A Review of the VMAs

First off let me start by saying that I didn't watch the VMAs. I didn't know they were on; I had to have my hair done; I'm kind of going through some stuff right now. Don't judge. Don't hate me. Don't hate anyone, just Love. We only get one chance to live in this world, so we might as well do it right.

Secondly, I heard TWO things after the fact. 1) Kanye West yonk yonk wawawawa really good new song. 2) Robyn performed. I will now discuss these in reverse order.

Assuming YouTube didn't take it down yet, here is a video of someone's television watching the VMAs watching Robyn perform. It's a special remix version by some Mickey Mouse looking thing that you are welcome to read about for yourself.



What did you notice about this clip. Oh yeah, Dancing on My Own is not 17 seconds long. Maybe it's just a fluke because some fanatic YouTuber missed part of it. NOPE. The actual VMA website only boasts a slightly longer clip. It's fair to assume this is literally all they played on TV.

But wait, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Linkin Park rocks Griffin Park in seven minutes. Ksschht *blang*

Now, onto my second point. Kanye West.

Mad dudes on the Internet are saying that this is good. Let me make one thing clear: it is. However, Kanye West has a line in it about taking a picture of his genitals and mailing it to someone on Urban Chat. I'm embellishing, but not by much. I believe that Kanye West takes himself seriously, but I'm not sure that his lyrics always reflect this.

If YouTube takes down these clips, I will literally delete everything in the entire world.



I listened to a few clips of some of the other performances, but I don't know why. Again, you can access these via the VMA website.

Synopsis:

Eminem is back.
Rihanna's hair is no longer black.
Justin Bieber has a knack
for laying the mack
on teens, but it seems
He's just a squeaky Usher.
Drake is running out of tricks
But You Fancy's a crusher.
The guy from Gym Class Heroes can probably rap.
Nicki Minaj should stay off the map.
MTV let her in to keep Wayne happy.
The Swift song was sappy
Remarkably, though, honest.
Ke$ha deserved best artist.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
