Aug 1st, 2012, 02:58 PM
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.

Aug 1st, 2012, 03:42 PM
Pretty much any category Justin Bieber is in, he'll win because of his legion of 10 yr old girls. :lol:

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. :lol:

So many up there nominated, so talentless. :o

~{X}~
Aug 1st, 2012, 03:44 PM
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. :lol:

Weren't people complaining last year that Rih always gets snubbed at the VMAs? Or was that a different award show? Anyway she has a gazillion noms now, even after calling MTV a bunch of ****s not so long ago. :lol:

The One That Got Away should be Katy's nom for Best Female Video and not Part of Me. I hope MIA or Gotye wins VOTY because those videos were actually really good.

Probably the song more than the video. :lol:

I mean as much as I find Rihanna completely void of any sort of real musical talent, it was a fucking catchy song.

I still enjoy hearing it when its on the radio. :tape: :lol:

Aug 1st, 2012, 10:57 PM
How did "Someone Like You," "The One That Got Away," and "Marry the Night" all miss out :help:. They were all very good. Hopefully Gotye wins although I do think WFL was the video of the year…

I never understand the nominations. How can Wide Awake possibly be Video of the Year and somehow not be Best Female video?

The VMAs are a joke in terms of actual achievements. The show is just a fun spectacle.

Well I know as a Gaga fan that I actually don't care that she wasn't nominated. She said she wasn't attending this year weeks ago so I didn't really expect her to be nominated.

I'll probably still watch the show, but in passing and not actually to watch it.

Well you may not, but your fellow stans obviously do because the made 'VMAs are nothing without Gaga' a trending topic on Twitter and they've said she was the main attraction for the past two years :lol:

Well I'll definitely agree 2 years ago the VMA's were pretty much all about Gaga just like 2009 was all about Beyonce, 2008 was Britney. Last year was supposed to be all about Katy Perry, but she didn't sweep all the awards, but still did well.

Last year was kinda just a clusterfuck. :lol:

But last year the main talking point was Beyonce's baby revelation and in 2009 it was the Taylor/Kanye incident.

She definately was the main star of 2010 though :)

The VMAs have always been a mess. I remember during Britney's peak, she would ALWAYS get snubbed by MTV. Then after her whole crazy era, they decided to give her pity vmas for one of her worst videos, "Piece of Me"

It was definitely tragic. I watched portions of it. One Direction taking home a lot of awards. :o

Nicki Minaj winning Female of the Year. :o
(Anyone else think Nicki's outfit was a copy of Venus' RG 2010 dress? :lol: )

Chris Brown winning Male of the Year. :o

Rihanna winning VOTY (Expected but :o )

The latest ratings on Wikipedia show that it lost about 5 million viewers from last year. :oh:

Lowest since 2006. :lol:
