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.

11 Terrible Things Better Than Donald Trump Becoming President

If you keep up with modern day America, you should probably know that the Presidential elections are taking place is 2016. We have one year left to decide who has stolen our vote and the candidates are coming out swinging.

Another key fact you should probably know is that Donald Trump is running for president. I’ll repeat that just in case I lost anyone due to trauma: Donald Trump is running.. for.. President. That’s right.

So, what? It’s not like anyone actually wants Trump to run our country. Who would ever choose him over Hilary Clinton or Bernie Sanders? GUESS AGAIN, FRIENDS. He is LEADING in several polls across the U.S. Just when I was starting to get really proud of America for making progress in society (Obama being president, Hilary Running…). Is it too soon to start looking for places in Canada?

I’ve decided to compile a list of some pretty bad things that would be BETTER than Donald Trump being elected for President in 2016. Here they are:

11. George Lopez Punchlines on Repeat ALL DAY

Lopez may be painful to listen to when it comes to comedy, but OH DOES HE HATE THE DONALD. We could live with a little “WATCHA”.

10. IKEA Going Out of Business

How WILL WE EVER survive without the fine Swedish craftsmanship? And what about all those hours spent trying to understand the instructions? If you’re a lover of all things IKEA, this will be hard for you, but much better than… need I say it?

9. Coffee Drought

Goodbye Starbucks and Dunkin’. The beans are all burnt up from the rage of America for Donald running for Prez. Let’s kick the Caffeine addiction if it means no Trump in office.

8. Polar Ice Caps Melting

It’s happening anyway, keep up the pollution, Gang!

7. No. New. iPhones.

HOLD THE PHONE, literally. Stopping at the iPhone 6 may seem like an okay way to end it. You never miss what you’ve never had.

6. Student Loan Rates Rise Above 20%

I mean, what’s like 10% more than what they already are? We will probably get there soon anyway, so let’s take it like champs to keep away GRAMPS (Trump).

5. Grandparents Following You on Social Media

Hopefully you’re up for talking about the sweater you knit and what cookies you’re making for the rest of your life.. cause Grandma’s got an eye on ya. Family loves you unconditionally, so we will survive a few mistakes online. AGAIN, BETTER THAN TRUMP BEING PRESIDENT.

4. Outlawing Dog Ownership

Cute, cuddly and GONE FOREVER. A world with no puppy companionship would be a sad world, but nothing compared to the sad America we would see with Trump running the game. Ruff Ruff.

3. Any Other Republican Candidate Winning

They all suck. (If you’re a Republican here’s your cue to leave). But if having one of them take office is the only way to save us from The Donald.. bring em’ on.

2. Chipotle Getting Rid of Guacamole

Closest thing to the end of the world. But, if it would mean no Trump, I think we could live without having to pay an extra $1.95 (maybe).

1. Having Jared Fogle Invite you to a Sleepover

This is probably the worst thing I could think of which is why it earned it’s spot as #1 on this list. (If you haven’t heard, the ex-Subway spokesman is guilty of Child Pornography and other gross molestation nasty shenanigans). Let’s just hope Fogle is rotting in prison by the time this presidential campaigning heats up.
