For those of us that grew up in the 80s-90s the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) was something to look forward to. The awards show had all of the fun stuff that the Grammys didn’t and it was always just before school started. The end of summer hurrah, so to speak.
I thought the show back in the day was far more relevant than it is today. An awesome host (Arsenio Hall is the best show host ever, in my opinion), all of the pop stars that made that summer hot and some unexpected hijinks (Anyone remember Howard Stern’s horrible Fartman gag? *facepalm*). Now… I just don’t get it. It seems that every year there has to be something even more shocking than the year before. Maybe it’s because I’m in my late 30s and I just can’t relate anymore but I’m finding the shows far from entertaining, so now I just catch the YouTube highlights.
Did you watch the VMAs? Did you have a favorite moment? Was there a moment you could’ve done without?
