The MTV VMAs have come and gone again, hurdling over the age old question “How are the VMAs still relevant?”. The 2018 VMAs had to scream about its relevancy with a very special delivery that reminded us all that as a society, we still do a lot of things that make me want to open the Ark of the Covenant in a very public place to end all of our eternal suffering in an exquisitely painful fashion.
I propose a question to you, dear reader: of all the absolutely incredible black performers we have right, HOW and WHY was Madonna chosen to perform a “tribute” to recently deceased Gospel and Soul Queen Aretha Franklin?
It’s a damn travesty. You deserved better, Queen.
