That was ridiculuos. But I couldn't care less about that. Only killing all those awful rappers and those poppy-rocky annoying teens.

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.

Yep-that was shown in that medley .

I would imagine it was a good performance-sure sounded like such from the snippet I saw.

i have the mp3 of that somewhere... bruce & the wallflowers doing one headlight.

bruce put jacob to shame. it sounded like the song should have been his.

springsteen opened the VMA's just a few years ago when The Rising was out... played the title track from one of the museums on 5th avenue, i do believe (show was at radio city)

i'm sure if u2 wanted to be on the show this year they could have been... for some reason they chose not to.

*edit- bruce performed the rising at the 2002 VMA's from outside the Museum of Natural History in NYC. jimmy fallon hosted that year, and a rehashed version of GNR closed the show.
