VMAS 2013: *NSYNC Reunites and Miley Twerks??

Image

Last night MTV had Brooklyn Barclays Center on fire as your favorite celebrities like Kanye West and Katy Perry hit the stage. But… the  2013 VMAs were stolen by former boy band sensations *NSYNC!  After 11 years the group reunited on the stage during Justin Timberlake‘s Vanguard Performance.  The boy band dismembered in 2001 and Justin went solo in 2002 and premiered at the 2002 VMAS!  For you music lovers… Justin sampled some of Hov’s hits during his medley performance. JT said ” He still runs this BITCH!”. Named the President of Pop… He tears the house down. Check out the awesome set click below if you didn’t have a chance to catch it.

*NSYNC Reunion

Others to hit the stage included Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz during a collabo performance with Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus. Th performance was a little much….. ok it was A LOT. Miley Cyrus caught herself turning up and out on the stage and blurred some lines with Robin Thicke as she sported a furry animal one piece and he rocked Beetlejuice’s suit… Click below to see the ratchness.

Yeah… that pretty much wraps it up. Rihanna and Drake‘s faces were not amused. Haha. Miley needs a timeout! The level of thirst to twerk is ridiculous. There was a lot of politically incorrect things going on last night… The VMAs were overall a job well done and the Barclays was a great choice. Glad that NYC has the show back in town. 2 thumbs up!!!

Squeeze Alert: Kendrick Lamar Goes In On Big Sean’s “Control” Track

It may be Big Sean‘s song but…Kendrick Lamar‘s verse stole the limelight. Last night Kendrick’s lyrics took over social networks causing a frenzy! Claiming to be the King of Both Coasts, he called out some of his fellow Rap colleagues and Miley Cyrus.

I heard barber shops debate the greats all the time

Who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, andre 3000, the rest of yall
New niggas just new niggas, dont get involved
And i ain’t rockin no more designer shit
White T’s and nike cortes, this is red corvettes annonymous
Im usually homeboys with the same niggas im rhymin wit
But this is hip hop and them niggas should know what time it is 

And that goes for Jermaine Cole, big krit, wale,
Pusha T, meek mill, asap rocky, drake,
Big sean, jay electron, tyler, mac miller,
I got love for u all but im tryna murder you niggas
Tryna make sure ur core fans never heard of you niggas
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from u niggas

Hip Hop Junkies, what do we think about these bars? We love us some Kendrick SOOOOOO. We see this as good sports.Athletes compete everyday and are friends outside of that. Great Hip-Hop can be the same way. Bars versus bars. Simple as that. No real beef. It’s good to see someone stir up the music world like this. Makes things interesting!

And The Winner Is…

I think that it’s safe to say that Miguel and Kendrick Lamar are killing the game right now. Nicki Minaj also picked up the Best Female Hip Hop Artist for the fourth year in a row and Chris Brown also won the Fandemonium Award for the fourth time as well.  Can’t wait to see who’s up next. Ladies step ya bars up!
