2019 BBMA’s Didn’t Disappoint

I hesitated to watch last night. I once was an obsessed Billboard follower. Heck, all music awards shows were like “The Game Of Thrones” for me. (Just a metaphor because I actually don’t like that show but the hype around it is crazy!) It was an event that needed preparation. I’d have to make sure everything was done for the day. Food and drinks ready with no distractions. Besides Twitter 😎

And now…to my surprise, something has changed. The hype has faded.

Spotify is my music player. The days of buying CD’s are over. I never thought it would happen to me ::SAD:: I still have a small collection that I cherish though 🤗

I use to spend hours looking for new artist and new music. I seem to have moved over to Podcasts and YouTube videos more lately. With the Billboards coming up I decided to see what was trending. Searched for Top 50 USA and pressed play. As I was driving to work I found myself skipping through so many songs. My ears couldn’t believe what was coming out of my speakers. I kept saying, “what the hell is this? This is on the top 50?! WTF?.” Then I thought, crap…I’m getting old 😭 Oh well, that’s just what happens with age. It seems my taste in almost everything has changed. Although music has changed as well. Rap is soooooo different from my Dr. Dre days.

I was contemplating last night while taking my dog out. Got back and it was 8:07pm. Decided to flip through the channels and Kelly Clarkson appeared on my screen. She was singing Boo’d Up by Ella Mai. I was reeled in. I love Kelly and I love that song!

I actually enjoyed their line up. I didn’t hear many of the top 50 from Spotify. I guess their charts calculate differently. Pop music is my favorite so I felt like it catered to me 😁

Best performance of the night I say, Ciara. I thought it was hot! Her long legs and those dance moves. She looks great. Definitely a feel good song.

Ciara at the Billboards!

Halsey, she’s so talented. I love just about all her songs. That performance was OK. It just didn’t flow as natural as I thought it should have.

Jonas Brothers…I really like Nick so… 🤪 It was cute.

Tori Kelly…she’s just so pretty with a powerful voice to match. I’m not familiar with the guys she sang with, will have to look him up.

Ariana Grande… the performance was OK. I love the song though. She is one of my favorites.

Taylor…performance was great. But I don’t love the song.

I tried watching Madonna but couldn’t continue to the end. 🤕

Overall a pretty good show. I went to the Billboard a few years ago. So much better on television.

I guess I’m not that old yet hahahaaa

About me…let’s see….I would say I am a TRUE Virgo. If you knew me, then you would so agree. There are quite a few things I care deeply about. Off the top of my head, I would say with much passion, my family, friends, the environment and world peace. Oh and animals. Can't forget them. I think I love animals more than most humans, lol. I believe it’s important to surround yourself with good people. Be picky with who you let in your circle. The environment, the earth does not belong to us. We are merely just visiting for a period of time. So lets no abuse it. World peace, that’s a hard one. It’s not a perfect world, but wouldn't it be wonderful if every child, women and man were safe? We can’t change the world and every single soul living on earth. But one person can make a great difference in the surroundings in which they live. Wouldn't you agree? Let’s not forget what fuels my soul, music. It speaks for me when I can’t. It expresses my feelings when I am unaware of what they are. It has a way of lifting my spirits when I am down. It has this magical power that is able to touch my heart with just lyrics alone. I wouldn't know what I would do without it. Poetry, I love poetry. In all forms...written or spoken. I think that's it :) Wait, then there is God, the source of everything. Astrology, quantum physics, Abraham Hicks, Agape...I should just end this now, LOL.

Any thoughts?
