The Billboard awards are no longer worth watching.

It's so far beyond what most would consider actually music. Wtf happened to music? It's beyond ridiculous.

1. No award shows are worth watching

Emmys, Tonys, Academy Awards, the various Miss USA/World/Universe pageants, etc.

It's just people patting themselves on the back.

3. I used to enjoy the music shows because I love music. But this stuff is not music.

I don't and never did watch the rest.

5. Billboard magazine is no longer worth reading

It used to be a journal of the many facets of the music world and its businesses. It had news and analysis of the insides of the music business. Now, it's become a celebrity rag not unlike People or Us. Their charts are a mishmash of overlapping genres that have less meaning than a racing form. The writing has become unsophisticated and the focus on personalities and "stars" has made it unreadable.

I've had a subscription since the early 1980's but I gave up this year and let it lapse. I haven't missed it.
