MTVs Are Becoming Empty-Vs


I tried watching the MTV musical awards last night, well aware that my own general taste in pop music does not entirely mesh with the offerings on display. Except for towering appearances by Rihanna and a reminder from Christina Aguilera (pictured) that she really has the pipes, the broadcast was flat and un-entertaining. Host Russell Brand was clueless, Britney a near-non-entity, and the Jonas Brothers’ fifteen minutes are almost up. MTV needs to take a hard look at this event, which makes the Oscars and Emmys seem scintillating by comparison.
