Paris working the Blackberry while smoking a ciggie. Christina Aguilera’s dancers claiming they “nailed it” after their performance. Kid Rock saying that he “feels like an old man.” All the particulars of the evening’s action as seen through the lens of MTV’s Buzzworthy blogger is here for your perusal. Don’t be shy. Peek behind the curtain…
Lots of news from the Paramount party zone in L.A., the site of this year’s VMAs. With the show starting in an hour, Britney‘s cooling her heels in her dressing room. Paramore’s Haley Williams, whose band is competing with Kid Rock for “Best Video of the Year” award, says what would really thrill her is shaking Spears’ hand (what, no tongue kiss a la Madge?). Lauren Conrad & Chase Crawford will be handing out a prize, Tokio Hotel rocks as hard at rehearsal as they do during a real show, and Rihanna warms up her throat by belting out Jonas Bros hits.
Above is a classic clip of Britney doing her thing a few years ago. Make sure you’re tuning-in at 9 pm ET to find out who makes the biggest splash.
Yes, there was Madonna writhing in her wedding gown with her “Boy Toy” belt singing “Like a Virgin.” And Britney with that snake and that pillow talk opening statement (“I know I may be young, but I’ve got feelings, too/and i need to to do what i feel like doing/so let me go…”) during the “I’m a Slave 4 U” stage show. Indeed there have been lots of killer performances at the VMAs. Kanye’s “Gold Digger,” TLC’s “No Scrubs” – we’ve put a bunch together in a video songlist that contains these and lots more.
They’re getting everything tight at L.A.’s Paramount Studios, the site for this year’s MTV VMA’s show. Tight meaning rehearsals, tight meaning pre-party interviews, tight meaning fun. Check the video player above for Kid Rock romping through “All Summer Long.”
Watch the show on MTV Sunday night at 9 pm.
You know, Kanye West says a lot of stuff. Some of it is simple, courage, and profound, like his “George Bush doesn’t like black people” proclamation in the wake of the Katrina nightmare. But some of it is glib, pissy, and untrue, like his promise to never return to MTV after his 2007 performance was positioned somewhere other than the main stage. Well, never fear. Rap’s biggest name will do his thing at the 2008 VMAs party this Sunday night at 9 pm ET – on MTV. He’s part of a gathering crowd of stars participating in the annual show, including Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and host Russell Brand.
…in which Margaret learns that any situation is endurable so long as you’re dressed as Laura Ingalls. Or, I don’t know, a Holly Hobbie doll.
The VMAs has its pie-in-the-face silly moments, but we’re expecting that there will be a big dose of glamor this Sunday night on MTV – people like to see their celebs looking sharp. As you can see from above, even Paris Hilton tried to do the leopard print Zsa Zsa Gabor routine when arriving at the show last year.

America’s premiere boy band (sorry New Kids) can’t just jump on any old stage and do their thing – the vibe must be exactly right. Especially on a show as key as MTV’s annual Video Music Awards, which airs Sunday night at 9 ET.
Fans who want to get a sneak peek at the faux Brooklyn brownstone that Moe, Larry, and Curley Nick, Kevin, and Joe will be rocking in front of should check out the pictures right here.
New York strutted her stuff during last week’s Celebrity Catwalk charity event. From the looks of it, she was heavy on the sashay and even heavier on the shanté. Peep full shots at Cutie Central and watch the video below of New York on the red carpet. She talks about her newfound vegetarianism and implies that it doesn’t apply to (A-HEM) all meat. Oh, New York! You’re such a maneater!
