“California Gurl” Katy Perry Has Most MTV Nominations

You know you’re getting old when you start complaining about loud music, kids skateboarding in front of your house, the battery life on your hearing aid sucks, and you reminisce about the good ol’ days.  So far I’m 2 out of 4.

Back in my day (the mid to late 90s), artists who dominated the pop charts were Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, Monica, and Celine Dion.  I can still put on a wicked karaoke performance of their songs (insert hearing aid battery life and bad singing joke here).   But now, it’s all about Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Rihanna.  I can’t see myself belting out Baby, Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F), or S&M at a karaoke bar.

Not that MTV Video Music Awards was ever the end all be all metric of what the best music is.  But Associated Press’ report that Katy Perry has won the most (a total of nine) nominations for Firework, E.T. (featuring Kanye West), and Last Friday (T.G.I.F) made me thought of the good ol’ days when music and music videos had meaning.  Mariah’s Hero was in its own elite class of epic videos.

Well, the upside of this is at least Kanye won’t jump on stage and pull an “I’mma let you finish” speech-hijack on Katy if she wins any awards for her song, E.T.  After all, how many “best videos of all time” can Beyoncé have?
