What was with the film they used to film the award show? It was like watching a movie, it was weird and I think I got dizzy.

Jimmy Fallon was great, some of his stuff was eh..

Glad to see N'Sync didn't win anything!!!
I think it's safe to say the boy band era is over!

Eminem is an ass. But hey, that's what happens when "mommy doesn't pay attention to you as a child" Yeah, he has issues, too bad he deals with them publicaly.

David Lee Roth is sad. The 80's are long gone buddy.

The Vines performance was better than their Late Show With David Letterman performance.

I dig the Hives, they're rock and roll.

GNR was great, I guess, nice to see them, but it seemed like they just had to churn out the hits so people would remember who they were. Axl's voice has gone to hell. I cringed.

People shouldn't rag on The White Stripes, they're a lot better than most of the bands that are getting popular now due to this 70's new york rock revival. I think it's cool how it'sjust the girl and the guy, and they don't dress like how everyone else is dressing (Like thrift store fashion). I think they'll be around for a while, while others will fade away.

That said, did Britney win anything? Or is she still the 'artist' without any MTV award? As I said above, I haven't seen the show here in Europe, so I can still be hoping that some 'artists' don't win anything.

C ya!

Didn't miss much

I currently am watching the replay of the VMA's 'cause I had to work late...and I'm writing a mini-paper, and switching the channel back and forth between that and "The Great White Hype", because it is such a hillarious movie...this whole thing seems like a wash to me...nothing good on it at all. That whole Vines/Hives performance was horrible, neither band is worth their salt sorta speak...and upon watching a couple of secs of the "solo" Justin performance, I realized that one of his backup dancers looks like DMX. Thats all for now.

I agree with you on that one! Jennifer Lopez comes from my neighborhood which I can assure you is NOT a poor urban area. She went to the same private catholic high school I did which is in the best area of the bronx, and is one of the most expensive H.S's in the bronx.

I've always hated that she "claimed" to have grown up in the projects....She should know better than to lie like that when so many of her family and friends and people like me know that its an outright lie.

As for the rest of the show I flipped to it maybe once or twice and the only thing I enjoyed was the film they used. It did look like a movie or something.

And I had NO IDEA that GnR were playing otherwise I may have tuned in. That's alright, MTV is going to re-run it a gazillion times now anyway so I'll catch it one day.

Indeed, but nor did my post belong in EYM - despite Popmartijn's insistence to the contrary.

This thread, which clearly belongs in the Lemonade Stand, is devoted to comments about the MTV VMA's - and MY POST WAS SUCH A COMMENT.

Or am I not allowed to discuss politics or religion in other forums, regardless of how they intersect with U2's music or with the fashion sense (or lack thereof) of some schmuck on an awards show?

Is this why Eminem got booed after he received one of his awards?

So damn true. He was sad back then, too.

Just a few thoughts on the VMAs. I have been watching them since I was in grade school and that had to be the worst show yet.


*I think they used film instead of video to shoot the show. I didn't care for it. It made it seem like people were lip synching, or like the whole show was pre-recorded.

*Moby is such a class act. Eminem needs to see a psychiatrist. I was glad when he got booed.

*Justin Timberlake = Michael Jackson wannabe

*GNR = Like I said in the other thread, I was embarrassed to even watch that. Axl sounded like he hadn't sung on stage in awhile, all out of breath from minimal dancing around. The rest of the band looked like morons. In no way is wearing a Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket on your head cool in my book. I want the old band or nothing after seeing that last night.

*I'm glad Mary J. Blige won, and No Doubt, and the White Stripes.

*Vines vs. Hives. They both sounded like ass, imho. I don't understand this new trend of playing music where you barely sound like you know how to play your instruments and you don't really sing, you just kind of scream.

*Britney and Christina looked incredibly trashy.

Well, these are just my opinions. Sorry to diss anyone's favorite band. Judging by last night's show, U2 really are the last of the rock stars (and maybe Bruce) . I know I said a lot of negative stuff, but like I said, I've seen almost every VMA, and that one was pretty bad. Sorry to so much!

Bruce actually played a full half set last night:

I posted this under "Me and Springsteen in the rain last night."

I was there - it was better than staying in and watching the VMA's. GnR was **interesting** thought.

I think Axl has had one too many hamburgers though...
