*At the MTV Video Music Awards, Sunday night in Los Angeles, Lady Gaga took home the most moonmen trophies, including best video of the year.
The singer, known for her outrageous costumes and attitude, received the biggest prize of the night in an outfit that’ll have PETA howling very shortly: a dress and chapeau that appeared to be made of cuts of meat.
And just who presented Gaga her trophy? None other than another larger than life icon, Cher.
*Meanwhile, what about the song that Taylor Swift was to sing to supposedly get back at Kanye West for last year’s trophy-snatching incident?
Well, first of all, it seems she’s ready to forgive him for last year’s indiscretion. It went down like this. Swift debuted a brand-new song that looked back — charitably — at the rapper’s infamous ambush of her.
Before she began, an onstage TV quickly played the moment in which Kanye stormed the stage, protesting her win of that year’s Best Female Video.
“Lost your balance on the tight rope/it’s never too late to get it back,” she sang.
“Today is never too late to be brand new,” she added, suggesting West clean his act up.
In another verse, Swift sings about a man who’s “32 and still growing up now…who you are is not what you say.”
“Every one of us has messed up too,” Swift’s song continued. “I hope you remember today’s never too late…to be friends with you….You’re still an innocent.”
Awww, she took the high road. Good for her. We wonder what knucklehead’s response will be.
