What better place than this venue to give such a speech? This audience needed to hear this speech. I am sure a few people took the message to heart. I am glad he didn’t save that speech for a more adult audience because these young people needed to hear what he had to say and he said it well.

I think it is important for teen idols to be role models as well. Perhaps that is what is happening to future generations; sure, laughter and fun are important, but so are good influences. Way to go Ashton for stepping up and taking that role!

Naturally I like it, since I’m older, but it was my 20 year old son who shared it with me. Anyone know why the video was removed by YouTube.

But the truth is that he never would have gotten anywhere without his looks and if someone average or ugly looking gave this speech people wouldn’t have cared about ‘being smart is sexy’. Fiona Apple gave a speech similar in not following what advertisers or ‘this world’ wants you to buy or be like and people got mad at her. So because Ashton is a good looking man he can get away with saying anything.

I think you’re an weird for trying to take something good, and true and try to make some ridiculous opinion to put it down so you can get some attention. Maybe follow some of his advice and build your life instead of living one of putting others down.

How is it weird to encourage teens to not be lazy entitled slobs? Ashton is 100% right.

How is this speech surprising? Are we forgetting the 2011 TCA’s where he told teenagers to not spend more money than what they had? And I didn’t find it weird. It’s the Teen Choice Awards and he wanted to impart some knowledge on teens. Not a bad idea.

Weird? What is weird about someone saying something that actually matters? What is weird is that someone thinks it’s weird!

One of the few stars who was actually a role model for the teens to look up to. Between the foolish outfits, the crappy music it was refreshing to think these teens were talked to with dignity, respect and intelligence. The show was horrible except for Ashton.
