Music Isn’t What Rocks MTV’s Video Awards

Jim Farber of the New York Daily News writes, “Let’s face it: It makes as much sense for MTV to give out awards for the best music videos these days as it would for the Christian Broadcasting Network to fork over prizes for the best porno videos. That’s because there’s nothing in the actual programming to reflect it.”

    pop music in general is in an all-time low with horrible acts like gwen stefani

    I agree with this article. 90% of the stuff on MTV has nothing to do with music videos. Why do they even have this awards show anymore? Not to mention it gets more and more boring each year with each host being worse than the last.

    THAT MTV IS SO BIAS, FROM WHAT I’M HEARING, ACCORDING TO SOME PRESS. PERHAPS, THEY’RE AFTER RATINGS, I DON’T DON’T IF PAYOLA INVOLVES, EH. COME LET’S BE FAIR TO ANY ARTISTS, PLEASE, OF, GIVING THEM FAIR EXPOSURE, IN THAT WAY, WE WILL NOT BE BRANDED AS BIAS, PLEASE. THIS MTV, SO MANY OBSERVE, TOO MUCH EXPOSURE, THEY’VE GIVEN TO J-LOW AND DIDDY, IN THE PAST YEARS, THAN MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE, IN MUSIC HISTORY, I’M NOT LYING, I’M JUST BEING HONEST. GO AHEAD PEOPLE, DO YOUR THING, BUT, I SWEAR, I’M NOT GONNA ALLOW MYSELF JOINING SUCH THING, NEVER. KEEP IN MIND, THEIR TIME WILL ALSO COME SOMEDAY, THAT’S FOR SURE. NO WONDER, GWEN STEFANI IS NOT WILL NOT BE THERE. PERHAPS, IS MTV BIAS?

    i agree! what will rock the video awards this year is Hilary co-presenting with joel!!

  5. jazzprofounder says:

    I definitely agree. Nearly every artist these days on MTV has similar themed music videos with nearly every music video cliche in the book! Sometimes I wonder why it’s called MTV. It’s hardly about music anymore, and its not as entertaining as it used to. And its award shows get more and more boring each year. I don’t even remember or care to remember what the last VMA’s I saw was like.

  6. DarkLord says:

    Very well said, there were no memorable moments or performances last year. With Diddy hosting this year, it can only get worse.

  7. yelenerz says:

    MTV is no longer about music but when they do play videos in the mornings all of them are the same and only what MTV thinks is cool at that point–like RNB and rap, and certain artists that have “good” songs, but not necessarily good videos.

  8. hotstuff says:

    It’s funny b/c the star status of the celeb list just keeps getting bigger and bigger. You have some pretty big celebs attending the show in terms of media attention, the stars who attend are all pretty much A list celebs, but a lot of people seem to not care as much anymore. Not even the guest list of the awards can save it now. They VMA’s get more grand and over the top each year like arriving in the yachts, it’s all the same now: PREDICTABLE.
