    Katy Perry you’re becoming more like Rihanna. You’re only becoming good at releasing catchy singles and becoming a “Singles Queen” but cannot perform or sing your singles well, which is becoming such a disappointment from such an amazing catchy single like “Roar” Work on your artistry.

    Love Justin Timberlake performance, best of the night, with Lady Gaga in second place. Anyone can say what they want about her, but she is a real artist, she can sing, dance, put on a show and play piano. She just needs to stop with the gimmicks! The rest of the performances were decent. Not commenting on Miley Cyrus, which I will only say was tragic to watch, and she is not the only one to blame, Robin Thicke and the two other rappers performances in that mash up set, weren’t good either.

      Rihanna is at least getting better and better with her vocal performances and after Where Have You Been all her single promotion performances were flawfree, so don’t go comparing untalented Katy with princess Riri…

      Everyone keeps forgetting about Bruno Mars, if it wasn’t for the whole 15 minutes long performance with amazing dancing by JT, Bruno would steal the show, he delivered vocally and visually, it was a pure perfection… Gaga’s though seemed a bit rushed, clumsy and her vocals were poor…

      I agree Miley and Robin not worth commenting…

      Macklemore was amazing too… all in all it was a great show!

    BRUNO MARS is now the MALE to BEAT! The MALE Adele.

    I’ve loved Justin since NSYNC’s first single but he needs to sit down now. Annoyed how Xtina’s a “Flop” but Justin is just re-doing her “Back to Basics” era, copying ROBIN THICKE, stealing Chris Brown’s/Michael Jackson’s moves and everyone’s bowing to him like he saved Pop music. The last original thing Justin did was “Future Sex” era, “20/20” is Robin Thicke/Boring throwbacks. Ugh, still like him, but WATCHING BRUNO… BRUNO IS REAL TALENT! I pray he stays around 10+ years!

    Miley — That shit was so sad, she was high on Ecstasy, cocaine or something stronger than weed. I used to think Rihanna or Chris Brown would be the next celeb to overdose, I doubt Miley makes it to 27 alive. The performance was better suited for COACHELLA or some stoner summer festival not VMAS, a taped show that will follow her lifelong career, this was like Britney’s 2007 VMA Gimme More meltdown all over again. I was so amped for this new Miley record, now I’m scared.

    RIAHNNA — looked high as fuck and bored, I’ve never seen Rihanna looking so sad, distant, not even a smile or talking to her friends.

    KATY PERRY — UGH How is she winning in this stupid GAGA/KATY fued perez made up!? I love every katy song, including B sides/Pre fame shit, and this performance was some dry ass Kids Choice awards shit, not VMA level!!! “Roar”‘s chorus is magic tho. “KATYS BIGGEST HIT” that shit is EMBARRASING. Who likes this shit more than “Cali Girls” “Teenage Dream” “Firework” “Part Of Me” “TGIF” or “Wide Awake” Bitch, “UR SO GAY” is better than this Sara Bariellies rip off, they used the same fucking loop as Sara’s song.

    GAGA — The weird intro was perfection. THAT Huge square representing the “BLANK SLATE” you need to be to succeed in “Music Industry” was brilliant!!! The flashbacks to “Just Dance” & “Fame Monster” eras were amazing. (You know if Britney did that for a performance, wearing old costumes, the internet would shut down thanks to Britney stans)

    DRAKE — I’m gay but love mainstream hip hop, could give a fuck about RUN DMC etc, and I only scratch the surface with Tupac/Biggie/Jay and other classic rappers, but GUSH YES, I can look at drake all damn day. He’s so gorgeous, I wish rihanna would let him wife her. Kanye would be so pissed, that combo would shit on Kimye any day of the week.

    Mackelmore – – GReat message and song, disappointed he didn’t give a shout out to ALL THE GAY YOUTH BEING BULLIED TO DEATH DAILY IN SCHOOLS!!!! He should have called anyone who uses the “faggot” word a pussy, or made some statement like that to garner some media attention, creating an true VMA moment. What a letdown.

    Great show. & I’ll take 100 more servings of weird GAGA opera singing over that basic ass boxing routine. Hell, at least Miley garnered attention and was original. (GAGA DEF HAS ASS AND VOCALS!!!)
