This past weekend, MTV hosted their annual Video Music Awards. That fact, in and of itself, was an interesting discussion point, seeing as all they seem to give us are ridiculous reality shows such as Jersey Shore. I can’t even remember the last time I saw more than a ten-second clip of a music video played on any of their networks! Nevertheless, the VMAs were still held, the Moonmen were handed out, and one of our own conducted pre-VMA round-table interviews.
Over the years, the Kevin & Bean show crew have interviewed a number of artists and all kinds of events. Some are better than others. The “other” that took on the task this time around was DJ Omar Khan – the last person that should have been allowed to interview Rebecca Black (or anyone for that matter)!
It saddens me that rock music is rare nowadays on MTV, but luckily, they still welcome KROQ to take part in the VMA festivities. Omar was more than happy to step into the role of interviewer this time around and clumsily ask
random people celebrities some awkward hard hitting questions.
Omar started strong by asking Stephen Dorff and Nick Swardson about their new movie… that he couldn’t remember the title of. (It’s Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star, by the way, so we can’t fault him too badly.) Shortly thereafter, he Kevin’d (yes, I used that as a verb) his way through a question directed at [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Everlast[/lastfm].
Omar also gets to the bottom of the Entourage question plaguing everyone’s mind by asking Constance Zimmer (who plays Dana Gordon) if Ari Gold dies at the end of the series. Really? I mean, I know that Entourage has taken a few odd plot turns over the years, but you think they’d really kill off Ari to end the series? C’mon, Omar! No interview is complete without Omar mixing up the stars of Shark Night 3D (or Shark 3D, as Omar calls it). Strong, dude. Strong.

Before the day was over, there was one last interview that Omar had to get! He was pretty much asked by Rebecca Black’s people to play nice. The chick’s only fourteen and had to leave school because of kids mocking her music, so Omar thought the logical thing to do was try to get her to admit that her song is crap. All of us can agree with that, but Omar is relentless in getting Rebecca to admit it too. His valiant effort failed. The final word from Ms. Black? “I’m not gonna diss on my own song!”
