Mooks and Midriffs

A Mook is a man who doesn’t really care what people think of him, he acts ridiculous for attention. While a midriff is a girl who uses her body to get places. She will always look good for the people around her and feels empowered by her sexuality. Both of these personality types are around today. They may be slightly different, but they haven’t changes all that much. There are countless channels on YouTube dedicated to getting views and likes through acting these ways. There are tv shows and movies who star people like these. Just simply because they are mooks or midriffs. Mooks and midriffs are both a creation of MTV and a reflection of society. These types of people existed before MTV popularized them. But MTV made them huge. MTV has gone through massive changes. I remember when I was very young, I would sit for long periods of time watching music videos. I didn’t know at the time what I was watching. I didn’t know that the people on the screen were just personalities. But I loved them. I couldn’t wait to see the next video. But MTV has changed. They don’t play music television anymore. They have shows like The Jersey Shore and Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory. These are still star mooks and midriffs. The difference is, these shows last for half an hour not three minutes. I don’t know where MTV should go next. I don’t personally care for MTV anymore. I have the internet to watch music videos. It is up to the executives to figure out what people want.
