2008 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Arrivals (Sorry)

2008 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Arrivals (Sorry)

When I was a kid, the Video Music Awards was the most exciting night in modern rock. You never knew which member of Nirvana was gonna get hit in the head with a bass. It was crazy. That was a long time ago, though, back when Arsenio Hall was considered cutting edge and the Real World cast wasn’t drunk. This year Arsenio Hall isn’t even invited! I digress. Mad Men’s not on for a few hours, so let’s watch this year’s ceremony together. Britney is opening and Kanye is closing (“Love Lockdown”?) and in between, so much sexually charged, self-deprecating humour from Russell Brand awaits. After the jump, an almost-live feed of red carpet arrival photos so you can see what everyone is wearing (“everyone” = actors from The Hills). T-Pain’s elephant has some serious bling.
