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.
TSwift told Harry Styles to “Shut the fuck up”
And N’SYNC reunited as uncoordinated grownups.
Gaga danced in a thong and Macklemore was legit,
And we somehow made it through the night without seeing one tit.
But the best part of all was The Frisky’s live tweets
So we’re doing it again and you better be there, bitches.
… I didn’t feel like rhyming anymore. Keep reading »
Miley Cyrus has reached her zeitgeist saturation point several times over, and I would not be upset if I never saw her bare ass or exposed tongue ever again. We’ve just seen too much of Miley (literally) in the past few months, you know? She needs to, like, go on a six-month horseback-riding retreat in Idaho or something. Any regular old photo of Miley on a sweatshirt wouldn’t do it for me (it’d be sort of like the contemporary equivalent of wearing a Che Guevara tee), but the very special (married, ugh) gentlemen behind Beloved Shirts are really onto something with this geometric take on Destiny Hope featuring her creepy Gene Simmons tongue and violated foam finger. It’s equal parts bizarre and strangely artful, almost Picasso-esque in its fractured design. Is the sweatshirt a worthy $59 investment? Probably not, and by the time the 20-day processing period has ended we’ll probably (ah, but a pipe dream) have forgotten all about the troublesome scene in question … but on the other hand, there’s also a chance it could become a collectible commemorative piece from an, um, iconic moment in Miley’s movement. Read: it could potentially be worth something one day! If the world hasn’t folded in on itself yet, that is. Things are not looking good. [Refinery29]
“Probably, while we were underneath the stage, maybe…[Kevin is] so close to the ground he can smell it.”
–Joey Fatone responds to host Kevin Hart’s claim that he let one rip during the *NSYNC reunion performance at the VMAs with a zinger of his own. Genius followup question by the TMZ paparazzo: “Were you winded from the performance?” Clearly he was. [TMZ]
It’s hard to choose the best part of Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, but if I had to pick just one memorable nanosecond, it would be the bored, faintly annoyed reaction Rihanna gave to Miley Cyrus’s out of control tongue-out twerkathon performance of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” (with Robin Thicke). Rihanna had the same expression that I put on when my dad tries to explain my tax returns to me or tells me about how much he loves the new John Mayer record: I can it the “when will this be over?” face. Also, she was likely very, very out-of-her-mind high.
With that in mind, we imagined what Rihanna might do when face with some other incredible moments/unbelievable shitshows. Like the following: Keep reading »
