Really, America? This is what we have to pass off as entertainment, because the only people buying records are like, 14 years old? Justin Bieber is the AMA’s Entertainer Of The Year.
I don’t know what that says the most about – America, the people who actually watch and vote for the AMA’s (which aren’t much, allegedly, as the telecast dropped down to record lows), or…I don’t know. SERIOUSLY? Justin Bieber? What the hell has he contributed to the modern canvas, except for one more teen pop star with terrible songs lip-synching and being trained to dance like a monkey. There have been amazing music acts this year – Sleigh Bells, Janelle Monae, hell, even NELLY – and Justin Bieber is the entertainer of the year?
There’s already a ceremony committed to giving the most soulless, money-grubbing entertainers awards that they didn’t really deserve, based off of album sales – it’s called The Grammys. We don’t need any more of them.
I hope you enjoy your awards. Your meaningless, hollow awards. I’m going to sit here and listen to the Velvet Underground and remember a time when music was actually good and not just a fashion statement.
