mtv vma 2004

Yes! The MTV Video Music Awards is here! This year, the planned date seems to be the though those fools in MTV Japan take another "freshness absorbing" month to add on those unnecessary and place-taking Japanese captions in the footage before airing it here. By the time they air it here, all of the events that took place in the show is written all over the internet, including the results, which leaves me nothing new to watch here. How lame!!!

But last year, I was fortunate enough to visit the States when the show took place in New York, and was able to watch it live on TV. Coincidentially, my mom and I visited New York on the day of the show...I remember the areas around Radio City, especially on the 5th Avenue, being crowded enough to be comparable to Japanese train stations. The photo shows the main gate of the Radio City Music Hall, with the posters of the VMA posted in the showcase kinda thing.

One of last year's memorable events was the "Kissing of Madonna and Britney." Even if you're not interested in them, you've probably heard of it somewhere, whether you are in the States or Japan. Last year's award were dominated by black hip-hop and R&B singers, represented by Beyonce. I wonder how the trend is going to be this year...another month to wait...
