Default MTV Hires Sheila Nevins

MTV is all about youth and pop culture, which is why it is especially notable that as the channel starts a documentary division, it has hired 80-year-old Sheila Nevins to run it.

I never grew up with MTV because we were poor, no cable TV. However, was a big fan of the channel.

I've said MTV sucks for decades because there are no music videos on MTV, which goes against what the channel is about, until I read something about it's business model.

MTV grew up with me. The content and shows are aim straight at the core audiences, as they age. MTV is all I need. I get it now.

I'll wait when MTV takes over 60 Minutes from CBS. Perhaps bid for the Superbowl next?

MTV has grown just like you said, I do wish they brought back music videos but they needed more viewers and what better way to do that? Create tv series, documentaries, talk about real life situations just to reach out to the next generation, and the next after that.

There was a time in my life where the TV would be on in the background all day and MTV was just playing.

But that was a couple decades ago. MTV certainly didn't 'grow up with me', I could give two ***** about Teen Moms or the Kardashians.

IF that photo is current, damn yes she does! Would!!

But really, if they brought back True Life and other great shows, I may watch.

Had my youngest SIL over recently(16) and she was watching some show where you get to tattoo your ex.............

I wish that too, but then when you take a step back, music sucks today, so it's only right that music videos also generate less interest.

I blame technology for this. There was a time Artist were told what to do. The Record company have total control, and why? Because they know what type of music sells, current trends, and marketing creations.

Musicians are often a different breed. They like to do their own thing. Free to sing what they want and with whom they want to. Promote and control their own music downloads. Often times, that does not sell, and isn't that the bottom line? Money?

Stefani Germanotta does not sell. Lady Gaga does sell when you add the meat skin suit.

Anyone here use MS Outlook? You can put a small picture of yourself, no? How many times you received an email from someone you know and said to yourself "that's not how you look like now." That pic looks like it came from the 1990s, or scanned from film prints.
