Hah. He probably heard what we — and countless other people — were saying about him yesterday. Chris Brown, you’re learning! He totally got lucky at the VMA’s when a fan returned his lost $22,000 Rolex to Chris‘ bodyguard. That thing was dripping in diamonds, y’all, and he almost never saw it again because of mistakenly throwing it into the crowd after it came loose. The point is, the fan’s honesty was something so heartening that we felt Chris should’ve gone and met her (it’s a her, we found out today) to thank her for taking care of it, instead of asking his rep to churn out a statement.
We’re happy that he wants to do the right thing now! ChrisÃ‚Â wants to thank the fan personally now and — this is so cool — give her tickets and backstage passes for his new tour! That’s awesome! The problem is that his bodyguard didn’t get the name of the fan and they’re all hoping she contacts them. So if you’re reading this, super fan, get in touch asap! One good deed really deserves another, eh?
This is a bit of lucky karma for Chris Brown. The singer had a bit of a heart attack at the recent VMA’s when he lost hisÃ‚Â $22,000 diamond encrusted Rolex. Chris accidentally tossed it into the crowd. How you “accidentally” toss your $22 K watch is beyond us, but the story is that it came loose while he was performing and he tried to toss it aside safely, but missed his markÃ‚Â drastically. But, regardless of his poor aim,Ã‚Â the powers that be felt it was fit to reunite him with the watch.
Post Chris’ performance, his bodyguard went into the audience. Hoping against hope that someone would be honest enough to hand it over. And guess what, they did. A fan — and good SamaritanÃ‚Â — gave it over immediately. There’s still light in the world, people! We wish that Chris would’ve come over to say thanks personally, but his rep said, “Although Chris did not get to meet the fan, he is very appreciative of the fan’s actions.” Still, an autograph and picture would’ve been nice? We’re not saying that the fan did it for those reasons at all. We’re saying Chris should’ve mosied over to say hi in return for that $22,000 watch! It’s the least he could have done!
The MTV Video Music Awards just ended, but our Twitter feed is still overflowing with commentary and our Tumblr dashboard is packed with GIFs. The night certainly didn’t disappoint, what with Dude Gaga (aka Jo Calderone) hitting on everyone in between smokes and Beyonce and Jay-Z glowing with excitement over their musical messiah. But where do they fall on our Top 10 VMAs Moments We’ll Be Talking About Tomorrow? Read our list below and stack our favorite moments against yours!
10. Lil Wayne leaping in his seat to cheer on Nicki Minaj. Nothing will stop this short guy from supporting his gal pal.
9. Adele‘s much-deserved standing ovation for her amazing performance of “Someone Like You, ” AKA “The Entire World’s Break Up Song.” We wept openly in the fetal position during the entire thing. We’re totally fine now though! *sniff*
8. Cloris Leachman and the Jersey Shore girls star in: Trainwreck City! They’re old, they’re young, they’re DTF up their hosting bit on live TV!
Britney Spears on a Best Dressed List? Who would have thought it possible?! While her shoes weren’t our favorite (accentuate your legs, girl! Skip the bondage braces next time) we’re feeling her LBD and damn, her face! Her hair! She’s glowing — and there’s no baby belly in sight. Also on fire tonight, the very pregnant Beyonce, who stole the show with her glow, her grin and her gorgeous red gown. We’ve got our other faves in the gallery below, including Bey’s Destiny’s Child bestie Kelly Rowland, the classically styled Adele and Taylor Lautner, whose stylist has the casual cool thing down to a science. Well played, kids.
Look, we know it’s the VMAs and that’s celebrity code for ‘dress like a million dollar acid trip.’ But even the usual WTFers outdid themselves this time, adding accessories that only accentuated the absurdity of their already ridiculous outfits. Katy Perry completed her candy geisha look with an umbrella. Nicki Minaj wore a face mask AND an ice cream cone necklace AND lugged around a bizarre stuffed animal purse. Jersey Shore Deena matched her eyes with her dress. And then there was Justin Bieber, who carried around a tiny snake in his hand the whole night. And no, that’s not a euphemism for anything, you pervs. They guy accessorized with a real live snake. We’re sure PETA’s gonna have a little something to say about that tomorrow!
From Deena’s colored contacts to Jessie J‘s sparkle crutches, there’s something for everyone to gag at in our Worst Dressed gallery below! Better luck next year, guys.
Beyonce is pregnant! Beyonce is pregnant! Beyonce and Jay-Z are having a BABY! Ohmygod you guys, this is the best news of the year/decade/century/of all time. The singer made the announcement on the black carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards tonight, telling paparazzi and MTV that she is indeed, carrying Hov’s baby. She proudly cupped her blossoming baby belly as she posed in a stunning red gown. We can’t wait to gush about this pregnancy for the next few months.
Offer up your congrats to Beyonce and Jay-Z in the comments below!
