All You Need To Know About The Video Music Awards In One Award

You will notice today there is no winners list of Video Music Awards. That is because all of the awards are pre-determined and invented with the goal of getting performers to show up and hopefully perform. I have talked about this before so feel there is no need to go into it all again. For those teens out there who still think the awards are not rigged or manipulated let us take a look at one category from last night. Best Rock Video. There were some strong nominations with Imagine Dragons, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys and Linkin Park. All of them had pretty decent years and any of them would have been a good choice to win the award. So, who actually won the award for Best Rock Video? Lorde. Yep. The show wanted her to come, but there were no categories they could slide her into that had already not been promised. There were no more new awards they felt they could invent for this edition so they stuck her in the Best Rock Video category and surprising no one in her camp, she won. Royals is a good song, although at this point I don't ever want to hear it again. It is not a rock song. It is not even close. Lorde showed up though and her bff Taylor Swift was there so Lorde had to get an award.

I tried to watch this shit last night to take part in the snarkfest. I got through the pre--show and didn't make it 5 minutes into the show because the first performance was so horrid.
Pop music is so embarrassing even the people who actually do it and sat in the audience listening to it thought it was garbage. I wouldnt sit through 15 minutes of Beyonce gin if she handed me $1 million. Been there done that in Super Bowl.

Heres what you need to know, enty. No one gives a shit!

Brenda L said...

I don't know about you guys, but I am totally convinced that Beyonce and Jay Z are the real deal, that they truly love each other, and it's just a beautiful life. Now....since they have convinced me, will they PLEASE GO AWAY?

so dam bitter. get over it entry

QueenAnne Guido said...

I agree with Enty. Not rock. Not even close.

I know/n plenty of petulant teens. She should win for that!

FrenchGirl said...

The one and only reason to see VMA and who deserved many awards was Beyoncé's show .She's a slayer.The others were shitty next to her

derek harvey said...

The announcer Trey Songz didn't even announce The Black Keys name correctly--he called them The Black Eyes!!

derek harvey said...

I agree French Girl--she was great. The Rita Whora and Iggy Azelia duet was embarrassing---even Miley was rolling her eyes during it ----Ariana Grande ha talent but her songs are shit!

I wish I could have a time machine so I could fast forward to 2024 and see where both Taylor and Lorde are with their careers. I see Lorde as a sort of Joan Armatrading type, touring small venues with a committed fan base. Taylor is harder. She's rocking the good-girl, slightly asexual vibe, so any scandal surrounding her will shake her image that much more. At least she can write songs, so if it all goes to hell she can still write songs for other people.

derek harvey said...

oh and don't even get me started about Nicki Minajs song basically proclaiming your nobody in society unless your a chic with a big fat ass or a dude with a dick the size of an Anaconda!...smh..nice msg for the youth...

derek harvey said...

Taylor Swift performance was good as well actually

Ay said...

@Sandy

I agree I could barely stand to watch the pre show. Pop music is supposed to be fun but I was bored the whole time.

@Derek

Yep Bey slayed. Iggy and Rita got on by blowing the right people. The end. I want Ariana to make an R&B album. I can't stand to watch her prance around in a onesie looking like a toddler smdh And I was confused on who the Black Eyes were as well lmao

rosie riveter said...

Hahahahaha
+1

derek harvey said...

@AY---so disrespectful to the black keys---you could tell Nina Dobrev was thinking "um should I correct him"---but didn't---Lorde should have said something as well but shes just a very young girl

Bee Haven said...

@Derek : blasphemy! The Black Keys are awesome.

Unknown said...

Although pretty cool of Miley to put the homeless teen up there....um stop trying to make yourself cry on camera and wiping away fake tears...like what he said was moving to you. You were not crying...thanks to high def we all can see that. Just like we can see the Kardashian-west/Jenner trash texting and tweeting while there was a moment of silence for Ferguson and Michael Brown...

derek harvey said...

@unknown--I agree---still tolerate Miley a little more for at least doing something different. What was the point of even having 3 seconds of silence anyways?

Renoblondee said...

Jessie J also killed it!

Sarah said...

Ariana sings ok but I'm over her sexy baby act and I want to punch her every time she does a backflip to get photographed on her "good side"

Sarah said...

She's so over and doesn't know it yet. I don't know anyone that's excited about her. File her next to Lady Gaga, the schtick is old

Sarah said...

This will be unpopular but I thought Beyonce's whole performance was just about her telling the narrative she wants out there.
She shouldn't even dignify the speculation about her marriage, but she devoted her video vanguard to convincing us they had problems but are happy blah blah blah.
Oh, and she's a sexy feminist stripper mom. Girl power!

Ay said...

@Sarah

Who's over? That could apply to so many lol

rajahcat said...

in complete agreement here

giant eye roll

that is not a rock song or video

rajahcat said...

Jesse J always kills it

totally outclassed the others she sang with

rajahcat said...

Arianna is a little troll

rajahcat said...

yep @ Derek that's what I said to my daughter......

Seven of Eleven said...

I hope they didn't choose "Royals" over "Radioactive". The latter had more gleeful animosity in one minute than Royals' tweaker boxers who like swimming and TV. :/

New Life and Attitude said...

And this is why I don't watch any awards shows. We accidentally were flipping channels a few times and saw a few bits and pieces - but mainly of Beyonce because that biotch was on the screen forever.

FS said...

Beyonce's performance bored me. Her whole existence is beginning to bore me. Why does she always have to perform in a high cut leotard and fishnet stockings? Is she too insecure to wear a miniskirt, or even pants?

Perhaps a few of the ladies who performed last night should take a look at Tina Turner, Sade, Anita Baker and even early Whitney videos and see that talent and class can actually sell records without prancing around in your underwear. I only half watched the VMA's, and I just felt tired when it was over, it was all so samey and unoriginal.

audrey said...

Why is MTV still handing out awards for videos when they aren't played on that station any longer?

derek harvey said...

@Audrey---really good question

Audrey, does MTV even play music videos? Thought it's all shit reality shows about pregnant drug-addled teens who go on to do anal porn. (Not all at the same time though, that'd be gross).
