The Best Moments of the 2011 MTVA Video Music Awards
Catch up on the highlights of this year’s VMAs!
Didn’t catch last night’s epic broadcast of the MTV Video Music Awards? Never fear! Not only do we have the red carpet rundown, we also have, for your viewing pleasure, the highlights of the evening. Catch the wackiest, wildest, most moving moments of the VMAs right here!
1) Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s Intensely Awkward Pre-Show Interview
Are they together? Are they broken up? After watching this little gem, we think it could go both ways. Selena does her best to stay professional as she asks Justin what he’s wearing and who he’s looking forward to seeing perform; but Justin seems to have an agenda of his own. When he point out that he’s wearing a snake, the double entendre isn’t missed by Selena, who quickly tries to move Justin along. Justin keeps going, though, as he informs her that the snake’s name is Johnson. No accident, that! He closes out the interview by going in for a kiss, which she ducks away from. What do you think, readers? Playful banter or unresolved tension?
2) Lady Gaga’s I Mean, Jo Calderone’s Opening Performance
We’ve come to expect ridiculous outfits and show-stopping, high-tech performances from Gaga, so it was quite the surprise when she came out in the guise of her male alter-ego, Jo Calderone. Jo sat down at the piano dressed in a white t-shirt and black pants with a cigarette tucked behind his ear; later, an entire troop of white t-shirt-clad dancers came out and joined him. Even better? Queen’s shaggy-haired guitar god Brian May came out and jammed, too. Now that’s what I call a winning performance!
3) Beyonce’s Baby Bump Performance
Performing in a sparkly tux, rather than the form-fitting gowns she usually sports, mommy-to-be Beyonce rocked it, baby bump and all.
