MTV VMAs 2010: The Highlights—Including Lady Gaga Announcing New Album 'Born This Way'

I literally just finished live-blogging the MTV Video Music Awards over on Idolator, and really three things stuck out tonight (aside from the fact that Robyn's performance with Deadmau5 was cut off after 30 seconds):

1. Florence + The Machine's performance of "Dog Days Are Over" (which won for Best Art Direction In A Video) was unmatched. Yes, last year at some point I said here on Chart Rigger something along the lines of "Hey, Florence—Tori Amos wants her pussy back." But that was then! I was young an naive!

2. Upon winning Video Of The Year for "Bad Romance"—just one of her eight wins in the 13 categories she was nominated for—Lady Gaga announced the name of her third album. It's called Born This Way. By the way, fucking Cher presented Gaga her award, while wearing her "If I Could Turn Back Time" thong!

3. Chelsea Handler = Best VMA host ever. After her opening monologue, she straddled Rick Ross atop a motorcart and rode off into the audience. Just one of her classy lines from the evening: “Get your tongues ready because I want one shoved where it’s not supposed to be.”

    My personal favorite Chelsea Handler moment was when she was talking to Jason Derulo and said his name in vocode. AMAZING.
