Last Night MRTV (Music reality Televison) broadcast their Video Music Awards in which they don''t even play videos anymore but anyways, some of today's hit makers were on hand as well as some new faces such as Jessie J who sang songs of past winner's and one of her own. Adele who brought real talent to the award show singing "someone like you" accompanied by just a piano. Lady GaGa with her costume as a man singing "You and I" But one performance that really had me going was Chris Brown ("Yeah 3xs and Beautiful People) he was flying in the air and dancing hard. He defiantly had the best performance of the night. This was a very interesting night as well GaGa came back to present Britney Spears with the Micheal Jackson Video Vanguard award where there was a dance tribute (Freaking Amazing) with kids doing all of her videos complete with costumes,It was a great moment for Britney until she had to add in a introduction for Beyonce where she performed "love on top" It seriously looked like a washed up Vegas act but I guess she had good reason for such but then again her shows always look a bit Kylie Minogue"s "Showgirl" to me any way. So the show ended on a "I don't care note" Note with Wayne and after that it was over. The show was just OK with all the hype and rumors MTV should be thanking the social media (all) for the BS advertisement of such mess. The Channel that stands for MUSIC Television is now a hub for people with no common sense or self worth to go on and make asses out themselves... Just SAYIN!

Wow 10 Years and I am sitting here feeling about the same way I felt that Aug.25Th 2001 maybe even worst. I woke up on that day I believe it was a Sunday and I was so happy because Madonna's "Drowned World Tour" was coming on HBO when I got a Phone call asking if I was OK. Confused about the statement I answered "Yes,I'm fine why do you ask?" "I just saw on the News Aaliyah died in a Plane crash" I gasp and frantically went to MTV (Nothing) kept looking and there on CNN was a picture of a dismembered plane and it stated on the headline "R&B singer Aaliyah dies at 22" My heart fell to the floor and I got just enough air to tell them I would call them back and I locked my door and laid there. I had never lost one of my favorite famous people before I cried to myself for a bout an hour and thought I had thought this in my head or some sick joke but it wasn't the radio was playing all her music. I was OK until they played "journey to the past' and once again I lost it. 18 years old and feeling so hurt. As the years went on I was bothered by this date but not like this year. 10 years it has been and I still feel sadness every time I hear her music or see her videos. I smile anytime I hear "Young Nation" Because it reminds me that she really helped define real feelings of us old enough to remember. It was a great feeling to know that what we thought we were feeling was absolutely the truth... Now 28 I am happy to have her as One of my favorite people and her music is apart of the soundtrack to my life... Thank you Aaliyah for being an original and showing us true talent a standard to truly live by. I miss you Our One In A Million
