I remember looking forward to the VMAs when I was a teen. I loved seeing all the *Zany* antics of my favorite famous people, and seeing the *Edgy* clothing that they would wear.
Then for a month afterward, MTV would play the VMA show over and over and over again, and so I'd sit there for 3... 6... 9... 12 hours, soaking in the late 1990s fabulousness.
We always had the nakedness at the VMAs:
Lil Kim in 1999 in her little purple pasty, letting her gravity-defying titty shine like a celebrity of it's own.
Rose McGowan in 1998 taking the "Naked Dress" concept... literal AF.
I think I remember being actually shocked by this at the time.
But now nudity & exposed body parts are so ho-hum:
here's Miley at the 2015 VMAs tonight!
Also, remember when Miley looked like this?
I thought at the VMAs tonight we were going to see the parade of starlets and singers and Disney Darlings in tons of bandage dresses, but I figured out JUST TONIGHT that the CROP SET is the *new* BANDAGE DRESS!! It REALLY IS! SEE!
Amanda Steele wore this shining example:
The hands-down most impressive thing I saw at the VMAs tonight was Taylor Swift's flock of truly flawless women:
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Also, I'm glad that Tay decided to wear this bizarre harlequin trapeze rider outfit so as to not to upstage all the extreme beauty on display:
Gigi even split her entire dress up the front before showtime:
Amber Rose brought one #squad member, Blac Chyna:
Then poor Tori Kelly shows up alone:
"Why am I here by myself? Is this even allowed anymore? Who am I going to fight crimes with?"
Hopefully by the VMAs next year she can get a squad together, let's see, who's available...?
Or maybe Charo?
I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
