THE SHOWS 

I honestly just couldn't make a decision on what to watch last night, so I just took the easy route and went with the BBMA's. I'm sure most of you guys went Game of Thrones and/or Mad Men. Maybe some of you went Royals and Nurse Jackie or maybe High Profits on CNN. I'll get to all of them (well...not Mad Men) but last night, I was in the mood for Taylor Swift and all her besties. 
Billboard Music Awards
  • Opening the show, Taylor Swifts "Bad Blood" video starring all of her BFF's including Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Hailey Steinfeld, Gina Hadid, Mariska Hargitay, Cindy Crawford, Jessica Alba & Ellen Pompeo. Apparently the song and the video are about Katy Perry. Not sure what the war is all about, but I enjoyed the video. Cindy Crawford's pushing 50 and looks better than all the youngsters.
  • Damn I wish I could rock a jumpsuit like Taylor Swift. New goal for 2015…ROCK THE JUMPSUIT
  • VAN HALEN re-opened the show with "Panama." David Lee Roth is crazy,  Eddie's all botoxed but still super hot, Wolfie's gotta cut out some of the carbs. Maybe Jenny Craig will cut him a deal. I'm sure his Mom could hook him up with a freezer full of food and a sponsor to keep the Whopper with Cheese and fries from the tour bus. 
  • It seems J-Lo doesn't know the words to "Panama?" She's 45 years old…she SHOULD know that one even if it's not your genre.  I would think EVERYONE knows the words to "Panama" guess not.
  • David Lee apparently has a thing for Nicki Minaj. Can you imagine the hotel room after those two hook up? 
  • Chrissy Teigen & Ludacris (aka LUDA-not Chris…LUDA) kicked off their hosting duties with a shot. Guess Chrissy's not pregnant. Between the alcohol and that dress and an inability to supply oxygen to any fetus through those tiny mini nostrils, no way a kid would survive. 
  • Hot photos of Chrissy. Were they necessary? 
  • Furious 7 clip…was that necessary?
  • Best Top Duo/Group-One DIRECTION Harry forgot to spit out the gum, I'll forgive him. Class act to give a shout out to Zayn. 
  • Traci Ellis Ross's outfit was hideous. Just some advice. If you have flat saggy pancake boobs, don't wear anything to show them off.  
  • Laverne Cox looked gorgeous but the man arms are still a glimpse of the past. 
  • Top Billboard Album-1989/Taylor Swift. In addition to the pantsuit, the bracelet was way cool too. 
  • Fall Out Boy & Wiz Khalifa performed "Uma Thurman" accompanied by Pulp Fiction dancers. Do Fall Out Boy fans know who Uma is? Have they seen Pulp Fiction? Highly unlikely. 
  • Was it a spoiler that there are dueling Bachelorettes this season? 
  • Nick Jonas performed "Jealous" I love him but the jacket looked like that thing the Marathon runners put on at the finish line and the background was making me a bit nauseous. Was that the Duran Duran Rio chick flying by?  He needed to rip the jacket off and show us his abs. Didn't happen 
  • Chrissy's 2nd dress…black was awesome
  • Not exactly the most flattering dress for Meghan Trainor but her duet with John Legend was amazing. 
  • Every time I see Idina Menzel, I think of John Travolta. I wonder if she thanks him every day for screwing up her name. Best thing that ever happened to her. 
  • Mariah Carey was a HOT, HOT, HOT mess. She can't sing at all anymore. Did her vocal chords come out at the same time as her twins placenta? You could see her spanxx at certain angles, the girl can't move, she can't sing. It really saddens me! 
  • Why is Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years presenting Top Rap Performance? Someone explain that one to me. 
  • Best Rap Song "Fancy" Iggy's skirt looked like you could see her spanxx too! 
  • Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth and a crazy violinist performed.  Wiz was barefoot and all tatted up . What was with the weed bling on the mic?  You must REALLY love weed if you're willing to spend some dough on a customized weed microphone cover. 
  • Nice to see Celine Dion and that tiny circle of skin. I'd want to take a Sharpie and make a circle in it if she was near me.  
  • Top Male Artist - Sam Smith…Throat surgery agrees with him. Can't talk +can't swallow +can't eat,=weight loss! 
  • Coooooookie Lyons has some nice arms!  YAZ, Jusie Smollett & Estelle  killed it. YEAH EMPIRE. Loved Yaz's gold kicks with wings! 
  • The Samsung VIP great room? That's a bit of a stretch. A bigger stretch, that Chrissy Teigen cooks. An even BIGGER stretch, she actually eats! Did we see a nip there or not? I kept pausing and trying to check but didn't actually see any nip. 
  • Hozier does NOTHING for me
  • ONE D does everything for me but Harry' was still chewing gum 
  • Top Radio Song "All of Me" by John Legend…nice speech
  • BB King tribute…classy
  • I've been obsessed with "Girl Crush" I thought Faith Hill ruined it. Little Big Town should have performed it without her. 
  • Faith Hill looked good with short hair but I still think Tim McGraw cheats on her. 
  • Ellen Pompeo also rocked the pantsuit but I think she either had too many drinks or couldn't walk in her shoes or maybe she was trying to impress Chrissy with her catwalk
  • Top Female Artist-Taylor Swift. 
  • Taylor Swift Trivia. She has a cat named Meredith Gray 
  • Pete Wentz presented with the most unattractive Miss America I've ever seen
  • Top Touring Artist-One Direction…pour Liam…he got played off by the band 
  • I loved J Lo's dress. 
  • Chris Brown looked like the devil in that red suit and lip Synced. I hate that guy. 
  • Ed Sheerhan does nothing for me. I think if Taylor Swift didn't love him so much, nobody else would either. 
  • Fitty Cent and Rita Ora also do nothing for me.  
  • Top Hot 100 Song-"All About that Bass" The crowd went wild for Meghan Trainor and her unflattering dress 
  • Brittany and Iggy Azalea performed  "Just so Pretty" Brittany looked good. 
  • No idea who Prince Royce was
  • Billboard Chart Achievement- Taylor Swift. Bit of a technical problem with the Samsung phone, and Prince Royce during that one. It's SamSUNG not Samson. 
  • Fifth Harmony is the oddest looking girl band ever. None of them are attractive and they definitely look like they don't go together. 
  • Nicki Minaj didn't even bother to attempt to lip sync. Who would even notice? Between the butt cheeks and the bra made out of black solo cup material exposing her underboob, I'm sure nobody noticed. 
  • Kia's One to Watch...Tori Kelly. Scooter Braun has her too? Impressive.  
  • OMG The Breakfast Club and  "Don't You Forget About Me" was 30 YEARS AGO! The Simple Minds did a great job. All the young-uns, including Taylor Swift didn't know the words…Ed Sheerhan's talking business…they weren't even born! 
  • I love Kelly Clarkson but I think she really needs to find a stylist who can choose something that doesn't expose those calves. They're like tree trunks. She's still the best  talent to come out of American Idol, but she's got Miranda Lambert syndrome. 
  • Hailee Steinfelds dress was HIDEOUS
  • Top Country Artist-Florida Georgia Line. I got nothing. 
  • Ben. E. King tribute. "Stand by Me" by Imagine Dragons. Interesting choice and a great rendition. 
  • Can't wait for the Entourage Movie! Adrian Grenier should have been a bigger star by now, no? Maybe he needs to hire a new agent that's as good as his fake agent. 
  • Top Artist-Taylor Swift you can't hate her…you just  have to love her. 
  • Kylie & Kendall…didn't love their outfits…were they getting booed? 
  • Did anyone watch Kanye's rehearsal? Couldn't see a thing, couldn't hear a thing, WTF was going on in Vegas? He must have been cursing up a storm since 99% of his song was bleeped out. Nice to close the show with Kanye making me think something was wrong with my cable. He's a genius for that?
