Not so fancy, Iggy Azalea during the MTV Video Music Award pre-show on Friday fell off stage while performing, but she was able to get back on stage and unhurt. The VMAs kicked off Sunday night with Ariana Grande, Jessie Jay and Nicki Minaj opening the show. Toward the end of her song, Nicki Minaj had a wardrobe mishap. It seemed as though her zipper in the front of her dress popped open, but she handled the situation with grace and finished the song.
The Kardashians are under fire because during the moment of silence for Michael Brown they were caught on their phones. Maybe they were Googling “Michael Brown?”
Miley Cyrus won video of the year for “Wrecking Ball,” but instead of giving a speech, Miley had Jesse Helt, a homeless teen, accept her award on her behalf to create an awareness for teen homelessness. The show ended with Beyonce performing a medley of her songs. By the end, the rumors of her divorce from Jay-Z were put to rest, with him and Blue Ivy coming on stage giving her a big kiss. What a sweet way to end the night.
So Sunday was about music, but Monday night was about Television. The 66th Primetime Emmys kind of snuck up on us. With “Breaking Bad” ending this past year, the show went out with a bang, walking away with 16 wins. “True Detective” and “Orange is the New Black” did not win as many awards as most of us would have hoped. The real winners were the cast and writers for “Sherlock.” The BCC/PBS masterpiece show won six awards, including best lead actor in a mini-series, best supporting actor in a mini-series, and best writing for a mini-series. Benedict Cumberbatch has only won two other awards, so his fans everywhere are happy for him.
Most of us are excited for football to start this weekend, but for some of us it has already started. Madden NFL 15 was released Tuesday, and let’s just say that it is a clean start from Madden 25. The graphics are seamless and beautiful. The game now features more choices when making a play. Want to tackle someone? You now get to choose to tackle high or low. IGN gave Madden NFL 15 an 8.7 out of 10. With its next-gen upgraded looks, it is worth the buy.
One last thing, did you know Hello Kitty is not a cat? That’s right, the character we all grew up with and loved is actually a little girl. Sanrio, the creating company of Hello Kitty, issued a statement when Christine Yano, curator at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, described Hello Kitty as a cat at an exhibit. Hello Kitty’s real name is Kitty White, and she is from England. Surprise! What a shocker to end the week.
