No one can stop talking about the 2013 MTV VMA’s, which aired last night. It seems to be the only thing happening on social media and any website ever… and I think we wasted a good hour here at Gurl discussing how we felt about what went on. But can you really blame everyone? Last night’s VMA’s gave us so much to think about, from Lady Gaga’s butt-baring performance to Miley Cyrus’ hot mess of a performance to NSYNC’s 12-second reunion (and so much more).
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the VMA’s (and making fun of everything happening via Twitter), but my absolute favorite part of the show had to be the celebrity reactions to the insane things their fellow celebrities were doing on stage. Rihanna would have obviously liked to be anywhere else – girl wore jeans – and her bored out of her mind facial expressions throughout the show were priceless. MTV cameras were obsessed with Taylor Swift and followed her every (dancing) move. Drake looked depressed the whole night and… oh, you know what? I’ll just show you in GIFs.
These are the 12 best celebrity reactions to some of the weird things that went on last night. These facial expressions might be better than the actual show.
Everyone thought this image of Will Smith’s shocked family was their reaction to Miley Cyrus’ performance, but it actually looks like it was their reaction to Lady Gaga’s. Either way – perfect.
Taylor Swift maybe, possibly, said “STFU” to Selena Gomez while One Direction were on stage presenting an award… and the entire Internet flipped out.
Drake looked like this during Miley’s performance and it was basically amazing.
And Rihanna (and One Direction) looked like this, summed up what we all were feeling and gave me my favorite celebrity GIF of all time.
Taylor Swift literally could not believe what she was seeing while Miley stripped to nothing.
Then her and Selena both lost it completely.
Rihanna looked bored while dancing during Drake’s performance… but notice that side eye?!
Jaden Smith was adorably impressed with Drake after his performance and it was the cutest Vine you’ll watch today.
Taylor did what every single other girl watching did when NSYNC appeared on stage.
Harry Styles tried to play it cool when the MTV cameras panned to his reaction shot while Taylor accepted her award. Look at that smirk!
Everyone was amazed at how awesome Lady Gaga’s butt looked (check Taylor’s face back there).
I don’t know when this happened, but it’s just more evidence of Rihanna being bored and I love it.
Lady Gaga got super pissed when One Direction got booed when receiving their award – not cool, audience! – and actually left the show because of it.
She even said something to them about it (her speech starts around the 25 second mark) and it was awesome:
