Miley Cyrus 'won' the night at the MTV VMAs

Spare me the outrage. Of COURSE Miley Cyrus practically stripped naked, "twerked" (look it up…you'll thank me) and generally made a spectacle of herself on MTV Sunday night.

The Video Music Awards (VMAs) stopped being about music videos shortly after Music Television (MTV) stopped being about music. This show is specifically designed, scripted and rehearsed to generate outrage, talk and usually condemnation.

We live in a society where attention is the goal and how you get it is irrelevant. Your sex tape is leaked? You are a "star" (Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton,etc.)? You behave badly for a living (Charlie Sheen, Amanda Bynes, etc.)? Then you are a "celebrity."

That message has been received loud and clear by this generation, and they not only aren't embarrassed, they celebrate it! Miley Cyrus WON the night, regardless of the reaction.

About the Author

I may not be a native, but I've been in Arizona long enough to forget what it's like back East. I moved to Tucson in the 5th grade where I graduated high school and attended the UofA. The radio bug hit me early and I was a DJ at the age of 17 in Tucson. Besides being on-air at times, my main career focus has been the behind-the-scenes programming of radio stations. I have an extensive background in music radio, in addition to working at and/or running some of the biggest and most influential radio stations in America. My radio career took me to Los Angeles, San Diego and then back to Phoenix. The chance to be back on-air, and to do it at 92.3 KTAR, was too good to pass up… so here we are! Weekends are usually reserved for racing as I own and drive my own dirt track Sprint Car all over the country. I am unmarried (never have been), childless (that I'm aware of) and don't even have any pets at this point. I do own 1 plant but the fact it has survived this long without watering leads me to believe it may be plastic. I love what I do and enjoy hosting a talk radio show for people who don't like "talk radio".
