2009 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS
Monday, September 14, 2009
The MTV Video Music Awards were broadcast live tonight from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The show began with a surprise appearance from Madonna. Dressed in all black, she was one of the many who paid tribute to Michael Jackson. She called Jackson a "hero" who could make people believe that they could fly. A little much? It continued further downhill from there, as the material girl rambled on and on and on and on about the time she spent with him. She then she felt like we abandoned him when he died. She ended her seven-minute speech saying, "long live the king." When she finally finished, things got good. Big dance tribute to Jacko, which involved his sister, Janet. Really well done. The audience couldn't get enough of it.
Katy Perry and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry then took to the stage for a rendition of "We Will Rock You," that ushered in host Russell Brand.
The most talked about moment came just 25 minutes into the show. Taylor Swift won the moonman for best female video. As the teen made her acceptance speech, Kanye West stormed the stage and said Beyonce should have won. He's nuts!! Very rude and disrespectful. Taylor looked horrified. Beyonce looked shocked. What's worse, they cut her mic so she couldn't finish talking. It's being reported that Taylor Swift ran backstage and burst into tears in her mother's arms after the incident. Kanye's just a jerk. Trying doing that to Diddy and see how it goes.
Lady Gaga is out of her mind. She dresses like she doesn't own a mirror. Her performance of "Paparazzi" was way over the top. It ended with her covered in fake blood looking like she hanged herself. That's great for the young audience. Later on, Gaga was spotted wearing a huge bird's nest around her head and tight red lace covering her face. Just bizarre. The award for worst dressed goes to...
The big award - video of the year - went to Beyonce for "Single Ladies." After Beyonce thanked everyone for the award, she showed the world just how classy she is. She invited Taylor Swift back on stage to re-do her speech.
"I remember being 17 years old up for my first MTV award with Destiny's Child, and it was the most exciting moment in my life. So I'd like for Taylor to come out and have her moment," Beyonce said.
A very moving moment to cap of a wild and unpredictable night.
