Recap of the VMA's

Watching the Video Music Awards is an annual tradition at our house and we always spend it with our good friends the Kaisers. We have entirely too much food and a lot of fun.  This year was no different!
You can always count on the VMA's to have great performances, drama and crazy outfits.  Here are my thoughts on this years awards.
The VMA's kicked off with a performance by Eminem and Rihanna. Loved it! Give me anything Eminem and I'll love it.
I loved Chelsea Handler as the host.  The woman is so funny although at times she almost seemed nervous while hosting, but I can't blame her for that.
Over all I was pleased with the results of the awards given out. I think everyone that won was deserving.

As for the outfits... Lady Gaga as always had the craziest outfits.  I thought her first 2 were pretty tame. You could see her face and see how pretty she really is.
Now the last outfit. The meat outfit.  Totally gross in my opinion and I honestly did not get the statement she was trying to make with it. This is what she stated in her interview with Ellen yesterday:
"Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian," Gaga said. "As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the Earth. However, it has many interpretations, but for me this evening if we don't stand up for what we believe in and if we don't fight for our rights, pretty soon we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones. And, I am not a piece of meat."

Moving along... Kanye and Taylor.  How could we not address THIS after last years "incident". Incase you missed it last year, Kanye stormed the stage while Talyor Swift was accepting her award for Best Music Video. He took the mic away from her stating that Beyonce's video should have won.
Fast forward a year later and Taylor sang a new song with lyrics stating "who you are is not what you did" among other words of forgiveness. Then Kanye performs a song with lyrics about "you've been putting up with my Sh*t for too long" and toasting "d-bags and a-holes" so I guess this is an apology?!? not really sure.  I'm team Taylor and personally don't think that MTV should have allowed Kayne to perform. I don't think that an apology on this level needs to be made in public it should be between the two of them. I suppose MTV achieved what the wanted because everyone is talking about it. Including me :)  I will be ready to tune in again next year!
