The 2016 VMAs (Video Music Awards) are on MTV tonight, and I am having a really hard time caring. Granted, this might be because I’m “just too old” for that sort of thing, but honestly I feel as if it’s more than that. I am not ashamed to admit that I listen to a top 40 radio station most of the time, and so it definitely is not something that can be blamed on not liking the music. The VMAs honestly just aren’t what they used to be.
Today’s VMAs seem to be less about the performances, or even the awards, and more about the drama surrounding them. “What crazy thing is Miley going to wear?” or “Who is going to call out who on stage?” are the questions that seem to top our minds when we think about MTV’s awards show. I remember a time, though, when the main question on my mind was, “I wonder who is going to have the most over the top performance?”
What do you think? Do you remember how the VMAs used to be? Do you still watch them? Let us know on our Twitter or Facebook. Until then, I’ll leave you with a video from the time when the VMAs were actually worth watching.
