8 Times MTV Molded Our Childhood

Billboard

MTV brought us some of our best childhood, and teen memories. From the countdowns, the reality shows and the music awards, MTV taught us everything we probably shouldn't have known about until we were much older, and we loved every minute of it.

1. The Real World.

We learned so much from the beginning seasons of this show. I learned way too much about sex, and a very skewed version about what life would be like when i'm in my 20's. This was the type of show that you grew so attached to every character and then once a new season started you completely forgot who was even on the season before. You can tell that this show was the best because they currently have 32 seasons of it and counting. Maybe our kids will be watching it one day.

2. That time Avril Lavigne pushed Kelly Clarkson.

It's still very unclear as to what happened here, but to me it is quite obvious that Avril pushed Kelly off of her while trying to give her a hug. In Avril's defense, she just wanted to get her Moonman award.

3. When Justin Timberlake finally realized his worth.

When JT took his frosted tips and left NSYNC. He then released "Like I Love You," and we learned to love him and all his ramen hair glory.

19 Ways Life Was Completely Different Before Smartphones

Having a smartphone these days is almost a necessity. You need them for work, you need them to talk to your friends, and you really just need them for basically everything else. They come in handy, sure, but it's hard not to look back on the days of being "off the grid" and remember how good that felt? When we were young, we didn't need to keep up with our friends and family at all times. We could just enjoy our day, talk to the people we were around, and actually go to the things we said we would at
