Britney Spears cleaned up tonight at the VMA’s! She opened the show, as promised, with a short comedy sketch with â€˜Superbadâ€™ actor Jonah Hill, before walking from her dressing room to the stage to introduce the ceremony. Standing O for Brit as she walked on stage.
Britney was a triple threat tonight, taking home Best Pop Video, Best Female Video, and Video of the Year for “Piece Of Me”. Britney won her first VMA EVER tonight, and then proceeded on to a night of major victory! “I’m in shock,” Britney said, after accepting her third award of the night from NBA star Kobe Bryant. She looked healthier and happier than we’ve seen her be in years. Congratulations, Britney-girl. You deserve your moonmen.
Host Russell Brand pissed off a lot of Jonas Brothers fans with his continuous digs at their purity rings and decisions to put off sex until marriage. He also drug poor Levi Johnston, Sarah Palin’s soon-to-be son in law into the mix. Russell must have gotten a little scolding backstage ‘cuz he had to backtrack and apologize to teens for his rants. STFU!
Here’s Britney’s winning video, “Piece Of Me”.
Awesome performances by Rihanna, Christina Aguilera with a fab New Wave “Keeps Gettin’ Better”, Lil Wayne, Ting-Tangs, Katy Perry, Paramours, The Jonas Brothers, Kid Rock and Kanye West closed the show with his new “Love Lockdown”. Awesome. Kanye wasn’t pissed either! Congrats to Germany’s Tokio Hotel in an upset for Best New Artist! And somebody give Russell Brand a purity ring. For grins. For those of you who missed the show, here’s 411mania’s live-blog of the event… and here are the live performances!
