#OffBeat Music… The 2010 MTV VMAs

Posted on September 13, 2010


SO the MTV Video Music Awards were held last night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and apparently Lady Gaga took home the most with a total of 8 awards. Well good on her is what I say. There were 16 categories in total for the award ceremony and she was nominated in 13 of those categories, 8 of which she won… I suppose it’d be safe to say it was the Lady Gaga Awards then? I’m not mad at that in the least bit! She has owned the last year and a half in Popular music and culture so much so that the only surprise would have been if she didn’t win these awards.

I guess nobody told her that though… Bless her nervous self (lool!)

Anyway Lady Gaga isn’t the reason we’re here today (even though she kinda is)… If like myself, you missed the show last night, I’ve taken the liberty of finding some of the performances from last night I could find (before Viacom gets to them kmt) and I’m gonna paste them all over this post (with or without commentary, who knows? I should just let you watch in peace!)… #PS You can check out the winners list at the bottom of the videos…

OK what the hell was Will.I.Am ON? Like what is he wearing??? #iCant

Usher stays winning via this kid & its NOT fair to wanna mess with the homie money SO I suppose you can’t really stay mad forever but yeah I don’t like the Bieber-mania!!! The kid’s been on Chelsea flipping Handler’s show for crying out loud! #officiallysalty

Oh yeah there was Taylor Swift with her self-righteous bullshit! Let it rest already… The dude has apologised and there was no real need for that right there and the little clip at the beginning of her set? Dramatic much? Oh well, what do I know?

Kanye West for flipping President! #fuckwhatahatergottasay #theend

Other performance on the night were from Usher, Florence + the Machine, Travie McCoy, Drake, Jason Derulo, Bruno Mars, B.o.B, Paramore, Robyn and Linkin Park… Enjoy some of the pictures right below!
