Ok, I'm back to life. I know that you are all DYING to read a report about what went down at the EMAs last night so I'm going to give it to you. Bring it on!


It all started on Saturday. After a lot of trouble I arrived in Amsterdam and met up with the others. I had made reservation at this Italian place I thought we went to last time in Amsterdam, but it turned out I had the wrong one. It's ok, even though my Tortellini wasn't half as good as it was supposed to be. Anyways, enough about food!
Flor got an email saying that we had to pick up our tickets at the Conservatorium hotel. Now I'll have you know, that place is fancy. But not just fancy. You take fancy and you double that as many times as you can until you think HOLY FUCK THAT IS FANCY! Anyway, we made our way down there in the rain and as we casually wanted to walk in, we were pushed back by this security guard because apparently when big stars are in town you can't casually walk into places. Which is lame. Anyway, we told him we were there to pick up tickets and were then escorted inside.
The place was HUGE and chic and it was probably the most amazing hotel I've ever seen. There was a problem with the tickets so a lot of arranging and stress and us chilling on the very fluffy couches pretending to belong there when finally the tickets came down and we were kindly asked to get the fuck out.


Sunday consisted mainly of getting ready which took hours because you have got to look fabulous at an event like this. At 5 we finally went down to the Arena Boulevard and had some very lady-like food. Kebab, yay!

We walked to the Ziggo dome where we took weird photos with the MTV sign.

We then went to the queue and waited until we were let in. My feet were frozen at this point. The queue next to us was the regular one and I was very happy I wasn't in there. The pushing and screaming was insane. When the door finally opened, madness came down upon Amsterdam. I talked to our security woman and she said she was glad she wasn't on that side.

Anyway, to the imporant part; We went upstairs and we got FREE ALCOHOL! I am not usually a drinker of alcoholic beverages, but these waiters were looking at me with their puppy eyes and I just couldn't say no. I asked what all the mixes were, forgot right away, and grabbed a glass which I later found out contained vodka and something else but it was so sweet that I didn't notice. Hence the headache today. Anyway, we decided to walk around some more, I spotted a famoussss Dutch person and was all excited, then we got free make-up AND all the drinks were free as well, so basically it was one big festival of free stuff. Which I like.

As the time passed we spotted Jodie Harsh in the crowd which I was excited about but then 5 minutes later Bruno Mars and Ariana Grande casually walked in to the artist area right in front of us and I was super excited and really, Ariana is so petite and pretty it should be illegal.

The show started and shit went down and we had an amazing time.

First Robin Thicke performed a medley of Blurred Lines and a song I already forgot but he was really good. Then Bruno Mars was all adorable picking up his award and Katy's performance was incredible as you probably all witnessed live on MTV

Katy came into the artist area and casually sat there having a drink and not giving two fucks about anything:

And then she won the best Female award and we went crazy. When she went backstage again, we shouted her name until she heard us. She saw Niko and shouted BUBBLES! BUBBLES! then looked at all of us, did some weird things with her hands trying to get across a message to Flor but failed and was like "whateves" and then waved at us and blew us kisses. Yay.

Other highlights of the night were Miley's performance. Girlfriend can sing if she wants to and is not twerking on anyone near her.

Eminem's performance was a big deal apparently. I am not really into Eminem that much lately but I liked his older stuff and it was cool having seen him live.

When Miley walked into the artist area, only 2 people managed to get up to her for a photo as the rest were kept away from her as she was just being Miley, posing on the couch.

I will also let you in on a little secret. Everybody was so shocked about Miley lighting a joint, but we could see her backstage from where we were and she put it out right away backstage. Sorry to ruin your controversy Miley :(

I liked this photo too:

All in all, it was an amazing night and I feel very fortunate that I had the opportunity to be there.
