Yes, you just read that right??!!!! I receive so many press releases but this one….I have to make time to share. Kanye West receives the video vanguard award from MTV. I can’t believe what I am reading. The music business has just solidified the fact that pop music is completely in the shitter.
LOS ANGELES, CA – August 25, 2015 – MTV is set to award Kanye West with the VMA’s highest honor, the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award,” for his career-spanning groundbreaking videos, legendary VMA performances, and continued impact on music, art, fashion, and culture. The award will be presented during the 2015 “MTV Video Music Awards” that will air live on Sunday, August 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
What a joke! OMG. We should never be allowed to use Michael Jackson and Kanye West in the same sentence….ever. Plus, we only saw a dark stage, smoke and heard a few words from Kanye West’s last performance. Remember? Last time he performed there were so many swear words in the song they had to bleep it all out!
Come on, there are so many other artists that are deserving of this accolade that aren’t assholes and haven’t interrupted other recipients while accepting awards on the MTV stage. Please. To top it off, we have Miley Cyrus hosting the show. I am embarrassed for you. I mean really? Didn’t you see what happened with her wrecking ball, tongue wagging, flat ass gyrating embarrassing performance a.k.a. the MTV Circus?
So, I am going to tune in like I always do and will be sure to rip everyone a new one via twitter during the award show this weekend. Follow me if you want to know about great tunes, iconic rock n’ roll legends and people with real damn talent.
That sh*t cray.
PS: I know this post is going to give MTV more viewers than they deserve.
**Stay snarky my friends!**
