Found this MTV – inside: Yu Aoi, that they probably aired for the release of Dandelion back in 2007 with photographer Yoko Takahashi (aka. Yoko-san) who photographed Yu on Travel Sand (USA, and a bit of Mexico) and Dandelion (Russia).

No subs, does anybody know what they are talking throughout all the video? After the break~

VMA’s still on, and Pink just performed So What, which I dig. I actually own all Pink albums, even the first one, and I know that Pink pumps the audience good, just didn’t feel the performance tonight… Best of the night though, up until now.

Now, onto rumblings… Britney WON! She actually won a Moonman, which my dad was sure she wasn’t gonna do, and he was left flabbergasted. LOL – Anyway, I actually don’t care for any of the nominees… actually, dunno who’s nominated so I’m kinda going with the flow. xD But Britney won! Yes, I was also surprised, as I thought Katy Perry was gonna win and all…

Why the hell did MTV cut to commercials when The Ting Tings were performing? WHY! And they should really think about changing the category names from such as Best Female Video to Most Popular Video by a Female, because it’s hard to believe that a video by Jordin Sparks could win a spot in the nominees, instead of a Bjork’s video.

Ruth InfarinatoThis time, I’m gonna be talking about the coolest VJ in MTV Latin America, and that was Ruth! The orange-haired Argentinean who graced MTV Latin America for long enough so she could make an impact on my TV viewing. She was chill, she was hip… she was just what VJs are supposed to be.

According to Wikipedia, Ruth is a host and an actress, and became one of the main figures for the Latin American youth thanks to her job as a VJ for over 10 years. I mainly knew her from her show Conexion, but she also hosted, co-produced and wrote several other interactive programs… which make her even cooler.

You see, MTV was cooler at that point in time… VJs didn’t try hard to be hip and cool. MTV was actually about music, and reality tv and crappy series weren’t part of the scheduling. You could actually keep your tv on MTV, and no one would think that was weird. There was also Daria, Beavis and Butthead, and even Ren and Stimpy!

And why the heck am I writing about this? Well, I was watching old tapes, and I had recorded some of Ruth’s show Conexion. I actually ended up watching the whole show, and it made me nostalgic about watching MTV, lol. I barely watch any MTV, maybe I occasionally end up watching it at 3 or 4 in the morning, but you wouldn’t catch me watching it during the day.

Nowadays, I tend to watch more VH1, but it’s not necessarily good either, but it’s better than MTV’s programs… most of the times. I remember that in Canada I began watching MuchMusic, which is like Canadian MTV… after a while, I was more of a MuchMoreMusic type of person, almost like the Canadian version of VH1. I did watch quite a bit of CMT too, but that was in Canada – Cable in Peru did had, at one point in time, CMT in their listing but it didn’t last much longer than a month.

put on some clothes, woman!

So, just about 20min ago, Britney did her ‘comeback’ performance on the 2007 VMA’s – there is just something that sums up what’s on my mind. WHAT A JOKE! First impression was; EWWWWWW.

She looked terribly wrong in that outfit, and let’s just say she needs to realize she’s not a hot momma, and that she’s a mother of two. She can’t keep wearing this crap and think it’s hot. Looking at her with that outfit was like watching a mom wearing a leotard… just plain disgusting.

Then, after having a first impression and terrible opinion of her wardrobe, let’s talk about the performance. First, I’m not so into the song… but hey! There was still a slim chance she might give a rocking performance… oh, how I wished that! Let’s see… she barely sang anything. BUT, you might say what about her dancing? I mean, 7 years ago she had pretty awesome choreographed dances~ yeah, well… that was 7 years ago.

Nothing is left of her dancing abilities. This time around, she barely moved around the stage, while wearing thin-needle-heel shoes… and when she tried to move in any way that faintly resembled past-Britney, she failed miserably with sluggish movements that looked horrible on screen. I won’t even get into saying how this combination of music, dance moves and wardrobe looked with her new mommy body.

Enough said.
