The 2009 AMA Awards- YIKES!

OK~ My 14 year old really, really wanted to see Green Day perform on the 2009 AMA Awards. I have to admit it- this 40 something Mom does like Green Day. The language in the songs is pretty dicey at times- BUT- I like their music! Of course, Green Day performed towards the end- and wouldn't you know it- Adam Lambert's performance was shortly after. I was thinking to myself- during his freaked out performance- Garrett why didn't you go to bed? I could not believe that something like that would even be allowed from the 7- 10 p.m. time frame. It's too bad that Taylor Swift was over seas and did not perform- she does put on a nice, clean cut show!

And I do wonder if anyone was actually paid any money to dress the women presenters and performers. Many of the dresses looked like those big, black contractor bags- and just a "tad" skimpy!

It appears to this Mom that many musicians could take a lesson or two from Taylor Swift- her music is clean, fun, and has a clear message! And furthermore, she seems to be selling music- just goes to show that award winning music does not have to be raunchy and disrespectful! So, what's a Mom to do? Next time a major music awards show comes up on a "standard" television network- switch over to Directv- There were many more cleaner opportunities for viewing during that time frame for my 14 year old son! In the grand scheme of the program itself, Green Day was one of the cleaner cut performances. After all, it's all in a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. I'm in total agreement about Taylor Swift! So many people really love her music. We've actually put a block on some channels of our television, just so we don't even accidently view some of the raunchier stuff out there.

    I've presented you with a blog award over at my blog. Stop by when you get a chance to pick it up!


I always love feedback on my blog!
