Former MTV VJ Kennedy, now a Los Angeles radio DJ, still has fond memories of her 1992-1997 stint at the cable channel. That's why she subtitled her new memoir, The Kennedy Chronicles (out Tuesday), The Golden Age of MTV Through Rose-Colored Glasses. "The MTV studio was where you wanted to be," she says.

Power? We don't need no stinking power... we have you!
True story: About halfway into last night's VMAs — thanks to a certain city's top-notch post-Hurricane Irene repair work — Watercooler Central actually lost power. One minute, Adele is reminding us what singing sounds like without autotune, the next minute, total darkness. If only we'd been blessed with the absence of cable during Lady Gaga's drag-king opening performance. That pompadoured greaser mess looked like something out of RuPaul's The Outsiders.
