Something unfortunate that is connected to MTV is the loss of so many of its young stars on the network. Although there have been a few tragic deaths that had nothing to do with MTV, it seems that the amount of young person deaths is higher than any other network.

People have begun to criticize MTV for launching less-than-ordinary people into stardom and then moving on from them once people get bored. These young and ex-stars then no longer know what to do with their lives and get mixed up in the vicious cycle of drugs and alcohol and eventually die like so many other ex-MTV stars.
