Having hit reply all, UNSUBSCRIBE to any and all Miley Cyrus hullabaloo and kerfufflery from last night’s MTV VMAS (note to all editorial writers: if your framing device is Miley Cyrus, I don’t care), there wasn’t much VMA stuff of interest to us this morning. That is, at least until Tumblr-er soooitshannah pointed out that the gent at the bottom right of the stage in this gif of ‘NSync’s reunion performance bears a striking resemblance to Ryan Gosling.
It’s a nice thought, but ‘NSync and the VMAs don’t seem like Baby Goose’s scene. (“‘NSync? Who’s ‘NSync? I’m just excited because you’re excited, girl.”). I couldn’t find any pictures of Gosling at the event (other than showing up in this hair farmer’s tattoo), and as far as I can tell, he did not attend. Perhaps the true story is that ‘NSync has hired a Ryan Gosling look alike to be their hype man, which would be brilliant.
Nonetheless, researching this non-story wasn’t a total bust, as I did find this picture of Ryan Gosling at the MTV Movie Awards in 2005:
“Hey, girl. Snakes eating their own tails isn’t cool. The only thing that’s infinite is my capacity for caring.”
