MTV Awards May Be Toned Down

So does this mean Johnny won't have anything to write about this year? See his 2001, 2002, and 2003 coverage

they've already struck the first blow... beanie man's been cancelled due to threats of protest from gay rights groups...
http://www.nme.com/news/109654.htm

i'm not familiar with any of the songs where he was gay bashing, but an ex roommate of mine tended bar at a reggae/dancehall club, and beanie man was some of my favorite stuff they played there... (check out the track "sim simma"... superfly, ass shakin' goodness my friends)

anyway, it looks to me like mtv's got a policy similar to the NBA's... if yr a superstar like shaq/eminem or iverson/guns&roses, then you get a lot more slack than say a beanie man/eduardo najera when it's time for the penalties to be handed out...

Eminem = white
G&R = white
Beanie Man = not so white

Just sayin'.

I'm not saying I think it was ok to have Eminem or any other hateful people on, because it's not, but I totally applaud their decision to cancel Beenie Man. He's unapologetically hateful. He sings about how his dream is "to execute all the gays." I don't care how danceable his rhythms are, that's just horrible.

Don't these people ever think, "Why am I so obsessed with queers?"

I absolutely agree. Hateful sick individual.

You're asking them to THINK?? Fuck, you're demanding!
But, as you pointed out "The lady doth protest too much." Hmmm...

i watched parts of the awards yesterday, but it was a disappointing experience as i didn't know half of the people that were on stage. aren't they supposed to invite real stars and stuff? i only recognized beyonce and alicia keys. both sported gruesome fashion! alicia wore salmon! what the hell? i had to turn it off right there.

There was no lesbian action, no nakedness, no Britney getting married on stage (as some speculated)... I was even more disappointed than usual.

And yet Johnny somehow managed to turn it into a brilliant article.
