MTV Europe Music Awards 2013

By November 11, 2013Music

Once again Miley Cyrus managed to cause uproar at the MTV Europe Music Awards held yesterday evening at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome.
If twerking on a latex covered dwarf, called ‘Little Britney’ wasn’t strange enough, she decided to shock spectators by lighting up a doobie onstage after receiving her award for Best Video. Oh well, I guess it was Amsterdam…
Miley was not the only one eager to show off her sexy moves, the shows’ Host Redfoo from LMFAO couldn’t get out of his suit quick enough to reveal what we can only assume is his favourite pair of sparkly speedos…
All the other performances were equally as dramatic, with Katy Perry singing suspended in mid-air and Robin Thicke continuing his controversial style whilst trying to cram as many half naked ladies onto the stage as possible.

Eminem, though was the real star of the show, taking home 3 awards, two for Global Icon and one for Best Hip Hop…all this on the same day as he was celebrating his seventh consecutive chart-topping UK album!
