i haven't watched it yet. i taped it because I cannot stand to sit through most of it.

I want to see Duran Duran, I heard they won the lifetime award but that the presentation got F'ed up because of the sound or something.

I also heard that Simon looked great, and so did JT and Roger. ( DUH!)

I want to see Coldplays performance.

The rest of show I don't really care about.
I don't watch MTV anymore. I didn't even know what "punk'd" meant until today...

And I don't consider it getting old, I consider it " having taste"

I was watching MTV2 Wednesday night and they were showing videos that won VMAs in the past, with an hour devoted to each year. I missed the first few hours, and by the time I tuned in they were showing Neil Young's "This Note's For You." Over the next few hours until I finally turned in for the night I saw VMA-winning videos by great bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Jane's Addiction, U2 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was great, but at the same time it made me really, really sad for the terrible state of the music industry today. I didn't even watch this year's VMAs because I just knew Justin Tinkertoy would beat Johnny Cash and my TV would be in danger of having a hole punched through it with my fist.

I guess I sound old and bitter. Well, maybe it's because I am.

BTW, I hope Mr. Cash gets well soon. And I'm glad Coldplay won some awards. I haven't seen the entire video for "The Scientist" yet because I rarely bother to turn on VH-1 in the mornings when I'm getting ready for work anymore, and every time I do they are either in the middle of the video or at the very end - but it's a very interesting concept.

"Justin Tinkertoy" I've never heard that one before

Not that I want him to be ill of course, but poor Mr. Cash is lucky he couldn't go-they probably would have asked him to French kiss Justin or sing PIMP w/ 50 Cent

I'm going to keep my commentaries about, and only I'm going to say that I agree with this sentence:

No shit. Mtv has become a joke. I watched some of those Past Winners Hours and all it did was make me wish I was back in high school, because that's when they last played videos.

I remember the good years... like when the Smashing Pumpkins won

now not awarded to the video, now awards the artist who more times appears on Mtv

"Coldplay is the greatest band in the world"

Justin Timberlake said it... and I agree

It was a great performance, not a greatest band in the world performance, but a stellar one indeed.

I did not watch it.
I would not watch it.
I could not be bothered to watch it.
no way.

apart from coldplay, everyone on that show is shit to me. but what can i do about it? nothing. zero. zilch. can't change the way the music industry has become. so, I do my part to protest:

not watch mtv awards.
not listen to top 40 radio.
don't read people, rolling stone, spin, or any other shit mag.

fuck 'em.

i would love to know who did the sound for mtv's awards last night, cuz they really sucked. you couldn't hear the presenters unless they were leaning into the mic, they shouldn't have to be doing that. i remember when iggy pop was up there presenting, you couldn't hear anything he said, and he wasn't that far away!

also, i can't believe they fucked up dd's award like that. it could've still have been a surprise and been better put together. it seemed like even kelly and avril didn't know what was going on, and avril didn't seem to know who they were. at least kelly was trying to get the crowd enthusiastic, but she came off more like a fan than a musician (heh, i know) who was presenting the award.

this was the first year they've done a lifetime achievement award, and i wonder if they'll ever do it again. i mean, to give them no time whatsoever onstage for themselves, and then to have the five of them with kelly and avril and then when justin won and brought up his two homies, there were too many damn people onstage and having them present an award after winning one really stole their thunder. no montage, just like 30 seconds of video clips with NO SOUND, i find it curious that they couldn't get it to work at all.

but anyway, like i said, they could've surprised the band without making it seem to haphazardly put together, like they'd decided that night they were going to give them the award.
