VMA’S 2015 – SHOW RECAP

The time has come once again for MTV’s most prized possession: The Video Music Awards. Hosted by the wild Miley Cyrus, the night was a whirlwind of barely-there outfit changes and countless F-bombs. But, how can you not admire her confidence? She is who she is!

Nicki Minaj opened the show in an interesting red tribal outfit and during ‘The Night Is Still Young’, she was joined on stage by Taylor Swift (everyone oo’d and ahh’d as this happened, since their Twitter feud was just a few weeks ago). They acted like best friends for the moment (but I feel like it’s not that way once they get off stage).

Miley opened the show with a wild flared-leg, sequined jumpsuit with flowers in her hair. She basically jumps out of a Lisa Frank coloring book (in terms of her looks) at all points during the show. She warned about MTV letting her host, saying they may never have anyone host again. Her outfits got crazier and crazier as the night went on; I loved them all.

The Weeknd performed his hit Can’t Feel My Face. The crowd seemed to love it, with T-Swift mouthing “that was amazing”. He danced inside of FIRE, guys (quite the symbol for how his career is taking off at the moment). I bet Drake is sitting back in a chair somewhere smiling.

Best Female Music Video took us all by storm. It was intense with Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift nominated. All these ladies deserve to win, honestly, but Taylor took it proudly. I know that Beyoncè fans everywhere were falling to the ground in agony while burning Swift’s albums, but that’s just how it goes.

Demi perfomed ‘Cool For The Summer’ and fully KILLED IT, but then Iggy Azalea joined her on stage.. and honestly, I was upset. She really gave it her all, though.

Justin Bieber came out and owned the stage while performing ‘Where Are U Now’. He sang it perfectly and even through in a few riffs while owning every single dance move. I was impressed.

Tori Kelly brought a thing seldom seen at the VMA’s these days: A GUITAR. She did a PHENOMENAL job performing ‘Should’ve Been Us’ and looked LOVELY. Girl, I think you just made a name for yourself (more than before).

Kanye West won the Video Vanguard Award. Taylor Swift presented his award, sharing that his album College Dropout was the first one she bought on iTunes. She even pulled the ‘IMMA LET YOU FINISH’ card, and called him her FRIEND? I guess all is forgiven in the land of Swift and West.

But, then Kanye came on stage and everything broke loose. He apologized to Taylor Swift for his past actions, through a very dramatic monologue.

“You know how many times MTV replayed that again, cause that got them MORE RATINGS?” Kanye slammed MTV during his ‘apology’ (still talking about the incident with Taylor Swift). He also kept repeating “listen to the kids”, which I’m still confused about.

“I just wanted people to like me more,” said West about his actions.

HONESTLY HIS WHOLE SPEECH WAS A WHIRLWIND. You should probably go watch this on youtube.. AND HE’S RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020 I GUESS.

Can we expect any less from Mr. West?

Miley came on stage after saying “well we now know what happens to Kanye West after he smokes weed,” and then “TRUMP YOU HAD MY VOTE, BUT NOW KANYE WEST FOR PRESIDENT.”

After things calmed down, Twenty One Pilots and A$AP Rocky took the stage to perform. What I thought would be a kind of confusing performance turned out to be..um…okay? It was fine. Nothing special.

The Video of the Year award (and final award of the night) went to miss TAYLOR SWIFT for BAD BLOOD, again beating out Beyoncè. I think we all knew it was coming though, it was a big video.

Swift ended her speech with an inspirational quote, “I’m just glad in 2015 we live in a land where boys can play princesses and girls can play soldiers.”

Introduced by some members of the trans community, including Gigi Gorgeous, Miley closed the show with a performance (full of glam drag queens) of a new song?! Her vocals were lovely and the song was all about LOVE. The Happy Hippie gave us something to remember with confetti blowing out of her crotch.

AND SHE DROPPED A NEW ALBUM FOR FREE:

Congrats to all the winners of the night.

Overall, the night was pretty entertaining compared to some previous VMA’s.

MET Gala Fashion 2015 – The Good and The WHAT

The time has come again for fashions finest to showcase their work on celebrities at the Met Gala 2015. The event, which was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, took place May 4th with an interesting theme: China: Through the Looking Glass.

Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, and more took to their Twitter and Instagram accounts early Monday morning to announce their excitement for the evening.

Alexa Chung, Emma Roberts, and Ellie Goulding showed off their hair and makeup via their personal Instagram accounts on the way to the Gala. Ellie captioned her photo “On my way to a low key event”. Well, girl, you’ve got us Starry Eyed.

If there is one time of year to make a big fashion statement and get some recognition.. THIS IS IT.

Who can forget VERY PREGNANT Kim’s floral print dress that stole the red carpet and kept people talking for weeks (not necessarily in a good way)?

Kim wasn’t the only one from the Kardashian clan to show up to the event. Kris and Kendall were both present.

Kendall looked like a green goddess in her Calvin Klein gown.

With huge names and huge fashion at this event, It was hard to choose the best of the night, but I narrowed it down to three BEAUTIFUL ladies:

First, Lady Gaga came and stunned us with her Alexander Wang gown. She not only looked awesome as usual, but she COMPLETELY worked the theme. Looking like a geisha queen, she shut down the red carpet.

And who could even pretend to ignore the Queen B? She came in and caused a buzz with her Givenchy dazzling, sparkling gown. It covered just enough for us to truly appreciate that unearthly body that BeyoncĂŠ owns. I was expecting something great from her, and she exceeded my expectations!

I mean…. Just look at her stance. Completely gorgeous look. BeyoncĂŠ: 1,000 points. Everyone Else… 0.

The last look that earned a spot in this top 3 is the lovely Jessica Chastain. She was a golden goddess shining like a star in the sky. Although she didn’t quite work the theme into her look, she has classic Hollywood style DOWN. She is a true beauty and it shows in her Givenchy gown.

Now for the not-so-good:

Cara Delevigne normally works red carpet events, but last night she certainly did not stand out as a best dressed nominee. She came in a simple, black ensemble by Stella McCartney. She was covered in painted on tattoos of asian-inspired flowers to incorporate the theme, but it did not make up for the outfit, girl.

Is that a can of Green Tea Arizona? Oh, wait no.. It’s Cara Delevigne.

The next to make the list is the one, the only Sarah Jessica Parker. She can normally own the fashion scene, I mean she was on Sex and The City, come on. But, last night, although she totally worked in the theme (she basically became the theme) it was a bit of a nightmare. She looked a bit horrifying.

Just too much going on, SJP.

Overall, it seems the Gala was a success with memorable looks to last us until next year. What can they surprise us with next?
