They're both nasty, they just have lots of money,so that makes it okay I guess.

do people still watch music videos?

more fuss about nothing. Miley's "flash" must have been pretty lame. their "spat" is just made up garbage. and Kanye for President would be the final nail in the coffin of US democracy.

MTV used to be THE channel for all the great music and the respectable artists. Look now, its become a garbage channel with garbage artists with despicable and childish attitudes. /care

An embarrassment of biotches?

Also - no photo, then it didn't happen.

Wasn't this last year's headline? And the year before? And before that?

its become a garbage channel with garbage artists with despicable and childish attitudes.

In their defense, they can only deal with what they have to work with.

papigiulio: Agreed. I still remember when MTV started off, more or less, and it was fun to sit and actually watch the channel for a few hours, see some great artistry and creativity. Now it is just crap, and you can tune in to your favourite artists through other means if you still watch music videos.

MT WHAT ?

The entire thing is rehearsed

Miley Cyrus is a self-proclaimed (and this as the first time I ever heard the term) "pan-sexual", meaning she's attracted to anyone who wants to have sex with her, be they men, women, straight, gay, bi, lesbian, trans-sexual, etc, etc.

Too bad they don't have the "I'm a loser" award, or the "My music sucks" award, or the "I can't rap and I'm not lyrical so I'll just talk about sex and dress skanky" award. Because if they did, then they'd all be winners!

It's amazing what winds up in the "artist" category these days. And these are the winners!? Imagine what the losers must be like...

Can an awards ceremony top the VMA's for hideous self obsessed vulgarity. It's a seemingly endless talent vacuum.

Cyrus announced at the end of the show that her new album is available online for free.....And appropriately dressed...

These people are just disgusting. The fact that they represent the US in certain aspects is an embarrassment.

US has some 'gems' Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart to name but two.

Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa - Something's Got A Hold On Me (WOW!) @ Echoplex 9-19-11 ......

Why is this even remotely "news"???

1 ( +3 / -2 )

What a pack of bores.

I think the consensus is these "awards" need to be binned, this stuff is shite!

Cyrus closed the show at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles with a performance, which started with the line: “Yeah, I spoke pot.”

Tell me, how exactly do you speak pot?

What is so depressing is that MTV still is the benchmark when breaking international artists, why do these awards ceremonies sink so low?

Taylor Swift felt it necessary to flaunt an 'entourage' montage of musically meaningless models. Cyrus, cynically contrived to the extent of toe curling embarrassment. Yet I watched from beginning to end, never learn...

MTV started off back in 1981 with it's first song "Video killed the Radio Star", but today it seems like the Video Stars have killed the music.

True degenerates as this the country's role models.

Flashing a single breast is pathetic. If you've got it, and you want us to know you've got it, then show us.

Otherwise, keep it (them) to yourself.

Hi Lucabrasi, apparently there is a pre-VMAs full naked selfie out and about, I have male cousins in various stages of dribbling and frothing at the mouth..........so easily pleased...

I grew up heavy into hip hop from the 80s and onward. Looking at the hip hop nominees, hip hop may officially be on its last leg. Kendrick Lamar may be one of the last true hip hop artists but even he gets into some corny singing sometimes. Fetty Wap is a singer and shouldn't be considered hip hop.

I don't know why there have to be so many entertainment awards shows anyway. What other industry feels the need to pat itself on the back in public repeatedly year after year after year? How insecure are you? Strange cult of celebrity, I guess.

Huh. I didn't know VMA was still going on. I thought it had died off.

No big thing. Just rich brats giving meaningless shiny things to each other.

Found a page with gifs (US Magazine). No, we're laughing at you, not with you.

MTV used to be THE channel for all the great music and the respectable artists.

Since when? Artists became respectable after they left MTV, but before and during no, they're like any other artists today, trying to make names for themselves and going to MTV for exposure

My my, what people have to do to stay in the limelight.

Man, I guess you've been out of the States for a couple decades. MTV no longer broadcasts musical content except from 4am to 8am.

It's actually a good summary of what's wrong with "modern" society. Personal liberty is one thing, but debauchery is yet another.

Not really. And as far as Kanye West once again making an ass of himself, that has nothing to do with "personal liberty." As for debauchery, that was just embarrassing rather than debauched and nothing you wouldn't be surprised to see in Roppongi any given weekend night.
