…but let’s take a moment to remember possibly the most famous moment in its once-cool, now-tainted history…
Thirty years later, it still slays the sluts you see on that “award show” these days. Funny how she wore more clothes than most of today’s pop tarts that whored themselves on the VMA stage the past 10 years. And she did all this when such acts were still somewhat taboo, especially done on a public stage–and done by a female artist, mind you. Perhaps keeping one’s clothes on and just straight up sing (without bullshit autotune and back-tracking and no stripped dances and crazy costumes) is now the new taboo?
Smart money says
Icki Garbage Nicki Garbage (that typo STAYS!) will be this year’s “Attention Whore of all Attention Whores”–a title that Miley Cyrus ran away with a year ago. But I have a feeling Taylor Swift may go crazy this time around. She’s the dark horse in the VMAs ongoing pageant of try-hard, manufactured ratchetness!
I’ll be watching “CB4” instead of this trash. There’s not only better music in that movie than at the VMAs, but actual music.
