Diced Pineapples had to win something, right?
I was too busy watching The Bourne Ultimatum for the 24th time to bother with the AMA's
I didn't watch it...but I've lost interest in current music. It seems like it's more about the artist and less about the art. And this is coming from someone who is NOT big into music as it is. I never thought I'd write or say something as pompous as that. The majority of the famous musicians these days are more image-focused. It's the mold of Britney Spears from the late-1990s. Take a cute girl who looks the part and can hold her own singing and turn her into a star. It works because the girls want to be just like her and the guys want to knock the bottom out of her.
"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."

Only music award show worth watching are the CMAs. Since they actually sing their songs.
I used to hate country music, but I've started to enjoy it more and more. The Pop and Hip-Hop nowadays is absolutely terrible.
Pretty much all music today is crap anyways. All of the songs sound the same. Every "rock" band sounds the same and pop music im pretty sure is the same computerized beat crap. The music world needs some real rock stars to come in and just F everything up. I mean some drug addicted booze swelling rock stars. None of these pretty boys like that are out there today.
This is why I stick to jam band tunes and alternative/politically correct hip hop.
Bieber is normally the whipping boy for everyone who craps on "Today's music," but I think Nikki Minaj is the worst out of all of them. She's annoying, her voice is annoying, the way she looks is annoying, with all the cotton candy she puts on her head and 8 jars of makeup she puts on her face, and her music is terrible.
Seriously, watching most of these guys perform reminds me of the old air guitar shows we had in H.S.

... For alternative rock award. Rock, in all its forms, seems to have lost its popularity. There are so few scraps to choose from that they just tossed what they could find into the alternative category, which I think was the only rock award of any kind.

Not all music sucks. Pop music, which Hip Hop has a pop segment now, is targeted based on popular demand and money. They sound like mostly club hits, which I wouldn't be looking for substance in anyway.
Having said that, that's just the music we get force fed on the radio and blasted in stadiums. Hip Hop is international now and indie groups are coming up from everywhere like cults. There's plenty of great music out there if you take the time to look for it coming out now. Shoot, some of these 'billboard hits' every once in a while are pretty cool, so you are kinda a hater if you say they ALL suck. A lot of great songs that will never get radio play. Not sure how much that has changed over the years, but the money being made sure has.
Note: I keep saying this, a lot of the more thought-provoking hip hop from these artists we see every day never makes it to the radio, BET, whatever (but some do). Just go thru some of lil waynes mixtapes, he IS talented
A song me and my old warehouse co-workers like:
Also: Linkin Park ceased being relevant to me when they gave up on being a hip-hop/rock mixture. There's more then enough crappy alternative rock groups out there, why the hell did they believe there needed to be another one.

We don't know what we think, we don't know what we know. All we have to go on, is what we say and what we show...
As far as Bieber goes, I think he is okay. I just think he is being pumped too much by corporations and whatnot. I can't blame them though, the girls love him. Might as well stack that paper.
I only listen to Christian Rap now. I am not going to lie, when I first started it was lame, but now I will put any of them bar-for-bar, and beat-for-beat, with any other rapper out there.
Gone, but not forgotten... RIP RP
I agree that Nicki Minaj is far worse than Bieber. I can't stand her
What a bunch of old farts in here whining about how today's music sucks. "Today's music sucks" is an argument that has only been made by EVERY generation since music's been made.
Flying Vince Lombardi x x x x x x x x x x x Ryan Kerrigan... Funky-style
I didn't watch but saw the headlines on my phone about Bieber. He doesn't bother me. I don't know any of his songs ( I have heard some). I just like that he seems to own it.
You are a star, own it. I saw some interviews with him over the years and he owned it...it was refreshing. All of these folks that come out and act so demure...give me a break. That phony stuff is for the phony people.
He has obviously marketed himself well and from what I understand was an internet sensation before becoming a worldwide star...that kid works hard and deserves his accolades.
EDIT: And Minaj is terrible from the performances I have seen from her and she looks absurd. I know a guy that dates a girl that looks very similar to her. Absurd.
