Aside from a certain rapper’s outburst, last night’s Video Music Awards were, impressively, quite good. Sure, the barrier wasn’t too high; MTV’s annual tween music fest is usually not worth clogging up your TiVo with. But then there was Pink flying through the sky. Lady Gaga hiding her penis. Beyonce pop-locking her wrist. Janet Jackson dancing with her brother (scroll above clip to 3:35). Oh, and Madonna talking about herself.
