Sure was a good thing that I spent the afternoon reading and napping, cause I am not sure I’ve ever been so bored by an awards show. The Billboard Music Awards was so slow moving I was left wondering if everyone was handed a Xanax on their way in to their seats. And that’s not really where my questions end. Are they actually giving out awards at this thing and is it co-sponsored by Zuhair Murad? PSY was nominated for multiple awards in the rap category? Tupac just rolled over in his grave. Was lip syncing a requirement? Are some of these stars gunning for a spot on next season of Dancing with the Stars? Did everyone’s invitation get lost in the mail? (Mine did). Where’s Rihanna when you need her?
Drop crotch leather pants, unicorn t-shirts, body slamming– and no, I’m not describing my weekend. Ke$sha was looking, well, not like Ke$ha in an ensemble that leads me to believe she just came straight from the pool at Wet Republic. I understand this isn’t the Oscars, let alone the Met gala, but it was such slim pickings on the “blue carpet” that I nearly threw in the towel and smashed my guitar halfway through watching. But alas, no one likes a quitter, so here are my picks for best, worst, and WTF?! of the night.

Maybe I need to take up an instrument.
