MTV Europe Music Awards: Finger-Biting Good!

Can we already thank President-Elect Obama for improving our relations abroad?

Seems the recent regime change might have dipped in America’s favor, as U.S. artists cleaned up at last night’s MTV Europe Music Awards.

Hosted by firecracker Katy Perry, trophies were doled out to the likes of Britney Spears (who had a prior engagement), Lil Wayne and 30 Seconds to Mars (Jared Leto’s Band).

Even bigger than the red, white and blue trophy winners seemed to be their red carpet statements. Perhaps they think their passports guarantee amnesty from the fashion police?

Take Beyonce, a/k/a Sasha Fierce, sporting two robotic looks for the carpet and her performance of the chart-burning If I Were A Boy. Talk about a hit machine…

Kanye West cleaned up well in a stark white tux for a combo performance of Love Lockdown and American Boy with Estelle.

Not one to be outdone, mistress of ceremonies Perry brought the most outrageous looks.

The singer straddled a giant cherry chap-stick in a football jersey, stood atop two suggestive cherries in a frothy one-piece and even rocked a carousel skirt to lay claim as a new generations dirty Susan Lucci.

“Maybe Europe will love us again now,” Perry quipped on stage.

With 12 costume changes, who wouldn’t, Katy?
