I’m not sure if I have an excess amount of time right now or I was legitimately into the VMA’s this year. My gym has a “current music videos” section on the cardio machines so I had actually seen all the nominees. Since I had nothing better to do on Sunday night, I decided to watch. While watching I jotted down my thoughts of the night. I’ve always thought the VMA’s was more about entertainment versus music quality.
Then I went to bed because it way past my old lady background. Imagine my joy when I got to read it back on Monday morning.
Incase you didn’t know, the Video music awards gives awards to various artists based on their video’s corresponding to recent hits. While their music must be decent, this award show is all about the videos and how interesting, crazy and entertaining they can be.
Is the song “Anaconda” the greatest song you’ve ever heard?
No, but is the video probably one of the most interesting?
These days a lot of songs are more visually interesting than musically creative.
Just to preface: I have no musical experience. I am tone deaf and all of these opinions are my own. I have no credentials to be judging music videos or music…
Some thoughts I had while watching:
Gosh I just love Swift more and more. (I’m currently obsessed with her newest song: Shake It Off)
I loved her onesie (I think I was the only one who did) but I loved her performance outfit too.
It’s so bright I forgot my pants…but I’ll shield my eyes.
My exact thoughts during her performance:
Oh my gosh, did she mean to panic like that mid performance. Quick, ask the twitters what is going on. Oh okay good she did to not jump off the stage and take a dig at Nicki Minaj. #womancrush
During the VMAS, I concluded Taylor and I must be twins because…well she dances like I dance…Really awkwardly and all the time. .
Thoughts during Nicki Manaj’s performance
OH. MY. GOSH. I guess Anaconda was real life.
I don’t think they sterilized this waxing cream at the nail salon…if you know what I mean.
She has really pretty hair but I guess no one really looks at that.
Oh no, I bet she totally meant to have to hold her dress…yeah I don’t believe you didn’t have time.
WTF is that white thing she is wearing (With Usher). Nicki, no, just no.
Thoughts about Miley Cyrus winning best overall video:
She really did come in like a wrecking ball. I mean I do have to say, there isn’t anyone that hasn’t seen it. I think it’s well deserved.
I had no idea she was so involved with that but that is truly great. She has grown up from the twerking of last year. Good for her. (I was sad she said she was retiring the twerk.)
That is really awesome she wanted that guy to accept the award for her. My views for Miley changed a lot during that video.
Personally I think they gave her too much time to close the show. It was at least 1/3 of the actual aired portion. I’m happy for Beyonce and I do think she is an incredible performer but I would have liked to see other awards being given out.
