The Good Old Days Of Pop

I heard thru the modern day Grapevine that is Facebook that Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus had an argument were dissing each other at last night’s Video Music Awards hosted by MTV.

Remember when the VMA’s used to be actually hip and trendy, and classy all at the same time?

Can’t say I totally detest the raunchiness. I was listening to Madonna debuting “Like A Virgin” on the 1984 VMA’s simulcasted over Q-105 here in Tampa. I remember thinking to myself, give this song a few weeks and it will go to the top of the Billboard charts, which it did by the end of the year.

Now a days, it seems like the music business is all about getting over other artists, by any means necessary. That’s why you see Miley Cyrus naked or semi-naked on the Internet every time you turn around. That’s why you see violence at some of these award shows.

I miss the days where everybody could just appreciate the artistry. Those days are long gone.
