Video Music Awards
VMA host Sebastian Maniscalco took some heat from Hollywood outlets on Tuesday for making mild jokes during the high profile music award show at the expense of “sensitive” teens in need of “safe spaces.” Of course this “triggered” someone, and Hollywood website Variety published a finger-wagging letter to the comedian for the “callous” jokes.
Who knew that a star of the show GLOW on Netflix was a constitutional scholar? She's not, and yet, actress Alison Brie declared with certainty on the stage of the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards Monday night that what America is doing to immigrants is “unconstitutional and frankly disgusting."
Hollywood will jump at any opportunity to throw a middle finger at conservative policies, especially at immigration reform. Doubling down on it’s message of “Fuck The Wall,” the music industry threw three Grammy awards at a music album featuring the vocal stylings of 53 undocumented immigrants. Of course Billboard Music reported on it with pride.
Rapper Cardi B may or may not be pro-life, but she just used an major music awards ceremony to send a pro-life message.
Cardi B won awards for “Best New Artist,” “Best Collaboration,” and “Song of the Summer” at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Aug. 20. In her remarks, she told critics that working women can pursue their careers and still have a baby.
Actor Kevin Hart co-presented at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) and wasted no time taking a shot at President Trump at the opening - “It’s game day. But don’t worry, at this game, you guys are allowed to kneel. Do whatever the hell you want. I don’t see any old white men anywhere.” He must have missed seeing the members of Aerosmith, including lead singer Steven Tyler!
MTV really wants young people to head to the voting booth in droves. This would be a good thing if MTV execs didn’t blatantly schill for lefty ideology in their new “Power of 12” promo.
The new get-out-the-vote ad aired at the 2012 Video Music Awards, and hawked the slogan the “power of 45 million young people will decide the outcome of the 2012 election.” It featured a series of images projected behind one-word statements such as “Patriotism,” “Movement,” and “Marriage.”
