTV VMAs last night? It was quite a show, what with Blue Ivy showing up to steal the spotlight with just a few dance moves. But before I get to recapping the show, let’s review what Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani and more wore by handing out some style…

Beyonce Just Stole The Show At The MTV VMAs — With A Little Help From Blue Ivy

Beyonce won the Video Vanguard Award at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, but before she accepted her trophy, the Queen of Everything performed a 15 minute medly for the enraptured crowd. At one point, the world FEMINIST flashed behind her in big block letters — expect to see that moment immortalized as every…

Join Us Tonight: The Frisky Is Live-Tweeting The MTV VMAs!

A short poem in honor of tonight’s Video Music Awards:
It ain’t hard to remember last year’s VMAs
So many “oh shit” moments happened up on that stage.
The Smith family watched slack-jawed and couldn’t not watch
When Miley stuck her ass all up in Robin Thicke’s crotch.

One Of Miley Cyrus’s Dancing Bears Speaks Out About The Performance That Made Her Feel “Less Than Human”

I was in Miley Cyrus’ 2013 VMA performance as one of the background bears. I had never done anything in a costume with a mask like that before. I mean, I dressed up as a Pink Power Ranger when I was in Kindergarten and I had a mask on but, I digress… I had never…

Miley Cyrus Says We’re All Over Thinking Her VMAs Performance

“I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance, that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history. Me and Robin, the whole time said, ‘You know…

Poll: Was Miley’s VMAs Performance All In Good Fun Or Totally Offensive?

Let’s take a minute to talk about Miley Cyrus, shall we?

With a performance so uncomfortable it rivals that of the bride who grinded down the aisle to Buckcherry’s “Crazy Bitch,” Miley’s jaw-dropping VMAs stunt left parents covering the eyes of their children and grown adults glaring with disapproval as they watched i…

Robin Thicke Is Not Pleased Twerk-Happy Miley Cyrus Stole His VMAs Thunder

LOL, Robin Thicke is mad that Miley Cyrus upstaged him during his own performance. Trust me, Robin. Not one moment of your pervy drunk uncle routine was overlooked. [International Business Times]
Speaking of Miley, here is an on point essay about the racial implications of her performance. [Jezebel Groupthink]
So, what did Kelly Clarkso…

Our 2013 MTV Video Music Awards Wrap-Up

Well, better late than never. We had planned on getting up the rest of our VMA wrap-up — featuring our friends Andy and Deena from Celebuzz and Vibe Vixen — a little earlier, but, well, we had technical difficulties. But so did Justin Timberlake, who sounded like his vocals were being transmitted through a 1988 Walkman’s foam…

Taylor Swift & Harry Styles Hang At MTV VMAs After-Party

Taylor Swift may have gotten in a dig at ex Harry Styles when accepting her VMA last night — and she was busted saying he should “shut the fuck up” when talking to bestie Selena Gomez — but the two still posed for a pic together at an after party. Maybe all is forgiven?

So That’s Who Robin Thicke Was Inspired By At Last Night’s VMAs…

Beetlejuice certainly did have a lecherous side too, didn’t he? Lydia (aka Winona Ryder) does not approve. [Facebook]

The Frisky’s MTV Video Music Awards Drinking Game

Another year, another MTV Video Music Awards show. Oh, the irony. When was, after all, the last time you saw an actual music video played on that channel? Even MTV’s more or less dropped the ruse, no longer referring to themselves as “Music Television.” But still, the VMAs persist. And we love it!
