Selena Gomez was all fired up as the host of the 2011 MTV EMA in Belfast, Northern Ireland, yesterday, and no, seriously… She started the EMAs surrounded by flames! The “Love You Like A Love Song” singer was as composed as usual, but you know in her head she had to be thinking, “OMFG! FIRE!” Pro status!
Lady Gaga was the big EMA winner, which is a title she’s becoming increasingly accustomed to, as she took home four EMAs: Biggest Fans, Best Female, Best Song and Best Video for “Born This Way.” And of course she accepted the awards in a HUGE CRAZY FUTURE ALIEN DRESS, because uh-duh. Katy Perry took home the EMA for Best Live Act, and even though she was “exhausted,” she still looked better than I do at my most rested. (Release a makeup line already, girlfriend.) Other winners include Justin Bieber for Best Male and Best Pop, 30 Seconds To Mars for Best Alternative and Best World Stage, and Bruno Mars for Best New and Best Push. (Sorry we didn’t have an extra EMA for you, random award show streaker.)
Speaking of (segues!) Bruno Mars, his live performance of “Marry You” reminded us all that pompadours and fitted suits are never a bad idea. Ever. And elsewhere on the performance front, Coldplay’s Chris Martin rocked a baby tee during their lighters-in-the-air rendition of “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall,” and Selena Gomez found time between hosting and changing her outfit nine times (!!!) for a super glittery performance of “Hit The Lights.” High five to you, Biebs. She the cutest EVERRRR.
