VMAs Fast Becoming The Billboard Awards

Contributed Anonymously:

Over the past years I have noticed that the VMAs have lost their authenticity and in way, they have become the mini Billboard awards. The reason why I say this is because over the past years the winners of the VMAs were judged through the videos and now it seems as if they are judged because of the success of the singles in the Billboard. You will all remember when Beyonce won the VMA for best female artist in 2003 and 2005 crushing Christina Aguilera in 2003 and doing the same thing with Britney Spears in 2004. Both Christina’s and Britney videos were the most talked about and requested videos and if I may say they remain two of the most requested videos in MTV history and for them to win anything it was like were the judges paid or were they drunk. I’m no fan of Britney but her videos are great and as for Aguilera’s they always make headlines but seriously deserving videos are not winning hence their positions in the Billboard. This year the best female artist award will either go to Gwen Stefani or , especially Mariah hence she has spent most weeks at the number spot the others and hence Gwen also managed to grab the number one spot. The same thing will apply to the best male video 50 Cent will win or Eminem will. Call this an essay but whatever the case I think I’m stating the obvious!

    If MusicMan is going to insist on posting essays, he should at least proofread them. This one reads like one long, rambling stream of consciousness.

    i heard from some press, there’s bias into it, just. like the mtv awards, that’s what I’m hearing, eh.

  4. mysteriouscris says:

    yeah I totally agree. I mean, I’m not the hugest Brit fan, but the girl has done so much for mtv in the past 7 years and obviously one of the most popular, but she never wins anything? I think that’s total b u l l ***** and she deserves something at least

  5. Kizzardkid says:

    I really doubt that Mariah will win … she has never won a VMA ever, and she only got 2 nominations when she should have gotten more.

  6. MusicTodayBlows says:

    The VMA’s have sucked anyway for the last several years. The last good one was back in ’99.

    1st time for everything- I have a feeling she will since this is her year

    I have NO respect whatsoever for people who admire or like Gwen Stefani

  8. Vanity87 says:

    I can see where your coming from. All these award shows lately have been about a popularity contest, not artistic merit!

    I definitely agree. “Hollaback girl” was Gwen’s most successful single but far from her best video, that honor has to go to “What You Waiting For”. Also, what’s so special about Snoop Dogg’s “Drop it like it’s hot”? It’s not a good video, but the song was a # 1 hit on Billboard. Coldplay’s “Speed of Sound” is also not worthy of being nominated for “Video of the year”. Last year, Britney was the only female nominated for “Video of the year”, yet she lost the “Best Female Video” award to Beyonce? Doesn’t make much sense.

    So true. and anybody else feel confused about what was so great in the Boulevard of Broken Dreams video by Green Day, except that the song was a massive hit? Yet it got the most nominations and will probably win Best Group Video in the least.

    your are very true. they are like that. they are like any other music awards show. there’s no point in any of them. I think there should be just one awards show for music, movies, sports, tv, and plays/musicals. I think this because I don’t see the point in soo many music award shows. the point of them is to show the best of the best. but if Britney wins best female on one and then Jessica wins on another just who is the best? I think there’s no point to any of them but the Grammys they are supposed to be the best of the best. but then even them are getting kinda stupid.
