A Word on the VMAs

mtvAs threatened, I tuned into the MTV Video Music Awards last night. While it's fresh in my mind, and because you're dying to know what I thought, here's my two cents.

The Brit wasn't ready for prime time. Bless her heart, she didn't look bad considering her diet of Doritos and Pepsi, but her lip syncing wasn't even close and her choreography was so safe and boring, my three year old daughter could out dance her. I've seen Britney Spears kill at award shows like this, but last night I just saw her die on stage. It was sad.

The format was a fairly ballsy change for MTV, and it eventually grew on me. I applaud the decision to air more performances and less awards, but many of the "private party" peeks were simply too short. For example, I'd just get into a Foo Fighter's performance and they'd be moving on after about a minute. It was a sweet taste, but it wasn't enough. It was one giant tease after another.

Other than the fact many of the aired performances were too short, it was pretty slick. I'm just sorry they didn't air the Kid Rock vs. Tommy Lee episode. I was rooting for Kid.

They tease you because somewhere down the road they will release a limited edition DVD that people who still watch award shows will probably die

MTV is pretty irrelevant
