Who Watched the VMAs?
Posted September 14, 2009 by Rachelle Owen
Oh MTV VMAs, you toy with my emotions! One minute I’m in awe of the Michael Jackson tribute, next I’m loving Lady Gaga and her handsome date—Kermit the frog, the next minute I’m stoked on Katy Perry channeling her inner Freddie Mercury (Queen, anyone?), and then I found myself wagging my finger at my TV all like: “Oh no you didn’t, Kanye!”
But in all seriousness, let’s talk about my favorite performance of the night—a creative and jaw-dropping show from our friend Pink! If you missed out, most of her performance was done off the stage and up in the air for her take on a circus trapeze act while singing her hit song “Sober.”
Once penning a letter to Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley in support of an elephant-protection ordinance that would eliminate the use of elephants in Chicago’s circuses by banning the use of bullhooks and electric prods, there was really no doubt in my mind that Pink’s circus performance would be free of animals. Kudos, Pink!
