Not Invited: Man Gaga
This Week's Prompt: What was the biggest surprise of the VMAs?
Z-Ro: I didn't watch that shit. I was at the gym with [Memphis C. Work] getting it in.
Fat Pimp: Adele not winning, because she sold more than everybody put together.
Scooby: Rick Ross didn't get his own set.
Kritikal: Tyler [the Creator] winning Best New Artist. Lil Wayne is an idiot, but Tyler winning that award was pretty big.
Show: Biggest VMA surprise was obviously Beyonce's pregnancy.
Mic Skills: The biggest surprise was Lady Gaga dressed as a man, because people have been saying she's a hermaphrodite from the jump. Chris Brown's performance is second because of the standing ovation after. Dude has been redeemed.
Tawn P: Beyonce's pregnancy, because she stole the show. I expected she was before the VMAs.
Chingo Bling: Pitbull should've won all that chit. Also surprised that Adele didn't sing the song people wanted to hear ("Rolling in the Deep"). Chris Brown killed it.
Medicine Girl: I didn't watch those shenanigans this year. I prefer making money.
Young Sensation: I enjoyed it, man. Biggest surprise was a mix of Beyonce being pregnant and Lady Gaga's horrible man role [laughs].
Kyle Hubbard: That Drake was able to keep from busting into tears and screaming "Marry me Tunechi!" while introducing Wayne. Dude's in love. Beyonce being preggo was actually cool. I am already jealous of that kid and it is barely a fetus.
D-Risha: By reading Twitter only, Beyonce announcing that she is pregnant and Jigga becoming a father; great moment. A big reason is because if you're a fan of Jay-Z you can really appreciate how happy he is or has been at the moment.
Delo: Lady Gaga had that outfit on the whole show and Lil Wayne's pants didn't split.
Brad Gilmore: Beyonce pregnant; the royal bloodline continues [laughs]!
