5 Fingaz Friday: The VMAs

vma

Remember the days when you were totally stoked for MTV’s Video Music Awards to come on because they were pretty much the coolest award show of the fall? Those were the days…sigh. But over the last couple of years, it has become what I will the “Very Many Asses.” I mean this in both the body part that you sit on, as well as the word of endearment towards a stupid person. From Miley Cyrus’ twerking on a Beetlejuice lookalike to Kanye West telling Taylor Swift that she pretty much sucked compared to Beyoncé (Bailey says that this is true)….. it’s just full of asses. Frankly, the show has gone down hill in quality since the days of the epic Britney Spears and NSYNC mashup.

It has lost its spark. It’s something while everyone wants to watch but it’s more so for its trashiness and not for the quality.     It became less about the videos and the performances that happened and who won Moonmen at the event and more about the shock factor. Does anyone really remember who won the Video of the Year award at last year’s VMAs? Probably not. But they definitely remember Miley performing “We Can’t Stop” and the raunchiness of her performance was. Then the only thing we really remember about the 2009 Video Music Awards was the Kanye West incident. When you think of the 1999 and 2000 VMAs, it’s more about the performances and the pageantry of it.

Pretty much, the VMAs have gone down hill and are just 2 hours shambles of what was once a highly regard of award show for teens and anyone in the 20s. Now here are some classic performances to love and miss:

The Death and Funeral of Hannah Montana

It was a sad sad night in the world last night as there was a murder on MTV’s Video Music Awards. Miley Cyrus pretty much whored up the place and scared the billions of people who were watching for the reunion of NSYNC.  Miley Cyrus killed Hannah Montana on that fateful night.  Now, if you haven’t watched this performance then stop reading this and watch it!

Ready now? Good!

Now this performance is going to easily comparable to the infamous Britney Spears performance of “Gimme More” back in 2007 because of the shock factor (Britney was like a zombie and Miley was being a whore with a tongue and a foam finger). Miley twerked…and by twerked and I mean she grinded up on Robin Thicke’s junk. She also had a foam finger and proved that there are many things you can do with a foam fingers and it will still air on MTV uncensored.  She also cut Chuck E Cheese’s face off and made it into outfit to cover up the outfit she stole from Lady Gaga’s dressing room.

I’m starting thing that “We Can’t Stop” is really her giving the world the finger, which she did last night many times. Miley was pretty much that extremely slutty girl at that party that’s so wasted out of her mind, she’s ratchet. Even when she wasn’t performing, she was still acting like she was getting ready to jump on a pole and lick it (I wonder if her tongue was about to fall off because it was out of her mouth so much).

I think this a good time to state that Miley has single-handedly ruined twerking (sorry, Harry Styles) after the twerking up against Robin Thicke and then simulating what looked like motor boating a big black girl butt as she twerk, who gave the best twerk of the night!.

Overall, this performance has scarred me more than Spring Breakers and it honestly seemed like a desperate attempt to get noticed. Whether she’s just being Miley, only her best friend Lesley knows, but it’s safe to say that Hannah Montana is dead. Just like it’s safe to say that Will Smith’s family won’t be inviting her over for dinner anytime soon.
