Why MTV Won’t Be Able To Show Lady Gaga Videos Anymore

MTV, which brokered music videos into the mainstream, failed to reach an agreement with Universal Music Group and Vevo, the YouTube-esque music video site. Which means none of MTV’s Internet properties will be able to show videos from UMG’s artists, which includes Lady Gaga. Of course it’s all about money, and with Lady Gaga, isn’t it always?

    Who watches MTV anymore? What reason?

  • Feast of Fun

    What’s an MTV? Is that some sort of SUV?

  • Jeffree

    @Feast of Fun: Yes, it stands for “Multi Terrain Vehicle” which is a step down from an “All-Terrain Vehicle”! It’s what Jodi Foster drives, or more likely, is driven in.

    [OK, not true, but I’m bored at work and making stuff up…..]

    I haven’t watched MTV in years. My parents used to watch sometimes in the late 80s when it really was mostly videos. Other people on here can tell you how they now have various channels.
