I’m nostalgic about the VMAs.
Probably because I’m of the first generation of MTV’ers when music videos were so new that the few that had been made were on constant repeat, mixed in with old footage of live bands, many of whom didn’t have the “look” to be popular in the age of music videos.
Video really did build the radio star.
At first, watching the VMAs 2013 me feel really old. So I switched it off and went to bed.
But I felt differently this morning after pressing play on the DVR. I see art (and artistic expression) made by a new generation. Isn’t is typical for older generations to find fault with younger artists?
I totally understand, but I love art, especially when it provokes.
Of course, Miley needs to stick her tongue back in her mouth. It isn’t lady-like, but I’m sure that’s not what she was going for.
Gaga was great.
Kanye? I liked him.
And Justin. I mean … JUSTIN! Truly the best in the business.
And the fashion did not disappoint, if you’re looking at it from the point of view it was set in.
My favorite, just a smidge more wonderful than Katy Perry’s costumey cat dress, and Ellie Gouding’s spikes, which she said” felt quite good… like acupuncture,” was Rita Ora.
Twitter made fun saying she “stole her dress from a muppet.”
I thought she was gorgeous.
What were your thoughts? I know you have many!
