If you were expecting something controversial to happen at this year’s Video Music Awards, you didn’t get it, thankfully. But there were some decent performances, and that nagging feeling that we were all too old to be watching the show.

Excuse me while I dance in front of a wall and pound on it with my fists. It’s my signature move.
