MTV Awards had no tribute to Prince

I still can't believe MTV didn't even give him a mention last night.
I know Prince wasn't the best at making videos compared to Madonna & MJ..
But he & MJ put MTV on the map in terms of a crossover audience.
On top of that, Prince is a legend & should've had at least some sort of
acknowledgement.
David Bowie got nothing as well.
I know he was nominated but still..

Who cares? It was the worst award show in history anyway,and I'd rather them not utter his name from their lips. They're not worthy...

I see Mayte shared videos of David Bowie and one of Prince. I am sure she was showing tribute to them since they were not acknowledged at all by MTV. I too shared videos and paid tribute to both on facebook. It's a matter of respect.

Prince has done great videos.

I just realized that they didn't do a tribute until you mentioned. And nobody mentioned him either.

"MTV Awards had no tribute to Prince" - What do you expect from a pig but a grunt?

In spite of what some revisionists in here want you to believe, Prince was never a part of, or ever condoned any behavior from BLM. If he was a part of that group, they would have canonized him last night.

However since they are dealing with the reality that he didn't hate the police, they chose to give Beyonce' (talentless hack) a forum to disgorge hatred.

What do you mean ... "Prince wasn't the best at making videos" ...he made fucking purple rain ... Thriller blows compared ... Maronna never did anything good ever .. Mtv has been clueless for decades ... I would never expect anything good to come from them again ever
