Whatcha Say: The Good, The Bad & The Calderone In This Week’s Reader Comments
With the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards now in the rear view mirror, we’re able to pinpoint several watercooler moments that the event offered up. That said, our readers were divided on how they felt about the show overall, and they certainly seemed to have a love or hate attitude toward the omnipresence of Lady Gaga’s male alter ego Jo Calderone during the whole two-and-a-half hours. Read what the comments that came in about the VMAs below!
:: Justin M. was equally dissatisfied: “Adele’s beautiful and emotional performance and Beyonce’s high energy performance were the ONLY redeeming things in the entire show. Don’t even get me started on ‘Joe Calderone.’ Gaga is trying too hard, and is just humiliating herself and losing fans.”
:: Danny couldn’t help comparing two of pop’s biggest queens: “I didn’t know Britney was so much taller than Gaga. She’s quite a shorty.”
:: Dustin Farmer was hardly over the moon (man) on Review Revue: The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards: “MTV needs to trim the fat. I feel like I only saw 4 awards go out. Jessie J was awkward. Gaga was (as much as it hurts me to say) awkward as well. Beyonce, Adele, and Bruno Mars were amazing. I really wanted the Britney Spears tribute to be over the top and well thought out, instead it was a let down. Someone should be fired.”
:: James felt that the whole thing was simply monstrous: “I was very disapointed with the Britney Spears Tribute!! It was so poorly produced and it should have been just as over the top as her Iconic performances!! I think MTV should do a 2 hour tribute special to Britney to make up for that god awful tribute!! And didnt it seem like Lady Gaga was totally hogging the stage when Britney recieved the award??”
:: Ferlenwohnung sized things up on Lady Gaga Takes Dressing Like A Man Very Seriously, Wears Fake Penis At VMAs: “Every VMA has its something to remember, I sure remember the kiss this year!”
