MTV FRAUD

@LopezTonight:
katy’s a failure, stfu.

# 5

Hahahahaha, Flopney was ignored!!!! Hahaha, poor failure!

# 6

MTV is so irrelevant now. I can’t believe anyone would even care about these awards anymore. The so-called artists/celebs and entertainment at the actual event just attempt to garner attention by being as vulgar and juvenile as possible. It’s pathetic.

# 7

Wow, I thot Rihanna had a cd out that has a lot of hits. And what happened to lady gaga and Kelly Rowland? Crazy

# 8

Britney is useless, a failure. Guyguy is a tranny. Bee is the best!

# 9

What about Jessie J?

Is this really necessary? What’s the point? Spoiled rich folks kissing each others a****. I hate the stupid red carpet “who are you wearing?” and those ridiculous poses the idiot stars do.

:( tgif????? et???? katy pery is a clown…. what the hell hjappens with the VMA????

Katy Perry sucks

Foster and the People are nominated!
it’s great that new artist are recognized

The worst choice of nominees in the history of the Mtv VMA’s.

No nomination for Christina Aguilera again??OH WAIT I FORGOT..She doesn’t have a Music Career anymore.LOL!!!!!!

i gave up on the vma’s years ago. mention one single memorable performance in the past few years. it’s unbelievable that britney’s ****** 2997 performance is most recent performance that people talked about the most. the VMA’S suck balls nowadays.

Adele better win every award!! Only real talent on that list!!

What Is Happen?Britney Zero nominees Video Of The Year.Beyonce Flop Girls (Run The World)
I Hate Anti-fan Britney So Stupid

@Ryanne:

Irrelevant? They’ve just had one of their most successful quarters ever the past few months.

Seriously – Adele?? 7 nominations for sitting on a chair?? The song is good but the video just isn’t!! The VMA’s should be about both the video and the song not one or the other!!

shadow2500 @ 07/21/2011 at 2:07 am

i love adele :-*

Because I Can. @ 07/21/2011 at 2:07 am

Can we all vote for Adele please? She’s one of the few artists that genuinely deserves her award.

Go for Katy and Beyonce
