Britney has one hell of a genius marketing team. While MTV & Brit's managers continue to deny that she will perform, Christina Aguilara released a new track today. Hours later, this video of Britney rehearsing a brand new song has 'leaked'.

But she won't be performing Sunday

When the channel altogether starts putting the importance on music again, the VMAs will follow suit. The VMAs will suck until MTV stops sucking

If I were suddenly magically the boss at MTV...can you say 'complete 100% overhall'?

Busted, Room Raiders, Made, Making The Band, The Hills, Exiled, NEXT, TRL, etc etc etc etc....basically every show on the schedule now...all axed. Cancelled. Gone. History.

I'd initiate a nation-wide search for the best VJs I could find - with actual knowledge of and passion for pop/rock/rap music not just in a current context but in a historical context, articulate speaking ability, and a telegenic personality.

I'd order a raise in the quality of the music we're airing, while staying relevant/current. Arcade Fire/Radiohead/Snow Patrol/Foo Fighters/Feist/Killers/Wilco/White Stripes/Coldplay/Green Day/Imogen/The Muse/Sigur Ros/Travis/Kings Of Leon/Franz Ferdinand/and all of the other good current bands that are talked about on the internet all the time and never seen on so-called music channels. Mixed with videos from 80s and 90s artists that owe a good deal of their fame to what MTV used to be...U2, Madonna, Depeche Mode, REM, Nirvana, Pearl Jam(although they don't have many videos to show), Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Weezer, Rage Against The Machine, RHCP, Alanis Morissette, Tori Amos, etc etc.

When these VJs are hired, I'd initiate around-the-clock videos w/ the VJs hosting, to start with.

Eventually programming would be re-entered into the equation, but all MUSICAL programming - rockumentries, live concerts, unplugged would return with a vengeance, countdowns, etc.

No reality tv. None at all. Not under my watch.

Yep.

I'd basically make it into what VH1 was in the 90s and first year or two of this decade, before they went down the shitter too.
That's how it should be!

Videos. Rockumentaries. Unplugged. Countdowns. Headbanger's Ball. 120 Minutes. News with Kurt Loder and Tabitha Soren.

I would love that too! My mom always makes me jealous when she tells me what MTV was like in the 80s. Now that's my MTV

I'm sorry. They put Kurt in a retirement home in Boca 15 years ago. They'll let him out for the VMA's, though!

My mom does too. She was 21. I wouldn't be born for 7 more years.

I know she said she likes Katy's music, but I wonder if she's ok with Katy murdering her way through such an iconic song. I don't know if Madonna owns the rights to "Like A Virgin", seeing as its one of the few songs of hers that she didn't write.

"Bedtime Story", and then a couple on the first 2 albums, I believe. Oh, and "Papa Don't Preach" was originally written by someone else, but she added lyrics to it, hence the reason it says by "Brian Eliot" Additional lyrics by Madonna in the album jacket.
