I Hate Being a Teenager
The Teen Choice Awards.
Out of curiosity I decided to check out who won (actually I wanted to see if South of Nowhere won) and I was horrified by almost every single "choice" that teenagers, my peers, made. Here is a list of the winners that have given me no hope for the future:
1. Choice Movie: Action Adventure: Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End.
I must admit I haven't seen it. The first one was more than enough of a waste but according to my brother who majors in film, it was a total crapfest. The critics seem to agree. I guess Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom were a large part of why it why.
2. Choice TV: Movie: High School Musical 2.
First off, had this even premiered by the time the "voting" had ended? Second, I don't understand how this could be popular to anyone over the age of 12. The acting is weak, the plot is weak, and the entire film is weak. I don't understand the appeal of the High School Musical franchise (and I love musicals) or how it was able to garner 17 million viewers when it premiered on a Friday night! I guess it is just one of life's mysteries.
3. Choice TV Actress: Comedy: Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana)
Hannah Montana?! The freaking Disney Channel Original Series?! I thought this was the TEEN choice awards, but obviously it much more targeted towards the tweens. I really cannot believe anything produced for the Disney Channel could be recognized for acting. I guess overacting is in now a days. That would explain a lot.
I could make a lot of comments about the music choices but none of the nominees were any good to be begin with so it would just be beating a dead horse. I think I may just have to accept that the majority of the teen population has crappy taste and will probably have crappy taste the rest of their lives. Ce la vie.
Note: Please do not take offense to my unintelligent rant. This is just my opinion and I am not trying to degrade anyone in anyway.
