Latest CNNGo.com "Say What? with mrbrown" column: mrbrown is engrossed by the MTV EMAs
I was invited to watch a preview of the MTV European Music Awards before the rest of Southeast Asia got to watch it. This year's gala event was held in Madrid, Spain but my invite only extended to Lorong Chuan, Singapore, where MTV Asia's headquarters were located.
I did get a nice limousine taxi picking me up for the very early morning screening of the awards show (probably because they heard of my reputation for not being a morning person). My wife hitched a ride because she worked nearby, so she was most pleased with a free cab ride, during rush hour, on a Monday morning.
I was pretty much the first folk to see this broadcast (besides the staff) in Singapore because the EMAs were broadcast at 3 a.m. Singapore time, just hours before. Our host was Holly, the lovely VJ. (cont'd)
