Bonus: MTV Video Music Awards


by Claude Julian

The MTV Video Music Awards red carpet tops the fame New York City Fashion Week, where you spot Hollywood’s music megastars creating fashion buzz. Millions around the world are fixated with the outrageous fashion statements that these music trendsetters unveil. While outrageous fashion statements are pretty much expected at the annual event, which has been marked by everything from Lil’ Kim’s pasty disaster to Lady Gaga’s wacky meat dress, this year, we were shocked for a whole different reason.

Taylor Swift and Rihanna looked sophisticated and chic in all-white ensembles, while Katy Perry and Pink exuded elegance in long gowns. Rihanna: The controversial singer wore a white, slinky backless dress that was one of the night’s most stunning outfits. Nicki Minaj fail short with her Bozo influenced full (canary yellow & pink) up do with a black with red trim lacey jumpsuit that hugged her deliciously shaped assets. Nicki is too beautiful to fall short of her glowing wild standard. Miley Cyrus wearing Emilio Pucci dress wows her fan base with a Mohawk influenced blonde hairdo. Some of her fans are not ready for her alter ego to take center stage.

Rihanna’s kicking off the festivities with a mash-up of her latest songs, most memorably, “We Found Love” with the balloon drop that the DNC could not pull off and security guards pushing fans away from the pop-hip-hop star. Funnyman Kevin Hart hosted the MTV Video Music Awards with his in-your-face dose of reality comedic delivery. “Mistakes” that’s the message Hart wanted to make clear during his opening monologue at the VMAs this year. Before speaking to the assembled crowd at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Hart walked up to the stage like a Heavyweight boxing champ with so much fanfare that one would think he was actually meant to attend the Democratic National Convention. The confusion wasn’t helped by Hart’s entourage of secret service agents comprised purely of little people.

“I don’t know if MTV made a mistake. I told MTV that I was going to need a little security. I think they took it a little literally,” he cracked once reaching the stage. “But that’s okay. Those guys did a good job!”

As it turned out, Hart had mistakes on the mind. From the comedian’s perspective, many of the artists and celebrities attending the 2012 VMAs were guilty of mistakes of their own — chief among them Drake and Chris Brown, who were on dueling sides of a bar brawl in June. Hart, a self-declared friend of both men, attempted to use the VMAs as a platform to take the blown-out-of-proportion beef and “nip it in the bud.” From his perspective, Drake wasn’t trying to throw a bottle at Brown; instead, he was living up to his Canadian roots and trying to recycle the bottle,

“Drake is from Canada. Drake loves to recycle. Drake thought that there was a recycle bin in Chris’ section. He threw the bottle. Chris didn’t see it, because he was dancing,” joked Hart. “When he whipped his head up, he got hit with the bottle. Drake was like, ‘My bad, the bin!’ Chris was Hart quipped. like, ‘You called me a b—-?’ And Drake was like, ‘No! The bin!’ That fight was over a mistake!”

Hart moved on and set his sights on Frank Ocean, targeting the Odd Future artist’s recent decision to speak out about his previous relationship with a man. According to Hart’s account of the situation, Ocean accidentally ousted himself by singing “I’ve been thinking about you, Leroy” instead of “Lisa” during a recording session, leading him to the decision to publicly address his fans about his romantic past.

“Not everybody can do that, but Frank Ocean did. And for that, I commend you, Frank,” said Hart to uproarious applause. “I salute you, sir.” With a few extra jabs tossed out at Kanye, Britney Spears, and Madonna and more just for good measure, Hart and his care-free attitude jumped straight off the stage and into the crowd, held up by the very people who would surely witness a few more mistakes before the night’s end.

Nicki Minaj wins the award for being the most excited about accepting an award. Nicki scores best female video for “Starships,” does not dedicate it to Mitt Romney. GANGNAM STYLE! South Korean rapper PSY, the Internet sensation of the moment, is on stage with Kevin Hart doing the dance that the world is going nuts over. Rihanna takes home the most coveted Moon Man — video of the year for “We Found Love.” She’s elegantly poised, Kevin Hart is screaming like a “little school girl.” Alicia Keys performs her “Girl On Fire” with Nicki Minaj rocked high voltage excitement with a cameo appearance from Olympic Gold Medal Winner Gabby Douglas. Chris Brown accepted award for the Best Male Video “Turn Up The Music.”

And Taylor Swift closes out the show with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Before she takes the stage, Kevin Hart implores the audience to vote on Nov. 6, which makes sense considering MTV moved up the VMAs by an hour so the show wouldn’t conflict with President Obama’s DNC speech.
