It's an undebatable fact that the MTV VMA's are a big waste of time. Britney Spears jiggling her way across a stage and Kanye West throwing yet another temper tantrum is not news. But damn if it's not entertaining to watch the stars in all of their drunken glory! Aside from doing some huge round-up, I'm just glad Detroit's Kid Rock got the best of Tommy Lee in the Battle of the Exes. That shit was funny. Most folks have already heard that Kid Rock decked Tommy Lee--both men were married to Pam Anderson (she divorced them both) and have a history of mutual hatred between them. And it was probably inevitable that some drama would surface with all three of them under one roof when free booze is involved. Still, hearing that Tommy got bitch-slapped (backhanded no less) and socked in the face for taunting Kid Rock is just hilarious. Read more about the whole night here. --Jonathan Cunningham
