Kelly Clarkson is a little late to the VMAs party, but she can sum it up in just two words.
Ouch! But before anyone takes offense, perhaps Clarkson was paying a compliment. (We said "perhaps.")
"WTF? That wasn't very nice," one of the singer's followers tweeted.
Clarkson replied with a laugh and what we would only imagine was a shrug to rival Kanye West's: "that WAS me being nice!" she said.
Justin Timberlake, meanwhile, is also riding the high of last night's festivities. The winner of the Video of the Year award felt compelled to pen an open letter to his fans over on his website, thanking them for their support since his big comeback was announced in January.
"The last time I wrote you an open letter ... I promised that it would be a 'Big 2013,'" Timberlake said. "Since then, from The Grammys to the release of the first part of 'The 20/20 Experience' to the crowd's response at the VMAs, it's been a wild ride. I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have."
But Timberlake's just getting started. The second half of "The 20/20 Experience" is scheduled to arrive on September 30, and although the songs it holds were written with the others over a year ago.
"It's been so hard to wait this long to release them," Timberlake writes. "I can't wait for all of you to hear 'The 20/20 Experience' in full."
This wouldn't be Timberlake if he didn't offer a tease, and sure enough, the singer has shared a two-minute promo that takes fans behind-the-scenes of the making of "20/20."
"It was like no other time I've ever had in the studio," Timberlake said. "Catch your breath ... We've still got the 3rd and 4th quarter to go. This is too much fun."
