Miley Cyrus is everything that’s wrong with music

I used to love watching MTV when I was a kid. Some of you who are under 30 might not know this, but MTV actually stands for Music Television, and get this, they actually played music videos! Wow, what a concept! Not only that, but sometimes they would actually play talented musicians who didn’t have to act like over-sexed crack whores to sell a CD.

I didn’t watch this years Video Music Awards, and I haven’t in about 10 years or so. I stopped once I saw that talented alternative rock bands were getting short shrift due to the Britney Spears and N’Sync’s of the world. I wanted nothing to do with the pop crap.

Despite not seeing the VMA’s, I heard about them from several coworkers, the news, and the radio. I’m encouraged by the negative reaction from many, but will be discouraged by the legions of imbeciles who will continue to buy her music and watch her stripperfest, I mean concert.

A talented person doesn’t need to strip down to nothing, grind themselves on a man’s pelvis, simulate masturbation with a foam finger, then prance around like a strung-out hooker with their tongue hanging out. No, that’s what the talentless hacks do, not those who actually have something to offer.

You might be reading this, and think I’m some kind of prude, but as anyone who knows me will tell you, I’m far from it. As I said, my biggest problem is with this commercialized dreck actually being given a chance to be showcased, at the expense of actual musicians. My second problem is that something like this would be aired on a basic cable situation that children have easy access to. A show like this on a premium station wouldn’t be a big deal, but on basic cable, it’s a problem.

It’s very troubling when supposed music fans would rather see what looks like a strung-out nympho, rather than an actual, talented act.

Is it just me, or does Miley Cyrus look like an Ethiopian with albinism?
