Help Me, I’m Old! Here Are 23 People Who Took to Twitter to Vent About Getting Old After Recognizing No One at the VMAs
Random boy bands, girl bands, Kardashian look-alikes and straight-up children. These describe some of the faces no one was able to put a name to last night.
There comes a time to face the music (which, ironically, you can’t find on MTV these days) and accept that you’re just not hip like you used to be. If you're not sure if this is you, there’s no better gauge than pop music. It’s everywhere. In ads, playing in stores, on the radio. You’d think just being surrounded by it, you’d absorb it somehow, like music osmosis or something. But nah. Sorry, bub, your time has passed. You’re officially too old for MTV.
Here are 23 other people who are too old for the VMAs:
At my age, watching the #VMAs is like crashing a stranger's family reunion. I don't recognize anyone, but I try to pretend I'm cool.— Sean Marier (@839photo) August 27, 2017

Drinking game: take 1 shot every time you recognize one of the artists at the VMAs (I'm at 1 right now)— N. Bacchus (@the_nadz) August 27, 2017
So, I guess I am old? When did this happen? Did I miss it? I wasn't aware of this?— Yasmin (@Thecurlymolloy) August 28, 2017
Why the F don't I recognise a single person at the VMAs?
Every year the VMAs remind me how old I am because I do not recognize 75% of the people they put in front of me— A.B. (@AlannaBennett) August 28, 2017

I'm watching the #VMAs red carpet and literally don't recognize any of these supposed celebrities. Wow I'm basically a retiree at this point— ᴍɪᴄʜᴀᴇʟ (@michaelcollado) August 27, 2017
One of these days I will watch the #VMAs and I will recognize none of the presenters or the artists and I'll officially be old.— Lizzzzzzzz (@LizzyLaurie) August 28, 2017
time for the annual viewing of the VMAs, where I recognize about half the artists and hate everything everyone is wearing— Amanda Nelson (@ImAmandaNelson) August 27, 2017
