Miley Cyrus on MTV Video Music Awards – The Video and My Opinion

So I did not watch the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards last night – but I now have my DVR set to record it so I can see all of it (and forward past what I don’t want to watch). What I heard so much of this morning was Miley Cyrus’ performance on the show so I had to find video of it and see what the fuss is about....more

How MTV Led Me to Tulsa, Oklahoma

I was one of those savagely underprivileged children who did not have cable growing up. Thankfully, I had grandparents who did, and it was at their house where I would gorge myself on Nickelodeon shows like "Mr....more

MTV Without the Music is Just TV, Right? Wrong.

Oh, MTV. MTV, MTV, MTV.I’m tempted to start out saying that I’m sad MTV isn’t what it used to be and that I miss the videos. However, there are three problems with that. Look at me, getting all three-point thesisy over here. Putting that MA to work once again....more

MTV Introduces Generation Cryo

MTV Networks is at it again with their provocative original series. The network that hasn't had the best TV ratings nationwide, is struggling to keep viewers glued to their original programming and with a younger demographic, keeping the attention of "tweens," is proving to be difficult for the once mega network. In an effort to capture more of an audience, the network has just announced their plans to move forward with a new original series, Generation Cryo. The new unscripted series will follow a 17 year old girl who was conceived via a sperm donor....more

Going To The VMAs: A Night In The Life of Hollywood Housewife

Every year when the MTV Video Music Awards roll around, I get excited to go. And every year, my husband groans and rolls his eyes. It's true, we're decades beyond the target demographic for the VMAs, and we never know all the performing or nominated musical acts.  But it's a fun evening, with great people watching, so we make it almost every year.  My husband produces multiple television shows for MTV, and we usually have decent seats....more

the man in the truck

Blog Directory i got sick of all these websites online that wanted women to comment about their hair or about celebrities like steven spielberg's wife or tom hank's wife. i pushed my computer away and thought to myself how i felt my most comfortable when i was around other people, listening to them talk, but doing stuff on my own. i always tensed up around people, needed to perform, asked myself why i didn't do things like them, even though when i got away from them was glad....more

LFL is Not a Sport! It Is Glorified Sexuality

I think I may have just thrown up a little! I was clicking through the channels and saw an advertisement for this - LFL.  Go ahead, click on it.  I'll wait. OK - you back now.  You see why I'm a little unnerved?  This is programming on MTV!  This is what we want our teenagers watching. ...more

Dear Farrah: Don't leave Sophia.

Dear Farrah, I know you don't know me, and I don't know you. I mean, I've watched you go through your pregnancy on television (16 and Pregnant), then watched you parent your beautiful daughter, again on television through the show Teen Mom, so it feels like somehow I know you. I don't always agree with you, but I appreciate your spirit and tenancity.  ...more
