So much for all that diva warfare: With the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards just around the corner, photos were posted from Barclays Center today showing some of the prime seating arrangements for Sunday’s show. Most notably? Current chart rivals Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are seated right next to each other (hopefully in the front row!), with the bros of fun. (and maybe Lena Dunham, if we’re lucky?) in tow.
In fairness, if things were remotely acrimonious between the divas (as they are with their fans), no doubt more distance would have been imposed here: If anything, it’s likelier that they requested to be seated with each other as a show of solidarity. (That is, so their respective fans would stop sending death threats to one another.) Or maybe they just went along with it. Who knows.
You’ll have to forgive me for burying the lead a little bit, given that a photograph was also posted teasing an appearance from the true queens of pop.
If your heart has been damaged, prepare for all that to be undone.
