Dear MTV..

What kind of crazy ass deal did you strike with Britney Spears. I think you rigged everything and told her she was going to win to get her to show up. Granted she looked awesome, but a few things came to mind...

1. I don't think I've ever heard of "Pieces of Me"

2. You guys don't play videos, so I sure as hell didn't see the music video.

3. You wasted my night by having a boring non scandalous show.

4. You're lucky I have tivo and have Mad Men and Entourage on demand.

5. Having Russell Brand? He was just crude. From someone who laughs at everything, I was so upset that Britney didn't deliver an opening act, his stupid "shock-it-to-me"ness just annoyed me even more. It was like having a he-male Amy Winehouse.

6. And this bitterness had nothing to do with the crushed hubs sulking next to me googling everything Tom Brady. Go Pats..

Did anyone watch the MTV Music Awards? Am I the only one who felt like it was getting taped in a garage with a bunch of randos?

Lol, the only thing that I gained out of it was developing a small crush on the Jonas Brothers. ha!

I just put up a post about the VMAs!

I only watched it for Britney though, to be honest.

i totally agree with you about it being rigged for britney. i mean she's been nominated in the past for songs i've actually heard and never won and then this mystery song comes out of nowhere to sweep the vmas? ummmrigged what?

granted brit did look awesome, i will give her that much.

I only watched for a half hour or so and just wasn't entertained but figured that maybe I was out of the MTV loop. Rihanna's performance was pretty kick ass though.

I thought it was way better than last year, but MTV needs to get their shit together and put on a good show. They're *almost* there.

I watched for about five minutes then turned it off. Pretty bad.

The worst. Ever.

[whispering]
That's because it's "Piece of Me." Singular.

Ashlee Simpson sings "Pieces of Me." Plural.

;)

which brings up an excellent point, WeeMo. Ashlee Simpson's Pieces of Me is more deserving of Best Video due to someone actually remembering the title!!

i watched the first hour then threw in the towel! britney def looked good...but totally sucked at delievering the two lines she had. And her Pieces of Me video sucks!

Andréa said...

I TRIED to watch but it was pitiful. I thought it was just me, glad to know it wasn't. Plus, I thought the opening act of him saying vote for Obama was shit! THere are 9 million impressionable minds out there and you should book someone with an biast opinion. He should have bashed them both, not just McCain. Not to mention the stuff about the promise ring... ok move on, it wasn't funny the first time and AGAIN you have impressionable teenage minds you are bending. I was disgusted!

piece of me is actually kind of a good, catchy song. although i've never seen the video either. i think that the vmas are sort of pointless now that mtv doesn't show videos. i didn't love brand either.
they've really flopped the last couple years. and i was glad to see britney acting normal, even if she was rocking yet another terrible weave.

Susie said...

omg you've never heard "Piece of Me"??? Favorite song ever!! Not kidding. I'm not even a Britney fan, but that song never fails to put me in a good mood. Family and friends laugh at me. Must listen!!

I tried to watch. And failed. We're old.
