'Behind the Music' Resurrected


There was a time, and it wasn’t a very long time ago, when network’s like VH1 and MTV cared more about the music than what washed up celebrity is currently going through detox, or which spoiled rotten rich girl is having her sweet 16, but those days have come and gone--but not without a silver lining.

VH1, the network that used to take pride in their slogan “Music First,” have taken a giant leap forward as they are bringing the popular program Behind the Music back.

The re-vamped artist biography show will kick-off on Thursday, Sept. 10 with Cash Money rapper Lil Wayne and will follow with profiles on T.I., Bobby Brown and 50 Cent.

Behind the Music first aired in 1997 and had a nine-year run, until 2006. In between the time of the show’s hiatus, one episode aired in 2008 which looked at the career of 80s boy band New Kid’s on the Block.

So, hurray for VH1 and their attempt to bring a show back from the grave that actually showcases a musician and their struggles, rather than broadcasting their mistakes in the form of reality television.

One step at a time. One step at a time . . .
