Darlings, the CIRCUS came to town last night! And all the little clowns and tumblers and sideshow freaks rolled out of their cars and onto the red carpet where they each demanded your love and attention, threatening at any time to expose their genitalia or fling their poop if you don’t give it to them.
i.e., The MTV Video Music Awards, of course.

Oh, so the temporary grill is going to be a thing? Again? Try something new, kids.
We don’t mind the dress, although she’s surprisingly covered up for the VMAs. We realize she’s been working a more demure Katy for a while now, but still. It seems a little off. The slit’s too high paired with such a high-collared, long-sleeved top half. And those sleeves make her arms look big.
Actually, we do mind the dress a little, mainly because it’s so all over the place thematically. She’s a … leopard? Being attacked by bejeweled moths and dragonflies? Is this some sort of “Battles of the Animal Kingdom” thing in dress form? Are we supposed to take sides? Because as much as we consider ourselves cat people, we’ll probably always come down on the side of bejeweled dragonflies.
Also, if you’re the type of girl whose toes splay all over the place in a pair of naked 4-inch heels, then you’re probably not the girl to be wearing naked 4-inch heels. No one wants to see you gripping for all you’re worth all night.
