    Actually, it flings the bacon straight off the table and leaves Chappelle at home in order to get to dancier places more apropos for an earnest homage to a.m. fornication. It's a perfect jumping-off point for people who are pro-Prince but haven't fig...

    Tess Lynch

    Well, VMAs, I have to hand it to you. You've hijacked all of the feeds. You're drunk, you're driving, you're being tailed by police, you're hitting telephone poles and you're still going. I guess you've won. I guess we've been dwarfed by your enormit...
