MUST READ: 100 Greatest Singers of All Time



There's something a bout a voice that's personal, not unlike the particular odor or shape of a given human body. Summoned through belly, hammered into form by the throat, given propulsion by bellows of lungs, teased into final form by tongue and lips, a vocal is a kind of audible kiss, a blurted confession, a soul-burp you really can't keep from issuing as you make your way through the material world. How helplessly candid! How appalling!

MTV VMAs 2016: 20 Best and Worst Moments



MTV's 33rd annual Video Music Awards was intended to be the Rihanna show – since the 28-year-old entertainer was receiving the Video Vanguard Award and was programmed to perform four career-spanning medleys throughout the evening. But it turned into a Beyoncé mini-concert when she and her crew performed an epic medley of songs from Lemonade that left everyone with dropped jaws. Here's the highs and lows from a night of no-show celebs, anticlimactic reinventions and divas in the spotlight.

Best of the Night: Beyoncé

Best of the Night: Beyoncé


The 2016 VMAs were Rihanna's to own, but Beyoncé had other ideas. For 15 glorious minutes, she staged a Lemonade medley that doubled as a feminist pop spectacle for the ages. She began in full art-diva mode, standing stock still in a white cape and funereal hat. As "Pray You Catch Me" began, 16 dancers flanked her in a Guggenheim-worthy tableau; then, in a clear nod to Black Lives Matter, they gradually fell to the stage in bursts of red light. The mood lightened but Bey's fierceness only intensified during the reggae-tinged "Hold Up," as she and her crew began a long trek through an awed crowd. A triumphant "Sorry" led into a blaring "Don't Hurt Yourself" in which Beyoncé tore into the song's defiant taunts to an unfaithful spouse. "If y'all came to slay, sing along with me," Bey told the audience at the start of an anthemic "Formation." Her dancers arrayed around her in elaborate Busby Berkeley patterns, culminating in an enormous female symbol. Beyoncé's act of taking a bat to the camera at the end of "Hold Up" was badass but superfluous – she had already smashed up an otherwise staid night.

Best: Rihanna, Take One

The Video Music Awards have reveled in MTV's ability to wrangle A-list stars for surprises. Sunday night's show started off with a fairly big one: Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient Rihanna would be celebrating her lifetime-achievement Moonman with not one, not two, but four performances culled from her formidable catalog. Illuminated by pink lights that made the stage, and her outfit, seem inspired by spun sugar, the 28-year-old opened the 32nd running of the VMAs with the urgent "Don't Stop The Music" — which, perhaps not coincidentally, samples the "Soul Makossa"-inspired breakdown from Jackson's 1983 "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" single. While Rihanna's freewheeling attitude extended to her giving up on lipsyncing at certain points, the infectious medley of her most banging club tracks — which also included "Only Girl (In The World)," "We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been" — got the VMAs off to a high-energy start.
Best: Rihanna, Take Two

Best: Rihanna, Take Two

Rihanna's second medley of the night was a party — quite literally, as revelers who were ready to move along with whatever songs she served up surrounded her onstage. Opening with a flip of the taunting "Rude Boy" that incorporated the beat from Chaka Demus and Pliers' spiny dancehall crossover hit "Murder She Wrote" (itself lifted from the Maytals' "Bam Bam"), RiRi led her guests in a sweaty run through "Rude Boy," followed by the playful "What's My Name?" and the sinewy "Work." Drake didn't show up for the latter, but the energy Rihanna and her phalanx of partiers had onstage more than made up for it.
Worst: Rihanna, Take Three

Worst: Rihanna, Take Three

It might have been the collective audience hangover after Beyoncé's Lemonade spectacle, or it may just have been that the songs picked for Rihanna's third medley — the acidic "Needed Me," the banger-brooder "Pour It Up," the vengeful "Bitch Better Have My Money" — didn't have as many moments that translate into big TV. Rihanna's flaunting of a death-metal-styled logo — which was worn by her phalanx of dancers, WWE merch-flogging style — was probably the most important development resulting from this particular performance. How the shirts, which have RIHANNA splayed across them in a garish puke green, haven't yet shown up at her official store yet is a mystery.   
Best: Rihanna, Take Four

Best: Rihanna, Take Four

Sometimes songs come along that completely reframe artists' careers, allowing them to show sides of themselves that were always present, but never at the forefront. That's certainly the case with Rihanna's torchy Anti track "Love on the Brain," which is a tour de force that lets her show just how much emotional energy she can wring out of a track — its passing resemblance to Queen's similarly tortured "Somebody to Love" is only enhanced by the ferocity of her vocal, which is wracked with heartache and ambivalent hope. Rihanna's final medley of the night bookended her current single with the aching "Stay" and the glittery "Diamonds," but it was the rip-roaring run through "Brain" that cast her pop megastardom in a new light.
Worst: The Anticlimactic Return of Britney Spears

Worst: The Anticlimactic Return of Britney Spears

We all wished it would be a triumph. We all feared it might be a disaster. Instead, Britney's much-discussed return to the VMAs was just depressingly competent. The visual design was intriguing enough, starting with a silhouetted Britney performing recognizably Britney-ish moves during her new single "Make Me," and the star shined in a skimpy, spangled yellow unitard and boots once she appeared in the flesh. But Ms. Spears not only had to share the stage with the lanky, leather-clad G-Eazy — a capable but mostly charmless rapper — but she had to sing the hook on his hit, "Me Myself and I." The interaction between the two was shockingly sexless even when she was reaching up between his legs from behind. Worst of all, it was downright cruel of MTV to force Britney to take the stage just after Beyoncé's showstopping performance.
Best: We Like the New Kanye

Best: We Like the New Kanye

Kanye West inhabits a very specific Venn diagram where "boundless creativity" meets "oppressive fame." Because of this he not only can treat one of the biggest awards shows as an open mic to just "riff," but the audience will eat it up like he's Louis C.K. or Jerry Seinfeld. He had jokes but also had serious words about murders in Chicago; he alluded to tabloid fodder and defended his controversial video's use of tabloid fodder; he had a zen narcissism ("I am Kanye West … and that feels really great to say") but also made room to call Chance the Rapper "the future." Plus he premiered a music video — the racy, Flashdance-meets-Cat People "Fade" — not on a streaming service where you have to come to him, but on a TV show that everyone was already watching.
Best: Beyoncé Wins Video of the Year

Best: Beyoncé Wins Video of the Year

After racking up 11 nominations — more than any other artist, ever — and delivering a gripping, 15-minute Lemonade medley, it was no surprise that Beyoncé scored the ultimate VMA. "I dedicate this award to the people of New Orleans," said Bey who set her groundbreaking video in the city. From the city's roots in the slave trade, to the economic and environmental devastation it faced post-Hurricane Katrina, to an ongoing epidemic of police violence, "Formation" is a tribute to the endurance of its people, most notably those who are black and poor. Yet Beyoncé and director Melina Matsoukas take it a step further, making the case not just for black survival, but for black empowerment in a series of striking images: her middle fingers up in funeral garb; black women linking their arms in dance; a newspaper headlined "More Than a Dreamer" with MLK's face on the cover; a standoff between a child in a hoodie and row of riot cops; the words "STOP SHOOTING US" scrawled on a wall; Beyoncé herself lain across a New Orleans cop car, sinking in the midst of a flood. To Beyoncé, New Orleans is not just the city she loves; New Orleans is the mirror through which the United States must see itself, warts and all. Whereas 2013's "***Flawless" once called for the world to bow down, 2016's "Formation" is the call to rise up.
Worst: No Mention of Music Video Pioneers David Bowie and Prince

Worst: No Mention of Music Video Pioneers David Bowie and Prince

It's pretty hard to imagine what modern pop music would be like if David Bowie and Prince had never existed, but it's impossible to imagine MTV without their visual flair setting dazzling examples in its earliest years. And yet, the VMAs chose not to mourn either recently deceased genius. The night lacked even a respectful mention of either legend by a presenter — though Bowie did appear briefly onscreen when the video for "Blackstar" won an award for art direction. Still, you'd think Bowie, the winner of the very first Video Vanguard Award and a man who was making videos for a full decade before MTV was born, would merit some acknowledgement. The Video Vanguard is an award, it should be noted, the Prince never received – though maybe MTV thought he'd be insulted by the honor once they re-named it for Michael Jackson.
Worst: Host Schizophrenia

Worst: Host Schizophrenia

This is the sixth VMAs with no host, a situation that causes the night to swirl with directionlessness and confusion. Key & Peele were spotlight stealers with their performance as a pair of social media influencers snarking and self-aggrandizing, but they were clearly doing bits when the night called for leadership ("Why would you cut to us while she's still on stage?" quipped a desperate Peele about Beyoncé, in one of those moments where every joke has a grain of truth). The night was completely schizophrenic bouncing from K&P doing traditional sketch comedy, to DJ Khaled doing his sincere motivational speaker act, to Jay Pharoah doing some accurate but unfunny impressions to Nicole Byer doing a millennial-ish hyperbole ("I'm dead!") that routinely and confusingly crossed the line between "Christopher Guest-style award show commentator" parody and "actual enthusiasm." We can only imagine if MTV just gave Key & Peele the space to provide multiple voices themselves.
