Well No One Likes Kanye Anymore

Overall I thought the MTV Video Music Awards were a lot of fun this year.  As I said before, I am not a fan of Russell Brand at all.  Most of his comments are inappropriate, stupid, and just not funny.  But he really did not have a huge presence at the award show so I was happy.  The show opened with Madonna speaking and then the Michael Jackson tribute, which was wonderfully done.  The tribute included a live performance by Janet Jackson, as well as a sequence of dance performances accompanied by Michael Jackson music videos in the background

The first award of the night was for Best Female Video, which Taylor Swift won.  Kanye West, in the most surprising and talked about moment of the night, walked on stage, took the microphone from her, and said, "Yo, Taylor.  I'm really happy for you.  I'm gonna let you finish but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.  One of the best videos of all time!"  Whether or not you agreed with Taylor winning (which she totally deserved), Kayne had no right to interrupt her speech like that.  It was so rude and inappropriate.

Besides Kanye's little interruption, the show included some great performances.  Lady Gaga sang and covered herself with blood before hanging from the ceiling and... well I'm not quite sure what she did.  It was interesting though.  Beyoncé sang Single Ladies and totally rocked it out.

But the best moment of the night was seeing, even if just for a brief moment, Taylor, Kristen, and ROBERT as they presented the brand new trailer for New Moon.

And, just in case you *gasp* missed the show, here is a list of the winners:
