Stee: Tough critic John Norris has just come in with the word for the evening: "Amazing."
Pamie: They were predicting "amazing" from the red carpet, and it has indeed come true. Amazing. Vivica A. Fox looked amazing!
Stee: The MTV Video Music Awards are like NBC doing an awards show for Best Show on NBC.
Pamie: And the nominees are: Will & Grace, Friends, Just Shoot Me, ER, and Will & Grace again.
Stee: No Macy Gray.
Pamie: So much Pepsi, and not enough people being stupid. Everybody was so safe.
Stee: This time I'm serious. If I'm recapping the 2004 awards, I should be shot with rubber bullets. I deserve a few bruises.
Pamie: But we do this for you.
SPECIAL BONUS AFTER-PARTY SCOOP FROM NYCBOY:
Holy Crap. It's 10 AM and I'm still drunk. THAT is a party. Where do I begin...
The after-party was held at the Four Seasons restaurant. Incidentally, it has to be one of the most beautifully designed restaurants ever. At least that's what I overheard the Fab 5 from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy saying. It started with the red carpet. You had to go through Security and a group of people standing behind a barricade looking at you. Very French Revolution. When I was going through, Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro were having their picture taken. Okay, she's gorgeous. Like, really pretty. I was expecting...I don't know, like, just boobs and eye liner, but I was wrong. Very pretty. Dave has a habit of actually putting his hand in her actual butt crack when he's embracing her. I don't know if this is something he does when he's nervous or it's an OCD, but it's something that he does. Saw it three times.
Patrick MacMullan was snapping shots of people as they were walking down the carpet. You know you you're at a good party if that's the case. Or, you know that someone is going to take their clothes off at this party, which I guess can make a party good, so same thing. Inside was lots of Playstation and Chambord, the apparent sponsors of the event. Tons of booze and food. Fred Durst and Ben Stiller were chatting. They must have a ton in common. Everyone was a little too West Coast for a NYC party. Lots of tans and spiky hair. There was an amazing DJ. I've never heard anything as good from a DJ. Really. I feel like I need to say that. Also, someone had a cutting of '80s films and videos on flat screens on constant loop that was really awesome to watch. Of course, I don't thing the crowd could stop star-gazing long enough to do that.
