Best And Worst Of The MMVAs

Lady Gaga

As anyone who lives near Toronto’s Queen West district is fully aware, the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards just happened over the weekend, dramatically disrupting everyone’s lives for the sake of a giant teenager-baiting street party/live television event.

I’ve been to a number of these over the years in a professional capacity so I wrote about some of the best and worst MMVA performances for Huffington Post Music Canada.

You can read that list, highlighted by Lady Gaga‘s exploding boobies, by going here.

This Week In Music History: August 19 – 25

Lady Gaga & Aaliyah

Lady Gaga & Aaliyah

My “This Week In Music History” feature went out again this week over at the Spinner.

It was this week in 2008 when Lady Gaga first introduced herself to us with her debut album. Joe Strummer of The Clash was also introduced to the world in a literal sense — it was his birthday. Oh, and Aaliyah died.

Concert Censorship: A Brief History Of ‘The Man’ Trying To Shut Down The Rock

Religious protesters want Lady Gaga to go to hell

Religious protesters want Lady Gaga to go to hell

On any given day, in any town or city, anywhere in the world, there’s probably some crackdown/protest/sinister bullshit happening that’s attempting to prevent people from rockin’ and dancin’.

Basically, the people behind these crackdowns hate music and they hate life and they’re assholes.

Anyway, in lieu of the latest round of anti-Lady Gaga protests in the Philippines and such, Sarah was tasked to find other examples of The Man cracking down on rock ‘n’ roll.

It turns out there were no shortage of examples, from Elvis Presley to Eminem to The Beatles to you name it. Basically, the government is afraid of musicians.

How Kidz Bop De-Pervertizes Katy Perry Lyrics

Kidz Bop 21 is free of ANYTHING that would scare your kids

Kidz Bop 21 is free of ANYTHING that would scare your kids

There’s a thing called the Kidz Bop series and it’s a really big deal. Basically, producers get a bunch of next generation Disney kids together and they sing reworked versions of popular Top 40 radio hits with all the sex, drugs, violence, innuendo, negativity, religion, and any other potentially controversial language smoothed out of the songs and usually replaced with the words “dance” or “dance, yeah!”

Sarah spent an unnaturally long time listening to the kidz-ified versions of songs by LMFAO, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Rihanna and a pile of others on the recently released Kidz Bop 21. She then compared the kidz versions to the originals to find out how youth-friendly they’ve been made.
