I’m Not Watching The Miley Cyrus VMA Video

I might very well be the only American at this point who has not seen the recent performance by Miley Cyrus at the VMAs. Further, I have no intention of watching it. I stand firm on this point.

My wife keeps trying to convince me that I need to see it. She thinks it is hysterical. I believe the phrase “train wreck” entered into her description. For some reason, that failed to convince me. I steadfastly maintained my position that I had no reason on earth to watch this video.

Mind you, I have no real opinion on the video. It sounded pretty odd, but odd for normal life and odd for a modern pop music performance are two entirely different things. I’m not bashing Miley Cyrus for this. I’m not saying it was too provocative. Given what I’ve seen other performers do, I honestly don’t expect it is really that much different.

No, the reason that I haven’t (and won’t) watch the video is that I just don’t care. I don’t care about Miley Cyrus. I don’t care about the VMAs. I don’t care about anything involved in the situation. I just don’t care.

Thus, feel free to say anything you want about the performance. I probably won’t get involved. However, don’t ask me to watch the video. I just don’t want to.

    I haven’t watched it either. Something about “a baby giraffe learning to walk” plus I had to Google what “twerking” meant. I still don’t understand.
