2007 MTV VMA "highlights"

Yes, yet another year passes us by where less and less music is shown on the "Music Television" network. Here is the short list of what I found to be the "high" points - or to be more accurate, low points, which have made me ashamed of watching this travesty.

Here it goes in no particular order:

1) I liken Sarah Silverman's "humorous" shtick to kicking an injured dog repeatedly, just because you can. In other words, completely unfunny and old.

2) Britney Spears is better looking than she has looked in past months, but her choice of dress was wholly inappropriate. That sad attempt at choreographed dance moves was about as active as a senior's water aerobics class at the local pool. She walked from one part of the stage to another, then back. All of this set to the least convincing lip-syncing in years. Even 50 Cent looked completely confused by the entire routine.

3) Kanye West is not only a sore loser, he beats the race card. Expect whatever credibility he has to be completely done away with when he returns to the VMAs some day. Kanye, many more talented people than you have never won an award in their life, let alone be nominated. It is pure smug, self-disillusionment to think that anyone will honestly listen to your comments and agree that, you, a millionaire musician hasn't "gotten a break." 14:59... and counting.

4) Kid Rock and Tommy Lee get into a brawl. Do I hear crickets chirping?

I think that this entire award show can be summed up with one simple word: hype. MTV hyped this as Britney Spear's comeback and advertised this as some sort of spectacular event. It turns out that it was one of the worst they've ever had in the 23 years they've been at it.
