I’m still not exactly sure what MTV has to do with music, I think the last music video they played was back in ’97, and the last time they were considered the tastemakers in pop music was about ’92, but, god bless ‘em, they keep putting on their music video award shows and the favorite music artist of young teens everywhere keep on showing up. That latter part means we have to cover it, because they do still bring out the hotties once a year.
This year’s crop of the PG-rated best at the MTV Video Music Awards included Taylor Swift, who stole the show quite a bit in her musical performance, and on the red carpet, Katy Cocktease, Alicia Keys, Emma Watson, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna. I’ll say this for MTV, those are some big gets. Can’t say I own any of their albums, but I do own thoughts of each of them being naughty in the back of my Corolla at the drive-in movie theater that shut down eleven years ago, kind of like MTV itself. Enjoy.
