I watch the VMA's and other award shows to get a better idea of just how bad the industry mainstream has gotten. And uh... it's gotten pretty fuckin bad. But the scary part is knowing that it can always get worse.
Nah it pretty much stays the same. Like pop music hasn't always had controversy attached to it. Thats part of how they sell it. Madonna in particular did shit as controversial as this, more so.
The only reason it bothers me is because she seems dumb. If you listen to her songs lyrics, its a song about dumbness.
