Today wraps up one of the most talked about weeks in pop music in a very long time, thanks to the 2013 MTV VMAs sparking both controversy and excitement. Miley Cyrus definitely had the best week ever – or worst, depending how you look at it. Her shocking VMA performance with Robin Thicke caught the eyes of many and led to numerous responses. She also announced a BANGERZ collaboration with Britney Spears!
In the midst of the VMA insanity, Danity Kane announced their return to music, Eminem plans to resurrect Slim Shady on his forthcoming album and – the biggest surprise - *NSYNC finally reunited on the VMA stage! Lady Gaga also had major moments this week, as the pop diva teased new tracks “Swine” & “Manicure” as well as announcing ARTPOP collaborations with Too Short & RedOne. Fergie became a mommy, Christina Aguilera released a “Let There Be Love” video for her fans, Jay Z & JT premiered the “Holy Grail” video on Facebook and “Blurred Lines” is STILL #1 for the 12th week in a row. Whew!
Check out some of this week’s best comments below!
:: When we asked what Drake was thinking during Miley’s twerk-tastic performance at VMAs on Facebook, Adam L. was our favorite mindreader: “Started from the bottom…now I’m HERE. (In front of Hannah’s Montana.)”
:: em pretty much has the best (& longest) comment of the week on 2013 MTV Video Music Awards: Review Revue: “I am still trying to figure out why Beetle-juice (robin thicke) is f@$%ing Minnie Mouse (miley Cyrus)…she def was telling Disney to go screw. She can’t stop but somebody please do so. It was not sexy…it was tacky. There were no blurred lines. That crossed the line. Tell Mr. Thicke to give Marvin Gaye his beat back. Miley was not twerking. That was the stripper booty shake…too much pot or something is the only plausible explanation for this train wreck performance and the army of Kanye bears. The only thing to learn from this is Miley has penis envy and it’s floppy at that. Bad news bears. VMAs killed quality musical performances. Bear with Miley as she tries to be thicke like Robin? It was a mind- f@#$ing performance…everyone is left scratching their heads and wondering what the heck just happened. They both seem like they are a little lost and confused and trying to figure themselves out with the help of foam fingers.”
On 2013 MTV Video Music Awards: 12 Moments That Went Viral – Rihanna’s Shade, Miley’s Butt & The Influence of Xtina, Brandie King said: “I think everybody should definitely be giving props to Rihanna for keeping a straight face when confronted by Miley’s horrendous performance!”
:: Controversy is always imminent when Beyonce‘s name gets thrown into the mix, as seen on Tamar Braxton Channels Beyonce In Sexy “Hot Sugar” Video: Watch A Preview. Kelly came for Tamar’s wig: “You idiot thats what she tell you Mariah is not her Idol mariah dont dance on the stage the way Beyonce do, Tamar is trying to act like beyonce I know it everyone see it she need serious help I can’t wait for toni to drop her Album! Let me close the book Tamar is 38 just starting her career what a fail, Beyonce is 31 and has sold over 130 million albums world wide she is loved all over the world and shes a billionaire Tamar its to late bitc* to catch up, wont you throw up when you look in the mirror because you ugly on the inside and out you have no class or grace, you’ll never be the queen bee now Bow Down!”
:: After the news of Britney Spears & Miley Cyrus working together, xSushi said on Britney Spears-Miley Cyrus ‘Bangerz’ Collaboration Confirmed: If anyone can teach a Disney girl how to go bad, it’s Britney… Bitch!
:: On Miley Cyrus’ MTV VMA Performance Upsets Parents Everywhere: Morning Mix, carlos quipped: “I hope she keeps that thing of putting her tongue out every minute long enough for someone to throw something into her mouth and put it on youtube.”
