I am really interested to see WHO everyone thinks will be the next recipent for the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award next year at the VMA’s. Feel free to comment and explain your choice. I did not have enough room to put more individuals, but please feel free to add more individuals you feel I left out.
Missy Elliott needs to be the top choice.
Missy Elliott is over due for that award.
Definitely Missy Elliot. Outkast should also definitely be in the running some time soon.
I was also thinking Missy Elliot.
It should be Eminem.
It’s going to be whoever is relevant in the year. Most likely, it’s going to be Rihanna. Or Eminem if he releases another album.
People need to be relevant to get this award, and Missy Elliot is almost at a point where she came and went. Sort of like that No Doubt comeback from a few years ago that went nowhere. She deserves it though, along with Dave Meyers they have done so great videos that might all look the same, but they’re still good. I would love to see that musical number.
I guess Eminem is the more logical choice but because this is MTV it needs to happen around an album, something to promote, something to say. I suppose by that time next year he could have something ready.
Rihanna doesn’t fit into that group yet.
I can imagine Lady Gaga’s new album dropping weeks before or after the awards and conviently being “deserving” and avalaible. She doesn’t feel like a winner for this yet, but watch it happen.
