Thanks to Joyce for posting this, and saving me from all the hassle finding it in the best format. I’m so lazy like that (cue: The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars) LOL!!!!

Government Hooker can be her next single.

By all means, MTV is obviously going less Gaga. It’s just weird not having her, ’cause she might bag it all (BEST DIRECTION SHOULD GO TO BORN THIS WAY!) Give chance to others, little monsters. She’s opening for VMAs though. Oh I’m so looking forward to this.

You and I is not my favorite Gaga song, but the video’s cool! Check it out here.

Katy Perry should win Best Pop Video for Last Friday Night (TGIF) just because the idea is so good. Most especially because Darren Criss did a cameo for that video. /bias. HAHA! She should win Best Video for Firework because nobody can actually beat fireworks in your boobs while hitting notes of skyscraper proportions.

And for the record, The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars should win just for telling the story of my life. LOLJK! I think Rolling in the Deep by Adele has so many mentions – I think it will win majority of the awards just like Twilight having the majority from the Movie Awards.

The MTV VMAs 2011 airs 29th of August SGT. I miss watching MTV Awards with my Singaporean friends!
