Miley, Kanye, Nicki Minaj, Bieber... there was enough mediocre, soulless crap at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (8/30) to make me pray for nuclear holocaust. I know I sound like an old guy muttering to himself, "Damn kids these days." I'll accept that. I understand I'm out of the target demo. But if you found anything remotely inspiring or quality-filled in the atrocity that was the 2015 VMA's, please seek professional help.

I'll be honest, I didn't watch more than 10 minutes of the VMA's. I was tuned in to Jake Arrieta's no-hitter, only flipping over to MTV during commercial breaks.  Yes, I'm making this declaration - the one where I wish the planet would immediately cease its existence - due to a grand total of 10 minutes of in-and-out viewing.  That's all I really needed to make the determination that this human experiment has bottomed out.  Time to throw up the white flag.  If a Miley/Minaj feud and a weepy Bieber and a babbling, incoherent Kanye is what passes at entertainment these days, it's time to pull the plug.

I'm not here to say that the VMA's were ever high-quality programming.  But back in the day, at least there was the occasional memorable performance (see below).
