so I'd say

teach fiddy cent that it's medley not melody

get John Norris some new hair

less boobage and posing/ posers

take into consideration that people over 30 do still listen to music, not that people over 30 don't listen to that type of music..but still

I only popped in and out of watching it, for me it's unwatchable
Eventually someone has to realise people 30 and older do listen to music. And they have alot more $ to spend than a 16 yr old girl.

That's what VH1 tried to target before, but they seem to have given up.

I think that's a good idea .

I listen to rap music from time to time and do enjoy some of it. But I agree, there really needs to be more of a balance in genres. And yeah, P. Diddy (or Diddy......) shouldn't host anymore.

As I said in another thread, I have a show about the uncensored history of the VMAs on some tape, and I like watching the little medley of the artists that had appeared on there. They had some really good artists on there over the years...I wish I'd seen some of those earlier awards shows, but alas, I was either too little (the awards show started going the year I was born), or there was a time when our cable company stopped carrying MTV, so while I was old enough to pay more attention, I didn't get to see any of what MTV was doing then. And by the time we got the channel back in our lineup, it wasn't as good .

Also...

It was like watching the freakin BET awards or something. I remember when Soundgarden won best metal video award and Cornell said "but I thought we were supposed to be grunge". And when Pearl Jam and Neil Young played on stage together and McCready's guitar wouldn't work and he smashed it to pieces at the end of the set. THE GOOD OLD FREAKIN DAYS OF TRUE ROCK N ROLL. PLEASE BRING ROCK BACK!!! IT REALLY IS DEAD

That's because the advertising world sees 30 year olds and such as "inflexible." You're now more cynical and set in your ways, and you won't create or change brand loyalty based on a cheesy commercial.

Teenagers, on the other hand, are seen as "dumb" and "impulsive," so the hope is that it will translate to buying their product.

This is a drawn-out way of saying that teens are less likely to think for themselves and more like to mindlessly follow whatever the current trend, the 'in' thing, is. Sort of what Nirvana's immortal 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' was all about.

i think it's soooo sad the celebrities who are already rich and well off get gift backs for FREE that are filled with $26,000+ worth of goodies. that could feed a third world country instead!!

anyways, i liked it a lot better in 2002 when JIMMY FALLON hosted it. gosh, i love that guy.

The problem with the VMA's is that MTV and MTV 2 no longer air music videos.

The music video really is a lost art form now-days.

To fix the VMA's you need to start with MTV itself.

There are MTV channels that air videos but the problem is, is that not everyone gets these channels. I get them, but I only get MTV jams which is Hip hop and R&B 24/7, I also get MTV Hits and that's really no different than MTV Jams and MTV espanol.

Do understand that that $26,000+ would only materialize if these celebrities sold their goodies. The cost of manufacturing these "goodies" is substantially lower. And, of course, companies give them away for free, because they hope that the aforementioned celebrities will be shown wearing their product in the media and then boost their sales amongst paying customers.

It's quite contorted logic at face value.
