New York has experienced more natural disasters in one week than anyone can count. From an earthquake, to Hurricane Irene, and a tornado watch this weekend was one to remember-even though we were all
stuck safe indoors with our err loved ones. NYC’s public transportation system-the largest in the world- was shut down by noon on Saturday and will slowly restore service on Monday Morning.
Now being indoors was okay for 2 reasons. #1: The surplus of food we all bought for hurricane preparedness was available and unabashedly taken advantage of. And #2: MTV became relevant again for a few hours during its annual VMA awards. Noteworthy performances included Bruno Mars‘ tribute to the late Amy Winehouse, powerhouse vocals from Adele, and the Carter baby bump. Let me clarify the latter portion of the aforementioned statement.
After a show-stopping performance of one of her many love ballads she tore out of her sequined tux jacket, rubbed her bump, and flashed a dazzling smile. The pregnancy glow radiated all over the crowd and the proud sperminator, Jay-Z (S. Carter), beamed from the audience.
And there you go NYC. You’ll be able to tell your grandkids that you survived a quake, a ‘cane, and you witnessed the music royalty b. bump- dramatic pause- all in a week.
