I didn’t even try to watch the VMAs. I don’t know have the performers and haven’t watched a music video since….well, since they were actually good and meant something. I only happen to flip on MTV when a Sam Smith featuring Mary J. Blige was on and I fell in love! He’s A-mazing!

But I did get a glimpse of some of the gorgeous dresses on the red carpet. I love the glided, mirrored, sequined theme that was going on this year!
