One of my favorite shows on MTV was “My Super Sweet Sixteen.” It was about a bunch of rich teenagers throwing the “best” party their city has ever seen and showcasing it to other teenagers who wish they could have that type of party…. They could if they had the money. Unfortunately, I was never able to have a huge party for my 16th birthday and that is why I loved watching that show. My family wasn’tt lucky enough to have tons and tons of money. (I did still have a great 16th birthday) BUT…… How did MTV go from the innocent “My Super Sweet Sixteen” to “Sixteen and Pregnant”?! The audience age has not changed but the shows and the maturity level of the shows have. I’m not saying that it isn’t a good show because for some reason I am drawn to them and think the stories are interesting. But maybe I am the only one thinking that…. Comments, answers? What do you think?
