I watched the MTV VMA's last night (yes, I know how old I am!) and to balance it out a little, I'm watching Good Morning America now! ha!
A few thoughts...
I can't stand Lady Gaga. I don't like her music, I hate that she weighs in on politics and think it matters because she sings, I think she's a cheap imitation of Madonna, and I think she was an embarrassment on the VMA's. She was a stage whoring laughing stock! She preformed as her alter ego Joe Calderon and that's fine, she's an artist, she's known for being a freak so whatever. What irritated me was her attention begging when presenting Brittney Spears with an achievement award. Okay, I love Brittney, I admit it. Brittney has had quite a few rough patches so why couldn't Gaga shut her mouth and let Brittney have her moment? What a disgusting human, it only drove my distaste to a new level! I will be very happy if I never hear another song or word from that repulsive woman!
Adele...wowza! Joy Beth has been telling me for years that I'd love Adele and I never disagreed, I just didn't pursue it. My kids love her song "Rolling in the Deep" but after watching her perform "Someone Like You" I went on Amazon and bought the CD (again, my age...not an MP3 but a CD!) My new Adele CD should be here by Wednesday! Sorry Joy, you were right!
Where the heck is Katy Perry from? I don't guess I've ever actually heard her speak before and was puzzled by her accent...Hadley LOVES Katy Perry, and I think she's fine, we censor a little but for the most part the kids enjoy her. She seemed a little trashy on the VMA's though...I would have thought she'd present herself better.
Beyonce's pregnant, who cares.
I think Chris Brown is a bad guy, but enjoyed watching him fly around the stage.
WHO is Justin Beiber, and WHY? Really? Why?
All in all, I love the VMA's. I love music, I like the ridiculousness of it all, the wacky clothes, the attention seeking behavior, the great performances, just all of it. I have for years! Cori and I used to record it (on VHS-google it kids) and watch it every year! I haven't outgrown it and really don't think I will. I was SHOCKED to see that The Real World still comes on though!
