Pitbull‘s fully and undeniably pretty dominating. Everything. He’s crushing charts and airwaves (oh yeah and the Internet, at over 3 million downloads and rising) right now with his unstoppably huge hit, “Give Me Everything,” and at this point he’s officially earned his nickname, Mr. Worldwide. To watch Pitbull in action is to watch a man on top of his game and on top of the world. But when Pitbull steps onto the VMA stage to perform “Give Me Everything” this Sunday night, he’s gonna have the world at his feet. As well as a couple of seriously sexy (and highly flexible) dancers.
While I was lucky enough to sit in on Pitbull’s VMA rehearsal (having had “Give Me Everything” stuck on repeat in my head since March, I was totally fine with the opportunity to hear it live several times in rehearsal) I can’t give away too much of what’s going to happen VMA night other than to confirm that the golden-voiced Ne-Yo and the seriously sexy newcomer Nayer will join him and that the performance will be a full-blown spectacle.

Sure you know the infectious Euro house banger by heart. And sure, it’s a carefree fist-pump-friendly opportunity to sweat through your shirt on the dance floor, down a few too many beverages, and leave your options for the rest of the night wide open. But lest you confuse Pitbull’s message as one of sheer t-shirt-time decadence, there are some real life lessons to be learned. Embrace positivity. Let go of the past. Live in the moment, stop freaking out over nothing, and just enjoy life.
But no matter what you take away from the song, Pitbull’s guaranteed to deliver VMA night. The world belongs to Mr. Worldwide.
