Deeply Disturbed Miley Cyrus' VMA Performance Was "Disgusting and Embarrassing," So Says Uptight MSNBC News Lady

Last night brought us the MTV VMA awards, and we’ll discuss it … oh … a few times in this column. First though, here’s a dead-on op-ed on why the Video Music Awards is actually a pretty perfect awards show. (Grantland)

Lamar Odom, husband to Khloe Kardashian and basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers, is allegedly addicted to crack cocaine. This could just be a smear attempt from the Kardashian Klan, which is not pleased with his (also alleged) marital infidelities, but if true, this crack news does not bode well for a professional athlete. (TMZ)

Lady Gaga’s opening turn onstage at the VMAs was actually pretty tame and involved a ton of mid-song costume changes that ended with a shell-bikini, which arrived complete with a butt-flashing thong. (Us Weekly)

Tom Cruise was conspicuously missing from this photo of Scientology’s 44th anniversary gala at the Celebrity Centre. Don’t worry, he was probably just in an auditing session somewhere or holding auditions for his next wife. Tom can’t quit the cult, or they’d cut off his lift supply. DListed)

plvmamiley1.jpgEveryone is talking about Miley Cyrus’ vinyl wedgie at the VMAs last night. Is she truly “disturbed,” though? Or is she just absolutely desperate for attention and hoping that people will stand up for her so as not to look like slut shamers? (WG)

Katy Perry tried to “Roar” on the VMA red carpet last night with a rainbow grill. Oh, girl. (Celebitchy)

Well, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 finally has a title, which means (I guess) that Johnny Depp is ready to get back to movies that actually spin a profit. (Film Drunk)

The trailer for The Book Thief decided that Death wasn’t such an adaptable narrator after all. Too bad. (The Mary Sue)

Good news for Hulk fans. Your green guy will smash in the near future, and Mark Ruffalo will probably still be playing Bruce Banner. (Slashfilm)

If you liked The World’s End, then chances are the you’ll probably enjoy watching these 10 movies too. (Film School Rejects)

Elmore Leonard’s son plans to complete his father’s final book, which includes a prominent appearance from Raylan Givens. This sounds sketchy as hell. As much as I’d love to see another Raylan book, I think Sonny should leave this one alone, don’t you? (Vulture)

Dustin points out Aaron Sorkin’s main strength in writing last night’s episode of “The Newsroom.” That is, growing up in a family full of lawyers helps one properly line up the evidence. (WG)

Likewise, if you’re still watching “Dexter” then STOP IT. You’re wasting your time. This recap is all you need to validate your disappointment in the Brain Surgeon Killer reveal. (Uproxx)

Who says piracy doesn’t hurt anyone? This new Victorian-dueling game sold 144 copies but was ripped off 50,000 times. Disgusting. (Kotaku)

I don’t really know who Erin Wasson is, but her ass went to the VMAs last night. (Go Fug Yourself)

It’s just about lunch time, so perhaps you’d be interested in learning about where the Thousand Island salad dressing got its name. Let’s just go to lunch, y’all. (Mental Floss)
