VMA awards


Images Last night i subjected myself to an hour of the VMA awards.  i wondered if it was age (on my behalf) or just awful.  Was I seeing that less and less talented people are making their way into the music industry?  The dj of the night not only rambled on, he said things that would have been inappropriate at a party in any company.

Madonna's "talk" to the audience of how Michael Jackson was king and his (and her) difficulty in the spotlight and being judged at all times is hard.  Please, Madonna embraces it. Quite the bullshit show.

As awards were being given and in the middle of them, they would cut out to the video put together for the next awards.  Totally disorganized. When the pre-recorded act of Taylor Swift dancing in the subway came on, I turned off.

Poorly produced, so poorly scripted that one can only wonder how actors and musicians speak without writers feeding them words.  There appears to be a huge disconnect between the huge growing audience for bands that are putting themselves out there on Myspace and other venues to create niche audiences and the large overblown productions of yesteryear.

To me, the VMA awards were not only awful on so many levels, it just confirms how out of touch the music industry is with the majority to their audience.  It was so 1990.

    I’m really happy for you, I’m(a) let you finish, but Beyonce has one of the best blogs of all time. ; )Seriously, you’re not old, you’re right. I’m shocked you made it an hour. Brava. I know you like music and food, and just read that IFC picked up Dinner With The Band. Here’s a link if you’re interested. Looks promising. http://bit.ly/19qNQC

      Wow. I ended up watching more of the show last night with Josh, since hetivo’d it. Even Josh thought it was bad. To me, it was like watching atrain wreck in slow motion.

    I made it through about 1/2 hour and thought “I guess I am officially too old for MTV”. It felt way too ADD or something. Glad to hear you (and sounds like others) agree.

      I’m glad others agreed too. Maybe I am not as old as I think even though Iam.
