LAS VEGAS, NV - Right before the end of the final musical act of last night's MTV Video Awards, Puff Daddy got on the mic, looked into the camera, and invited everyone to a party at the 32nd floor of the Palms hotel here in Las Vegas.

Well, I just happened to be in the Palms hotel, and I had a pair of pretty nice laminates, so I was able to make it to the 32nd floor of the Palms shortly after the awards ended, I even had a gorgeous blonde date with a tiny dress, but when we arrived at the 32nd floor, the guy on the chair in the hall said to the elevator full of party people "artists only. This ain't that kind of party." And then repeated again, "artists only."

I said, "perfect, my name is Vincent, and this is Michaelangelo."

Oddly, the gentleman was not aware of our work, or Diddy's invitation, and sent us, and everyone else who weren't artists, back on the elevator and back down to... Las Vegas.

Poor us.

Truth of the matter is, despite that rejection, and the freaky clusterfuck that we experienced inside the Palms as MTV took on the ambitious task of trying to produce a live musical television broadcast, set in over a dozen locations within a hotel casino - as the gambling continued - the VMAs were a thrill to attend.

After the jump, who looked hot, who did not, and who got the biggest cheers from the fans who filled the casino...
