Didn't Beyonce date Justin T for like a minute when all these groups were first starting? To me the last MTV awards that was good was the one Chris Rock hosted. I will wait and watch the clips on Youtube.

JK, i love you. we are like Twins, beyonce and JT are the easiest way to get me to not watch the VMA's when they are delayed 2 weeks later in Australia.

soariam - thanks for trying to explain. It just seems to me like the whole grammy thing of best record, best album. i'm thinking i'm way too old and too white to understand. i just dance to what i like and let my kids laugh at me (granted they're 5 and under so they laugh at anything).
JK-Boogie JK-Boogie 9 years
It is amazing how I used to love both Bouncy and JT but now I hate them both and equally. Maybe it is the lack of integrity, equally suck ass songs or the fact that with them both being back in the limelight with the same haircuts/colour (JT&Bouncy) predictable use of the word sex in the title to sell records (JT) predictable rap boyfriend appearing in the video to give the song so credibility (BK) impossible to copy dance routine (BK) makes it feel like groundhog day. I long for a day were lyrics ment something and were memorable...who wants to sing "Go ahead, be gone with it" 6 times in a chorus? Not me. Who wants to dance like Whitney on crack like Bouncy? Not me. What happened to re-inventing yourself like Madonna or Britney (in her heyday) Not me folks NOT for me. I am looking outside the box for my music which is why I have adopted James Morrison as my pet sound of the summer.."you give me something" check it out great track. It's not wonder music does not sell well anymore if Deja Vu and Sexy Back is the best we are offered this summer.

hahaha JK with the "ridiculous dance routine" comment. I know she was maybe trying for something tribal, but it came out all weird.

I'm not a fan of Beyonce. I refuse to like anybody that wears fur. She does look pretty in the pic though.
JK-Boogie JK-Boogie 9 years
Yes Bouncy is gorgeous but I am SOOO bored of her I can not stand it anymore...every time she comes on the radio or TV I reach for the power button...I am not going to be sucked in this time..OOOOOOOHHHH NNNNOOOOO
JK-Boogie JK-Boogie 9 years
If Beyonce's video is anything to got by I believe the VMA's should have a A&E team near by incase she does herself an injury with her ridiculous dance routine

"Meh" is kind of like saying "whatever, doesn't excite me". Sometimes sound effects are easier for me because I just don't feel like typing the whole thing out.

Crazylady... if i'm correct... R & B (Rythym and Blues), Rap, Hip Hop, Freestylin', Scratching and even fashion is incorporated in the realm of Hip Hop (Hip Hop is then whole culture). Rap and R&B are both genres of music under the Hip Hop realm. Rap is faster than R&B. R&B is usually characterized as more melodic, if you will, but some R&B songs have some fast beats. Does this clarify some of your questions? If anyone else has something to add or correct, please feel free to do so.
