Here are just a couple of the rumors I’ve heard:
1) All the Criss Angel illusion shit got cut at the last minute, because the hotel couldn’t get insured for it.
2) Britney was upset beforehand because she’d heard that Sarah Silverman was going to talk shit about her and her kids (a monologue which I found hilarious, but Silverman definitely bombed with the MTV audience). I guess MTV asked Sarah to cut that part from her act, but Sarah chose to ignore that request.
3) Britney was upset going on because Criss Angel hadn’t met up with her the night before, and was quoted as saying the two weren’t a couple.
Any of these reasons were NO excuse for the show Britney put on!!!
According to Us Weekly, after her dismal VMA showing, Britney was “crying badly [backstage]. She’s devastated. She was really nervous and knows she screwed up.”
She also fired her hairdresser right before she went on. Best decision she made all night!!
If you haven’t read my (scathing) official review of Brit’s performance, you can check it out here, on Film.com.
While she was on stage performing, Tommy Lee and Kid Rock were in the audience doing this.
“That’s two years in a row, man … give a black man a chance. I’m trying hard man, I have the … number one record, man.”
Kanye West, after yet another VMA snub. West says he’ll never return to MTV.
Pamela Anderson’s pussy is some powerful shit.
Yes, indeed, Tommy Lee and Kid Rock, both at one point married to the vixen, came to blows during Alicia Keys’ VMA performance.
“It looked like Tommy Lee initiated it because Kid Rock was ignoring him,” said an observer sitting two tables away. “And Tommy Lee kind of antagonized him. And then when Tommy Lee stood up, it looked a little weird, like ‘Yo, what?’ When Tommy stands up is when Kid hit him the first time with a backhand. And then Tommy Lee looked like he was trying to get at him to aggressively retaliate and then Kid Rock hits Tommy Lee again — bong. And then security grabs Tommy Lee in a headlock and pulls him off.”
Tommy Lee was ejected from the show, but Kid Rock got to stay for the rest of the night.
Since Kid Rock threw the only punches that landed, it seems Tommy Lee is pressing charges. Las Vegas police were looking for Kid Rock later that night.
The only saving grace was Chris Brown’s performance. That shit rocked. Everything else was so stupid.
Memo to MTV: don’t ever, ever host a live performance in Las Vegas again. If anyone wants a job as a producer for MTV, I have a feeling there are going to be a few spots opening up in the coming days.
Everyone was drunk, obnoxious and boring. And did Kid Rock really get in a fight with Tommy Lee? I can’t wait to hear the whole story on that. That might be my favorite part of the whole night, except for when Jennifer Garner announced that “Gym Class Fallout” had won for Best New Artist, while Jamie Foxx carried on a conversation with Diddy from the stage. Super professional, guys. Awesome.
Did anyone actually enjoy tonight’s show?
