The Best and Worst Dressed Of The VMAs Red Carpet

Moonman2013

 

There were dozens of lists of the most memorable VMA fashion moments, and I doubt any from last night’s show will make any future lists. Though the ladies looked fab, there weren’t any crazy outfits, not even from Lady Gaga. The VMAs are where you get crazy, and literally, show your ass, but we’ll have to settle for some high slits and bare midriffs.

Katy Perry

To promote the theme of her new single “Roar,” Katy Perry wore this animal print Emanuel Ungaro dress. She was a bit upstaged by the lovely girl behind her.

Miley

Miley Cyrus, she tries so damned hard. Here she is in vintage Dolce & Gabbana looking like a reject extra from ‘Selena.’ 

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez looked much better in Versace.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora wore a stunning gown by Alexandre Vauthier. Giving us the train, and blonde bob, I wish Beyonce would have brought to the show.

Ciara and Future

Ciara in sheer Givenchy with her boyfriend, Future.

Ellie Goulding

I liked Ellie Goulding‘s spikey dress, but wondered if she could comfortably sit down in it.

Danity Kane

The lovely, and newly reunited, ladies of Danity Kane

Holland

Holland Roden was a bit overdressed in Naeem Khan, but it was gorgeous.

gaga

Lady Gaga in Prabal Gurung. A bit understated for her, don’t you think?

Robin and Paula

Robin Thicke and wife, Paula Patton

Erin Wasson

Erin Wasson, giving us stank in a very see through Alexandre Vauthier dress.

JHud

Jennifer Hudson in Christian Dior

TLC

I absolutely love T-Boz and Chilli of TLC, but sigh. Ladies.

Willow and Jaden

Willow is working her “smize”, Jaden might be confused as to where he is.

2 Chainz

2 Chainz, because why the hell not?

*NSYNC Creates Official Twitter Account

OH.
OH.

 

So. That happened! There I was, trolling the ‘net, when both Twitter and Facebook seemingly exploded. The reason? *NSYNC was now live, and verified, on Twitter. But, wait! They’re not a group anymore! Au contraire. This is actually something we just don’t know.

Signs, like the “rumored” reunion at the VMAs are certainly pointing to the affirmative, regardless of Lance Bass‘ apparent denial. Is the boy band reuniting for a single VMA performance in honor of Justin Timberlake receiving the ‘Video Vanguard’ award? Or is something more long-term in the works? Or…was the original plan for a one-shot, with the ensuing fan reaction, enough to make the former members rethink their solo statuses? Again, we just don’t know. But it’s very telling that the account obtained over 30, 000 followers in the 4 hours since it’d been created. Clearly, the fans are still around (akin to those of the Backstreet Boys/NKOTB) and there is money to be made. To answer the question posed in their first official tweet, I’m going to say that the mic is definitely on.

In case you weren’t around during *NSYNC’s heyday, this is what you “missed”:

MTV Video Music 2013 Award Nominations

moonman

 

I’ll save you a rant about how MTV doesn’t play videos anymore and get straight to the nominations for the 2013 Video Music Awards. Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars lead the noms, along with newcomers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. So the show is already pretty male dominated, but Pink and Lana Del Rey also get a couple of nods.

The show will be returning to New York where the show will be held at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center, so expect Jay-Z and Beyonce to be there on Sunday, August 25. The winners will receive a special edition Moonman trophy designed by Kaws. You can head over to the official VMAs site to vote for your favorite artists. Here is the full list of nominees!
