So, you probably watched the VMAs last night, right?
From home, it probably seems like a ~gLaMoRoUs~ event filled with celebs, music, and more celebs.
But I wasn't at home — I was part of MTV's "Friends + Family" casted audience, which means I was standing on the floor of the show with thousands of screaming fans. This is my survival story of what I experienced last night.
1.Actually getting into the event is TRULY an adventure.
2.It goes without saying, but you're REALLY close to the action...
3....And that includes the celebrity section!
4.This also means you *might* have the best views in the entire house.
5.And you're also in the "fun" section of the audience.
6.You're not supposed to have phones, but that rule was meant to be broken.
7.You're part of the show.
8.You have to move every single commercial break and it is INSANITY.
9.In a way, being in the pit is like being in bootcamp.
10.And standing in the pit is one of the most exhausting physical challenges you'll ever complete.
11.For better and for worse, this is not a normal concert experience.
12.But at the end of the day, all the screaming, moving around, and standing is worth it.
