    The Video Music Awards are finally upon us! This is one of my favorite awards shows due to the mix of so many different types of genres and people being rolled into one. They took a pretty big downturn in quality over the past few years, but I am really hoping they turn it around this year. It got way to politically correct and just all around too political for my taste. They even renamed the 'Moonman' statue to the 'Moon Person' statue. I'm not quite sure it was a necessary change, but I guess it's good as long as everyone is happy.
