Now this is what the VMAs are really about: fashion trainwrecks trainwrecking around trying to out trainwreck each other. And while it absolutely pains us to include some of our favorites on this list – Rihanna, Robyn, former MTV VJ Kennedy (er, JK) – nothing compares to the suffering they caused our eyes tonight with their wardrobe WTFs.
Without further ado, here are the looks we hated (on stars we – sob – love). Are we being too evil with our fashion eye? Talk back to us in the comments. And yes, we’ll fully admit to being the worst-dressed nobody of the night – yoga pants, a giant purple t-shirt and our one accessory – a medium cup of Haagen Daz. Luckily our cat took paparazzi shots, so we’ll be happy to share. [Photo: Getty Images]
When Barack Obama promised change, we didn’t realize that bringing great entertainment to political events was part of the deal. But … wow! The “We Are One” concert on Sunday kicked off with Bruce Springsteen performing “The Rising” with a full gospel choir and ended with Beyonce belting out “America the Beautiful.” Sandwiched in between were performers like Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Usher, Shakira, John Mellencamp and U2 — not to mention actors/speakers like Denzel Washington, Forest Whitaker, Marisa Tomei, Jack Black, Steve Carell, Rosario Dawson, Jamie Foxx and Tom Hanks. Double wow!
And the parties spreading out in Washington D.C. continue — from the Latino inaugural gala (Marc Anthony performed, J.Lo in tow) to the “Declare Yourself” inaugural kick-off event (yes, Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson are still an item.) to Young Jeezy‘s “Presidential Status Inauguration Ball,” where a shirtless T.I. pumped up the crowd. Check out the pics below to see some of the action, and keep up with today’s events at VH1′s Live Inauguration Blog.
