so the vmas were tonight and i watched it to support fall out boy and a couple other artists i liked. and there were a HUGE number of issues i had with this years vmas:
firstly, WHY DOES EVERYONE HATE ROCK SO MUCH??? during the chester bennington eulogy, jared leto asked the crowd to stand up in honor of chester and anyone who was struggling with the difficulties that he was going through. AND NO ONE STOOD UP. SO JARED HAD TO ASK TWICE. THIS WAS A MEMORIAL FOR ONE OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN ROCK AND POP-PUNK. IT WAS RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL. ALSO, THEY PUT A FUCKING AD RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE EULOGY. THAT LEGEND DID NOT DESERVE THAT LEVEL OF DISRESPECT. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU LIKED LINKIN PARK OR NOT; CHESTER BENNINGTON WAS A GENIUS AND WAS A LIFE LOST TOO EARLY.
furthermore, to top it all off, they never even mentioned the Best Rock Video category. why have it if you won’t even acknowledge it?????
!! this next part is not for members of the clique that get angry easily. i love twenty one pilots too. i have a whole other blog dedicated to them. this is just my personal opinion. !!
ok, so both top and fob were nominated for Best Rock Video (top for heavydirtysoul and fob for Young & Menace), and SURPRISE, SURPRISE! twenty one pilots won. this angers me so much, it’s not even funny. here’s why:
• top is on hiatus right now. they’re not even active. no new singles, no album, no interviews, no nothing.
• fob on the other hand is going on tour, releasing music, doing interviews, doing radio shows, doing promo, etc.
• top didn’t even show up. neither tyler nor josh showed up. they didn’t say anything about the award at all, and [as of right now] they haven’t thanked their fans for the award. they never acknowledged it.
• fob went to the vmas, hyped up the award, pete presented, they thanked their fans, they brought the llamas, they attended the red carpet, THEY BROUGHT THE LLAMAS.
• top’s music video didn’t even have a meaning. it was literally just “tYjO dEfEaTeD bLuRrYfAcE!!1!!!1!”
• fob’s music video spoke volumes about abuse.
• heavydirtysoul (the song) came out 2015.
• young & menace came out 2017.
AND NOW. THE #1 REASON I AM ANGRY THAT TOP WON INSTEAD OF FOB: top has won the same amount of awards that fob won in TWO YEARS that fob won in 16 YEARS. most of which, were won for the pure fact that most of the clique just mindlessly voted for top, regardless of whether or not they deserved it.
again, i am a huge fan of both bands, but i HIGH KEY feel that Fall Out Boy DESERVED that award (if it was not apparent in my rant).
