Holy eighties flashbacks, Batman!!!!! The finale …

August 29th, 2002 · No Comments

Holy eighties flashbacks, Batman!!!!! The finale act of the MTV VMAs tonight is none other than Guns N’ Roses, although it looks like the only member that actually still there is Axl Rose. It would’ve been cooler if Slash was also in the lineup, but oh well. I guess Axl just needs the crack money.

The VMAs were pretty dull tonight, although Jimmy Fallon’s opening sequence was pretty funny. I almost cracked a rib when he was impersonating Avril Levigne and Enrique Iglesias. Bruce Springsteen, even though I’m not really a fan, really knows how to rock. It was interesting to see Steven Van Zandt playing the guitar. I only became familiar with him because he was playing Sylvio in The Sopranos, but I just recently found out that he was actually also a member of Bruce’s E Street Band. Suprising to see that he’s also a very decent guitar player.

Another highlight was seeing Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth onstage together…. it was kinda like them saying an FU to Eddie Van Halen. “Hey Eddie, we’re here, so where the hell are you now????” Also, Kylie Minogue was smoking hot, hot, hot! If there was a disappointment tonight, it’s that they picked Kylie to present instead of perform.

One of the highlights of these awards shows though have to be the clothes, and this year was no exception. Among the most “what the hell was that?” outfits was Britney Spears in bondage leather. The only thing missing was the cracking whip. Christina Aguilera was in her usual slutty look. Best-dressed? My hands-down opinion would be Kylie!!!!!!

All in all, it was a nice and entertaining show…. much, much better than that tasteless show on the year that the Wayans brothers hosted.
