The only surprise of the night was that Ashlee and Ryan showed up TOGETHER and holding hands. Veeeery interesting ... either they're the best of friends or they are so back together. Dave Chapelle was pretty funny and I actually laughed outloud when the announcer said "Together again, Mandy Moore and Marilyn Manson" -- that was pretty funny. Otherwise, I'll have to give this year's VMAs a big 2 poops on the floor. I am so over Usher and Jay-Z, so so over them. I was reading the offical VMA thread at Say Hey! and someone summed up the whole thing best by saying:
Catwoman was better than this!
I couldn't agree more.
We did click over during the commercials to the closing ceremonies of the Olympics which were not as interesting as the opening ceremonies but, eh, what do you expect? They had a lot of fireworks:
And a lot of dancing. Tonight wasn't that fun entertainment-wise. It was fun hanging out with Erik, VLB and Rod though ... the night's only saving grace.
