The VMAs were rather tame this year by several accounts. It’s hard to top Madonna making out with Britney and XTina, when James Blunt wins two awards and The Black Eyed Peas get “Best Hip-Hop” for the abominable “My Humps” you know you’ve got problems.
Despite the lack of memorable moments the VMAs weren’t entirely predictable. Both Shakira and The Red Hot Chili Peppers won consolation prizes, and many of the top awards went to unexpected artists.
Performances by Beyonce, Shakira, and Justin Timberlake were said to be decent, but not incredible.
Where are Eminem and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog when you need them?
Despite Shakira’s ever-gyrating hips, Justin Timberlake’s SexyBack and the obscured image of a naked midget, last night’s MTV Video Music Awards had about as much spontaneity as an episode of Cribs. – London Free Press
