Deserve is definitelt in my top 5 too. But melodically, it’s very easy and boring.

I’m still obsessed with Pipe, especially the verses.

If only she invested time in Liberation, she would have gotten the Vanguard. Sway introduced her in such a way that it brought back her glory days as a TRL muse. So sad to see all of her impact go unnoticed today. :cry: :cry:

^ Are you seriously, genuinely thinking that she would get the Vanguard if Liberation was promoted?

If you watch TRL when Christina appeared, it was a moment of celebration of older TRL generation acts. People in MTV are still looking at the artists during the TRL heyday to honor. Everyone would have laughed if someone said that J.Lo can get the Vanguard award after A.K.A. bombed, but she did now without an album out,without an "On the Floor" kind of hit in recent time, and with only one performance in the history of the VMAs.

She’s still very popular, putting out videos very often; and putting out great videos very often. That’s why, she’s getting that award.
There is no way, Christina could ever, will ever, get that award.

So sad her whole comeback became a non-event in 2018, even for fans

The fact that Xtina Is not even considered for that award is sad but she doesn't deserve it, yes she had great moment from 1999-2006 but everything else went downhill really. She never had popular videos like Pink or JLo in the post 2010's days and her attitude hasn't helped either

She also doesn't get the 'chance' to have popular videos though, I mean the award is also not about' deserving' otherwise a legend like Missy Elliot would have gotten it already, since she has been outstanding in the visual department.

The thing with the Video Vanguard is that they always want to give it to someone who recently has hits. They gave it to LL Cool J after he had a lot of hits in 1997, they gave it to the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the back of Californication success, they also gave it to U2 after the success of "Beautiful Day", "Elevation", etc. Eminem could have been awarded in 2009 or 2010 but the death of Michael Jackson and the domination of Gaga filled in the void for some years until they started awarding younger acts like Britney, Justin, etc. If Lotus became a hit after "Moves Like Jagger" and "Feel This Moment", she could have gotten the award in 2012.

But she has YouTube streaming (JLO) , EL ANILLO Is relevant in Latin countries, about to hit 180 million views , BOOTY despite not being a hit in the long run made her relevant for a week after charting in the top 20 in the USA on the back of the video streaming power alone, AIN'T YOUR MAMA has 619 million views (?) I mean, she must be doing something right to still be relevant and have videos crossing the 100 million views at age 49 years old and 19 years of music recording career.
Christina is a legend on her own as well, but sadly her music videos are DOA on streaming, ACCELERATE has 16 million views and FIL barely crossing 25 million views (?) Lol

Which makes sense J Lo getting an award for videos.

Liberation's videos has been generally DOA due to low budgets and her being invisible.

She got random people to do the videos, the guy who did the album photo shoot and the lady who did the Paper Mag photo shoot . . . a little odd.

The booklet for Liberation is pretty good. I don't really understand what you're trying to say - that she doesn't go for famous names? I don't have a problem with that if the results are good and as far as the booklet goes - it's a good one.

You don’t need to be famous to be good. Fame only brings you expense. Anyway, at this stage - and as much as I love Liberation - I think she needs to embrace unknown artists and become more experimental and explore the alternative route. Commercialism isn’t going to do her any favours now.

What does the booklet have to do with the video of ACCELERATE, her worst video to date

You need help reading? OK.

I was stating that just because someone might not be famous their product might not be bad. Of course the video for Liberation sucks, just as the one for Fall in Line. But that wasn't really the main point of Ewokguy15's post. I really don't see how doing stuff with people who might be fresh and coming is wrong at the start as he seems to point.

The problem I have is not that she used new people, my problem is the two music videos aren’t well done, in fact the Accelerate is easily her worst ever video.

I don’t care who directs her video but it just seem like Luke Gilford who did a good job on her album booklet shouldn’t have just been allowed to do the video for a song she needed to be successful. He was inexperienced as was the Woman who did the Accelerate idea and it showed.

12 (TWELVE!!!) years ago today, Back to Basics was released.

Currently listening to it, and it's tbh slowly becoming my favorite record from her. Love everything about this era <3
