MTV Video Music Awards...Lady Gaga hogs mic! Justin Bieber strokes his "Johnson"!
Beyonce left her frizzies at home in favor of stunning cut which suited her pretty facial features, heartthrob Justin Bieber revealed a wicked dark side (is the pop star a cock tease?), and the appearance of Lady Gaga's alter-ego on stage lacked any snap crackle or pop (her performance was downright amateurish, in fact).
For the most part, the MTV Video Music Award broadcast was a smorgasbord of sensual delights.
The hip annual event moved along at a fast clip - and by the time the curtain fell - a celebrated roster of top headlining acts had paraded across the stage.
In a pre-show one-on-one interview with his current squeeze Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber stroked his pet snake (Johnson) and raised a few eyebrows in the process.
What would Freud think?
By the way, Selena - who usually trots down the red carpet impecably attired - ended up a fashion victim last evening.
Her gothically-inspired (?) fright frock reminded me of a game we used to play in my youth.
Neighborhood kids would fold a piece of construction paper in half, then cut out sections along the crease at random.
When the paper-clipping was opened up - mirror images of each cut - ended up creating a fanciful design.
Appropriate for a child's bedroom wall, but too cute and peek-a-boo for a designer gown with serious aspirations.
Nicki Minaj's Japanese-inspired get-up also left a lot to be desired.
Probably one of the most awkward moments on stage occurred when Lady Gaga's alter-ego - Jo Calderone - presnted Britney Spears with the prestigious Michael Jackson Vanguard Award.
Britney was taken aback when Lady Gaga's odd-ball creation attempted to draw her into a passionate clinch.
Worse than that, Lady Gaga showed a shocking lack of taste when she contined to hog the mike (and mug for the cameras) as Britney Spears politey stood by waiting for the opportunity to deliver her acceptance speech.
At this point in her dazzling career ('til now, anyway) , it may behoove the Pop Diva to hire on a artistic director to draw in the reins now-and-then, to ensure the talented songbird doesn't topple into the abyss.
A good time was had by all, nonetheless!
