By now we've all pretty much come to know what to expect out of the annual MTV Video Music Awards
show. Picture the drunkest moments of your high school prom, add a shit ton of today's hottest music acts, drizzle in some dueling red carpet looks and a couple gallons of spray tan, multiply that by 20,000 commercial breaks and bam! You've pretty much got the whole show.
So yeah, the 2012 VMA's went off last night at the Staples Center live here in LA, and while there was plenty of fresh commotion to report (The Bachelorette's Rebel Wilson rocked out on stage with bushels of pubes on her shirt and a bag of chips, host Kevin Hart opened the show by asking Chris Brown and Drake to squash their bitch fighting beef ), there were also some super fails on deck worth mentioning (the missing MCA tribute, Rihanna's matronly red carpet get-up that made her look less like a young pop diva and more like Gabrielle Douglas' mom-ager, One Direction beating out Frank Ocean and Fun. for the Best New Artist award).
What's that? You're over 17, so you didn't care to catch the show because you were too busy watching President Obama explain to American voters how he needs four more years to finish
fixing the clusterfuck of problems Bush left behind accomplishing his goals for the nation during the last night of the DNC? Not to worry! We've got the skinny on what you missed. Read on for a full run-down of last night's VMA's highlights and lowlights.
