13 Rookie Mistakes I Made The First Time I Went To The VMAs
I was invited to attend the VMAs as a guest (i.e., a non-VIP). This is what it's like for everyone who isn't allowed on the red carpet.
Following the crowd.
Wearing my hair down.
Not bringing food.
Not preparing myself for the Nicki Minaj acts.
Asking the teen next to me who 5SOS is.
Not bringing extra deodorant.
Using up my phone battery.
Asking the workers if there was an outlet somewhere.
Trying to get a solid picture.
Asking someone taking a selfie if they want me to take their picture.
Wearing eye makeup even though I knew Sam Smith was going to be performing.
And not bringing Kleenex even though I knew Beyoncé was the last act.
