On today's River Mornings (8-26) With Melissa & Jack:
MTV Video Music Awards -
Miley Cyrus' foam finger, Lady Gaga's thong, Taylor Swift's mean streak and the look on Rihanna's face while Drake performed will surely be remembered, but these MTV Video Music Awards belonged to Justin Timberlake. Timberlake briefly reunited with `N Sync and won multiple moonman trophies including top honor video of the year for "Mirrors".
Overheard at the bar during Timberlake’s 15 minute set: ‘It was cool that MTV decided to give out awards during a Justin Timberlake concert’.
But seriously Miley, what the hell was that? Will Smith and his family's reaction shot to Miley's performance is PRICELESS.
American Music Fest –
Is August 30th
in VA Beach and features Third Eye Blind, Fuel, Barenaked Ladies, Carbon Leaf and Daughtry. Melissa and Jack are hooking you up with passes all week.
- A Texas Tech student is the first person in the United States to be allowed to wear a spaghetti strainer on his head in his photo I.D. The man said he is a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It was a religion made up by atheists to prove that government shouldn't side with a certain religion. Their followers are known as pastafarians. The man brought paperwork to show wearing a spaghetti strainer was part of his religion. He explained his situation to the person taking photos at the DMV and she told him if she wanted to wear it, that was fine. Some people are, umm, very strange.
