I am not sure if I am the only person who is thinking this, so I am asking you guys and gals if you get the same type of impression from the way the
entertainers are conducting themselves at this years MTV Video Music Awards - or the MVMA's (Manchurian Video Music Awards).
I haven't watched the VMA's in years, and happened to see it on live tonight, so I tuned in to see how much it has changed.
I know that there are generally cookie things and actions that take place there, but what I have noticed seems to go over the top with strange
personality quirks so far.
I noticed the rapper 'Lil Wayne' win an award with another entertainer named Drake. The two, along with several other members of their posse, took the
stage. From the moment the cameras panned to them in the audience until their departure from the stage, there seemed to be something off about the way
they were acting.
At first I thought it might just be them trying to act cool and seem like they just don't give a 'crap'. Then I noticed an artist named Katy Perry
sitting in the audience, next to another performer named Rihanna. The scene was captured during a performance by a boy band called 'One Direction'.
As the music played, the cameras switched to a feed of Perry and Rihanna, where Perry was singing along. In the clip you can see Perry lean over,
close her eyes, and sing into Rihanna's ear, looked intimate, though she didn't finish the lyrical sentence. She mimed the words, 'I want that' - the
full & accurate lyric is, 'I need that 1 thing'
Ok, so I thought it seemed strange and intimate the way she looked while lip-synching into Rihanna's ear. No big deal though, she did have a song
titled, 'I Kissed A Girl' and Rihanna has some pretty raunchy sexual lyrics, so maybe they are intimate.
I continued watching up until a few minutes ago when another award was given to an artist called, 'Nikki Minaj'. She was one of the 'posse' that
accompanied Drake and 'Lil Wayne' to the stage for a previous award, where she also seemed a bit strange.
When her victory was announced she seemed incredibly shocked. Not a patronizing shock, like someone who has success on her level might do... similar
to someone knowing about their suprise birthday party, but they still act shocked to make everyone think it worked.
I wish I had a clip to show you this particular instance, because I am having trouble grabbing the words for an accurate description and if you could
see it, you will know what I am talking about.
As Minaj approaches the podium to accept the award, she is flanked by 2 men at either side (body guards or more posse members maybe?) It seems almost
as if they are holding her arms, to keep her from falling over. Maybe they all went and got messed up beforehand or maybe their is something else
I don't know what could be going on that would include many of the artists. Maybe a mass hypnotic trance, haha?
As I watch the expressions on many of their faces and the actions they make, I can't help but be reminded of the Bill Clinton video - the one where
make-up is being applied before and interview and he is completely unemotional, literally looks like a trance or Zombie...
Anyway, the awards are on MTV right now and I would like to ask those of you who can watch it to check it out and let me know if you have noticed
anything that seems strange with the artists in general.
Would be nice to hear what you may (or may not) notice about their presence and mannerism through the awards show.
