The MTV 2010 VMAs: We were born this way, baby!

Gaga, who had been nominated for a record-breaking 13 awards, won again for Best Pop Video, requiring assistance with her 1,000 lb. dress, as she told Jane Lynch she loved her, and, after explaining that she refused to change her “Bad Romance” video, screamed, “We were born this way, baby!”

Aziz Ansari, one of the funniest people ever, cracked up when Ronnie from Jersey Shore explained the whole T-Swift/Kanye debacle last year, echoing my “who really gives a crap, it was funny” sentiment and annoyance that T-Swift actually wrote a song about it. Whatever. I preferred Kanye’s song about “douche bags, a–holes, and scumbags” anyway.

Hayley Williams and B.o.B., who had never previously met each other to record or shoot the video for “Airplanes,” finally took the stage together, after which Ms. Williams launched into “Only Exception” with Paramore, which melted me into a puddle of sappiness and bunny rabbits.

Speaking of bunny rabbits, Queen Cher herself made an entrance in her “If I Could Turn Back Time” fishnet outfit and commented that she was officially the “oldest chick with the biggest hair and littlest outfit,” when Lady Gaga was Baby Gaga. Too bad wearing nothing doesn’t faze anyone these days. As if passing the torch to the next bizarrely dressed, trailblazing diva, Cher presented Lady Gaga with the award for Video of the Year. No one objected to Gaga’s win, and Cher held Gaga’s foul meat purse while Gaga announced her new album, “Born this Way,” and belted out a little ditty from what’s probably the title track. Pure awesomeness.

While there was no real shock value at the VMAs this year, the stars somehow kept it drama-free, LGBT-friendly, and decently entertaining. The folks at MTV should take some tips from Gaga and us Gays if they really want to throw a party.

What was your favorite moment from last night’s awards show?
