Carnival Of Personal Finance #428 – VMA’s Edition

Last night for the first time in a very long time I watched the VMA’s. To be perfectly honest, I only watched it for one reason, which started off as a rumor so I wasn’t even sure if it was going to happen live from Brooklyn. As I sat down and watched the VMA’s I couldn’t stop screaming almost an hour in. Why you ask? Because this happened. And apparently, I’m 16 all over again.

Did I ever tell you guys N’SYNC was my first concert? I was 5th row center stage from all of the goodness in 2002. No shame. 11 years later Lance Bass still looks as hot as ever.

To keep the pop culture going today, I wanted to share Moon Men with all of you and your wonderful submissions.

  1. Nice! I’m trying very hard to work in some VMA reference today. Might have an idea…

  2. Uhhh yes Lance Bass. I was convinced I was going to marry him at age 12. He’s still gorgeous.

  3. N SYNC was the highlight of the night. I am going to see Justin Timberlake in concert on October 31 and I hope they make an appearance!

    Can I just ask – How the hell did Miley Cyrus get on the remix of Blurred Lines???

  4. N’SYNC reunion was pretty cool. JT should have let his buddies perform a little longer though. Miley Cyrus has a screw loose. Thanks for including me in this fun VMA carnival!

  5. Thanks so music for hosting!

    I keep hearing Hannah Montana did a newsworthy performance. Too bad I missed it.

  6. Umm…was it on cable? I miss out on everything that is shown on cable!

  7. Thank you for including my blog! I appreciate the support!!
