MTV put up a good show at this year's Video Music Awards. The channel did put a lot of effort in making sure that the event went on smoothly even with the sideshows that happened. Well on TV every thing looked perfect but if you were watching it live, it was another matter, thanks to all that was going on behind the scenes. Very interesting things happened that you didn't get to see on TV.
Here are nine of those things you missed as you watched the event on TV at home.
1. A raunchy stand-up comedy set.
About 10 minutes before the show started, MTV sent out a standup comic who spent most of his time grotesquely critiquing people’s bodies like a seventh grader nobody will sit with at lunch. Most of the time they weren’t even jokes: “Cleavage – big fan.” “Nicki Minaj, she has a hell of a body.” “Hello, sir. You look great. If I was gay, I’d be all over you.” “Anybody have pubic hair?” Maybe if the VMAs had a white rose initiative, like the Grammys, this wouldn’t have been a problem. Unfortunately they don't.
