The European Music Awards were Sunday evening and they were quite a hit here in Madrid, mainly to their free events all week to promote the awards! I have to hand it to them on publicity this year, free events equals a happy public! The free concerts in Puerta de Alacla were a sucess, though extremely crowded. Main gossip is that only the Jersey Shore peeps were at the afterparty…(so the big question is…where were all the celebs at?!) Lady Gaga won the most awards: Best Pop Artist, Best Song (Bad Romance), and Best Female Artist, but wasn´t there to accept them as she was touring in another country! Justin Bieber took the award for Best Male Artist, and Enrique Inglesias for Best Spanish Artist. Best video was Katy Perry´s ´California Gurls´, and best hip hop artist was Eminem. Rihanna, although she performed new hit song ´Only Girl´ went home empty handed. Oh and my personal favorite, Best New Artist award went to…Ke$ha…lol! Eva Longoria presented the awards and looked AMAZING. So did Shakira, performed everyone´s favorite song, ´Waka Waka´See photos below!
