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.

Someone Finally Made A Spanglish Version Of ‘No Scrubs’ So Latinas Can Now Tell Cornballs To Get Lost Bilingually

In 1999, nobody wanted to be called a “scrub.” Much less did you want to be with or around anyone who could be described as a scrub. It was always a slight diss, but when R&B royalty TLC dropped their six-time platinum album “FanMail” and the world heard the instant classic “No Scrubs,” the word “scrub” went from diss to dagger. It was used to cut down any would be cat-caller, pretend-baller, and cornball trying to get the attention of the ladies by pretending to be someone they weren’t. It’s a diss that’s been in the subconscious of all who grew up on it. Fast forward almost two decades later, and “No Scrubs” is about to make a comeback.

Cuban born singer Wendy Sarmiento, who you may know from Telemundo’s “La Voz Kids,” has just dropped this re-imagining of the classic R&B song “No Scrubs” by TLC.

Sarmiento has made it no secret that it’s a nod to TLC’s hit, even keeping a large part of the chorus that made the original so famous. Switching between English and Spanish, 16-year-old Sarmiento has a voice that is beyond her years. It has grown leaps and bounds vocally since her her first audition on “La Voz Kids.”

The song is by production duo Dropout, with Sarmiento providing all vocals on the track.

Writing on the song was provided by Latin Grammy nominee Ale Alberti.

Back when she performed “Ven Conmigo” on “La Voz Kids,” Sarmiento was just 11.  She got a huge reaction from the crowd for repping both Cuba and Miami.

Although only one of the judges chose her, they were all impressed by her poise and composure. And once back stage, she talked about being proud of herself for finishing strong and working through her nerves, even though she says her mind went blank on stage.

As you’ll recall, “No Scrubs” was THE song of 1999 and lived on all throughout the early 2000’s, before Sarmiento was even born.

No worries, though, as Dropout and Sarmiento have put together a song that not only sounds good, but pays tribute to the original by leaving the chorus intact.

Many will recall the rebuttal track by Yonkers, NY rappers “Sporty Thieves,” who hit back at the song with “Pigeons,” a satirical take on “No Scrubs.”

While achieving only a sliver of the airplay and success of “No Scrubs,” Sporty Thieves aligned themselves with the classic and kids on school courtyard’s all over the country teased back and forth “Scrub!” and “Pigeon!” It was a simpler time.

Looks like we get to keep calling cornballs “Scrubs” for the foreseeable future, but now in English and Spanish. ?
