The Day The Music Video Died

November 17, 2008 / Posted by:

MTV can now officially change their name to DumbBitchesGettingDrunkAndActingWhory Television, because TRL, the only show that sort of showed music videos, has been buried. TRL’s 2-hour funeral aired last night with performances by Sasha Fierce and the Backstreet Boys. Now where else can you watch 15-seconds of the latest videos and Mimi having a breakdown live on TV? Seriously, TRL was made just so that Mimi could ride the crazy rainbow train in front of all of us.

I’ll also miss all the tweens going into seizures from being so close to the Jonas Brothers. When I used to work in the Times Square area, I used to walk down there, grab a pizza slice from Sbarro and watch all the crazy tweens going into seizures over Hilary Duff or fucking whoever. It was better than the zoo!

MTV can continue to show reality shows featuring wasted skanks as long as they leave Vh1 Classics ALONE. They better not even think of touching that shit. Leave Vh1 Classics alooooooneeee.

Below is the Backstreet Oldies performing “I Want It That Way” during last night’s finale. I wish the camera people focuses on the crazy fangirls more. And Carson Daly really needs to resurrect and host a new “Tales from the Crypt.”
