MTV Awards in Miami limp as linguini


Jay-Z wins four MTV video awards. Usher, No Doubt and OutKast each win two
Holding its festivities for the first time in the city of skin, Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards was sizzling, energetic and colorful - yet tame, by MTV standards

There were no wardrobe malfunctions (sorry TiVo). Britney didnít kiss Madonna like last year - or anyone else, for that matter (neither were at the blowout affair).

The most skin shown was from Usher, who preened in front of the camera barechested as simulated raindrops fell on his chiseled body during the opening performance.

Even the Christina Aguilera was classy, dressed sexy yet demurely as she debuted a jazzy number, “Tilt Ya Head” with rapper Nelly. And the sometimes raunchy comedian Dave Chappelle even kept it relatively clean ó despite teasing that he wouldnít.

“Itís the biggest mistake you made since Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl,” he joked, alluding to the MTV-produced Super Bowl halftime flesh show that created a firestorm earlier this year.

There may have been plenty of sex appeal, but little shock appeal on hand, even though MTV was ready, using a several-second tape delay for the first time. (The audio delay, used for years, was in heavy use during the hip-hop medley, which featured Lil Jon, Petey Pablo and Fat Joe.)
