That right there? That is SO Brooklyn.
  • That right there? That is SO Brooklyn.

As you probably heard/read/watched/absorbed through osmosis, the MTV Video Music Awards took place in Brooklyn last night and oh! fun was had, you know? There was twerking, and foam fingers, and Taylor Swift mouthing "shut the fuck up" to that guy in that boy band, and Will Smith and family looking scandalized at Miley Cyrus's performance, and Jimmy Fallon declaring his undying love for Justin Timberlake, and a brief 'NSYNC reunion that was reminiscent of the Destiny's Child reunion at the Super Bowl in that Justin is 'NSYNC's Beyoncé and all anyone really cared about was JT. But who was the biggest star of the night? Was it Katy Perry? Was it Jared Leto? (haha...of course not) Was it Lady Gaga? No. It was none of those people. No, the biggest star of the night was Brooklyn. That's right. Brooklyn was as big a part of this year's VMAs as Kanye West. So, in honor of Brooklyn, here's a round-up of some of the best BK-related tweets about the VMAs last night. Some of which are pretty spot-on, and some of which are clearly by people who learned all about Brooklyn from the New York Times Styles section.
