I heard that Britney Spears was going to open the Video Music Awards on MTV tonite, so I most definitely wanted to tune in. Having been an enormous Britney fan for years, (recent poor behavior excluded!), I wanted to make sure I saw her performance. Or better yet, her opening "speech"???!! I was under the impression she was going to sing and perform, but NO! OK, first disappointment of the evening. Secondly, another MAJOR reason I was watching the VMA's was to see the cast of Twilight, who were literally on screen for about 10 seconds and you could barely see them. Boo! And third, my biggest disappointment of the night, this jerk in the picture below. EW! (And no, I am NOT talking about Britney!!!!!)
This guy with the fly-away hair is some stupid comedian or something???? I really don't know what his deal is, I guess I'm too "old" to get all this popular VMA stuff anymore.... anyways! This guy was the host of the show and in his first few moments on stage, decided to make a MUSIC VIDEO AWARD show into a freaking political pep rally for the Democrats!!! Now correct me if I have something wrong, but when did the VMA's turn into Obama's personal campaign show???
I am sure most of you can recognize that I am a Republican, and proud to be one. No, I don't agree with Republicans across the board, but for the majority, they stand for what I believe in. So I don't appreciate tuning into an entertainment show, only to be accused of standing behind a "retarded cowboy" President who "isn't trusted with a pair of scissors". And yes, he used that exact phrase. And he also insinuated that if you don't vote for Obama, you are "racist"!!!!! WHAT?! I am anything BUT, and am so offended by this creep-o man that is "entertaining" the youth of America. Russell Brand (that's his name, I just googled him!) was also making fun of Sarah Palin's daughter, calling her pregnancy a "publicity stunt"! And then he closed his speech with this quote: "To new music, a new President, and a brand new America! And you people deserve it after eight years of Bush." YO RUSSELL, you are BRITISH, keep your opinions about the American presidency to yourself, buddy. All I have to say is EW. Makes me disgusted.
