Courtney Love blasts MTV VMAs

She criticises urban slant and virgin pop stars

Courtney Love has taken to her Myspace blog to rant about last night’s MTV Video Music Awards, and says that even the fact that her buddy Russell Brand was presenting didn’t entice her into going.

“I didnt go to the ‘VMAs’, as we used to call them, but they’ve gotten so fucking urban I don’t know, I guess Van Toffler thought (he’s an exec at MTV) he was being edgy and he was by letting my darkling prince Brand host the MTV awards – but they’re not the ‘VMAs’ and they never will be again,” rants Love.

After blasting the ceremony for its urban content, Love tore into clean-living heart throbs The Jonas Brothers for wearing ‘promise’ rings to proclaim they are preserving their virginity.

“I had zero desire to watch, let alone go, and that’s one of my very favourite people I’ve ever known or had the honour of being friends and fiends with hosting it, so I feel horribly rude that my desire not to watch assholes with chastity rings – oh, for fuck’s sake, I’ve had some great conversations but not one has ever ended in an orgasm, y’all need some pussy and some cock and shut the hell up.”

Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards were introduced by Britney Spears, who went on to win three awards for her ‘Piece Of Me’ video: Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video Of The Year.

Spears appeared calm and relaxed at the ceremony, a far cry from last year’s botched comeback performance which reportedly saw her run offstage in tears.
