i sent in request emails for me to attend the mtv vmas this years.
since it was in new yawk at radio city,
i wanted to go and give a review of my evening.
well i ended up getting no response.
after watching tonight’s broadcast tho…
…i’m kinda glad God let me sit that one out.
was i the only one bored by the night’s festivities?
the only noticeable performances i enjoyed was ariana and jlo.
oh and panic at the disco,
sidebar: i love how nicki tried to act like she was performing live,
when her entire performance was down pre-recorded at world trade.
it’s not like that is in close proximity to to radio city.
my biggest beef of the night tho…
Madonna and her “tribute” to the late,
first of all,
wtf was she wearing?
WTF was she even talking about?
#VMAs: The Queen of Pop @Madonna pays tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin: “I want to thank you, Aretha for empowering all of us. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Long live the queen.” pic.twitter.com/ugdxbr48Gz

she goes on to tell a story how she was a struggling singer,
went to meet up with some producers,
something along the lines of telling them who aretha franklin was,
and singing her way out of a crack house.
after that moment,
she became a star and the rest was history.
there was no speaking of aretha’s life or her legacy.
madonna made it about her,
and if you saw my tweets,
that shit had me a whole vex out here.
i guess i’m glad she didn’t sing anything,
but the fact she did a tribute to herself was disgusting.
i needed the biggest rockette to kick her ass off the stage.
aside from that,
the award showed how we don’t have much star power.
its bad the cameramen really had no a listers to pan too.
it was a toss up of ariana,
i’m glad i came up in an time where big deals attended these events.
as a cub,
i wouldn’t miss a show.
entertainment was always been “my thing”.
i think a part of me tries to be optimistic every year,
but i’m noticing many of our greats sit them out.
let’s hope the bet awards do better next year.
i’ll continue to hold out hope.
