My name is Jennifer and I am a casting associate at MTV. Right now we are casting for an upcoming episode of True Life. For this episode, we are looking for people who are at odds with their parents for one reason or another. Whether it is because of your major, relationships, or your lifestyle, MTV is interested in hearing your story. I would also appreciate if you could pass it along to anyone else you may know.
You can email your situations to Parents@mtvnmix.com with their name, age, location, phone number, and recent photo.
Thanks, and feel free to message me with any questions

OMG MTV IT'S WHAT EVERY ART SCHOOL STUDENT DREAMS OF
parents just don't understand
I remember one year my mom took me school shopping. It was me, my brother, my mom, oh, my pop, and my little sister. We all hopped in the car we headed downtown to the Gallery Mall. My mom started bugging with the clothes she chose. I didn't say nothing at first, I just turned up my nose.
She said, "What's wrong? This shirt cost $20," I said, "Mom, this shirt is plaid with a butterfly collar!" The next half hour was the same old thing. My mother buying me clothes from 1963. And then she lost her mind and did the ultimate, I asked her for Adidas, and she bought me Zips!
I said, "Mom, what are you doing, you're ruining my rep." She said, "You're only sixteen, you don't have a rep yet." I said, "Mom, let's put these clothes back, please." She said "no, you go to school to learn not for a fashion show." I said, "This isn't Sha Na Na, come on Mom, I'm not Bowzer Mom, please put back the bell-bottom Brady Bunch trousers."
But if you don't want to I can live with that but, you gotta put back the double-knit reversible slacks." She wasn't moved - everything stayed the same. Inevitably the first day of school came. I got in one little fight and my mom got scared. And said, "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air..."
Yeah man, parents just don't understand. My parents are always telling me I can't leave the house if thats the clothes I'm gonna wear. They threaten to kick me out if I don't cut that hair. Sometimes my mom even busts into my room and screams "WHATS THAT NOISE?" But I think she's just jealous, cause its the Beastie Boys.
