The VMAs will always offer a mix of bad performances, provocative performances, and amazing performances. Hands down, Katy Perry won that last one. From the boxing ring and boxer dancers to the incredibly inspiring song to the gorgeous shots under the Brooklyn Bridge, the performance was my favorite of the night by FAR. And Katy’s just so cute, I love her!
All night people kept saying “Roar” is her biggest hit yet, which I thought was weird because a) it just came out and b) we’re talking about someone who’s had humongous hits like “Firework” and “Teenage Dream” (although I’m partial to “Last Friday Night”). But apparently “Roar” sold over 509,000 digital copies in its first week alone, and is still going strong – roaring along, one might say…
I don’t have a shred of evidence that Katy drinks wine, but that won’t stop me from giving her a grape. And after last night’s performance, I’d have to give her a wine that packs a punch – Amarone!

But then Katy made us smile and give us hope for humanity again and just be like:
