The New York Post is reporting that many of the "live" performances on MTV's Video Music Awards - Kanye West's, the Foo Fighters', Fall Out Boy's - were actually taped days ahead of time. The cabler insists that this was only done for "creative reasons." Uh-huh. That's what I always told my mom when I lied, too.
