VMAs: "When's Lil' Wayne Coming Back On?"

So the VMAs was mundane and a harsh reminder that the talentless rule popular music. The only highlights of the evening were when Lil' Wayne was on stage. Joined by Leona Lewis, T-Pain, and a full orchestra, Lil 'Wayne gave a mini showcase of some of his hits since Tha Carter III dropped. He also performed with Kid Rock but I found myself waiting once again for Lil' Wayne, who remains the only beacon of hope for mainstream hip-hop. Check out his performance below:

When Lil'Wayne wasn't on screen, I was witness to a myriad of promise ring-clad, Disney "virgins" unable to take a joke from the ever witty and sharp-tongued Russell Brand who was not received well by many of the pop stars in attendance, especially by the Jonas Brothers and Jordin Sparks. After Russell made a couple of quips at the Jonas Brothers for their promise rings to God, the American Idol star had this to say before giving out a moon man:
"It's not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody, guy or girl, wants to be a slut." ummm...okay?

After that, Russell apologized the only way Russell could. Saying he doesn't want to piss off teenage fans with comments on promise rings, but that doesn't mean he wants to "piss on" them either, alluding to the infamous R.Kelly incident.

Blah, Blah, Brit-Brit won three awards which seemed to be out of sheer pity from the VMA comittee.

The show then closed with Kanye revealing his new song "Love Lockdown" which is beautifully produced but as usual, Kanye's vocals (which was sung, not rapped) lacked. As I feel about many Kanye West's songs, I kind of wished he layed down the track and had someone with a stronger voice sing. Anyway, check it:
