‘Twilight’ Stars Get Cut Off At The MTV VMAs [w/Video]
Empress Eve   |  @   |  

I suffered through teh MTV VIdeo Music Awards not to hear the music (oh lord, no), but to see the presenters. As I Tweeted earlier, the VMAs would be a pretty cool show if only there was no music.

Anyhow, an hour into the show, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Cam Gigandet, and Taylor Lautner, stars of Summit Entertainment’s highly anticipated Twilight, came out to introduce the live performance for best rock nominee Paramore.

The intro was incredibly brief and all the actors got to say their lines, except Pattinson, who was obviously supposed to do the actually announcement, but he only got to say “Please welcome…” before VMA host Russell Brand cut him off and started blabbing. Pattinson tried to talk into his mike two or so more times, but couldn’t get a word in and in the end, it was Brand who said the band’s name, which led into the performance.

Ok, fine, it’s a live broadcast so shit happens, but what’s insulting is how MTV has been promoting the hell of out the fact that the Twilight stars would be at the VMAs and then you barely see them and they get cut off, too.

What makes me laugh is that BEFORE the show aired, MTV Movies Blog posted an entry asking Twilight fans to post their reaction to the VMA presentation, thinking, I’m sure, that everyone would be so happy. But after that foul up, the comments are coming in from many a pissed-off fan.

So, screw MTV’s page, leave a comment here below to let us here at Geeks of Doom know what you think of the botched-up Twilight presentation.

Just found the footage of the Twilight segment at YouTube, so watch it here below while it’s still online.



  1. I wasn’t quite sure if Pattinson’s mic was malfunctioning b/c it happened so fast and it looked like Russell Brand just took over. All around big shame to MTV, plus I didn’t like how they dissed Harry Potter in the last segment’s promo. No one puts Potter in the corner!

  2. I am so pissed that we didn’t get to hear Rob! That was the whole point of me watching!

  3. I cant believe it myself
    when they mentioned twilight
    i almost passed out
    the VMA’s was horrible
    very poorly done
    and Russel Brand is a complete idiot
    how could he do that to Robert.
    That was a waste of my Sunday Night.

  4. Rob has a lot of class, so he’ll take it graciously. I am a little irritated that I wasted an hour of my life listening to music I hate just to see the “Twilight” cast treated poorly.

    Comment by Becky — September 7, 2008 @ 11:25 pm

  5. I am soo pissed. Not just because the twilight group got cut off, but the host was just plain rude. He also made a rude comment about the Jonas brothers, I personally don’t like them, but that doesn’t mean you have to make fun of them. So I sat and suffered through the whole show just to hear Rob say “Let’s Welcome…”

    Dumb Jerk Host.

  6. Watch your back, Russel Brand, you little bitch, that’s all I’m saying. The Twilighters are pissed. You cut off our KING.

    Nobody cuts of Robert Pattinson!

  8. You are all retarded. Russell Brand was the only saving grace of this show and it’s quite clear here that he was being told to hurry these ”stars ” up because they could barely read the teleprompters and they had to move on to the performance. Frankly, if it hadn’t been for him linking to Paramore, I think we’d have all fallen asleep. Those Twilight idiots have the most monotonous voices I’ve ever heard.

  9. holy crap! that was so unbelievably upsetting. i cant believe they were treated like crap. MTV obviously doesnt realize how important that cast is to us Twilighters

  11. I hated this! Russel Brand pissed me off to the max. Everyone got the speak and that douche bag just got him off. I wanted to jump through the tv and punch him in the face! He honestly needs to go back to the UK and stay there cause he isn’t funny at all. I was soo excited that they were introducing Paramore cause Paramore and Twilight are my favorite things in life and I was getting all amp’d when Rob started to talk and then douche bag just interrupted. This pissed me off the MAX!!!!

    Comment by Ashley — September 8, 2008 @ 12:38 am

  12. I agree with what pretty much everyone else has said so far… I suffered through the VMAs (shudder-such hideous music-or at least 99.9% of it was) just to see the Twilight cast- MTV spent a lot of time hyping up their appearance, so I was pretty excited- and then the cast not only had the shortest introduction time of any of the “introducers” (I just made up that word- I don’t know what else to call them), Rob- Robert Pattinson, of all people!- gets cut off several times and doesn’t even get to say his lines!! of course he was awesome and handled it great, but i think i punched my TV a couple of times (after I got over standing there in shock)… anger problems, you know… anyway, I was SO pissed at MTV after those hideous video awards, without even a decent intro from the twilight cast to make it better. sorry this comment went on far longer than i intended it to.

    Comment by VanessaC — September 8, 2008 @ 12:40 am

  13. right on emperess eve for posting up so quickly. haha i’m right with you on the mtv blog, thats pretty hilarious. mtv goin to have a huge backlash from twilight fans. Don’t make us angry.. or there will be hell to pay… It truly does suck, i didn’t see any interviews on the red carpet, any panning to them on screen or anything. I did think russel was really funny, but come on mtv, give us at least something. I do hope they make it up to us, or our voice will be heard. *shakes head*

    Comment by EM — September 8, 2008 @ 12:40 am

  14. IThe only reason I watched the VMA’s was to see Robert Pattinson present the awards and that stupid Russel character cuts him off?!?!?! What the heck?!?! All the promotion that Twilight cast was presenting an award and that’s what they show the fans?! I was very dissapointed.

    Comment by Kimmy — September 8, 2008 @ 12:50 am

  15. I was totally pissed with what happened over at the VMA’s. Many a Twilight fans were so hyped about seeing the cast, Rob especially and then that dude would just cut him off. We want Rob!!!

    Comment by spuddevaugh — September 8, 2008 @ 1:05 am

  16. wow the only reason i watched the damn VMAs was because the twilight cast but hell they werent on there but 2 mins and rob didnt get to talk it was shitty and i really dont like that russel dude how could he say all that shit about those ppl who never done anything to them right there on national television what a idiot and at first i thought i was gonna be the only one pissed about it but i notice alot of people were thinkin the same thing i was that was so stupid! it kinda made me sad when i didnt get to see them anymore or hear them.

    Comment by Jessica — September 8, 2008 @ 1:07 am

  17. Yea, i was excited that they were on the VMA’s but i thought they were going to present an award. Instead, they presented Paramore. There was no red carpet interview from any of the cast members. Taylor and Kristen got to same somethings. But Rob was about to introduce Paramore. But Rusell cut him off. Yea he did get cut off twice. Yea, MTV is going to hear some complaints from Twilight fans. But i liked the VMA’s just cutting off the twilight cast and Robert Pattinson was not good.

    Comment by Melissa Ann — September 8, 2008 @ 1:13 am

  18. It seems Twilight was used for nothing more than to get more MTV viewers. This was the worst VMA ever. Shame on MTV.

  21. OMG!!! I was soooooo mad when he didn’t get to say his line! I was glad to hear the others but Rob was who I really wanted to see and Russell completely ruined it!!! Not to mention the entire night he kept sticking his foot in his mouth saying crap about the Jonas Brothers and a bunch of others. The entire time i was like “Please stop talking before you make a jerk of yourself!” But obviously he didn’t and this was just icing on the freaking cake!!!
    If i ever see him in person………..

    he better watch out!!! LMAO

    Comment by Tiffany — September 8, 2008 @ 1:29 am

  22. to Shane… i guess you have no idea what the Twilight fandom is going through since what you just said sounded like vomit. MTV has been building up this moment for about a week saying that the Twilight cast will be presenting at the VMA’s… therefore many of the Twilight fans turned to MTV to see the actors of their favorite book. HOWEVER what we got was total crap. the actors where not monotone, they sounded as if they were rushed. Maybe they felt a bit uncomfortable with Russell Brand breathing down their necks. They were in the aisle not on the stage, and they had such little air time… so of course we are a bit pissed off… it felt as if MTV used the Twilight community to boost their ratings…
    Rusell Brand was and will be the worst host. His monologue was rude and dull all in all MTV = EPIC FAIL

    Comment by deb — September 8, 2008 @ 1:30 am

  23. I SOO AGREE!! I got really pissed off of what that damn Russel did!!! I was anxious to see the Twilight stars, especially Robert and when he was going to end it by presenting the band, Russel interrupted him like wanting to talk more. That’s soo messed up and I feel really bad for Robert and I hope it didn’t hurt his self-esteem and that he would not b afraid to present again. I am so MAD at Russel and he is a bad host!! I swear! he was also dissing the Jonas Brothers b.c of their beliefs just trying to be funny. Thats not how you are funny stupid shit. I am so glad the critic Perez Hilton has a negative response for Russel too. So Fu**** the shit out of you Russel and stay in your own country!! I will always support Robert, the whole cast, and the movie TWILIGHT!! hope mtv sees this comment and do something about what has happen. apologize to Robert!

  24. I can’t believe Russell Brand Cut Rob off!! I hate him soooo much now! How dare they do that after all the hype they were giving twilight! Now the high school musical cast gets more stage time then them? WTF?

    Comment by Chey — September 8, 2008 @ 1:37 am

  25. i liked russel
    he was damn right hilarious, i didnt get irritatted when he cut them off at all, maybe its because i prefer cam to rob, but anyways it was cute. get over it. People shouldnt sweat the small things they cant control

    Comment by Carmen — September 8, 2008 @ 1:39 am

  26. I WAIT 4 HOURS TO SEE THE TWILIGHT CAST AND THEY GET LESS THEN 3O SECONDS ON AIR AND THEN ROBERT GETS F***** BY THAT A****E host!! But i have to agree it was kinda funny haha and even with the Twilight cast in it, the VMA’s sucked BAD! That’s all I’m saying.

  28. I agree with all of the above. It was highly anticipated and promoted and the Twilight Stars didn’t get much respect at all. alos, How could you seriously cut off Rob? I mean, in any gerenal case, let them all get a word in please? after all they were all there for a reason. I know if i was there and on stage i’d want a little word in eh? And if it was Robs job to annouce then who are you to take over???? Thank you Russel.

    Comment by Laura — September 8, 2008 @ 1:43 am

  29. I AM SOOOOO PISSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i couldnt watch it live and now i got to watch it, and they got CUT OFF??!!!!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! WTF??!!?!?!?!?! i was looking foward to this ALL DAY and this is what i get?! That was the only reason i watched the VMAS and it was totally disapointing!!

    Comment by Jillian — September 8, 2008 @ 1:45 am

  30. I ONLY suffered the show to watch Rob Pattinson. The show was seriously nuts for insulting him like that. I’m fuming.

    Comment by Jen — September 8, 2008 @ 1:47 am

  31. the only reason i was watching the vma’s were two reasons and those were the two british celebrities: russell and robert. now i love russell, but seriously i wanted to slap the man for not letting robert finish. i was all happy when he introduced twilight and how robert was gonna present “Paramore” but then i was all NOOO russell!!!! why why??

    Comment by priscilla — September 8, 2008 @ 1:49 am

  32. the ONLY reason i watched that God awful show tonight was BECAUSE they said the Twilight cast would be presenting something. and i waited and watched, and that Russel guy, who by the way, i had no idea who that dude was until tonight…cuts him off…effed up!

    all that promotion for the movie then cut off the damn star in the middle of what he was saying?! AND steal his line?! moron.

    Comment by cassey vee — September 8, 2008 @ 1:50 am

  33. what the hell!!! I waited all night to see rob, and that ass went and cut him off! He’s just soo jealous of rob that he had to try to steal his spotlight! Get a life russel “brown”

    Comment by anna maria — September 8, 2008 @ 1:54 am

  34. i was so pissed off i cant believe they cut them off. i dont even think russel was suppose to be standing there with them. im so mad i bet rob is pissed off to i know i would be. fuck mtv the only reason i tuned in was to see the twilight cast and they cut them off. X(

    Comment by laura — September 8, 2008 @ 1:54 am

  35. I only tuned in for that twilight bit at the VMAs. MTV planned poorly, too many cast members saying too many words, and having them walk in took up a lot of their air-time. No harm done by RB knowing they wouldn’t make time, He’s the host people, it’s his domain, and his only job is to keep things moving.

    But too bad I didn’t get to hear Rob, but at least they get into the post parties.

    Otherwise, another disappointing VMAs, neither RB nor the twilight cast could’ve saved.

    Comment by Aarin — September 8, 2008 @ 2:00 am

  37. The VMA’s were so many shades of awful.

    FIRST, they don’t do sh*t with them on the Pre Show, no interviews, nothing. NEXT, Russell Brand (whos BRITISH) has the audacity to tell Americans who they should vote for, and then disses the president & the presidential candidates! And gushes about the JoBros while he’s at it.(plus he’s wearing way too tight pants) THEN, they shove the Twi-cast in like, the aisle. NEXT, Taylor talks for-freaking-ever, and when finally it’s Rob’s turn (the thing everyone cares about) Brand cuts him off not one-but THREE times.

    FAIL, MTV. FAIL, Russell Brand.

    No one cuts off Robert Pattinson unless they want hell.

    Comment by Natasha — September 8, 2008 @ 2:00 am

  38. GRRR
    there was no excuse what so ever for that
    i just was soo aggravated and cam was such a gentleman pushing rob in the front with him it was very nice and i could feel the chemistry between the cast but then Russell came and i was urggggg
    i cant type im just really mad so
    but i will try not to hold this against Russell but he was rude and shouldn’t have cut him off. but even though it is taking every once in me i am going to try not to hold this against Russell.

    Comment by Silva — September 8, 2008 @ 2:01 am

  39. Im PISSED!!! Poor Rob, he already doesnt like to go to gatherings like this and now i understand. The stupid Host didn’t even let him get 3 words in!!! Im MORRREEEE that PISSED

    Comment by Tori — September 8, 2008 @ 2:02 am

  40. Russell Brand is a filthy piece of TRASH! MTV sucks. Complete waste of time. The only reason most of us watched was the promise of The cast of twilight introducing, and obviously that was just a little to complicated for MTV to pull off. What a Failure. Now we can all go back to saying richard who??? I vow to boycott MTV unless they Air a public apology to the viewers of the VMAs for the tastless comments of Brand and I encourage everyone else to do the same! Thanks Geeks of Doom for allowing Twilighters a place to vent!

    Comment by Tiger lily — September 8, 2008 @ 2:06 am

  41. I’m very disappointed that I stayed up to watched the VMAs. Sure, they had some good performances, but the host seriously bugged the crap out of me. I hated all of his political talk and how he degraded abstinence (Which I am glad Jordin Sparks said something about, because I was nearly going to kill him.) Most of all, I hated that the only reason I watched the VMAs was to see Robert Pattinson, and then he gets cut off. That was seriously my last straw with that Russell Brand. I hope he watches his back.

    Comment by Olivia — September 8, 2008 @ 2:20 am

  47. Okay…well… the VMA’s completely blew my mind, in the worst possible way. The ‘host’, Russell whats-his-name, was a complete a-hole, which just the whole night horrible. Obnoxious little snot had so many comments that made me want to knock his head off his shoulders. And I can’t believe he had the nerve to interrupt Robert (THE ACTUAL PRESENTER OR HE SUPPOSSED TO BE ANY WAY)! The were only a few things I actually enjoyed about the VMA’s (Paramore, Pink, and Christina Aguilers) but then those were still overshadowed by the obnoxious host.
    So disappointed…

    Comment by Liz — September 8, 2008 @ 2:27 am

  48. Russell Brand was so rude! where is his common courtesy? Even if you don’t like Twilight you must agree that cutting off an actor who had been invited to speak is both incredibly rude and very unproffessional. Russell should go and get a haircut and brush up his manners a bit while hes at it.

    Comment by Sophie — September 8, 2008 @ 2:33 am

  49. Omg, I was SO looking forward to seeing the cast there, I was all excited. I know they were just announcing Paramore, and they wouldn’t be on long, but they hardly got a word in. I was exicited to see Robert, and he didn’t get to say all that he was going to say, cause Russel cut him off. I was so mad about that.

    I can’t stand Russel Brand. He annoyed me throughout the whole show.

  51. I am feeling significantly less intelligent after watching the MTV MVA’s, my head hurts, but as the Twilight cast looked great I am happy-ish. I am not happy however that Rob was cut off rudely, or that they squished them all into the tiny aisle and expected them to all fit. I think that Brand dude has no idea the hornets nest he upset, not just with the Twilight fans but with everyone with his comments at the beginning. British humor does not offend me, what Brand was saying, did. MTV gives us Twilight Tuesday(yay!)…then gives us this award show(ouch)…what a painful difference.

    Of course, the VMA’s were not about Twilight this is true, (though MTV’s hype of the cast presenting might suggest otherwise) but if one were to remove the Twilight aspect the award show still would have been horribly bad. It seemed very poorly organized and a logistical nightmare.(Can you say, teleprompters visible in mirrors behind presenters?)I shall not even get into the music… The choice of host was also poor. Yes I know its MTV and they are known for wild hosts but generally not such insulting ones with jokes aimed at a demographic that generally does NOT watch these shows all the while insulting the idols of the demographic that does.

  56. The VMA’s were a disappointment. They got us Twilight fans all excited about the cast being there but they didn’t really live up to the hype. The pre-show had no Twilight. When they did get on stage to present it was like 2 minutes and Rob got cut off and I only watched the show to see the cast and i really wanted to hear Rob speak.

    Comment by LaceyT. — September 8, 2008 @ 3:05 am

  57. Ok, you need all need to calm the hell down. You are making fools of yourselves and you need to spend your pocket money on some well spent sense of humor. I love Russel Brand.

    You obviously don’t know the intensity of one second’s worth at a live show, not to mention a MEGA live show. You have to be quick, and ready to cover up a dull moment, second, or pause. That’s probably what Russel was doing, Rob possibly took long to speak, it’s okay, the shiny lights and weird faces do pose a threatening image, Rob. And what exactly are you so ruffled about? He cut him off of what have been 4 WORDS. “and the nominees are…”

    are you serious? there is literally about two hours worth of interviews with Rob, on YOUTUBE. calm the hell down, breathe, and learn to broaden your sense of humor.

    his hair looks like it got caught in the blowdryer.
    hell the only thing he has going for him is he’s english – LIKE ROBERT!

    they should have just had robert host the whole show, cause the two words that he managed to get out before nutcase brand over there cut him off with his one-person conversation, were the sexiest words heck the sexiest thing of the whole show.

    screw it, give me robert pattinson for 2hrs straight and it’s the best saturday night spent.. mind you, there isn’t much that isn’t better than ruffled brand up there on stage. UGH!

    epic fail MTV. bring me more pattinson!!

  66. I found Russel Brand to be somewhat amusing, at the very least different. Though he did make a few inappropriate comments, it’s live T.V. and MTV at that…what do you expect? I too was just trying to get through it to see my Edward and the rest of the Twilight cast. So, naturally I was extremely disappointed when they got like 3 seconds of air time AND Robert Pattinson got cut off. What the hell was that? I expected a little more from MTV though why, I dont know.

    Comment by fini — September 8, 2008 @ 3:57 am

  67. OMG! Not only did MTV use the fact that Twilight has such a strong following to promote their very poorly made VMAs this year, but they didn’t even give the actors the importance they disserve. They were the only ones that didn’t get a chance to present on the elaborate stage like all the other celebrities. Instead, they had to cramp up in a small area and Rob got interrupted! What the heck!

    Comment by Evelyn — September 8, 2008 @ 4:14 am

  68. I am so pissed off. I was like, omg, omg, he’s gonna say something, and there he goes, that airhead of a host, interrupting freaking Robert Pattinson, aka edward cullen, aka Rpattz, aka spunk ransom. I just wanted to choke him and then cut off his Amy Winehouse hair!!!!

    Gosh, Russell Brand should leave America before all the twilighters and the jonas brothers fans too get to him, seriously. Russell, watch your back. just warning you about the rage you have unleashed. hehehehe

  69. russell brand will be ruined by many fangirls of twilight. lol

    Comment by rini — September 8, 2008 @ 4:58 am

  70. I think it was rather rude of the host to interfere like that. Rob only got 2 words in! Come on! That’s part of the reason why I never watch MTV awards anymore. It’s just getting tacky and really boring.

    I wanted to hear more Robert!!!

  73. What the heck was that?! I watched the whole freakin’ preshow, and for what?! NOTHING!? I didn’t take my eyes off the actual show, and I only saw one Twilight cast member. And that’s because Taylor was behind Katy Perry! Then when the time actually came for them to be the in the spotlight, they let Taylor say the whole freakin’ thing, (I do love Taylor, though), then when Rob got to talk Russell Brand cut him off?! Who the crap is he anyway?! NO ONE cuts off the Spunk.

    Comment by Caylie — September 8, 2008 @ 5:58 am

  74. I can’t even believe he cut him off like that. What the hell?! I’m glad I didn’t stay up to watch it!

    Comment by Jenny — September 8, 2008 @ 6:03 am

  75. Taylor has the voice of a young girl. Seriously awkward for New Moon.

    Really rude to treat Pattinson that way. MTV owe him big time. I only watched to see his gorgeous face. That kid Taylor is such a pushy little kid. Gets right up my nose.

    Comment by ali — September 8, 2008 @ 6:03 am

  76. The show was a shambolic mess. Brand took up all of Rob’s time. Not cool and not clever. So many of us were only tuning in to see Rob so I feel cheated.

  79. I was SO pissed off!! i watched the fricken VMAs MOSTLY because I knew tht the Twilight cast was going to be on . Of course, they didn’t let poor Rob even get like 3 words in . How disrespectful can you be when you’re a host ? I mean, come on! I was so looking forward to hearing Rob after everyone else talked(I was freaking out when they all came on) and then we don’t even get to hear his amazing British voice =[ ha Russell Brand’s gonna like, get killed by Twilighters from wht I’m seeing all over the message boards and such .
    we’re nothing to mess with .

    but my brother wamted to shot him so bad…
    which isnt nice
    but hey!
    what he did do spunk ransom(aka pattinson)

  82. I was so pissed off that Russell Brand just cut Robert off!! He just totally ruined my mood throughout the whole show. I couldn’t stand him man. After that i couldn’t even enjoy my favorite rock band Paramore’s performance. And how he makes fun of the Jonas Brothers?! >=( NOT COOL!! Mostly all his jokes are like sex and stuff. He’s soo perverted!!

    Comment by March — September 8, 2008 @ 7:00 am

  83. I am so glad I didn’t subject myself to watching. I knew that all the Twilight stuff would be posted online first thing this morning. Edward or Bella might be able to sacrifice themselves to watching the VMA’s, but not me!!!! MTV was my entire life in the early eighties, but it’s nothing but crap now.

    Comment by Joanne Maria — September 8, 2008 @ 7:15 am

  85. this was so bad. i stayed up way late on a school night just to hear robs voice, and that jerk of a host cut him off!! i swear, i wanted to jump into the tv and slap the guy!! after an almost unbarable hour of that guy *shudders* i was looking forward to some relief, and i didn’t even get it. duh. robert looked so good (love you rob!), the least you could do was let him talk!
    in my book, this was like cutting edward off, and you do NOT do that. ever.
    mtv, you owe rob AND you owe the twilight fandom. big time. twilight tuesday better be freaking awesome.

    Comment by urcoolcarrie — September 8, 2008 @ 7:25 am

  86. what also pissed me off, was how they were advertising it and then they were only on for what? 5 seconds? that was really dumb. if they are going to put robert pattinson on tv, he needs more lines and more time, because he is too great to be cut off like that.

    and Natasha, i agree with you 400%
    they failed.

  88. Jeez, you Americans don’t get Russell Brand obviously.

    Now I’m a Twilighter, I love and adore Robert Pattinson, but Russell Brand could cut off the Queen herself and nobody would be surprised. Yeah it sucks that the cast didn’t get more airtime but we’re making Twilight fans look like the biggest bunch of psycho whiners ever these days, freaking out over every little thing. I would have loved if Kristen and Robert presented the whole bloody show, but let’s all relax, because when the movie opens, everyone is going to know what a big deal they are.

    Comment by Karrie — September 8, 2008 @ 7:50 am

  89. Haha.. I was sooo pissed that I didnt get to hear Robert sexxiness within the voice!
    Seriosuly! For all the people Brand would cut off! He would cutt off the one who is playing the one and only Edward Cullen!
    They better make a kick@$$ Twilight Tuesday to make up for this..

    Poor Edbert! I love him! EPIC FAIL!
    *Sigh* Russell Brand.. oh Russell Brand.. WHY! WHY!

    Comment by Danica — September 8, 2008 @ 7:52 am

  90. There was absolutely no respect given to the Twilight cast. It was as if they were just there to say they were there. Twilighters around the world are pissed!

    Comment by Christine — September 8, 2008 @ 7:57 am

  91. WTF??!!

    I didn’t like Russell Brand before and now I hate him.

    Nobody cuts off Ransom! NOBODY!!

    Comment by Christine — September 8, 2008 @ 7:59 am

  92. Yeah, that is the only reason why I watched the VMAs. I was so shocked and pissed at the same time. That obnoxious host was so rude to Rob. You just don’t do that to people, especially our Rob. I hope he catches hell for what he did and never hosts anything again in America.

    Comment by Kim — September 8, 2008 @ 8:00 am

  93. I remember watching it and thinking as Rob was cut off, “Holy crap, people are NOT going to be happy about this.” I myself was beyond furious. And I was right.
    Half of the people who tuned into the VMA’s, only tuned in to see the Twilight cast. I like Russell Brand a lot… but MTV is seriously going to feel the wrath from the twilight fans.

    Comment by Beth — September 8, 2008 @ 8:01 am

  94. EPIC FAIL!!!!!
    I stayed up until 3 am!!!! 3 AM, PEOPLE!!!! Just to watch it live!!!! I was tired. Plus, Romeo and Juliet was airing on another chanel, and I didn’t see it (I’ve never seen it) because I wanted to see the VMA’s! And then they present us this???? SHAME, MTV!!! SHAME ON YOU ALL!!!!

    Oh, and by the way, the show sucked. The only thing that saved it was Linkin Park’s line about Transformers and Pink’s performance. At least that’s what I think, I waited for Pink to perform so that I could go to bed and curse MTV.

    And I did. So stick that in your juice box and suck it!

    Comment by Filipamd — September 8, 2008 @ 8:02 am

  95. Um hello?! Does Russell not have enough to say as host that he has to interrupt the presenters to get even more annoying words in? The only reason I tuned in was to see the Twilight cast *cough*ROBERT*cough* and the poor gorgeous angel couldn’t even speak. How freakin’ RUDE!

    Comment by kalejay — September 8, 2008 @ 8:04 am

  96. Yeah, I had the same reaction as you guys did…pissed off!!! And it confused me even more because for Russell to cut off a fellow Brit? Wow. That was the whole reason I watched the VMAs, was to see the cast. It was a pleasant surprise to see Cam, cause I didn’t realize he would be appearing. But to cut off Rob? Yeah, my daughters and I were pretty pissed off!

    Comment by Hanako — September 8, 2008 @ 8:09 am

  97. I thought Russell brand was vulgar and obcene .I watched true blood but taped the VMAS just for the twilight cast .. I went back and watched it and was what ? he is rude to have done that to Spunk … the only other highlight of the show besides seeing the twilight cast was Kid rock.. I just hope MTV gets a different host for next year because that guy was a moron

    Comment by Cheryl — September 8, 2008 @ 8:12 am

  98. ok, so as much as i love the mc, Russel Brand, WTH!?
    he cut off Rob!! :| I was SO not happy about that.
    But i have to say this- omg! they were all looking SOO cute!
    Taylor the most i must say. But Rob,Kristen&Cam were all up there.
    But seriously, this guy should NOT have cut Spunk Ransom, You just dont do something,like that. Not to someone with the name of Robert Pattinson.
    twilight=Love ( L )

    Comment by Ali — September 8, 2008 @ 8:28 am

  101. I didn’t mind Russell Brand, because the show would have been completely boring without him, but to interrupt Rob was just stupid. The whole point was for them to introduce the act. Why was he even there? I know someone said they were taking to long, but Brand just made the intro longer. All Rob had to say was “Please welcome Paramore”.

    Comment by AJ — September 8, 2008 @ 8:42 am

  102. Uh. Honestly, I thought it was effing hilarious. I don’t think the VMA’s were particularly bad, or worse than previous years. I mean, I didn’t really have an opinion of them, other than I thought Russell Brand pretty much made the show.
    And then the Twiligh cast came out after an hour, and Rob doesn’t even get his line. Oh my God. I just laughed. That was hilarious.
    And Russell was just going on about how nothing is as it seems or some shit, I don’t even know, but it was funny as hell.
    I don’t think people need to attack Russell, or MTV just because Rob didn’t say his stupid line, or whatever. At least he was there. Ish. He probably didn’t even want to say it, anyway.
    Eh. Whatever. No need to be so butt-hurt, people. It’s MTV, for crying out loud.

    Comment by bella94 — September 8, 2008 @ 9:25 am

  104. I almost peed myself with excitement at the news we would be seeing our beloved Twilight cast only to feel like throwing up on Russell Brand for his antics. Pipe down mr. brand you have the ENTIRE show to talk! The cast looked really uncomfortable and shoved in a tiny space only to have russell breathing down their necks. It looked terrible and I wanted to hear that beautiful voice that belongs to Robert…..I guess I could just go rewatch all of the Twilight Tuesday clips MTV has successfully provided us and be happy….but still what a let down.

    Comment by Joyce — September 8, 2008 @ 9:35 am

  105. i cant believe he cut him off!

    Comment by bc — September 8, 2008 @ 9:36 am

  106. i was very unhappy…

    i though that they will present, with everyone talking and the russel didn´t let robert say his part!!
    i think that russel is very hilarious and did a great job on the show but when he cut robert i was soooooo angry!!!
    i even thought they will apear on te pre-show…but nothing..i was very disappointed..
    and i think that because they were four (plus the russel that was not supoosed to) someone should have considered giving them a larger space… first just some of them were in front of the camera…but then cam put robert on his side…

    not a bad shiw but i´ve seen better to be true…

    Comment by Maria — September 8, 2008 @ 10:05 am

  107. I get why the fandom is pissed off
    but guys, come on! i’m a twilighter as well, but I
    think that everyone needs to tone it down a bit! It was
    incredibly rude and such. However, Russell is a quirky person
    and it’s part of his “act” to be that way. I live in Europe and we
    see him a lot more here. So i’m used to him. Plus Twilight is not
    exactly known to all groups of people who watch MTV. My initial reaction
    was to be mad as well, but Rob took in graciously. So unless he complains…why
    should we?

    Comment by Caitlin — September 8, 2008 @ 10:21 am

  108. I am with mostly everyone. the only reason i watched was because i heard the cast was going to be on. I bet half the viewers they got this year were just watching for them and as soon as they were gone people shut it off. i know that was what i did. and russell brand…. really? A. does anyone really know who he is and B. I heard he got kicked off MTV in the uk because after 9/11 he decided to dress like osama bin laden. how could they choose him. Oh and i happen to love the jonas brothers he annoyed me about them too. but he really pissed me off when he had to interrupt Spunk Ransom. Really dude? you are like the host for the rest of the freakin show… let them talk for like a freakin minute!!!

    Comment by Sammie — September 8, 2008 @ 10:22 am

  109. First of all no one even knew who the hell this dude was! I thought most of his comments were rude as hell the entire night and when he just cut my boy off like that, I fumed about it for a while and then disgusted just turned the TV off. Rude as hell!! :(

    Comment by Jenn — September 8, 2008 @ 10:42 am

  110. Russell Brand He was totally jealous……
    Robert has a lot of class, so he’ll take it graciously. I am a pissed RUSSELL BRAND YOU are ugly need to put a weedeater to his rat nest hair.You Wished you looked half as good as Robert you turd. I hate just to see the “Twilight” cast treated poorly. Robert you had all the girls heart and Ladys just your smile makes me feel good all day.I have never even like to read and just because I saw you were going to be in the movie as Edward I started reading it read two books in 4 days and loved them just cause, I could see you as Edward .Starting the next one to Hope I don’t cry as much on it as I did the last one.LOTS OF LOVE ,Missy

    Comment by Missy — September 8, 2008 @ 10:53 am

  111. Honestly, the VMA’s have sucked for years, so this kind of thing doesn’t surprise me anymore. But, i will say, i actually enjoyed the host…i thought he was a comeplete bumbling idiot, and very funny. He ragged on any and everybody and didn’t care…ya know, the way comics should be. Anyways, the whole twilight cut off thing was just another part of it. I was cracking up at Rob’s expression when Brand cut him off and started babbling again about how ‘nothing is as it seems’ and then there was the whole mirror effect in the background, lol. Sure, it was cool to see the twilight cast on TV and promoting the movie…but c’mon people…this is the VMA’s…was anybody honestly expecting anything better? It’s just a show.

    Comment by Ducky — September 8, 2008 @ 10:54 am

  112. Wow…where did they find that loser host? OME, HE ROYALLY SUCKED! I usually don’t watch these programs because they are generally very poorly done. There was no mistake, Pattinson’s mike was not malfunctioning, the asshole host just didn’t want to concede to him! I’m so glad I didn’t bother to watch the show. That would have been a waste of good time.

    Comment by TwilightMom — September 8, 2008 @ 11:28 am

  113. I was so pissed after waiting through a painfully hideous ceremony only to NOT hear Rob speak??!!?? And then to have that annoying guy jump in there with his stupid rant- so terrible. It seemed like the whole show was a disaster…I mean, Demi Moore couldn’t even find her mike..she was fumbling around looking for it! UGH! I’m too old for MTV; I’ve got no patience for it anymore.

    The only redeeming factor was that at least I got to see them…they looked great! Can’t wait for the movie :)

    Comment by Jen — September 8, 2008 @ 11:30 am

  114. I’m sad:(
    I stay wake until 3 am to see the twilight cast, first i was trill, Cam was there too, then happens that thing to Robert, and I was, “what the hell just happen? They invite twilight cast and don’t let Robert talk, is the main character?”

    Comment by Shushan — September 8, 2008 @ 11:33 am

  115. I doubt RP cared honestly, he seemed to take it in stride and stuff. But seriously, who cared about their lines so much as RP’s hair? Did you see the hair, peole? I bow down to the pattinson hair, it’s fried freaking gold.

    Comment by lola — September 8, 2008 @ 11:35 am

  116. I can’t belive he cut rob off 3 F***ING times WHAT A SHIT!
    that who we all wanted to hear!
    he’s probably jealous of robz looks or somthing…=P
    but 3 TIMES!!

    Comment by Nikki — September 8, 2008 @ 11:43 am

  117. It pisses me off as well, i mean really MTV just got all of us hyped up over it so we would watch it and it would boost their ratings, and that’s not fair at all. We would have been completely happy if Robert would have just been able to say his line.
    That was probably the stupidest thing the host could have done all night. I personally didn’t watch it. but when I heard about it I was soo upset. and then when I saw I was PISSED. Why did he have to cut of Robert? why not that other guy, or even Kristen for that matter? but Robert who by the way looked gorgeous. The host better watch his back. haha. I imagine this isn’t gonna go down pretty.

    Comment by Amanda — September 8, 2008 @ 11:54 am

  118. I am just glad that I Dvr’d is that way I was able to fast forward through that Idot of a host that they had, he got on my nerves the little parts that I did hear him…..and then to make it worse the idiot cuts Robert off!!!! That was the only part I really wanted to watch….I don’t even watch MTV the only reason that I would have had I been home was for the Twilight on the awards….very frustrating….

    Comment by SEXYTWILIGHTGIRL — September 8, 2008 @ 12:27 pm

  120. like everyone else pretty much, the only reason i sat down to watch the vma’s was to see the twilight cast present. from russell brand’s first moments on stage i cringed. he’s hideous. he talked non-stop about things i wasn’t in the mood to hear – “politics” (if that’s what you’d call his slanted diatribe), rude crap about the jonas brothers, the list goes on and on. then when he talked over rob pattinson….that was the last straw. i shut the tv off soon after.
    worst vma host ever.

    Comment by rochelle — September 8, 2008 @ 12:27 pm

  121. omi gosh thank god i didnt stay up to watch it!!! man!!! twilight exploited wtf man?? damn it all… seriously… that really sucked.. the host was god awful.. and anyone who says otherwise can check it out .. its all over the internet he was the WORST HOST EVER !!! even on yahoo agrees.. so its not only a bunch of twilighters complaining… but outta all seriousness i thought they looked amazing…a little awkward but seriously this was their first time.. most of them have never done stuff like this before… i thought it was great.. and have you seen the pics of kristen and rob!! omi gosh cuteness.. and dont diss on jacob.. he doesnt sound like a chick.. he’s just a kid.. thats how they sound.. im sure by new moon he’ll pass puberty.. he’s working hard and expecting the movie… btw cant wait for the movie.. and this officially garantees i’ll never watch the vmas….. great job mtv.. way to fuck up again XD .. and whoever thought britney was awesome needs to get their head checked.. just cause she’s not bald anymore doesnt make her all better… she cant even hold her mic right… XD… twilight rules ^.^ hopefully we twilighters wont have to complain like this ever again…

  123. Its SO cut off and babble at the exact moment of Rob’s LITTLE SPEAK. Whats the hurry?!!! The poor actor only have three lines, for crying out lout!!! And I dont know if anyone noticed that even before he tries to put the microphone to say the lines, that genius(Hate him!) deliberately cuts him off. Rob Even tried to get back to it but the GIT just babbling some nonesense which nobody cares. Argh!

    Comment by TwitasticlyTwilight — September 8, 2008 @ 12:37 pm

  126. Just like everyone else, I WAS PISSED!!! Russell Brad is a duchbag! How dare he not let Rob talk. What a jackass! Everytime that Rob tried to talk stupid Russell Brand cut him off. I felt so bad for Rob and actually I felt bad for the WHOLE entire Twilight cast that attended. Why, you may ask? Well MTV made a HUGE deal about the Twilight cast being at the VMA’s and all they got to do was present one award (well some of them anyways) I mean there are hardly any pictures of the cast on the red carpet. What the hell? MTV SUCKS! Who the f**** IS the host anyways? I’ve never seen him anywhere. OME and if that wasn’t bad enough the freaking host was bagging on the Jonas Brothers to!!! I hate Russell!!! Who’s with me?! All in all I think MTV did a horrible job with the VMA’s, it was so poorly organized. For example, did you see how small the stage was that the Twilight cast was on. Robert had a tough time getting to the front until the aweseom Cam helped him. Well basically I hate MTV and the dooch of a host, Russell Brand.

  127. I waited all day to watch the VMA’s just so that i could see the Twilight cast and most of all Robert Pattinson, as they passed him the mic i sat up in my seat and tried to listen as close as possible but then he got CUT OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so pissed off that that stupid host cut him off!!! HELLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO who the hell is Russell Brand anyway?!?! he wasnt a good host at all! hes not funny and everytime he went on babbling i wanted him to shut up! to top it all off when he cut Rob off i wanted to jump in my television and punch him myself! and poor Rob tried to talk again and got cut off again! UGHHHHHHHHH im so pissed! Robert at the end kinda does a shoulder shrugg like ” yea i was suppose to say that sorry”but that Russell Brand guy aka sex addict cut him off! I must say this years VMA’s were very dissapointing it wasnt as entertaining as the past. i freaked when it said “cast of Twilight 6 minutes” but then within 7 minutes my mood did a complete 360 and turned to fury! :(

  130. I was pretty excited to see rob speak, but I thought Russell brand got funnier and funnier over the night makin fun of the joke that was the vma’s. Interupting pattison was just icing on the cake. I’d bet that brand did that just to mess with all the twilight fans, and we really need to laugh at ourselves a little. I’m with all of you about getting excited, but it’s really funny when you think about it. I laughed for about a half an hour. PS- I loved the king of the twilighters comment.

  131. yhea this sucks! i love twilight and i was so excited seeing this and then that frckikn russel guy cut off ROB” the *AMAzing rob! like whats ur prob??? yhea i dont need to say any ,more all the other comments explains how i feel! but ROB IS SO GORGEOUS!

    Comment by Masily — September 8, 2008 @ 1:25 pm

  132. I was mega pissed when Rob only got to say 2 freakin words and then was rudely cut off by that jerk off. I pretty much only watched the dang vma’s to see Pattinson and barely got to hear or see him! and omg, the vma’s were poorly done, and the host sucked so bad. He just wasn’t funny at all even tho he was trying to be soo hard.

    Comment by Savanah — September 8, 2008 @ 1:36 pm

  133. I have a few things to say about it:
    1.) When they first came out, it looked like Kristen had to hold onto Taylor’s shoulder in order to stay balanced. I love that, because it makes her look like a klutz…like Bella.
    2.) Kristen’s dress…um? Okay, before you guys go crazy on me, I was a fan of Kristen when I saw Speak. So, don’t say I am not a true fan. I love her, but her dress (stretched sweater?) was horrifying. I think it out did her black look for the MTV Movie Awards. Come on Kristen, you’re beatiful. Get more flatering clothes.
    3.) Taylor was amazing. He just seems like such a sweet guy. I love him.
    4.) Okay, they give the Twilight cast a performance to introduce instead of an award? I think thats so dumb. Then, they only give them about a minute and they cut Rob off. Now, I am Team Jacob but respect the man. He may just rip you throat out, Russell.
    Thank you for letting me vent.

  134. I can’t believe I stayed up to watch this show. The host was terrible and rude to everyone. But then to cut off Rob 3 times was the worst. I’m sure he will take it in stride but who was this host to think he could just jump in and cut off the presenters? Why even have presenters and make a big deal about having the Twilight cast there if you don’t get to hear them? Why didn’t we see them before the show? I’m sure there were plenty of fans who only sat through the awful music to see them and were disappointed like me and shut it off after.

    Comment by Lauren — September 8, 2008 @ 2:04 pm

  135. I can’t stand the MTV Awards shows. Nothing but trash! But I really wanted to see the Twilight stars, so I taped the show so I could fast forward to the only reason for watching. I think it’s pretty obvious thgat Russell Brand purposely cut Rob off because he is so jealous of Rob’s popularity. Sad, very sad… I’m thoroughly disgusted with MTV for hyping the fact that the Twilight cast members would be presenting and then treat them like garbage. Maybe Kristen had come out half dressed and the Twi-Guys had come out shirtless with their pants hanging below their butts MTV would have shown them more respect. What a crock!

    Comment by Lisa G — September 8, 2008 @ 2:07 pm

  136. Whoops. In my fury I missed a word. It should have said:
    “Maybe IF Kristen had come out half dressed and the Twi-Guys had come out shirtless with their pants hanging below their butts MTV would have shown them more respect.

    Comment by Lisa G — September 8, 2008 @ 2:09 pm

  137. Okay people, it’s the VMA’s not the Oscars. People are going to be rude to EVERYONE. The host is supposed to be funny and crude. I personally thought he did a phenomenal job. He’s not well known and he wanted to get his name out there. As for the ‘mistreating’ of the Twilight cast, these things happen. It was a little screw up, that’s all. They each had one line to say, Brand thought something was funny so he commented on it. If you paid any attention at all to him, you’d know that he did it a lot through the show; it’s not a bash on Rob. Live shows will have their screw ups. Calm down.

    Comment by Brianna — September 8, 2008 @ 2:19 pm

  138. Yes, Russell Brand was very rude in cutting off Rob like that, but being a guy, I must admit that Kristen was the one I really wanted to see and hear and even she didn’t get very much time.

  139. okay wtf MTV….this show was supposed to be the best one yet so much hype about it b/c it was the 25th anniversary or w/e…yeah russell was kinda funny at the beginning but then he got really annoying with the whole purity ring issue..yeah i admit im a big fan of the jonas brothers and i was annoyed but thats a whole different story…then britney..that was totally can she beat out tokio katy perry and all the other grat artists and win ALL 3 awards when she;s never won ONE before…then it was he rpattz friend and i counted the down the 6 minutes from the commercial break and screamed when they were introduced..we were really excited to see all 4 of them..i wanted to hear rob more than the others and when it was finally his turn he got in 2 cents…wat was that think that b/c he’s british too another compadre he’d let him speak and blab over the others but he didn;t..idk wat that was about but it blew!!

I cant beleive ROB got cut off….i waited all day to watch the VMA’s just to see the twilight cast and I sat there patiently listening to that dumb fuck that they call host bash on the Jonas Brothers which was completely unacceptable…To see that at the end Robert gets cut off by Brand….what a rude Muthafucker….he didn’t cut nobody off except for Rob…he didnt even take over when Paris Hilton came out and Fucked up!!! I DID NOT LIKE THE VMAS THEY SSSSUUUCCCKKKKEEEDDDD!!!!!!!!!

  142. I was sooo ticked off that they did that. Not even because they promoted it so much. The host was pissing everyone off! First he’s constantly insulting The JoBros(BAD CHOICE DUDE!) and I’m not a huge fan of theirs but geez whats wrong with noting being a man whore your teenage life…gosh! that guy was ridiculous! and then like for someone who no one knew who the hell they were, he shouldve shut uP!! then he reallyyyyy made me mad when he was like talking the whole time the twilight cast was up and even robert was like..WTFreak! I most definately could not wait to hear a hott british accent..unfortunately we got an idiotic, disgusting british accent talking about nothing important!

    Comment by Tania — September 8, 2008 @ 3:07 pm

  149. I only watched it to see the Twilight Cast. Russell Brand was awful and the political stuff (I won’t call it humor) was way out of line. I also didn’t like the Jonas Brothers jokes. Good for them, they have morals and should be commended, not made fun of. I don’t think they were very happy about the digs.

    I know Rob didn’t care, but the fans are up in arms.

  151. MTV really dropped the ball on the host this year. Not only did he decide to share with everyone who we should vote for, he also made fun of America and Americans alike. Great job MTV. ………………….Secondly, the VMA’s are watched by younger audiences, and perhaps Brand should have thought of that before proclaiming sex, even at the Jonas’ brothers age, is better than waiting. With all the teen pregnancy going around? Another stellar job……………………………………… And FINALLY, as a host of an MTV event, with MTV FALLING ALL OVER THEMSELVES about Twilight, you’d think the host would RESPECT the amount of time the Twilight cast was on for. Maybe even LISTEN a little bit, instead of interrupting ROBERT PATTINSON, when half of the VMA home audience tuned in for HIM…not for the below-par show we received. What a joke.

    Comment by blearyeyedmesgirl — September 8, 2008 @ 3:37 pm

  152. I was quite annoyed. If MTV hadn’t made such a big deal of the twilight cast appearing, I don’t think most fans would have gotten upset. But to shout from the rooftops “Twilight cast will be presenting! Twilight cast will be presenting!” and then stick them in some aisle, give them one line apiece, and to cut off the lead actor and not let him finish his line? That’s just rude. Twilighters were waiting for this moment, and Russell Brand couldn’t keep his obnoxious mouth shut for 2 minutes!

More will come and this moron comes in and steals Rob’s lines! D: I was just like ohmygosh. Are you effing kidding me?! Like Russel? Is that who that guy is? Who cares! I WANTED TO HEAR ROB! NOT RUSS! ROBBBBBB! D:

EXPECIALLY EDWARD!!! :) SO The only reason I watched the VMA’s was because of Rob, Kristen, and Taylor. I am a Twilighter and I am mad!!

    Comment by Jordan — September 8, 2008 @ 3:55 pm

  155. I have to admit that i was pretty angry that Russel cut Robert off… I mean, i think that it was pretty unnecessary. It wasn’t even like they had to speed things up, because Russel was just babbling for thirty seconds. You could tell from Rob’s face that he was pretty confused and not sure what to do. The other three did fantastic, though! It was nice seeing the four of them all together.

    Comment by Noelle — September 8, 2008 @ 3:59 pm

  156. when i heard him start talking about twilight, as soon as they all started walking on the stage i screamed my lungs out. when russel brand cut pattinson off, i flippedddd shit. i love pattinson, and that was one of the reasons i watched it because i heard that pattinson, stweart, lautner and gigante were going to be on it, and to see that he cut him off was very rude.

Man, everyone on IMDb was ready to cut that fucker for doing that, seriously.
    I mean, yeah sure, he was pretty funny, but still..

    also,i think it was a pretty big deal for russel to present in front of all these MILLIONS of people who dont know him and dont UNDERSTAND his humour.took guts. over in the uk and beyond he IS funny AND respected. ROB IS FROM THE UK remember?! dont put up this ‘go back to the UK’ shit.. just cus hes not the kind of ‘funny’ your all used to. and GET OVER IT. how much u wana bet rob has?!

    Comment by pusanisamaze — September 8, 2008 @ 6:15 pm

  176. my best friend and i reserved the entire evening for the VMAs, hoping to see some twilight loveliness.
    we turned when red carpet started, and we waited for AN HOUR to not even get a freakin’ glimpse of the cast!
    we began to watch the show, anticipating the moment our faves would come onto the stage.
    while waiting, we had to listen to brand spew political garbage about candidates, the candidate’s FAMILIES, etc. which is ridiculous because THIS ISN’T EVEN HIS COUNTRY!!!
    then, as the people we were actually waiting for, were finally introduced we started screaming and getting unbelievably excited.
    but then we noticed brand was in the background still, annoyingly so.
    then the sht hit the fan.
    brand interruppted ROB!
    i was so appalled and dissapointed!
    i’ve never seen that happen in VMA history.
    and for it to happen to them was so wrong!

    i feel so awful for the cast because they were treated so poorly.
    they didn’t even get to stand on stage, they were given a freakin’ AISLE!
    after that, i just wanted to give them all a hug.
    it was ridiculous and it shouldn’t have happened.

  177. Ookay, well I have nothing against MTV or Russel Brand for that matter.
    In fact I really enjoy his sense of humour and his original personality and sense of style…..

    But COME ON!! Didn’t someone from MTV brief him on this? I do think that what he did was majorly rude but come on now, someone should have warned him.
    And all this after MTV hyped their appearance just have them present for a band (dont get me wrong, I love Paramore) for like 30 seconds or something. At least the rest of them each got to say something……but poor Rob! I felt so annoyed and embarrassed and annoyed for him.

    GaH! Im ranting, but MTV is gonna have to do some major damage control on this….I’m not angry I just kinda dissapointed. *sigh*

    Comment by Farah — September 8, 2008 @ 6:22 pm

  178. I wasted about two hours off my life on that crappy show, and what do i get? About two seconds of what i wanted to see. Brand needs to learn some matters, and fast. He is an asshole, and not just because he cut Robert off, right when that show started he took a shot at our politics, which was uncalled for. Brand thought he was better than everyone, well let me let you in on a little secret Brand, most people here dont know who you are, and do not care who you are. I didnt watch the show to see your stupid face, or hear your degrading comments, i watched for the cast of Twilight!!! MTV makes a big deal about the cast so they would get better ratings. Well MTV you got what you wanted, more viewers, but i also think you lost alot of respect. I understand that the show was not about Twilight, but i do expect what was promised, and that was that the CAST would present an award, not brand. You shove the MOST ANTICIPATED movie of the year to the back, while people who shouldnt even be there get the spotlight. Do not promise us something and than not show it!! I have never much cared for MTV, and this put the nail in the coffin.

    Comment by Ashley — September 8, 2008 @ 6:30 pm

  180. MTV made us all think that Twilight would at least be presenting an award. All they were doing was introducing an act! I did NOT like the host at all. He was just plain out rude. First off.. he was funny about his wild look. I loved his look. But then the brit started talking about American politics.. and hes not even voting! Calling our president a retarded cowboy?? I am not saying that im all for bush… but i still believe he shouldnt be called a retarded cowboy on live tv. He also talked about how the jonas brothers shouldnt keep their virtue. Im glad Jordan Sparks said something. This is what irritated me the most. He was basically telling everyone to go off and have sex.. no matter what the age.
    I wasnt that upset about him cutting Rob off… yet somewhere in the back of my mind… i think he wanted to upstage him because they were both British. Rob handled it well at least.
    Then also Russell started talking about all this sexual stuff.. and that was a big time for people to tune him out. People dont want to hear about that stuff.
    The performances were not the best.. but i kept wanting that lil waynes guys pants to fall down.. REALLY BADLY. or someone from the audiance to go and pants him. how funny would THAT have been?

    MTV, you did a very poor job.

    END NOTE: Brand’s ” everything isn’t what it seems” theme for the 2008 Mtv VMAs… about the only truth to this years show….Mtv and their VMAs have lost appeal and decency… the illusion of MTVs “coolness” is nothing but that…..get ready MTV……this pissed ALOT of ppl off……

  194. i already hated that russel dude BEFORE he cut Rob off but now i hate him sooooo much more…that made me so mad…i suffered through the VMA’s just to see Twilight and the dumb host cut them off…he sucks…and at the end Rob looked sooo mad.

  196. That’s crap. I didn’t get to see the VMA’s last night and wondered how it went. Now I log on and find out that that stupid man interrupted ROB. What a crock!

  197. I waited for the boys of Twilight and they cut them, was horrible!!!!

    Comment by Alynad — September 8, 2008 @ 9:09 pm

  198. I’m glad everybody is hating on Russell Brand, continue the good job. His hair drags so much attention I just want to rip it off.
    I want an encore from Robert Pattinson!

    Comment by Monica — September 8, 2008 @ 9:19 pm

  199. The minute that happened I immediately texted my friends. I was SO PISSED! The only reason I watched the freaking show was so that I could see the Twilight cast, and Russell Brand had to freaking ruin it. Why couldn’t he just leave the stage like he did for all the other presenters? Seriously, he needs to GET OVER HIMSELF. I mean, no one over here even knows who he is and probably half the people who watched the show were only watched it to see the cast (we are a rather large fanbase) and he freaking ruined it. The only thing he actually did well was trash his chances at ever being respected in the U.S.

    Comment by Julie — September 8, 2008 @ 9:19 pm

  200. WHAT! You cannot cut Rob off! He was just saying it and then all of a sudden the host just cuts him off… ugh! I’m mean, the only reason I watched it was for the Twilight stars *cough_rob_cough* and He barely says two words! That’s completely unfair. I don’t care if his mic wasn’t working, wait till it does, I don’t care. I just wanted to hear at least Rob talk more than that!

    Comment by Cammywamy — September 8, 2008 @ 9:30 pm

  201. That complete idiot cut off Robert Pattinson!!! i was all saturday wating for this shit and then that russell whatever (cuz no one knows who is this man that suddenly appeared from nowhere!)do this to Rob!!!& i’d bet he is gay, and did anyone noticed that this guy was copying Jonny Deep??? when this stranger cut Rob i was like ”WHAT???, HOW COULD HE???!!! HE DID’NT LET ROB TALK WITH HIS PERFECT BEAUTIFUL GORGEOUS VAMPIRISTIC VOICE!!! HATE HIM, HATE HIM…!!!” AND A BUNCH OF OTHER INSULTS… so, yeah this is basically how i felt… A WASTE OF TWO PRECIOUS HOURS OF MY PRECIOUS LIFE!!!

    *STILL very HOT ROB

    Comment by cullenchik — September 8, 2008 @ 9:32 pm

  202. I thought it was pretty hilarious. I got to see Cam and that was all that mattered. I don’t like Pattinson so much, so I laughed, it was funny.
    Ha ha! I’m still laughing

    Comment by Raven D. Brandon — September 8, 2008 @ 9:58 pm

  203. UGH.

    I wasted an hour of my life watching an awards show that sucked, waiting to hear Rob speak…and then he doesn’t speak.

    I know this isn’t MTVs fault. It’s Russell Brand’s. I don’t like him anymore. HOW DARE HE?!

    Poor Rob. I feel so bad for him.

    I bet he never had to do this much publicity for a movie before.

    Like I said, this wasn’t MTV’s fault but they shoudl try to make it up to us….by giving us a really really good twilight tuesday.

    Comment by Andrea — September 8, 2008 @ 10:25 pm

  204. I AM SOOOOOOOO PISSED THAT RUSSELL BRAND CUT OFF ROB WHEN HE WAS ABOUT TO INTRODUCE PARAMORE. one of the only reasons why i watched the VMAs was to see the twilight cast present! the whole show was ruined for me when russell cut off rob. i didnt even finish watching the rest of the VMAs cuz i was so mad. UGH! I am very dissapointed right now! i can’t believe it! i was so stoked and excited when they came out and i was most looking forward to Rob speaking, then all of a sudden i didnt get to hear his beautiful engilish accent voice, and i screamed! i was like “WTF?! STUPID RUSSELL JUST CUT ROB OFF! HE IS SUCH AN IDOIT!” i mean, for russell brand to just cut rob off like that was just plain RUDE.

  206. What a stupid *uckin’ rude English prick! All he did was babble on about nothing the entire night, and then he has the nerve to interupt Rob for his few lines. Somebody should of punched his dumbass out….hint, hint to Cam or Taylor who could of easily taken him. The entire reason for watching it was to see Robert and the cast. Every year it gets more stupid and redicilous. Mtv should of turned off Russell’s mic, or even better never put that dumbass on the stage! Did love how Cam tried to get Rob up front though, like they were good buddies. Which they may be?

    Comment by Christy — September 8, 2008 @ 10:46 pm

  207. i can0t belive that f*** jackass
    interrupted robert
    What the hell does he think
    he are i just can´t belive
    that mtv got to take that dude
    out of rehab :S or that look like
    anyhow i hate him

    Comment by Bella Cullen — September 8, 2008 @ 10:49 pm

  208. So… I like Russell Brand. I like his type of humor. He’s a character, that one is. But… That was so rude. I waited all night for the Twilight cast to come out (having Cam there was a great surprise), and then Rob gets cut off by Russell. I mean, yeah, I wanted to hear him announce Paramore. But rather than freak out that “OMG EDWARD DIDN’T GET TO TALK”, I’m just upset that Russell didn’t even apologize. I kinda feel sorry for him – Twilighters everywhere now have their bullseyes on Brand’s forehead.

    Comment by PitaBread — September 8, 2008 @ 11:05 pm

  209. who the hell is russel brand ANYWAYS???!?!?!

    He talks too much and he’s an idiot.

    I only watched the awards cuz the twilight cast was going to be presenting. MTV pushed that shit like no other, and what do we get?!? this bullshit.

    Brand looked either wasted, or like he just did a whole lot of Meth.

    Im glad we got to see the cast (of whom, kristen look great for once and not like she just rolled outta bed) but it was a big dissapointment with that D-bag Brand thrown in there. Poor Rob.

    Comment by Kati — September 8, 2008 @ 11:24 pm

  210. The whole point of me watching the VMAs was because of Robert Pattinson! And he got cut off, wtf! I’m so pissed right now! (Ah and Cam was awesome trying to get Rob to the front.)

    Comment by Sonia — September 8, 2008 @ 11:34 pm

  211. It was sooooooooooooooo messed up.. I mean throughout the whole show Rob was the only one to get cut off.. I actually thought Russell or w.e would like give him a praise or w.e cause they are both from the England & the U.K, ya know. BUt NOOOOOOOOOOOO…

    & if you watch it closely Kristen as well as Cam & Taylor were like WTF cause he didn’t let Rob speak exept for like two words.

    & even if Rob didn’t like the spotlight or w.e it was extremely rude of Russell to do that and then later not apologize at all!

    I think that Russell might have been kinda drunk or w.e cause what was up with all the Sex talk and references..

    But as soon as I saw him interrupt Rob I just knew that me as well as the rest of the Twilight/Rob supporters were gonna get pissed!! It was rude & disrespectful beyond anything else.

    I say they let Rob & the rest of the Twilight Cast host the next VMAS or the movie ones =D

    Comment by Ana — September 8, 2008 @ 11:40 pm

  212. hmmmm.. must be a british thing or something like it? maybe their personal humor? haha.. i feel really bad for rob though.. i mean being humiliated and all.. :(

    Comment by kai — September 9, 2008 @ 12:55 am

  213. I was sooo mad. I work at night so I made myself get up two hours early just so I could watch the Twilight cast on the VMAs. I even watched the opening act just in case they showed the cast coming down the red carpet. Which they did not. I was absolutely appalled when the Twilight cast finally came on during the show and then had to watch Russell Brand talk over Robert Pattinson. How rude can you get? I was livid the remainder of the night and refused to watch the rest of the show. Russell should have been slapped.

    Comment by Valerie — September 9, 2008 @ 1:26 am

  214. Ok, Twilight and Paramore! how cool was that going to be!!!Lucky me he didn’t cut Taylor, but he cut off Rob!! I mean why he didn’t leave and let them present in peace!!Just look at Rob’s face when he is interrupted…I don’t want to say anything else ’cause I’m too pissed to say something respectful to him

    ps-. So what if the JoBros want to be virgin ’til marriage, why does he even care!!it’s their own life!!

    Comment by Sam — September 9, 2008 @ 2:11 am

  215. I actually watched the VMA’s to see the Jonas Brothers and the Twilight cast.Brand needs to make a name for himself in the US, but not this way. Robert Pattinson is a really cool guy, so I think he won’t be too upset.

  218. The MTV host was incredibly rude! A host is supposed to make guests feel welcome, not treat them as if they didn’t exist. There was so much hype from MTV over the Twilight cast and it was a huge disappointment! Taylor walked out with Kristen then stood right next to her. Robert went to stand close to her but was behind her. Cam pulled him to the front – at least he knows Robert belonged in the front. What is it with Taylor? The book revolves around Bella and Edward, therefore the actors who are protraying them should be front and center! Ugh – Taylor is just like Jacob – always attempting to get in the way! News to Twilight promoters – we don’t want to see Taylor with Kristen in the pics!

    Comment by abby — September 9, 2008 @ 8:14 am

  219. What a joke the VMA’s have become! Russell Brand is a freakin disgrace, he has a rotten sence of humor! He’s not funny at all, all I could think while I was watching was “somebody get him a hairstylist” and then he made the worst mistake possible, he cut off our King, Robert Pattinson, who by the way took it very graciously, he’s what I call a gentleman, and Mr Brand a jackass!

    Comment by Christie2484 — September 9, 2008 @ 11:07 am

  220. I wasted my freakin hour just to wait to hear Rob and the rest of the Twilight cast when I could have been studying for my test-for which I’m pretty sure I failed..
    But thanks to Russell f***ing Brand, I DIDN’T HEAR ROB!
    So basically yes,I am beyond pissed..
    VMA’s this year was hella s***ty..
    if I could,I’d kick Russell in his damn balls and make him feel the f***ing pain..
    stupid idiot…

    Comment by Marybeth — September 9, 2008 @ 12:03 pm

  221. What in this world was MTV thinking when they asked that LOSER to host the vma’s? I mean, who is Russell Brand anyway other than an OBNOXIOUS IDIOT! He is not funny and he needs to learn how to comb his hair! He also needs to show some RESPECT to the fans and cast of TWILIGHT! I thought what he did to Rob was soooo RUDE. He really owes them an apology as well as the fans! I’m not one that usually watches the whole vma’s, but I was soooo excited to see the cast there that I actually taped it(What a waste!) and I can honestly say that if MTV continues to seek out these kinds of hosts, I will never watch them again! shame on you MTV and go back to where you came from Russell Brand!! TWILIGHT ROCKS!!!!!

    Comment by tanya — September 9, 2008 @ 12:49 pm

  222. I live in Scotland so this was a big thing for me since the news the UK gets about twilight in ONLY online.
    I don’t usually watch the VMA’s but you know I heard it had twilight in it OF COURSE I was gonna watch it!
    So watched the whole show & then when it came to twilight introducing Paramore- drugged up Russel Brand
    cut through Rob!
    I actually died…
    I hate Russel Brand.
    He has ruined my life.
    Whats also annoying is that Taylor spoke and ROB didn’t!
    No offense to Taylor -I like Tayor- it’s just I waited to hear Rob speak.
    And so the silence of Twilight in the UK continues…

    Comment by Olivia — September 9, 2008 @ 1:09 pm

  223. Brand is a wanker.

    Comment by Blazel — September 9, 2008 @ 1:30 pm

  224. i think russell Brand is beyond RUDE… its not like they dont know who is supposed to say what… as the host he obviously knew who he was presenting and who he wasnt… so i DO believe it was a rude move on his part… Bc MTV has been promoting Twilight i feel that they should have made it a point for the cast to receive a proper introduction and made SURE that EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM got the moment of glory they deserved… Rob, like the gentleman that he is, did not fuss about it… but that is why he has an adoring fan base we should do the dirty work for him!!!

    Comment by karla — September 9, 2008 @ 3:16 pm

  225. Seriously? People, get a hold of yourselves.
    First off, it is pretty pathetic that you will watch the VMA’s for how long it is on, to see 4 (count ’em.. four!) people introduce a band. When you can apparently just watch it on the internet afterwards. So what was the point of you staying up? .. There was none, right. All of you are making fools of yourselves. Also because it is over the cast of a movie that COMPLETELY ruins the book. That cast is a joke. In the book the characters are supposed to be beautiful. The cast they picked is the complete opposite.. (I am a die-hard fan of the books) None of them are even decent looking. And I praise who commented on their boring monotone voices and all the people who applauded Russel Brand. Their voices are very boring and I can’t stand it. Russel did an excellent job at hosting the VMA’s, which usually aren’t as entertaining. He was hilarious, and so what if he made jokes and interrupted people! You yourselves probably are huge ass bitches to people you don’t even know.. obviously since you don’t know Russel and you are completely dissing hime. Because he also had somewhat of a script (unless you were too stupid to notice) it isn’t like he made up every little thing he said!
    So get over this. It isn’t the end of the world, and if it was, then we’d all be dead and it wouldn’t even matter..

    Comment by Jessie — September 9, 2008 @ 4:40 pm

    Comment by Shannon Cullen — September 9, 2008 @ 4:44 pm

  227. I think that Russel was just jealous because Robs accent is way sexier than his. Ha take that Russel and it totally makes sense. I hope russel Burns in hell!
    But yeah I totally hated the VMA’s except for the fact that Rob was THERE… I thought he looked fantastic but I woulda loved to hear him announce paramore. I was all ready too like I had my camera recording it and my phone recording it but of course next time he is on TV won’t be prepared.

    Comment by Bribri — September 9, 2008 @ 4:48 pm

  228. he’s so stupid!
    i hate him!
    he should’ve let Rob talk!!! ):
    that was the whole point of why i wanted to seee it!
    ): ): ): ):
    he shouldn’t have cut him offf!

    ehh I can’t believe they cut him off ):
    I don’t think Russell was that funny -____-

    Comment by stefanigabby — September 9, 2008 @ 7:06 pm

  229. Well, I am very frustrated about what happened, because the first thing that encouraged me to see the Mtv’s was the appearance of the cast of Twilight, and it is a shame that the guy try to doing of the funny one.



    Comment by Joanna — September 9, 2008 @ 7:16 pm

  230. What I find utterly fascinating is that the movie which brought us the ultra cool sneak peek of Edward and Bella in his bedroom, “Penelope” had Russell Brand in it. I just watched it again today and was taken aback to see the guy who has all of us riled up and about to form a lynch mob. Life is weird sometimes.

    At least video’s are now surfacing from before and after the show of our beloved cast. We should have saved ourselves the agony of actually watching the show and just caught it online. Much less painful that way.

    Comment by katie — September 9, 2008 @ 9:39 pm

  232. You’re all overreacting, it was funny. I bet your Pattinson even laughed about it, so get over it.

    Comment by Raven D. Brandon — September 10, 2008 @ 1:05 am

  233. Okay, I didn’t get to see it on tele because me mother thought it would hilarious to watch me rage >_> Seriously, but I just saw it then and Rob’s mic was working fine.
    He got to start and then was cut off.
    That I can deal with. They could’ve even contributed to the hosts blabbing but NO! He just finishes his little story then takes Rob’s line.

    I guess I’m a manners girl or something but that ain’t cool. Rob actually seemed to look a little annoyed…and another thing…what was with the such a small space?? Again I didn’t see the show so I dunno what the set up looked like *shrug*

    Keh. Not. Happy. Jan.

  238. When I friend of mine told me about Twilight mentioned here, I wanted to kill myself that I didn’t watch it but now, what the hell did that moron do?? How he could interupt Rob? I wanted to hear him not that moron or those songs after that.

    PS. I have no idea who is that, probably this Russel you are mentioning but that was unforgivable of his side.

    Comment by Antonijs — September 14, 2008 @ 4:00 pm

  239. that made me mad! WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD ANYONE CUT HIM OFF????

    Comment by Heather — September 15, 2008 @ 3:55 pm

  240. After it happened i knew Rob wasn’t gonna overreact or anything of that matter because that’s not who he is.. He has class and knows how to behave. But just because he wasn’t gonna say anything bad about Russell or about what happened does not mean that the fans cannot get mad. So all those people saying that the fans are overreacting SHUT THE FUCK UP!
    Because by Rob not badmouthing it is showing who is the bigger person. & obviously it’s not Russell.

    *I am not saying I am super mature, so don’t even start with those attacks*

    Comment by Ana — September 16, 2008 @ 9:46 pm

  241. Who was that commentator? He did such a bad job and was so rude, cutting everyone off. VERY BAD choice MTV. Political views should also NOT be aired on award shows!!

  243. ok, I didnt really watch the VMA because I dont know when their going to air it. I was pretty excited but I didnt see it. Stupid right, but anyways after hearing this I dont want to see it. Poor Robert Pattinson, he is just so cool. I also pretty feel bad about the other cast but anyways that news is just crappy.

    Comment by Jarmaine — September 27, 2008 @ 12:25 am

  244. That pissed me off!!!! Well atleast Rob handeled it with class
    and i got to see Taylor who is so hot but i still didn’t get to see Rob!!!
