Tana Mongeau Gets Roasted For Not Knowing Which State She Was In At The VMAs
Tana Mongeau was one of the many celebrities invited to the VMAs last night — to many people’s surprise (she DOES have a show with MTV guys, keep up). As we all know, the show took place in Newark, which is in New Jersey, and not in New York City or Brooklyn, where it’s held most years. Tana, however, wasn’t too sure where she was last night, or just thought that Newark was in New York.
Yesterday, the YouTuber tweeted about how excited she was to attend the show. “On my way to my favorite city in the world…another year in a row,” she tweeted. “I never thought I’d be invited to the VMAs once, let alone twice.”
omg VMAs. on my way to my favorite city in the world… another year in a row. i never thought i’d be invited to the VMAs once, let alone twice. i never thought standing on that carpet last year that 365 days later i’d have a show with MTV and a season under my belt..

Okay, so maybe Newark IS Tana’s favorite city — it’s a great place, don’t get us wrong. But, considering the 21-year-old hangs out in NYC a lot and has expressed her love for it before, we think she might have gotten the two mixed up. So does everyone else on Twitter, who is roasting the reality star for her negligence.
your favorite city…. in the world….. is Newark??? and i oop

Oh, Tana, it was an easy mistake! That’s not the only reason she made headlines last night, however. Tana rocked the VMAs red carpet with a hot new accessory … a snake. The star channeled her inner Britney Spears by wearing a huge yellow snake on the red carpet as a homage to Britney’s iconic “I’m A Slave 4 U,” VMAs performance in 2001.
Of course, Twitter was not happy with Tana’s outfit choice, with some saying it was an insult to Britney (harsh) and also that an animal is not an accessory (true).
I seriously can’t believe tana brought a snake to the #VMAs like (?????) poor snake

using a live animal as an accessory is so goddamn weird. i didn’t agree with britney holding the snake and i don’t agree with tana doing it. can you imagine how stressed out that snake is right now???? #VMAs

We’re sure the only thing Tana cared about was turning some heads, which is exactly what she did.
