The MTV Video Music Awards are interesting for many reasons. For one, they always tend to remind us how much MTV has changed. What was once a channel devoted to music is now all about reality television. But it still gives us this crazy awards show for music videos that everyone now just watches on YouTube.
Another thing about the awards show is that they are almost guaranteed to give viewers a shocking moment. Perhaps it’s because celebrities are just there to have a good time, so they drink a little more than usual.
