"I was able to fast-forward through [the VMAs], yes. These pop songs almost feel like tabloid journalism, in a way. It’s crap that people seem to like. And I don’t know if it has meaning. I don’t know if one of the pop songs of the summer has any fiber in it. People are consuming it, and is it healthy? I don’t know. Maybe it’s some kind of way of taking themselves away from their problems. Maybe there’s some healthy property or some restorative property that I’m not receiving. It seems like it has a really high fructose content."

Eddie Vedder (third from right) talks pop music in the new issue of Rolling Stone (via The Sky I Scrape)
