One of the risks of not watching the VMAs is that you might miss a female performer doing some sort of slutty dance.
Miley Cyrus, for example, was twerking on Robin Thicke back in 2013. Madonna has been pushing the envelope since as far back as her controversial performance of "Like a Virgin" back in the mid '80s.
In the days before DVRs and YouTube, you had to tune in live, or learn how to program a VCR, in a class you could take at a hotel out by the airport, or else you were shit out of luck.
These days, there's hardly a good reason to watch the VMAs. MTV doesn't show music videos anymore. You know Billie Eilish isn't going to be dressed as a woman. And anything worthwhile you can just catch on Twitter the next day.
One of the few highlights of this year's show was a special appearance from Alyson Stoner, the girl from Missy Elliott's "Work It" video, who's grown now and looks weirdly sexy despite her guy-like haircut.
Stoner took the stage with Elliott, who's been mounting a comeback for like five years now, and broke it down like maybe she's been putting herself through college the old fashioned way.
I wish she wasn't wearing as much clothing, but what are you gonna do? She's clearly been influenced by Missy, who has to walk around in trash bags and shit, because she has a gross body.
