2014 MTV Video Music Awards

While I was not intending on posting today I managed to watch the MTV VMAs and had to share some of my thoughts with you. Early disclosure, they are random but that was the point!

The opening was pretty interesting but why was Nicki Minaj holding her top through her collaboration with Jessie J and Ariana Grande? Wardrobe malfunction... !

How ridiculously amazing is JLo's body? This woman is 45 years old and yet she only gets better with age. 

I think Britney and Justin did it better.. but well done Katy for the the throwback! I think they just needed to do something more with the look for it to outdo the original moment. 

Mrs Kim Kardashian West went for a patterned mini dress but she actually ended up looking really casual in comparison to her sisters.

I'm not loving Taylor Swift's outfit choice, this pattern just wasn't exciting enough and I still don't understand why these celebs keep walking around without pants?? However her reaction to Lourde winning the best Rock Music video was super cute!

My most surprising winner is definitely Fifth Harmony for Artist to Watch. While I liked them during their time on X-Factor I really didn't think they were going to beat 5 Seconds of Summer or Sam Smith but hey, girl power, right?

The most sincere performance goes to Sam Smith.. damn can he sing! I tried really hard to find a good clip of it but was unsuccessful, however if I do I'll put it up at a later stage.

However one of the more sincere moments would be when Miley had her friend, Jesse, a homeless youth accept her award for Video of the Year.

I know the internet was buzzing with Beyonce's performance but I'm not feeling particularly overwhelmed with praise but her daughter was pretty cute! 

So, did you watch the show?

I am about to make a post about my thoughts on the VMA's.... I was pretty impressed this year. Last year, not so much.

And Nicki had a wardrobe malfunction. She didn't get a chance to zip it in time so like the bad ass she is, she sang right through it and didn't even care. Love it!

I read some interview that said in every dress rehearsal they did, Nicki Minaj was never once able to get her dress on and zipped up before she hit the stage. They tried to get her to switch dresses and she refused. I just don't get it?
