YMCMB @ MTV VMA's 2012



The coolest kids in the business.
I'm really into Lil Wayne at the moment...I always have the unconventional crushes. Maybe it's the tattoos, maybe it's the dreads, or maybe it's because he was sat throughout the event listening to music on his headphones. The coolest.

Round Up: As much as I don't enjoy cheesy pop songs, I love seeing the reactions and losing faces of the artists. Amongst the night's performers was Rihanna doing a combination of Cockiness and We Found Love, One Direction being their perfect boyband selves (much to the dismay of The Wanted) and the beautiful Frank Ocean singing Thinking Bout You with the stage setting resembling a starry night by the campfire. Calvin Harris was the house DJ, he's looking rather good these days. However, Rihanna seemed to forget to mention him when We Found Love won Video Of The Year...nonetheless I am so glad that the video got the recognition it deserved. Where the winners are concerned, I was a little disappointed that Frank Ocean didn't win Best New Artist. I don't mean to be judgemental but I feel like One Direction won purely because of their legion of fans. They are my guilty pleasure but Frank Ocean is just so good.

  1. I totally agree with the Frank Ocean point you made. One Direction seem to have won plenty of awards, most probably because of their army of fans. Heh.
