The home of Biggie, Jay-Z, Junior's Cheesecake and the muscle of New York City is where the moon man landed for the 2013 VMAs. The background for the red carpet was filled with big and beautiful brownstones. The energy of the VMAs merged the chic and urban style that only a place like Brooklyn can provide. It is that perfect balance between the grit of NYC and the dreams of the bragadocious natives. Here may not be all the reasons, but none the less, five reasons you should have watched the VMAs.
If your favorite moment was Kevin Hart's witty commentary, Miley's grind time moments, Justin Timberlake's amazing medley or just the entire show being in Brooklyn, it was a show filled with variety and excitement.
What did you like about this years VMAs?
Everyone Loves Justin
J.T. always puts a million percent of his energy on stage for his performances. He made sure to tell everyone, “I still run this b@&^%!” as he killed the VMA stage. Justin Timberlake made Kanye West look lazy as he thoroughly went through a medley of songs. Justin Timberlake sang and danced like a true artists… he had the crowd going crazy! It was BIG and beautiful. This cat even brought up N’Sync … how dope is that? Â He topped it off by winning the Video Of The Year for “Mirrors” and the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Faces In The Crowd
Rihanna’s face and energy was priceless as she was caught on camera as Drake performed. The Smith family facial expressions were also caught as Miley Cyrus twerked her little rump-shaker for the world to watch.
Kevin Hart aka
Kevin kept saying that he wasn’t the host but he could have fooled us the way he was on stage. (We hope they cut the check.) Kevin Hart got on how out of shape some of the NSync members were. He didn’t hesitate to let everyone know that Lady Gaga was blessed in the back. He basically had something to say about everything and everyone. We don’t really mind because he makes everything sound funny.
Miley Cyrus twerking with bears and on Robin Thicke (What didÂ Paula Patton say to Robin that night? lol) is just a little taste of how crazy she can get. If you didn’t see her in action it is something that you have to see and doesn’t get old because she tries but she might need some butt injections to get her point across. Ms. Cyrus also put her huge hand to work as she rubbed it against some of her more private areas. Singers at the end of the day are entertainers and Miley Cyrus is very much an entertainer that seems to be enjoying entertaining others.
Brooklyn, Brooklyn, Brooklyn
Brooklyn has been going through a wonderful transformation for the last decade. It went from being the gritty no mans land where you were more likely to get robbed then get a greeting of good morning. Now you can watch Brooklynites comfortable riding bikes and going to their yoga classes. Things have changed for the home of Biggie and Jay. MTV did an amazing job of highlight some of the dopest locations of Brooklyn. They highlighted the beautiful brownstones, they used the bridges as a backdrop and also rocked out at the new Barclay Center.
