Lady Gaga And Other Highlights Of The VMAs

The 2010 VMAs has just wrapped and several semi-interesting things happened: Lady Gaga dominated the evening winning 8 awards, thanked the gays, wore a dress made of meat; Taylor Swift debuted her Kanye West diss track; Cher wore transparent black; Lindsay Lohan mocked herself; the official VMAs social media coordinator smoked some crack, had a tweet.

Lindsay Lohan was back for her first onscreen appearance since her time in the slammer. She was flexing her comeback muscles in an inspired guest spot in Chelsea Handler’s opening: “Wake up, Handler! Do you think anyone wants to work with a drunk? Take it from me – they don’t.”

It has been exactly one year since the Kanye West stage-jumping incident and Taylor Swift got back on stage premiering a new song called “Innocent”. Lyric excerpt: “I guess you really did it this time / Lost your balance on a tightrope, lost your mind trying to get it back / Everyone of us has messed up too / 32 is still growing up.” For serious.

Kanye also premiered a new track at the awards that seemed to follow a similar (though more profane) theme to T-Swift’s.
