11 of the many, many questions we have about the VMAs

Justin Biebers tears, Justin Bieber’s hair. So many questions.

1. What was going on with Justin Bieber’s hair?

Like…. what?

Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow called. They want their creepy matching mid-nineties haircuts back.

Justin, we’re going to have to turn this on its head and ask WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

3. How icy was Selena Gomez’s reaction to Justin Bieber’s tears?

Stop! Collaborate and listen! Ice is back with a brand new….

We think you know where we’re going with this. Bieber’s on-again/off-again love Selena was as cold as ice during his river of tears.

4. Miley, what are you wearing?

6. Where does one look during Miley v Nicky?

Remember a few weeks ago when we couldn’t look at but couldn’t not look at the car crash that was Taylor Swift and Nicky Minaj’s Twitter row over the MTV VMA nominations?

Minaj felt she had been snubbed, and then Swift took umbridge at the criticism, thinking it was directed at her. Then VMA host Miley Cyrus got involved, throwing some #shade Minaj’s way in an interview with the New York Times last week.

While Swift and Minaj appear to have made friends, because they performed together last night at the VMAs…


… while Nicky had some words for Cyrus while collecting her away for Best Hip-Hop video.

You know who I want to thank tonight? My pastor,” Minaj said. “I love you so much. And now, back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me in the press. Miley what’s good?


Miley responded by suggesting her words had been manipulated by the Times. But we’ve read the interview Miley, we’ve all read the interview.

7. But was it even real?

Gawker is suggesting that the Minaj/Cyrus VMA spat was orchestrated for the cameras, citing Minaj’s performance with Swift, Nicky’s smile during the car crash segment which is suggested as indicating that “Manj couldn’t even be bothered to keep up the charade”, and this image which went up “suspiciously quickly” on the MTV instagram account.

Bit early on a Monday morning for raw mince, isn’t it?

8. Did you see Rebel Wilson’s face during Miley v Nicky?

Wilson’s face was the equivalent of all of our faced whenever someone drops a ‘SHURRUP YOU, YEH TICK YEH’.



9. Can we become American citizens in time to vote for Kanye for president?


Kanye gave an 11 minute speech last night (because of course he did) during which we announced that he was planning to run for president in 2020.

He also announced that he had smoked a little something before coming on stage to take to the edge off.

10. Can Kanye please sit down?

During The Weekend’s performance of Can’t Feel My Face, Kanye got up for a dance, maybe because he couldn’t feel his face.


Sit down you eejit! John Legend can’t see!

11. Can you name all of Taylor Swift’s clatter of pals?

#SquadGoals, or whatever.
