How about the other categories? They are considered as Best Video without a Message?

I don't think VMA is going anywhere with this kind of nominations...

Re: 2012 MTV Video Music Awards - September 6th

Looking back to the previous winners...there hasn't been a well deserved winner since Work It by Missy, well, Poker Face by Gaga and some of the Britney's videos are probably still deserved winners, the rest of them is just, well.

Re: 2012 MTV Video Music Awards - September 6th

Pretty much any category Justin Bieber is in, he'll win because of his legion of 10 yr old girls.

I expect Rihanna to do well also, maybe better than Katy Perry since Katy won a couple last year.

But who knows, the nominations are atrocious and really highlight how shitty music is these days.

So many up there nominated, so talentless.

Oh and no Lady Gaga this year, she already said she wasn't attending a couple weeks ago due to her tour. Maybe that's why she wasn't nominated.
