as i sat and watched the vma's last night, a couple of things came to mind....#1 is that really a meat suit lady gaga is wearing? and secondly, who is this music being made for...because it's certainly not for me.
i like to think of myself as a pretty open minded person when it comes to art. even in times when the art pushes my moral boundaries...i can usually hold back my gag reflex just enough to appreciate the expression viewed through the eyes of the artist. but honestly, last night i just realized that i don't get it anymore. heck, I AM the mtv generation. i grew up watching the vma's...but now...i realize that they aren't for me anymore. i spend most of the evening yelling at the tv about how all the songs sound the same or "geez, did they have to tell that joke?" or "c'mon bieber...pull your pants up son!" it was in the middle of my twitter tyraid that realized that i may be too old for the vma's. maybe i need to officially switch to the cma's or the ama's....something...but mtv has officially lost my vote. what a bummer. i remember fondly the days when they actually played (gasp) music videos!!! so with that, i say Adieu to mtv. oddly enough the literal translation being "God be with you" which would certainly be a good change for the network in my opinion.
