The Comment Awards Are Kissing at the VMAs

Hi, pals! It’s been super hard for me to get out of bed for work this week, and this dude I share my bed with just might be why:

My chihuahua mix, Cyrus, sleeping in bed

(Just thought you might need some cuteness this week. You’re welcome.)

This week, Riese debuted a new column and reminded us all about when Madonna kissed Britney Spears at the 2003 VMAs.

Want to know more about your Mercury sign and what it means for your relationships? There’s a column for that!

Anna Kendrick is mostly straight, but also maybe just like a li’l tiny bit gay? Sometimes? Kinda?

Archie wrote up everything you ever wanted to know about the Hanky Code! No word yet on what this means for the bandanas they give us at A-Camp.

I think I speak for everyone when I say that Constance Wu is fantastic in everything, and oh look! She was in a lesbian mumblecore film that’s available on Netflix!

Here’s Em on how the concept of “age-appropriate” sex ed can harm LGBTQ+ kids.

Finally, I am SO. EXCITED FOR THIS: La Boda Jota #1: We’re Not Gonna Wait ‘Til I’m 28. Yvonne’s getting married!!!!!

And then there were your comments!

    • As soon as I hit the “Submit Your Comment” button, I had to rush up to look at the comments and make sure I didn’t just put my entire leg in my mouth.

      • But I’m excited for the return of The Good Place! I even watched the finale again to prepare

        • Yeah, I rewatched most of season two, and I saw something that made me sad. I realize that they’re setting up Eleanor and Chidi, but they did something that dashed my Eleanor and Tahani hopes. They had Chidi say, “I just want to meet a girl by having her walk through my door and say, ‘Teach me everything you know about philosophy.'” And that’s what Eleanor did in the season finale. My attempt #218 heart is broken.

    • I thought I was gonna get one for that “my hand will go on” comment on that NSFW Sunday about masturbation but…

    • *bow* I shared ’cause it made me giggle when I thought of it. Also props to QG for the perfect comment award title.

  1. Standing outside on my 10 min break basking in the sun & warmth of these glorious comments ❤️? happy Friday y’all!

  2. Thanks for this! I was having a bit of a crummy last couple of days, and this totally brightened my mood. <3

  3. The VMAs are always a hot topic of conversation, with everyone talking about who won what and who was wearing what. This year, the VMAs were especially interesting because there were multiple award categories including the “Comment Awards.” The “Comment Awards” were given to those who had the most comments on social media. I would like to read article now to know how to hire the best writer online. The winners of the “Comment Awards” included Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and Kim Kardashian.
