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.
2015 Video Music Awards, Kanye West
**Stay snarky my friends!**
Can’t stand the guy. Don’t watch the show. I am not for sure.
What a joke!
Sad but true!
Some of his early stuff was pretty good. He sure doesn’t deserve this award. I really loved Michael Jackson and he’s probably rolling over in his grave on this one.
Right? I was going to write that. Happy you did!
Wow! That’s all I gotta say.
YOU ARE SO SNARKY. SAYING IT LIKE IT IS. YOLU SHOULD WRITE MORE ABOUT THE MUSIC SCENE BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU KNOW YOUR MUSIC. I LOVE SEVENDUST AND SO DO YOU.
YES! Love me some sevendust, shinedown, godsmack… good bands with talent!!!
Mel. You are really fired up about Kanye West. I think you don’t like him and you have made it very clear that you don’t. I am sure you are helping MTV with this post. Free advertising and they probably will appreciate it in their own way. You are spot on on this one.
HAHAH! Yes I am very fired up about it. It just makes me so mad!!!!!!
He’s crazy! Why would they do this except for great publicity? Hate this guy.
Right? I think we all do. LAME
I’m pretty open about music and love all different styles and sounds but I just do not understand this guy’s appeal. I mean, if there’s one thing the Grammys taught us this year, it’s that he CANNOT carry a tune to save his life! And it’s super disappointing that a guy that uses auto-tune as much as Kanye does can win a Michael Jackson award.
I couldn’t agree more! Sad but true. So sad. Thanks for the comment!
I love music from all genre’s BUT….Kanye West’s music is not what I listen too. What kind of a decent person steals someone else’s thunder at an awards event, then he has the audacity to say someone else should have won the award. That guy is an asshole!
He should get awards for being THE BIGGEST ASSHOLE.
Yes he should! What a joke? Thanks for the comment.BTW – I guess you are voting for him for president?? LOL
