I'm watching the VMAs on MTV right now, as is my mother. I told her to tune in for Britney's big "comeback," which ended up to be a huge disappointment. Bitch didn't bring it at all. My mom, on the other hand, did.
I thought she'd tune out after Britney performed, but she called me during the first commercial break, right after seeing Kanye sing...
"I didn't understand a thing he said," she said.
"Who?" I asked.
"That Conway Twitty guy."
"Whatever. I don't know who any of these people are. The only people I recognize are Beyonce and Justin Timberland."
"That's what I said. Where are all the normal people, like Cher?"
"I don't think Cher's making an appearance this year. "
"Well, she's still very relevant. She's taking over for Celine Dion when she leaves Vegas."
"I didn't know that."
"Now you do."
A little later, on Adam Levine...
"Do you know who he is, Mom?" I asked.
"He's the lead singer for a band called Maroon 5. He's supposedly a big playboy and gets into everyone's pants."
This surprised my mom. "He does?"
"Well, he's not getting into mine."
Ha ha... I love her.
PS - How good did Dr. Dre look? Has he always been this cut?
PPS - International readers... I don't think MTV is letting you watch the video of Brit's performance. (Some copyright thing.) Here's another link to it.
