Did you watch MTV's Video Music Awards last night? Apparently, they were broadcast live from this magical place called Broo-ka-line where the cold brew coffee flows like water and Beyoncé rides her bicycle through the tree-lined streets like a pleb! There were loads of famous people there — a boy band called *N SYNC reunited as a man band, Taylor Swift told former lover Harry Styles to "shut the fuck up" and Miley Cyrus ate out a teddy bear. Wa-wa-wa-wiiiiild!
Even if you didn't watch the VMAs because you don't have a tv or are an ADULT with more important priories than watching some farce of an award show (you were watching Breaking Bad), chances are you heard something about them. Unfortunately, a lot of the information out there is crap, so I did you the favor of tracking down the best VMA twitter commentary of the night and following morning. Read on, have a chuckle, and go forward with the confidence of knowing that the next time someone asks you what you thought of the 2013 VMAs (it will come up), you'll be able to rattle back the words of Twitter's best and brightest instead of ever having to form an opinion of your own.
Will now live-tweet the #VMA's. 1st step, google what channel MTV is on verizon fios nyc. 2nd step, report on Martha Quinn's hosting skills.— Rachel Dratch (@TheRealDratch) August 26, 2013
Often, when I look at what I once thought was cool, I think, "Will anything now extant ever be this embarrassing?" Not soon, though. #VMAS— Linda Holmes (@nprmonkeysee) August 26, 2013

Flipped to the #VMAs real quick to see that Miley Cyrus is still twerkin real hard to set us back 40 years.— Ramou Sarr (@Ramou) August 26, 2013
I'm so uncomfortable.— Brooklyn Decker (@BrooklynDecker) August 26, 2013
Officially diagnosed with PTSD after watching Miley's tongue wiggle waggle. #ThanksALot— Adira Amram (@adiraamram) August 26, 2013
Stop right there saying Miley stole twerking like Madonna stole voguing. Madge at least vogued liked she owned it. MC can't twerk or dance.— RICHELLE CAREY (@RichelleCarey) August 26, 2013
Most offensive thing about the Miley/Robin duet was how not one note was hit. If you can't foam finger bang & sing at the same time, don't.— Caissie St.Onge (@Caissie) August 26, 2013
Remind me to never let my kids into showbiz... Thanks— Nick Cannon (@NickCannon) August 26, 2013

Just woke up from a nightmare about beetlejuice and a child in latex underwear grinding on him.— alexa chung (@alexa_chung) August 26, 2013
Anyone who thinks Miley Cyrus needs intervention, retweet. That was not art. That was a cry for help-Shame on MTV and any who facilitate— morningmika (@morningmika) August 26, 2013
Not to come across as someone who cares about the VMAs or Miley Cyrus but Robin Thicke is 36 and should know better.— Steve Szlaga (@SteveSzlaga) August 26, 2013
One day @Rihanna is just gonna walk in on someone's performance, push them off the stage and start performing "We Found Love." I can't wait.— KZA (@KidFury) August 26, 2013
I get all confused inside when Katy Perry dresses like a lesbian. #VMA— Fortune Feimster (@fortunefunny) August 26, 2013
VMAs: Stop all this "what's up Brooklyn!!!" What's up is I'm 10 blocks away in my nightgown trying to keep my dog from drinking his own piss— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) August 26, 2013
Well I, for one, thought Miss Cyrus looked very pretty last night at her singing concert.— Julie Klausner (@julieklausner) August 26, 2013
Things I learned watching the #VMAs: Only men are allowed to perform with their pants on.— James Van Der Beek (@vanderjames) August 26, 2013
