MTV erases the name of Michael Jackson from the famous award
MTV erases the name of Michael Jackson from the famous award.
Missy Elliot was honored during this year’s MTV Awards with Career Award. But many didn’t know that the King of Pop’s name was stripped of the award, and the award now bears the title “Video Vanguard.”
But during the acceptance ceremony Missy referred to the trophy with the old name. The words spread on the initiative began to dissipate in early July and were concretized even though the naming has been in place since 1991.
MTV decided to change its name just after the documentary “Leaving Neverland”.
For this change, no official statement was made but in the artist’s acceptance speech that MTV never changed – she addressed the award with the old label. Missy thanked Janet Jackson for the friendship she has given him.
