YEAH, B*TCHES. WE WON!
It’s time to lay down your swords, Bielebers and Directioners. The battle for “Most Share-Worthy VMA Video” is over! And though we know it was an incredibly close race, there can be only one victor. After what had to be the craziest, most heated Twitter competition of ALL TIME, One Direction won the VMA title for Most Share-Worthy Video for “What Makes You Beautiful” with 27,972,134 total tweets, (just barely) beating out Justin Bieber‘s “Boyfriend,” which garnered 26,563,153 total tweets. Also in the running were Carly Rae Jepsen‘s much-YouTube’d hit “Call Me Maybe,” Gotye‘s “Somebody That I Used To Know,” and Beyoncé‘s “Countdown” of epic Snuggie Boy fame.
I mean, we’re hardly running an electoral college here, but this race ended up being what our founding fathers referred to as “ridick” when they were drafting the Constitution that allows us to freely vote in a democracy. And stuff. But, we digress. We’d instead like to wish Harry, Niall, Louis, Liam, and Zayn a HUGE congrats for winning the VMA title (plus two other VMAs for “Best New Artist” and “Best Pop Video,” and to reassure all Beliebers that there are no hard feelings between JB and 1D. In fact, Justin Bieber and One Direction even celebrated last night by cooking a post-VMAs meal together! Because real men aren’t afraid to make peace over a rich and creamy alfredo.
