    Default MTV may cut Michael Jackson's name from Vanguard Award at VMAs


    After continued fallout from the fake documentary “Leaving Neverland,” MTV is considering cutting ties with Michael Jackson’s name for its annual Video Music Awards in August.

    “There’s a lot of heated discussion at the network about how to handle the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this year, and it’s getting ugly,” a source told. “There’s talk about if they should change the name, or get rid of it altogether. [There’s also talk] about who would pre*sent it and who would accept it. It’s a mess.”

    Michael Jackson’s estate denied the allegations and filed a $100 million lawsuit against HBO for violating a clause from a 1992 contract that barred the network from making “disparaging remarks” about the King of Pop. HBO countered in court docs that the contract had expired.

    But months after the film aired, there are still shock waves being felt in the industry.

    “MTV [potentially] banning his name is the latest fallout. They haven’t decided yet, but they’ve been going back and forth on it. There are a lot of issues,” a source said.

    The award is not given annually, which could also buy MTV time.

    Michael Jackson received the Vanguard Award in 1988, and MTV renamed it in his honor in 1991.

    Rihanna, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Britney Spears, U2 and Jennifer Lopez (last year’s recipient) are some of the stars to have been honored under the name.

    MTV announced its VMA nominees this week, with Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X topping the list. Grande and Swift lead the nominations with 10 each.

    But while MTV announced Lopez as the MJ Vanguard recipient last July, ahead of the late August airdate, the network so far remains mum on whether there is a recipient this year.

    MTV did not confirm or deny this yet.

    I think we should remember to MTV and its staff that Michael made MTV great for almost three decades.
    After his death it became everything but a "Music Television".

    MTV better leave it alone. If they remove it again, there will be bigger problems considering the lies told in LN. I do not think no one is saying this; if so, who is the "source" who told this. leave well enuf alone and there are many artists who would love to have that award in excellence in video. MJ EARNED his name on the award and no LIARS should make it be removed. There will be an outcry if they move it.

    Yes, and then returned it after his death. MTV is ��, and has been so for many years. I have not watched them in over 20 years.

    This is mostly the media pushing this crap, as they have always done. MSM is so pissed that their agenda hasn’t worked. They are desperately trying to throw anything out, in order to see if it sticks.

    I think his name has been removed and put back, a couple of times and may not have even been on the award, last year....I'd have to check on that. This is no big deal, as far as I'm concerned. The media is just trying to conjure up news and controversy where there is none, as usual.

    Upon checking, it was only named the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award in 1991. Prior to that, from 1984 - 1990, it was just the Vanguard Award. In 1994 and again in 2003, it was presented as a Lifetime Achievement Award, without the Michael Jackson name on it. The media publicised it only as the Video Vanguard Award last year, when Jennifer Lopez won it; however, MTV called it the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award on Youtube. I think it's a bit hit-and-miss and depends on what the general feeling is in the industry at the time.

    Saw this coming they've handed out the award for years and just called it the vanguard award, now with that "documentary" they have an excuse to remove his name. Disappointing but not surprising from the snakes at MTV

    They've gone years and years without mentioning Michael's name in connection with the award on the actual award show, and the recipients not mentioning him either. Then suddenly one year it re-appears. Then the next it's gone.

    Frankly the award is a joke anyway so it might actually be better if Michael wasn't associated with it.

    Too late for that. MTV suck @$$ anyways for doing that and they never even show their support for him anymore like they used to. They care about trash TV.

    Let's hope they will keep his name on there. we will just have to wait and see. but it wouldn't be too surprising if they do because if they did it the past then doing it now isn't so surprising. they just have an excuse to remove it now.
