On second thoughts, it seemed like she may made it up as she went along, as the pop icon's tribute to Franklin during the ceremony at Radio City Music Hall last night didn't go down too well at all.
We all knew that the MTV VMAs' Aretha Franklin tribute would be controversial (MTV isn't exactly the best at executing things tactfully), but no one expected it to be so dang freaky. "And for many, I'm probably seen as that individual". "Not enough", she said.
And onstage at the end of the night, Camila was handed the Moon Person statuette by none other than Madonna - who she chose to dedicate her win to.
"I'm going to make a headline tonight and I have to virtue signal to all the people in the Hollywood community and NY community that I'm anti-Trump", Shapiro said.
Of course, the VMAs have always been about "moments" as much as awards themselves, and, as was the case a year ago, these didn't offer a flashpoint like Miley Cyrus twerking or Kanye West barging into a Taylor Swift speech with the immortal words, "I'ma let you finish". However, Madonna explained that she quickly got exhausted of being a "puppet", so she traveled back to the U.S.to begin her real career. But then again, it's Madonna, so you never know.
First, Madonna came on stage in that outfit and even the most anti-SJW people on Earth were able to say "that doesn't look right". Following Franklin's death, MTV asked Madonna to add a tribute to Franklin in her introduction. "The AUDACITY", another fan noted.
Last night's VMAs was full of banging performances by all of the public's favorites.
It was the night's most shocking moment, and MTV seemed to send a message: You're punished for not showing up and rewarded for attending. "Very disappointing", one user wrote.
A few of the star's die-hard fans managed to shine a ray of light on the situation, though, including one who called the tribute a "Great speech! I panicked. I had overlooked this important part of the audition process", she continued. "All the love... it's genuine, it's attractive, and that's something that God give me that you can't buy".
