2014 MTV Video Music Awards Post Mortem

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards never fails to generate lots of talking points. I’ve been following the VMAs for at least 10 years now and there has been no doubt that things have tamed down a lot compared to before but the talking point moments still exists.

The biggest highlight of the 2014 edition of the MTV VMA (for me) has got to be Nicki Minaj’s almost wardrobe malfunction:

I’m pretty sure it wasn’t that funny for Nicki Minaj but it sure was very funny as an audience.

Initially, we were wondering why Nicki Minaj came out grabbing her dress. It soon became apparent that it’s an almost wardrobe malfunction as Nicki Minaj held onto the front of her dress for the entire performance.

If you look at Jessie J’s dress, you’d think that Jessie J would be the one to have a wardrobe malfunction and flash someone in the front with her dress so short and her slit so high, prancing around on stage.

That said, I also loved the opening performance by Ariana Grande (Problem), Nicki Minaj (Anaconda) and Jessie J (Bang, Bang).

JESSIE J FTW!! o/

While I’ve never really been a fan of Taylor Swift’s music (it’s just not really my type of sound) but I really liked her performance of “Shake It Off”. It’s great fun!

Usher’s performance was also good. It has a pretty retro and old-school kinda vibe to “Give It To You”. I like. And that’s how it should be done at the VMAs people.

While like almost everyone I know were spazzing over Beyoncé’s performance, I was like “meh…” It was just a tad too long and draggy for me. I’d rather she just sing like one or two full songs. And when I say, sing, I mean sing. The entire of the 15 minutes or so medley wasn’t really singing at all, it was halfway between singing and rapping… I don’t know.

Overall, I’d said it was a good show. Lots of talking points. Look out for it. Hahahaha.
