Last night we watched part of the MTV Video Music Awards. I didn't expect to enjoy it, and I wasn't disappointed.
Today, however, I found out that there was something to enjoy--I just didn't notice it when it happened.
In presenting Michael Jackson with a cake and trophy for his 44th birthday, Britney Spears glowingly referred to Jackson as the "artist of the millenium". The birthday boy thought he was getting an award by that name, and proceeded to give a heartfelt thank-you speech. I was too busy watching his nose ("He's more machine now, than man. Twisted and evil."), and didn't realize what was happening at the time. Alas.
