Adele at the 2011 MTV Video Music Award

Adele is certainly making a lot of waves stateside and winning even more fans over when she sang “Someone Like You” at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

Her voice is strong and emotional as usual. I swear that I had goosebumps as she sang her heart out. If she continued her performance with “Rolling In The Deep” I would probably have started crying at the blogger’s gathering at the MTV Asia’s office. That would have been another highlight of the 2011 VMAs. Hahaha.

However, I do have a gripe. Not with Adele but it’s mostly with MTV I guess. Tell me, HOW THE HELL IS SITTING IN A CHAIR AND SINGING THE ENTIRE SONG FOR “ROLLING IN THE DEEP” A “VIDEO OF THE YEAR”-WORTHY NOMINEE?!?! It could be “Song of the Year” but “Video of the Year”? Seriously!

Adele’s performance at the VMAs was just her standing in front of a microphone stand with a piano and pianist behind her. I thought it was hilarious when I saw a few tweets on the #VMA hashtag like “BREAKING NEWS: Adele is not sitting in a chair”. Hahaha.

Jessie J at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Jessie J, with her blinged up cast and crutches, served as house band for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Those of us who were not at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles only got to see a good 30 seconds or so of Jessie J singing while she sat in her white chair.

It’s such a shame that there are so many people who have no idea who she is. Jessie J is amazing live and is one of the most talented singers out there right now.

Jessie J certainly deserves a spot on the live show itself rather than just as the house band/artist that performs between each commercial break. Shame that she is still unknown stateside.

Anyway, I hope that with this VMA appearance, more people will learn what a true singer can and should sound like!

Katy Perry at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Katy Perry was such a BITCH at the 2011 VMA!!! Either that, or she was drunk. Or both.

She was looking all fine and sweet until she opened her mouth when she picked up the first award for BEST COLLABORATION with Kanye West for E.T.

Katy Perry was giving her acceptance speech and Kanye West snuck up on her from behind. She screamed when she saw Kanye, gave him a hug and proceeded to say, “Kanye, this is where you should interrupt me now.” That’s a dig.

She didn’t stop there! She went on to ask something like, “is this your first moonman? Don’t worry, you’ll have many more to come.” Rubbing it in indeed!

Her bitchiness didn’t stop there really, before she stepped away from the microphone, she was like, “Oh hey Nicki! Hello.” in a pretty callous tone.

Oooooohhhhh. I wonder what’s with all the cattiness between them.
