Teen Review: 2017 Video Music Awards
Review by Shania, Cedarbrae Youth Advisory Group member
The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards held on Sunday, August 27 was… interesting but also a tad bit boring. To see how many times Kendrick Lamar won was just… amazing! He really does deserve all those awards because he worked really hard on his new album, Damn.
There were interesting performances from Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj. Inspirational performances that touched everyone included those by Logic, Khalid and our very own girl Alessia Cara. Another surprise was the new video of Taylor Swift’s new song called “Look What You Made Me Do.”
Although the performances were reasonably good, the standard of fashion was just horrible – right from the dresses of Fifth Harmony to Katy Perry, the HOST!
A very heart-rending speech from Heather Heyer’s mom, whose daughter was killed during Charlottesville’s protests added a nice touch.
The VMAs in my opinion was a very sad and touching ceremony but at the same time very boring because of the host. If they had picked a better host, the show would have been a lot better.
