Here's 'N Sync's Reunion Performance at the MTV VMA's
If you, like me, are so out-of-touch with the contemporary music industry that you couldn’t even appreciate the MTV Music Awards ironically (or, maybe you were watching “Dexter,” you poor goddamn soul. I feel your pain), then maybe you don’t know what happened last night. Most of my knowledge comes from Courtney’s splendid live blog, which I read without visual accompaniment (I think it’s better that way). From what I can tell from the liveblog, the most compelling moments in the ceremony (i.e., where the most ALL CAPS were utilized) involved the stunning violet-smelling dazzle-monster Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus’s Extreme Makeover: Image Edition performance, and the reunion of NSYNC.
This is the relevant GIF from the Miley Cyrus performance.
This also happened.
And this is N Sync’s reunion. I’ve included relevant portions from Courtney’s live-blog so that you can read along just like YOU WERE THERE. If you decide to catch re-airs, I also encourage you to follow along in its entirety with Courtney’s liveblog, and pretend you’re watching it with everyone else.
09:08 - “It feels like somethin’s heatin’ up; can I leave with you?” - Joey Fatone because his car got repossessed.
09:09 - HE JUST DID A BACKSTREET BOYS MOVE. YOU ALL SAW IT.
09:10 - THANK YOU JESUS.
09:11 - On the realz here, JC still looks damn good.
09:11 - Lance’s sporty dicky is quite the look.
09:12 - THAT’S IT?! THAT’S ALL HE LET THEM DO? KELLY AND MICHELLE GOT TO DO MORE THAN THAT AT THE SUPERBOWL!
09:13 - Justin just sent them back to steerage to die with Jack, Rose and the Irish people.
09:15 - I really love this song, you guys. Like a lot. Even though it’s about my least favorite “7th Heaven” cast member.
09:16 - I just realized how much better the song is if you pretend it’s about Stephen Collins.
09:19 - I’m glad you feel really good, Justin. You deserve it. NEVER FUCKING FORGET THAT BRITNEY GOT IT FIRST.
09:20 - “Those four guys there.” You mean the ones you cast into the depths of the basement where the HVAC units are?
09:26 - The DJ is wearing a gondolier hat.
09:27 - NSYNC is crying backstage right now because of Kevin Hart’s words.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
