Top fashion predictions for the MTV VMAs 2022

Well, who will wear what on the red carpet? I’ve seen a lot of expectations for “naked” dresses because Megan Fox wore one last year…Personally, I’m always excited to see what Lizzo has envisioned, as well as Manskin’s ensemble (even if it’s in my bad books for pulling out of a UK festival to attend), Rosalia, Bad Bunny (Incredible Style), Billie Eilish. Nicki Minaj will probably wear at least three outrageous outfits.

The leaders of Reading and Leeds may have been upset when they learned that Italian rock band Manskin and American rapper Jack Harlow were pulling out of festivals at the last minute.

Both acts were enticed by the promise of some prime-time television footage at the 2022 MTV VMAs, with Harlow performing and co-hosting fellow rappers Nicki Minaj and LL Cool J.

“We are saddened to hear that Jack Harlow and Måneskin have decided to perform at the Awards Gala on the same weekend that they were confirmed to play Reading and Leeds,” festival organizers wrote in a statement posted to their Instagram Stories.

“We are working on some exciting alternatives to join Arctic Monkeys, Dave, Bring Me The Horizon, 1975, Halsey, Megan Thee Stallion, D-Block Europe, PinkPantheress, Joy Crookes, Fontaines DC, Bastille, Willow, Wolf Alice, Glass Animals and Minds. Hybrid and many others at Reading and Leeds Festivals this August Bank Holiday Weekend, watch this space!”

Madonna proves that the MTV VMAs have never lacked controversy

Earlier this month, Madonna pondered how a wardrobe malfunction early in her career – at the first MTV Awards in 1984 – led her manager to say “her career is over.”

The 63-year-old music icon said the moment happened when she sang her single “Like A Virgin”.

I remember Madonna when she recently appeared in The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

“And I was trying to do this smooth movement like diving for a shoe and making it look like it was a choreography and my clothes flipped over, and my butt was showing. Can you imagine?

“Those were the days when you didn’t have to show your ass to get a job,” she joked. “Now it’s the opposite.”
