So, I dvr’d the MTV VMAs, so I could go through a lot of garbage to grab a few great things. A few things that I enjoyed: Sam Smith was outstanding, as usual. I’ve liked him as an artist since the beginning. Happy for Ariana Grande and she’ll be a star for a while. Miley and the homeless guy and their cause was a nice touch. Happy for Lorde, but as much as I like her, she is NOT rock, but then again that rock category is filled with stuff that I wouldn’t consider real rock. People want to call pop bands that they think are hip, rock bands, but they are NOT. Beyonce and her performance was great and expected. I wouldn’t say she’s the greatest living entertainer nor a queen, but talented, especially considering the landscape of talent anymore and what I mean by that is the talent that gets pushed. There’s A LOT of talent around. Most, not all, but most of the rest is just more disposable junk on the VMAs. It’s sweet and satisfies some for a while and then you throw it away for what you want next. Award shows can be entertaining, but since the beginning of time, they are what I like to call, fucky. It’s like if you were in a room in 1984 with Lemmy from Motorhead and George Michael from Wham and you told everyone that George was rock. WTF!?!
