is anyone shocked? the kids & teens who watched trl have grown up & moved on & today's young audience have access to everything online. why wait for them to play a video when u can watch it instantly on youtube? a pathetic attempt to revive mtv after it turned to sh!t with reality shows.

I don't watch regular MTV. I think it's damaged goods and I'm not surprised they fucked up VH1 Classic when it became MTV Classic. I love watching and recording the 80s block and the Metal block, it must be on auto pilot because they play the same sh!t over and over again. You'd think everybody was a one or two hit wonder they way they do the blocks on the channel. I'm honestly surprised it hasn't became a graveyard for their old shitty reality shows.

Let me be the fucking adult here and tell you what ruin the good days and good times. The Millenials, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the glorification of that lifestyle of not caring plus looking like sh!t with crazy fashion statements. You took your freedom of expression to an extreme to fit in. You took your neck and caused it more problems down the road. LOOK UP AND LIVE LIFE! If you notice the fashion of Carson Daly when TRL was at its best and then you turn on the new TRL the fashion and attitude. Its night and day. You basically took the fan to artist experience away with sorry to say like these "forums" like these allowing hate to be online. Meaning we have no more Britney vs Christina's or Backstreet vs Nsync anymore. Meaning your opinions and words are replaced by an emoji and cannot construct well-thought sentences The internet screwed with the listening to the radio, watching VIDEOS on MUSIC TELEVISION.I bet the majority of those who read this don't remember Napster? The youth ruin the Billboard Charts and the "#1 most requested video" of the day.  Remember what that is called and going to concerts safe without worrying about what happened in Las Vegas. Our diverse culture is fabulous and as many of the gay young men on here will not worry about their culture but more worry about being online and not going to their libraries to read a book. Nope, it's online! Do you see a pattern? I may be from the Carson Daly which I am proud of but you millennials and younger "leaders" ruin it. WAKE UP! Keep loving the Kardashians. NO ONE CARES ABOUT THAT FAMILY AND WHAT THEY REPRESENT!! KEEP GLORIFYING CELEBRITIES AND NOT THOSE WHO SERVE AND PROTECT YOU FREEDOM TO RUIN THE REAL TRL DAYS OF THE PURE LOVE FOR MUSIC! Do you know what is a VHS? VCR? Modern technology can fun but it comes at a cost. THINK ABOUT IT! 

 

EXAMPLE I LOVE BRITNEY SPEARS BUT https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britney_Spears_discography

LOOK AT THE NUMBERS IN SALES FROM BABY ONE MORE TIME TO GLORY. IT IS PATHETIC THAT THE DIGITAL AGE RUINED THE EXPERIENCE OF WORKING HARD FOR YOUR MONEY TO GO TO THE MALL TO BUY A VINYL, TAPE OR CD. IF IT IS NOT BROKEN DONT FIX IT. THINK ABOUT IT! 

I do see what you're saying. I feel guilty if I write out something long on other sites because I fully expect a 'tl;dr' answer. I didn't write something that rivals the length of all the Harry Potter books. A lot of people just can't focus on something that's a few paragraphs long without their eyes glazing over. 

I still embrace old technology if at all possible. I still held onto VCRS and recording on a VHS tape way longer than a lot of people. I had a working dvd recorder and I'd still record on a vcr a lot of the time. The vcr started eating tapes and the other vcr in the house probably isn't much better. I do have boxes and boxes of vhs tapes and that's quite a dilemma when the technology's out of date. It's basically a lot of money going down the toilet because those boxes are basically collecting dust. The way I watch tv now, a DVR box really is best for me with what I watch now. I can watch it once and delete it.

I have an ipod and still enjoy cd players. I still buy cds for the artists I really enjoy. I can see a day where that's gonna go in the direction of the vcr and vhs tapes. I realize that's a minority opinion because a lot of people don't give a f**k about physical cds anymore. 

But I still have to defend the modern way, even if it seems like I'm stuck in the past with one toe dipped in the "modern" pool. The internet has helped me a great deal when a tv and a radio couldn't. I've shared on other posts that I'm a huge fan of Falco's. Been a fan for 20 years. I'm in America, hicksville Georgia. I've seen two Falco videos on tv and heard one song on the radio. Everything else would be a complete blank without a computer hooked up to an internet connection. Not only was I able to listen to the rest of his discography, I was able to purchase his physical albums. I'd only been able to find one album of his around the area I live in. It was "The Remix Hit Collection" so it wasn't even a regular album. A lot of albums I had to order from Austria and Germany, I managed to get them and I'm a huge nerd for being so giddy at that. :blol: 

---------

And I think my age also has a lot to do with how I treat technology. I named stuff I grew up on. My attitude might be DRASTICALLY different if I'm 15 instead of my early 30s. I was already a bit unusual with my tastes to start with. I can't imagine being a 15 year old in 2017 writing 'vcr' as something on my Christmas wishlist. I would think everybody would actually start being vocal with me and asking 'Why the f**k do you want a vcr?!!!' :girlwhat: :squintney:

So you're what, forty? Fifty?

Because the Millennial generation ends at thirty-five. It includes Britney, myself, and the majority of her fanbase. Why do I have to keep explaining to people here that they're apart of the generation they badmouth, and teenagers aren't included in it? Can you not go to one of those libraries you mentioned and do your research? 

Yes, we played a part in the digital age coming to life, just as Generation X and the Boomers did for creating and perfecting computers in the first place: but this one's on the industry for not being able to keep up with the times, places like Napster for inspiring illegally downloading and torrenting music as BoyToy mentioned, and Britney's numbers are on her for never promoting or giving a crap. It's quite simple.

This. So much this.

Yep. WoB was the place to be back in TRL's heyday and from the start of her career.

And they always had something to bitch about/"hate on" back then, too.

yeah it was fun back then, people think Britney only get criticized now

these are comments from another site back in 2002 when Britney cancelled the Mexico show due to the storm

  • "That sucks for all her fans. I am NOT a Britney fan. She shouldn't just leave like that though. That's rather immature."
  • "If I remember correctly, she's been doing that a lot lately. I think Britney's getting close to breaking down."
  • "... i seriously doubt people went to hear her sing anyway... she just lip sings anyway... lol but she sure is nice to look at "
  • "have you seen lately? she's packed on the pounds. i figured it would happen eventually, she looked like the candidate to become an ogre.
    (heh not quite anna nicole smith level of fatass though)"
  • "The silicon is going to her head."
  • "The day we don't have to hear or see her anymore will never come soon enough..."
  • "look at her without her make up on and she is ugly. i also read that she would use animals on stage and some people from some animal group wanted to sew her. even though it says they had to go for saftey reasons, it sounds weird that she just suddenly went off without saying anything. it sounds as if shes telling lies to us again like that breast job she had.  oh yea and shes a bit of a sell out"

And people think exhale is mean just now, they forget it's always been like that in message forums

Yep. I think it was cheri who pulled up a bunch of archives of Onyx Hotel reviews -- which were not nice at all. People were complaining back then and calling her lazy, bitching about her only singing Shadow and Everytime live, etc etc. (It may have been Shadow. (the member here, lol) or someone else, Idk for sure.) Can you imagine complaining about that nowadays? So freaking surreal.

Oh my God, remember when this was the biggest controversy around her after the lipsyncing crap (*oh, and the virginity thing; I forgot that one)? There was an entire site dedicated to proving they were implants, I remember it. They used pictures of her at the Teen Choice Awards (the year she wore the white crop top with mirror pieces on it and white pants; Lynne was her date) as "proof." There was also this big "I Hate Britney Spears" website, too. Like.... :hahaha: It's been a thing since 1999.

TRL was never going to happen tbh. 

I will say the new generation is so set on the new and only the new which is the problem with ppl born 2000 and up. 

I like the new but am aware we shouldn't get rid of the things in the past or not as quick. The past is less risky...

we were more free in the past than we are now. I love the Internet but we can't deny the negative parts of it. With crime, loss of privacy, plus the biggest negative impact will be the loss of communication skills to other ppl. Which makes up a good part of our emotional well being. 

Which is why we are seeing a spike in anxiety and depression imo 

One day I think a huge push for less technology will happen but it's so new and fresh everyone is obsessed right now.

I can't at you acting like the late 1990s/early 2000s was this paradise and tecnology ruined it. :tiffcackle: Every generation glorified lack of talent one way or the other. You had Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, we have the Kardashians. :tiffcackle: Terrorism also existed back then. So did bad music going up the charts, poorly-written sentences and music forums. :tiffcackle:

I actually still buy physical music, so go peddle that petty mess elsewhere. Britney's lack of sales has nothing to do with technology advancing btw. It's her lack of care and poor work ethic but go awf, I guess.

As time goes by, we're going to have more resources to do everything a lot easier than before. That's just the way life is. It's funny you mention Napster, because that gave birth to Limewire and Ares and Bearshare and all those other P2P torrent and illegal downloads started killing music sales. VCR at the time was fine, but we've moved onto better equipment that gives us better results. What, you'd prefer watching a new movie on VHS rather than an HD Blu-Ray disc?

This tea is piping hot. :angietea:

can u not be so patronising? this is just another "im a _ _ kid we were the best blah blah fucking blah!" things don't stay the same forever get the f**k over it. and u do realise the millennial generation u hate so much mostly consist of ADULTS who grew up in the trl era? sucks for u :tiffcackle: just another person jumping on the "i hate millennials"  bandwagon. u also realise that ur beloved "trl era" i.e the late 90s/early-mid 00s is what many consider the start of the digital age? :tiffcackle:if u hate forums & the internet so much why the f**k are u on here typing up a load of sh!t?  :tiffcackle: "let me be the fucking adult here" :tiffcackle::tiffcackle::tiffcackle:

The first problem with this statement is that you are making assumptions and being patronising. Social media has 100% fucked up society and made people more vacuous, image conscious, self critical, depressed comparing their lives to others, even apathetic the list goes on but there's grown folks in their 40s and up on there too. 

People's have thought that their opinions are the be all and end all. I mean reaction videos are a joke but again old folk do it too and are extra sanctimonious with it too.

Stan battles have always been a thing. It's just more intense now cos they actually attack each other and get bitter with it. That's name after the 2000 Eminem song right? Listen to that song, and his song 'who knew', he mocks stupid obsessive fans and people outraging.

People were always mass shooting in America, people kinda associate America with that. High school shootings and that, the teens now might not even know about. 

I get what you're saying but your delivery is whack. The internet has made people self obsessed yes, it's still a new phenomenon though. People young people want to feel normal and have everyone like them, you were like that at one point. They are impressionable, and want to fit in, dream of fame. It's not their fault, if you can get a song quick and free, why would you go and buy one in a store, if you didn't know any better. Vinyl sales increase anyway? Record companies don't seem to really know what they're doing with the change. People's lives revolve around the internet, that's the problem. Stars need to stop pandering to what losers on the internet moan about and just do their thing. The worst thing about the internet is generation snowflake, none of what you listed.

So Millenials must be blamed for terrorists attacks now?:tiffcackle:

Use the internet to educate yourself and stop being ridiculous.

Back in the 19th century, ppl were also against technology advances and improvement for the future. Consequently, against all the advances achieved by now (including those appearing at the beginning of the 21st century (those you mention btw)).

Well, I guess idiots exist in all centuries:tiffcackle:

I am sure all of you guys have watched the NEW TRL these past couple of days. To be honest everyone at Viacom is in shambles that the show is pulling in record low numbers and are being dragged by every news media possible. The people in power do not want to re-instate the countdown despite fan outrage. The show is not testing well with audiences. Don't blame MTV, blame Lauren Waters (The Woman who casted all of these VINE/Youtube people)  

MTV blew almost 4 million dollars on this TRL reboot, they threw all of their eggs in 1 basket (with the idea that this was going to work)

 

Starting MONDAY, TRL will be reduced from 1 hour to ONLY 30 min

 

MTV.com has been updated to reflect this change

 

IF this does not work out TRL will be canceled in 3 weeks by Viacom.

You all have proven my statement correct. 

1. You have attacked me on a social media chat forum yet your "generation" is so sensitive about what people post, say, think and have opinions. 

2. You clearly have taken offense to defend your generation without learning from my generation which began MTV to have TRL. So please its called a little respect! 

3. Reminder, that you are pointing your fingers at me for Paris Hilton which led to your precious reality show shitshows which led to MTV not be MTV. (Real World and Road Rules was the BEST!)  Reminder if we did not have a show where you call into VOTE which majority of the Millenials care more about Kim instead of making HERSTORY meaning to VOTE!!! You can thank yourself because now we have TRUMP!!! So if you got off your precious phones and worry less about celebrities we would have our first female president! I voted for Hillary by the way! (Speaking about Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson which have many awards and fabulous sales!) 

4. The true fan experience is when you turn on your radio and listen to a song that inspires you. You call the radio station or find out who is the artist that made that song that made you want to dance, to do good and to rock out with your bad self. You would go to a record store, cd store or anywhere you want to go buy their music. You would listen to that CD or record. You would go to the concerts and follow them. Social media might have brought the fans closer to the artist but again look at the sales of Britney. 

5. Look at the sales for Britney.  Since I am a part of this Brit Army. Look at the sales link again, look at it real close and take into facts that modern technology has ruined it. We went from personal cassette holders to cd players, to iPods and where you can listen to your music on a device that could be hacked in. You cant hack into a cd player or devices my generation had or have! So consider the fact that Russia hacked into our elections and anyone could hack into those devices. 

6. Seriously wake up and realize the world around you. Trust me I have over 1,000 songs on my Samsung Galaxy 6s phone and I use this modern technology wisely, correctly and smart. 

Reminder, you are hiding your true self behind a screen with screen names to hide your true self. Before TRL we had a tiny show that many will not know about and the legend this man was. Does anyone remember d*ck Clark? I bet you only remember him from Rockin New Years Eve but I remember him from a tiny show called American Bandstand when Madonna, Paula Abdul and Janet Jackson made their debut. So think about that when you want to talk about your generation. If it was not for shows like American Bandstand we would not have MTV which had a very amazing show called TRL which was the modern version of American Bandstand where we got introduced to Britney, Christina, Justin Timberlake, Rhianna, and Usher.  Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Demi Lavato are apart of the system we have today where they use social media wisely.

You all have proven my statement correct. 

1. You have attacked me on a social media chat forum yet your "generation" is so sensitive about what people post, say, think and have opinions. 

2. You clearly have taken offense to defend your generation without learning from my generation which began MTV to have TRL. So please its called a little respect! 

3. Reminder, that you are pointing your fingers at me for Paris Hilton which led to your precious reality show shitshows which led to MTV not be MTV. Reminder if we did not have a show where you call in to VOTE which majority of the Millenials care more about Kim instead of making HERSTORY meaning to VOTE!!! You can thank yourself because now we have TRUMP!!! So if you got off your precious phones and worry less about celebrities we would have our first female president! I voted for Hillary by the way! (Speaking about Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson which have many awards and fabulous sales!) 

4. The true fan experience is when you turn on your radio and listen to a song that inspires you. You call the radio station or find out who is the artist that made that song that made you want to dance, to do good and to rock out with your bad self. You would go to a record store, cd store or anywhere you want to go buy their music. You would listen to that CD or record. You would go to the concerts and follow them. Social media might have brought the fans closer to the artist but again look at the sales of Britney. 

5. Look at the sales for Britney.  Since I am a part of this Brit Army. Look at the sales link again, look at it real close and take into facts that modern technology has ruined it. We went from personal cassette holders to cd players, to iPods and where you can listen to your music on a device that could be hacked in. You cant hack into a cd player or devices my generation had or have! So consider the fact that Russia hacked into our elections and anyone could hack into those devices. 

6. Seriously wake up and realize the world around you. Trust me I have over 1,000 songs on my Samsung Galaxy 6s phone and I use this modern technology wisely, correctly and smart. 

Reminder, you are hiding your true self behind a screen with screen names to hide your true self. Before TRL we had a tiny show that many will not know about and the legend this man was. Does anyone remember d*ck Clark? I bet you only remember him from Rockin New Years Eve but I remember him from a tiny show called American Bandstand when Madonna, Paula Abdul, Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson made their debut. So think about that when you want to talk about your generation. If it was not for shows like American Bandstand we would not have MTV which had a very amazing show called TRL which was the modern version of American Bandstand where we got introduced to Britney, Christina, Justin Timberlake, Rhianna, and Usher.  Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Demi Lavato are apart of the system we have today where they use social media wisely. 

I really don't understand what your point is or why you're even bitching. Every generation is different. Nothing has been "ruined", it's just either been improved or rendered obsolete with new technology and practices. If we ever get to have time machines, then go back to 1990 and stay there if you loved it so much. I personally loved the 2000s because those are my fondest childhood memories, but I'm not gonna mope about the new iPods or radio not playing the music I like anymore. I've grown as a consumer. I still buy my CDs and listen to my own music. I don't like streaming but it's pretty useful when I want to listen to some new music before I buy it physically. So every generation has it's pluses and minuses. Deal. :whitney:

Do you work for MTV or Viacom? Could you explain more about why the execs are so daft and stubborn?

Nobody wants to sit around and watch 25 nobodies host a show where all they do is just make fools of themselves twerking and jumping around Times Square. The whole point of the original show was the music video countdown. The live performances and artist interviews are probably the only redeeming factor this reboot has going for it.

Also, this is probably the most douchebag tweet I've seen in a while.
