Cardi B Pretty Much Saved The 2017 MTV VMAs After All Those Bad Katy Perry Jokes

Katy Perry hosted the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards last night in Las Vegas, and there were lots of ups and downs. Kendrick Lamar opened the show with a fiery medley of “DNA” and “Humble” and went home with the most awards of the night. He won a total of six moon statues, including Video of the Year for “Humble.”  A barefooted Paris Jackson spoke about Charlottesville, and sort of railed against President Trump, saying that people should “resist.” The mother of Heather Heyer, the young woman killed in Charlottesville, also made a powerful speech, and MTV invited transgender troops to attend the show.

But all that didn’t help the show’s host. Perry’s jokes were corny AF all night, and it appeared they didn’t land as well as she hoped.

From the opening monologue, Perry — or Perry’s writers — failed miserably at being funny. The Cut called Perry’s hosting duties “cringeworthy” and described her jokes as “dad-like.”

Thankfully, Cardi B was there to save the VMAs.

Cardi B was sorta kinda the true opener of the VMAs with her performance of “Bodak Yellow” during the pre-show.

Cardi B was also asked if she and rapper Offset were engaged. Her response was classic!

Even when singer Alessia Cara came out to sing “Scars to Your Beautiful,” people thought it was Cardi B!

Watch Cara’s entire performance here.

Then Cardi B came out to introduce Demi Lovato — but first, she gave a shout out to NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

“Colin Kaepernick, as long as you kneel with us, we gonna be standing for you baby.” Wow!

As she gave him props, she almost had a nip-slip!

Damn, that was a close call!

Thanks for representing, Cardi!

People Are Still Trying To Come Down After Fifth Harmony’s Shady Performance At The VMAs

MTV / The Late Late Show with James Corden / YouTube

For decades, the MTV VMAs have been known to provide iconic and jaw-dropping moments for fans. Last night was no different and the performers who shook the audience the most were the women of Fifth Harmony. The opening for their performance of “Angel/Down” is one of the most talked-about moments of the VMAs. Why? Well, a fifth member, which most people assume represents ex-member Camila Cabello, was snatched off the stage and it was startling. Here’s what went down.

They literally snatched a fifth person off the stage and snatched everyone’s wigs in the process.

Lauren Jauregui thanked her fans for allowing them to creatively share their story.

What story they were trying to tell remains a mystery since they haven’t released a statement about it.

Fans are speculating about the meaning behind the performance.

Some say that the fifth member being taken off the stage is representative of Camila Cabello jumping out of the group on her own accord. The remaining four members then jump at the same time to represent them jumping together to go forward as a group. Again, it’s all just fan speculation.

When Fifth Harmony showed up on the VMAs stage, there was a lot of chatter about who the fifth member was.

Was Camila Cabello back? Were they all putting aside their differences for an epic performance? Did they get a new member? The answer to all of those questions was no.

People on social media could not believe what they saw.

Camilizers quickly went to Cabello’s defense, calling Fifth Harmony “hypocrites” over the performance.

How are you going to say you have no ill will towards Cabello then you pull that stunt? The people demand answers.

Other people were just simply screaming in disbelief.

A lot of people “screamed” that night, honey.

Some thought it was all a bit much.

Fans who stan both Cabello and Fifth Harmony struggled with the performance.

Some times it best to just act like something didn’t happen so you can live a blissfully ignorant life.

Even “Game Of Thrones” fans switched over to catch the dramatic moment.

Damn. Getting “GoT” fans to take a pause from the show is something to admire, tbh.

Their performance completely overshadowed the highly-anticipated appearance of Taylor Swift’s new music video.

My apologies, but Taylor who?

Okay now. You’ve got our attention, Fifth Harmony. Can we get some clarity?

We’ve all invested time, energy, and social media interactions into this break-up. We need closure too.
