Live-blogging the 2010 VMAs Despite the Fact That I Hate MTV

The darker side of the Grammys

Did anyone notice what wasn’t on the Grammys? Like, oh say, “Disturbia” all over the place? Or Rihanna at all? Hmm, that’s weird – Rihanna’s boyfriend, crooner Chris Brown, was missing as well. Coincidence? Or criminal complaint?

Brown, who was both a nominee and a scheduled performer, was being investigated for allegedly assaulting an unidentified woman the night before the show. He turned himself in to authorities as the show was being broadcast and was briefly held before posting $50,000 bail Sunday night, jail records showed.

Rihanna’s whereabouts weren’t immediately known.

Uh-oh! The producers then threw together a quick Justin Timberlake, Boyz II Men, Al Green and Keith Urban number.
