Any idiot knows dry-humping staff is a no-no, and Ghomeshi is a lot of things, but he isn't an idiot. Ghomeshi was a left-wing women's-rights advocate, he had to know that the actions and comments he engaged in were inappropriate -- he just didn't think that applied to him. It was a choice, not ignorance. Intense narcissism is no excuse for wilful ignorance.
There has been a lot of praise across social media for Prince since the news of his death. Even as I write this, I can't quite come to terms with that phrase. As he would say, "something in the water does not compute."
I loved TV, so to enjoy the adventures of (the bionic) Steve Austin or Jim Rockford or Fonzie and the Cunninghams, I had to endure the obvious social-engineering messages that reminded me I was an outsider.
Then along came David Letterman.
Just last week, Canada’s telecom regulator, the CRTC, announced the end of mandatory channel bundling. They also sounded the death knell of specialty channels, including MuchMusic and History, which a...
As many of you have read, Bell Media recently axed 91 jobs from MuchMusic, ostensibly gutting the iconic music station into a shadow of its formerly glorious self when Znaimer and John Martin founded the "temple of rock" in 1984. But an online movement to bring Much back to its original founder Moses Znaimer is picking up steam.
A former Much personality has a compelling idea for how to help the
Music television fans have been lamenting the death of MuchMusic for years now as the channel slowly evolved from "The Nation's Music Station" to simply Much, a genre-less cable network with much more...
The 25th anniversary of the MuchMusic Video awards will be celebrated this Sunday night in Toronto. It’s pretty crazy to think that the MMVAs have officially been around for a quarter century. Where d...
After 15 years as MuchMusic's "other" channel, MuchMore is being rebranded. Now called "M3," the channel is meant to be a destination for 30-somethings, with a slate of music, the hottest scripted ser...
If you were a Canadian kid fascinated by popular culture in the 1990s -- former MuchMusic VJ Tony "Master T" Young was the coolest personality on TV. Upon his retirement from a busy TV career more tha...
When MuchMusic compiled its Top 200 videos of 2012 list, sitting rather unobtrusively at number 77 was gloom-rapper D-Sisive's "Don't Turn The Lights Out" feat. Neverending White Lights. Seventy-seve...
Not many award shows can make a combination of mermen, Korean pop stars and "Chavril" work, but that's exactly what the 2013 Much Music Video Awards did Sunday night in front of a sectioned-off block...

Canada's First Couple of Music made their MMVA 2013 red carpet debut as a couple on Sunday night. Chavril, as they've become lovingly (patronizingly?) named, wore matching rocker outfits: Chad Kroeger...
When Avril Lavigne sang "Here's to Never Growing Up" at the 12th annual MMVAs, it felt a little odd coming from a performer who became infamous for mooning the MMVA audience over a decade ago (acciden...
If we've learned anything from from the past decade, it's that the MMVAs 2013 red carpet is going to be one crazy event. At the Much Music Video Awards we aren't likely to see sweeping Dior ballgowns...
The MMVAs has showcased some of the biggest names in music performing on our very own street (Queen St. West that is) From Kanye West and his daunting 'Jesus Walks' to Arcade Fire bringing a marching band into the storied studio, to Drake and Bieber walking the red carpet together, it's a night that never ceases to impress. This year promises to be no different, and I'm a part of it!
If the Much Music Video Awards of yesteryear have taught us anything, it's that the 2013 MMVAs red carpet is bound to be a raucous and outrageous affair. From Avril Lavigne's bare butt to Lady Gaga's...
Pop rockers Marianas Trench's use of a gospel choir during their Juno Awards performance of "Stutter" must have caused some divine sympathy because they lead the pack with six nominations at this year...

To those of us who immigrated to Canada in the 1990s, Namugenyi "Nam" Kiwanuka was our introduction to Canada. She was a smart and engaging celebrity MuchMusic VJ. As if being a new mother is not occupying much of her time, the Ugandan native has used whatever time she has left fulfilling the promise of her Canadian citizenship by bringing attention to worthy causes all around the world.
The Luv-A-Fair was a giant warehouse at the intersection where the red light and gay districts met. The bouncers were tough and mean. There was one incident where a bouncer had not only barred a yahoo from entering the club, but also chased him around the block wielding a bicycle chain.
I got the job with MuchMusic. It's a 24 hour music station that plays videos, sort of like radio on your TV. Do you have such a channel over there in the U.K.? My role is rock and roll newsman for "the nation's music station." It's exciting, intense, aggravating, and glitzy all at once.
I've had a wee bit of a media boner for George Stroumboulopoulos since his early days on MuchMusic, schooling young Canadians on all the kickass alternatives to pop and mainstream music. I've chatted with him briefly at events over the years and he's always obliging and engaging, no matter how busy he is or how many other admirers are waiting in the wings to talk to him. Which is why I thought I'd publish a list of reasons to love Strombo.
Canadian Beliebers are all hot and bothered now that Justin Bieber is coming back to town. The pop star is returning to Toronto to tape an exclusive holiday special for MuchMusic and CTV. 'MuchMusic P...
