While Lady Gaga and Kanye West Come out as Winners at the MTV Video Music Awards, Chelsea Handler Comes out the Loser; Taylor Swift’s ‘Savvy Insult’ of West

Sep 13, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The big winners this year at the MTV Video Music Awards were Lady Gaga, with eight awards for her record 13 nominations, and Kanye West, who redeemed himself from his microphone-grabbing stunt last year, The New York Times said in a review of the show.  But this year’s big loser was the show’s host, Chelsea Handler, who "was among the worst in the show’s history," the story remarks. 

While Handler is "consistently hilarious and inappropriate" during her interviews with musicians on her TV show, "Chelsea Lately," that didn’t translate for the awards ceremony. "Here, she never looked comfortable, undone by nerves, brittle material and the wattage of those around her," the article says.

Her material was "purposefully out-of-touch, with brief, alarming flashes of off-color racial humor." West, meanwhile, wore a red suit to sing "Runaway" with what the story says was "knowing, bombastic humility," leading the audience to chant his name.

Taylor Swift, who had been West’s victim during last year’s microphone stunt, sang a new song called "Innocent" earlier in the evening, a song directed at West that was "an extremely savvy insult masquerading as the high road," the review said.

  1. chelsea handler was the best part of the show. this reporter is out of touch with the world. grow up loser. Chelsea Rocks!!!!

  2. Maybe to simpletons like you… but Chelsea is a bit out of touch and stale.
    The midget didn’t make her any cooler, either. Lame.

  3. chelsea handler is not out of touch. she was funny..mtv is out of touch and has been for many years

  4. That’s her sidekick Chuy on her late night show. and it’s ‘little person’ not midget, retard. why don’t you try to be a little more PC.

  5. Your attempt at irony was rude and insenstive.

  6. Forget out of touch, Chelsea just wasn’t funny. That’s the worst crime of all.

  7. If Chelsea Handler was half as sexy
    and talented as she thinks she is, she’d be a thousand times sexier and more talented than she actually is. Let me de-convolute that.
    Chelsea Handler is neither sexy nor talented. What she is, is on television. For now.

  8. A lot of things were out-of-date, but calling someone a retard is from another century – the early part. If you want to be insulting, you should aim to insult only the person you are attacking, not an entire population.

  9. Didn’t Chelsea say herself as she was on stage, “That’s Chuy my Mexican Midget.” I was a bit shocked by that. That wasn’t funny either

  10. And therein lies the joke ignoramuses. She refers to him as a midget on the show. Let’s all try to relax a little bit.
