MTV VMAs: Fifth Harmony

It’s the night of the MTV Video Music Awards! With so much new music dropping and drama between all the musicians’, one can’t help but wonder if tonight’s show will go smoothly or be a complete trainwreck.

To be honest, I didn’t even know the VMAs were this week until yesterday. Other than Demi Lovato & Fifth Harmony, I had no idea who else was performing or who was set to host/present. And those are the only two performances I watched. #SorryNotSorry.

So naturally, this post will be short and sweet. I just wanted to communicate the feels I got from Fifth Harmony’s performance.

First let me start by saying congratulations to the girls for winning Best Pop Video for “Down”. As a foursome with new music, this was their first award and as a harmonizer I was very proud.

And then came their performance. I laughed in the beginning. I shouldn’t have, but I did. The performance started out with the four of them on stage joined by another hooded member in the center. As soon as “Angel” started, that hooded person was knocked off the stage by the beat. People want to keep talking about the elephant in the room, but obviously they’re tired of it. And people need to get over it. This was their way to end the topic. Camila is doing fine by herself and Fifth Harmony is still holding it down together.

Normani and Lauren slayed their verses in “Angel” before they fell back to join the fallen member and the lights cut off.

The performance continued on with their first single off the latest album, “Down”. Β The four appeared in separate boxes and kicked their way out before breaking it down with the chorus.

When Normani started the second verse and dropped into the splits, I was Bebe Rehxa and Hailee Steinfeld as seen in the following:

Then Ally went on with her verse before they all passed their mics off to the dancers to start a dance breakdown. Honestly, the dance was not clean at all. But i’m not a fan because of their dancing, I’m a fan of their voices and their personalities.

After the dance breakdown, Gucci came on stage with his own little back up dancer.

The end was epic as they sang the last chorus. Water started pouring down on them and on the last beat, they dropped the mic. Literally and figuratively.

Check out their performance:

Now I’m off to watch Game of Thrones. Have a great week everybody!

I still get jealous. (A Faking It Recap)

Hey fakers! (I’m not sure if that’s the correct name for Faking It fans, but i’ll just go with it)

“It’s all good,” but after last night’s season 3 premiere, I’m thinking otherwise. As a refresher of the finale, Karma and Shane took a lifeguarding job. Lauren stayed in Austin to keep the sisterly love going and Liam went on a journey to find his biological father. But most importantlyΒ Karmy was at odds when Amy decided to leave for the summer in an attempt to get over Karma.

We first see Amy explaining herself and how the summer was a good experience for her, but turns out she was just practicing on her newfound friends before facing Karma. Although she was obviously nervous about seeing Karma again, I love how the first thing she did when she got back was go to the pool to see her. But she didn’t expect to see Shane between Karma’s legs. GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER. They were in the pool and he picked her up on his shoulders! Frenemies turned to friends? I’ve said this before, and I’m saying it again. A lot can happen in a summer.

While Karma was expecting an apology, Amy wasn’t on the same page which led to awkward attempts at avoiding the subject all together.

After being brushed off by Karma, Amy made her way home and the redhead was not the only person made at Amy for leaving. Lauren was not impressed and even less impressed by the fact that Amy already had Karma problems. But it’s all good because Lauren is on a search to find a new Lisbeth since she left (yeah, she left to be a candle enthusiast. Kudos to you if you understand that reference). Only Lauren would try to find a “friendtern”. I loveΒ Faking It and their new hip words. Also, they snuck in a little jab about Amy not being on Twitter. Oh look, Rita tweeted!

My favorite bromance, Liam and Shane, reunited to exchange summer stories. In a turn of events, all attention was turned to Liam as Shane was trying to avoid something, much like Karma had. On a somewhat good note, Liam found out about hisΒ father/family!

Fast forward, Amy and Liam (who are both over Karma…sounds like a broken record) found themselves at a lifeguard bonfire that Karma and Shane both wanted to hide from them. Don’t get it twisted, though. Liamy are NOT friends — Liam was just Amy’s ride. Unfortunately for those two Karma lovers, a new lover invited them and blew their not so secret cover. Dylan, a new guy from Hawaii, seems to have replaced Amy and Liam in Karma and Shane’s lives. There was so much jealousy, I heard Nick Jonas’ song playing.

For the rest of the episode, Liam tries to win back Shane’s attention and even tries to one up Dylan by walking over hot coals. Dylan succeeded, Liam, not so much. I love watching jealous Liam and his need for competition. He doesn’t want to be replaced. It’s one thing that Dylan is Karma’s new beau, but to be BFFs with Shane too? That’s no bueno!

Karma continued to dodge Amy and her “explanation” only to do things that Amy never expected. Amy threwΒ some shade stating that Karma’s changing herself AGAIN just to fit in with the cool kids. Karmy finally had the talk and I was hit in the feels really hard. Sure, Amy changed and got over Karma, but when Karma changes it’s unacceptable. It’s understandable for Amy to feel that way, but at the same timeΒ I was irritated with Amy. I just can’t explain it. I’m glad Karma finally spoke up about how she really felt about Amy leaving and I felt her sentiment about Amy not caring. But Amy reiterated that she was not going to apologize for thinking about herself first. I’m a firm believer of taking care of yourself first, but Karma had me crying for her.

One of theΒ final scenes of the night was Karma getting a tattoo. Back in the day, Karma made Amy promise that she’d stop her if that ever happen. While Amy tried, the previous conversation push Karma to the edge. While she was getting that tattoo, it was easy to tell that she’d regret it.

And it looks like Amy regrets forgetting about Karma over the summer.

I’m excited to see how much each character grew over the summer. While Liam and Amy are supposedly “over” Karma, the trailer felt like no one was over anything.

I hate it when BFFs fight.

xoxo,
Adele
