madonna 50: charliemc
Still being the pop whore, I couldn't resist the circus-like spectacle of the MTV Video Music Awards last night. From Madonna's puzzling/droning 'tribute' to Michael Jackson and the amazing performance that followed to the obligatory awards for Brit and Green Day and the annual idiocy by Kanye West, it did not disappoint.

Listen up, Kanye (like you ever would). I agree that it's close to obscene for Taylor Swift to win a moonman (hey, how long did it take Britney to win her first?), but nobody gives a baboon's butt what you think.

Well, actually it's a win-win for both MTV and Kanye. I'm pretty sure they put him up to the whole thing, because now everybody's talking about their tired awards again. And if Kanye hurries and gets a remix cd out in the next few weeks, he'll go to the top of the charts. The VMAs are all about offending folks, including the fans. Why else would they have emcees like Jamie Foxx and Russell Brand? (I couldn't help throwing Jamie in there after what he did to the Backstreet Boys back in 2001. I can forgive, but I won't forget.)

Bad behavior is often rewarded. It will be interesting to see if Serena Williams ends up suffering for hers the other night. While I think the footfault at that point in the match was absolutely ludicrous, I wouldn't want Serena pointing a tennis racket menacingly in my direction! And she certainly showed no contrition during her appearance at the VMAs last night--just the opposite.

Contrition? Most of these people have never heard of the word.

Well, I'm off to see if I can stay awake for yet another Roger Federer win at the US Open. Yawn. (Is Mary Carillo actually surprised that he likes watching himself on the big screen during the re-plays? Nah.)

ETA: Hey, welcome brushed_velvet and byeblackbird to my flist!

Good God, your entries ROCK! I forgot just how ENTERTAINING you are when you blog!!! (I'm sooooo very glad you're back. Let me just say that again.)

You are so right about the VMAs! I was boiling over the Kanye and Taylor thing. (Whether she deserved to win is another story, of course...)

And I love that you're still bringing up Fox and The Boys from 2001. Because all these years later it still bugs! (heh)

Anyway, as always, it's your job to keep me amused. Hell, it's your job to keep me entertained. So keep it comin'!

"And if Kanye hurries and gets a remix cd out in the next few weeks, he'll go to the top of the charts." Yes indeed, bad behavior is very often rewarded.

I didn't watch the VMA's (NFL football was on) but so often the language/innuendo is such that it's not appropriate for children so I couldn't have watched if I had wanted to. I did have the opportunity to watch that KW/TS snippet online yesterday but chose instead to merely read about it because I didn't think I could handle watching such an uncomfortable and idiotic situation. Oy. :(

You just might be right: the producers may have put him up to it;I mean,what could be a better ratings-booster than that? Gets people talking around the water cooler,right? Seems like society can't get enough of less-than-stellar behavior and it's very maddening,in my opinion. That's why I am not much of a reality show watcher either: it's all so contrived and absurd! "The Biggest Loser" is my only exception,and I am excited the new season begins tonight! YAY! ;)

Have a good day,Marilyn! ♥

Yay, new season of 'Biggest Loser'! I love it! I'm glad the coaches are working together this season . . . that should be interesting.

Every year I say I'm going to start working out when the season starts and see where I end up by the finale . . . hehehe.

I am so jaded, that I tend to always lean to -- oh that was set up .. for such dramas

Nods interesting about the Serena thing. I do not follow tennis like you do; so my thoughts are I am sure different.

What I see is a person who is not happy, is tired, wants something different in her life....

Serena is interesting. Part of what makes her 'different' in tennis is definitely her race. There are very few African Americans in the tennis world. But more of it is just her personality. She just doesn't want her whole world to be tennis. And yet she gets constantly criticized for not concentrating enough of JUST TENNIS.

I think the recent pressure for her to be more, to win more majors, to win more titles, is what we saw during that match. She really *DOES* care, but she refuses to make it everything.

Well, heck, Kim Clistjers quit the game so she could be a wife and mommy. Then she comes back and wins the US Open.

I guess you can have a great tennis career *and* a life. (I guess . . .)
