Viacom’s powerful tribute to George Floyd
June 2nd, 2020 under Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, VH1/MTV. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday at 5p, for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, several Viacom stations, including Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, and MTV went black. That is the amount of the time that the murdering police officer had his knee on George Floyd’s neck. As Floyd’s life was leaving his body, he screamed, “I can’t breathe.”

Those three words were written on the black screen as we listened to someone struggling to breathe for that amount of time. Sit and listen to each breath, and let your anger take over you. That is why we peacefully protesting in the streets. That is why we are saying never again. This needs to stop. No one deserves to die like that, and no one ever should again.

Floyd’s voice was silenced, ours will speak louder for him. This needs to end now. Let’s work on a solution so that Floyd’s, and all of the innocent people who were murdered by bad cops, deaths were not in vain.

We are all people who bleed red, and we need to stop judging people by their skin color. We need to judge them for who they are as individuals.

Madonna’s tribute to Aretha Franklin is all about Madonna
August 20th, 2018 under Aretha Franklin, Madonna, VH1/MTV. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at the VMAs, they wanted to pay tribute to Aretha Franklin. They thought, who can we get to it do it? Let’s see who is the oldest person here? Steven Tyler, yes he is the oldest but not him. What about Madonna? She is 60 and from Detroit, she would be perfect.

Perfectly awful that is because she made the speech all about her. She revealed that singing (You Make Me Feel) Like a Natural Woman helped her at an audition when she did not have a song prepared. Who cares? It is not always about Madonna. To her yes, to us no.

Madge better hope that Aretha is happy heaven. If not, you know she will be haunting her for that memoriam.

Then again, Madonna might be upset because Aretha’s death upstaged her 60th birthday on Thursday. Madonna probably thought it was going to be all about her but instead it was all about Aretha’s death day.

Remember Martha Quinn?
August 1st, 2018 under Remember?, VH1/MTV. [ Comments: none ]


37 years ago, the music world was rocked by the birth of MTV. Today, to celebrate the day that video killed the radio star, Martha Quinn, who was an original VJ shared this photo of herself raising a glass for the anniversary.

Back then she was just 22 years old and ready for her MTV. Now, she is 59-year-old radio star who hosts I Heart the ’80s weekday mornings from the Bay Area. Therefore, I guess you can say radio killed the video star?

One thing that time has not killed is her looks, she looks better now than she did then.

If you are old enough to play this game, then post your answer in the comments. Seeing MTV for the first time was a pretty big deal for teens back in the day. You will never forget the first video you saw on music television, so what was yours? Mine was Big Country’s In a Big Country. To this day, I still smile when I hear the tune and cry a little when I think the lead singer, Stuart Adamson, is no longer with us.

Backstreet Boys forced to play elevators now?
July 2nd, 2018 under Backstreet Boys /Aaron Carter, VH1/MTV. [ Comments: none ]


Even though the Backstreet Boys are releasing new music and have their own Vegas residency, they were seen performing at a place much less glamorous than Sin City. They did a concert in a very small venue as in an elevator. So is this where their career is heading?

Before you think they are going down, it was all on the up and up because it was for a TRL bit. But who would not want to see the boyband in a little moving metal box? Talk about intimate. Especially, when it is crowded!

Who asked for the return of Jersey Shore?
November 28th, 2017 under VH1/MTV. [ Comments: none ]


There have been a lot of shows that people want to see revived, but I don’t think anyone was begging for the return of Jersey Shore. I guess I am wrong because MTV announced that, “We’re back bitches.” That’s right Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio,” Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino are all back for Jersey Shore Family Vacation. What that means we will find out soon enough. If we care.

BTW Why is this airing on MTV and not VH1 because haven’t they aged out of MTV. I mean those of them that are parents, all had their kids when they weren’t teens, and that makes them like old in the world of MTV. Right?
