Gaga in drag smokin' a cig.
The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards show was packed full of "entertaining" surprises.

It was revealed that Beyonce is preggers, Rick Ross paints quietly like Bob Ross, and Rebecca Black doesn't know how to do the Dougie. Of course, the confounding fashion decisions were perhaps the most memorable part of it all.

If you had a pulse, you were alerted by sunrise to the fact that Lady Gaga had donned a greasy pomp and brought out her dude voice for a nightlong appearance by male alter-ego Joe Calderone. Smoking a cig and acting about as tough as a musical theater major, she opened up the awards fully clothed. Perhaps the one real question about Mother, uh, Mr. Monster's getup is: Where'd her boobs go?

Katy Perry accepted her award for Best Video of the Year wearing a cube of cheddar on her cranium. Though the geometry and Mad Men-eque look was taken straight off Dior's Fall 2011 couture collection, it works on Perry's curvy body. We forgive her for making our tummy grumble.

​Justin Bieber came in full lesbian attire last night to the VMAs. From the mom 'do to the girl glasses, the Biebz really made a statement. That he is indeed not a boy, not yet a woman. The YSL pin really did him in, though. Have you ever seen anyone but an old white lady or a very gay New Yorker wearing a pin like that? You haven't, because it's not done. Biebz went out of his way to thank both God and Jesus in his acceptance speech. Once he discovers his true self, he'll be thanking the goddess.

Looks like Miley Cyrus borrowed her VMA gown from the closet of Candice Bergen.

No doubt there are like 10,000 references we're not getting here. Or maybe Nicki Minaj got drunk at Toys "R" Us and threw this outfit together. Is she a Cosplay guerilla? Why is she covering her face? Ms. Minaj may look like the toy box at a kindergarten class. But it's OK because she acted right when Butthead asked her to participate in a threesome with he and Beavis.

I second Aaron's comment whole-heartedly.  Also, the comments regarding the Biebz's attire, and your advice for Selena to "take back your mom's YSL pin".   !!!!

"acting about as tough as a musical theater major" made me cry laughing.  

And Beyonce looks terrified in that picture.

Why does Bieber have a freaking baby snake wrapped around his hand?! That's the real fashion statement.
