Does Tana Mongeau Know That the MTV VMAs Are in Newark? An Investigation

To be fair, “Newark” and “New York” sound the same through subway speakers.

You see, this year, the VMAs are in Newark, New Jersey. (Not New York City or even Brooklyn, like they have been many times before.) But it doesn’t seem like Tana actually realizes that, even though she is literally in Newark.

“On my way to my favorite city in the world...another year in a row,” Tana tweeted. “I never thought I’d be invited to the VMAs once, let alone twice.”

I mean, maybe Newark is Tana’s favorite city in the world. The New Jersey Devils are a decent hockey team and the Prudential Center has delicious french fries. It’s also home to some of the greatest diners in the country. There are a lot of reasons to love Newark. But...Twitter is pretty sure she doesn’t know that she’s not in New York.

Oh, Tana. To be fair, Newark is just 10 miles outside of New York City, so she’s most likely staying overnight in NYC instead of in New Jersey. Sure, that’s a pricey Uber, but when you make people pay to stream your fake wedding...you’ve got that cash.

Anyway, a loose grasp on geography isn’t the only thing Twitter is roasting Tana for. As an ode to Britney Spears’ “I’m a Slave 4 U” performance from 2001, the content queen showed up with a snake as an accessory. TBH, this was a pretty questionable decision. Then again...what did we ever do before controversial YouTubers?
