Thoughts on the VMA’s

I know I'm a couple days behind, but in my defense I didn't get to watch the show until Monday night. 
Britney Spears was terrible.  She was obviously not ready to perform.  I'll admit she physically looked better than I expected, but even still she should not have been wearing that little outfit of hers. Between that "outfit" and her "dancing" it was just plain sad.   However, if you're MTV, who cares.  She helped bring in more viewers than last year. 
Sara Silverman was just plain mean.  I usually find her marginally funny, and I'll admit to laughing a little at her routine, but come on, lay off the Britney jokes.  She's such an easy target it doesn't take much skill to mock her. 
Jamie Fox's shameless plug for his new movie was extremely annoying.  Jamie, when you're at an award show presenting an award, read the cue cards and present the award.  It's not all about you.
Those suite performances were a terrible idea. Whoever thought 30 second clips of different bands performing enter-spliced throughout the program would be interesting television should be drug out to the street and shot.  I would have loved to see more that 30 seconds at a time from the Foo Fighters, Fall Out Boy and Kanye West. My attention span is a little longer than that.  Give me a little credit MTV. 
If you ask me, Chris Brown and Rihanna were the highlight of the show.  They were the only act that even resembled entertainment. 
All in all, I would have to saw that it was an incredibly boring show, and a waste of my time. I can't believe I sat on my couch watching that garbage. Perhaps I'll think twice about watching next year.
