DSILF, (Disney Star I’d Like To Fuck), Selena Gomez managed to simultaneously sing her shitty song Come ‘n’ Get It and piss off one of the world’s oldest religions when she wore a Hindu bindi during her MTV Movie Awards performance. The singer, who is Latino, wore a red beaded bindi in the middle of her forehead as she gyrated to the crappy beats. The bindi is an ancient Hindu symbol that represents the third eye and is worn by hundreds of millions of Hindus. This is just another classic case of Hollywood grubbers appropriating someone else’s culture to look exotic and cool. Cosplay is cosplay and who doesn’t love a girl dressed up like Sailor Moon or a furry aardvark thing, But dressing up in the garb of another religion for style points is pretty lame.
Stick to your own faith, ladies. Just keep suckling at the teet of that golden calf until your teeth rot out of your empty skulls.
What would you do if you threw a big movie awards show and nobody noticed? If you’re MTV, you could plot the death of even more of your crappy reality show stars. It’d give the press something to talk about other than the fact that you changed the date of your Movie Awards and nobody remembered. Just last week I was just thinking, fuck, I probably have to go cover the MTV Movie Awards again this June, then, blammo, nope, they happened last night. Kim Kardashian did show up looking like the world’s largest bat, but if that’s all you got, it’s a sure sign people forgot your party.
By the way, if you bet on Taylor Lautner in Breaking Dawn Part 2 to win best shirtless moment, you might think you won, but someday you’ll realize you did not.
America teenagers are really stupid (See: the success of Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber) and MTV is run by people who are very good at taking advantage of that stupidity. So despite the fact that no intelligent adult has watched the MTV Movie Awards in at least 10 years, the network confidently announced the nominees yesterday of its annual celebration of actors who will show up to anything.
In case you needed a reminder that the MTV Movie Awards cater to the lowest common denominator, here is an actual clip from the network’s press release:
Keeping with the show’s tradition of celebrating current cultural memes, this year’s telecast will introduce two new categories. Abdominally blessed nominees Channing Tatum (Magic Mike), Taylor Lautner (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), Daniel Craig (Skyfall) and Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Rises) will sweat it out against fan-favorite stuffed bear Seth MacFarlane as Ted for the crown of “Best Shirtless Performance”…
Best Shirtless Moments. Four guys. Shit’s weak, MTV.
If it wanted to attract more viewers – specifically males – MTV would give Olivia Wilde a lifetime achievement award every year and then just show her stripping and lesbian scene with Ashley Greene in Butter for two hours.
