The 2012 VMA nominees: battles, BFFs, and boy bands!
The 2012 MTV VMA nominations are out! You've probably got many opinions about them (NO KRISPY KREME!?? DUDE WAS ROBBED!), and so do I. But because I'm the one with the mic (I have no idea how that happened), let's talk about a few interesting things I've noticed about this year's VMA nominees.
1.) Rihanna's got one of the biggest potential VMA hauls -- she's up for five VMAs. Katy Perry's up for four VMAs, and they're battling each other in head-to-head hot-girl-to-hot-girl competition in four different categories: Video Of The Year, Best Female Video, Best Art Direction and Best Visual Effects. My thing is like, I hope this doesn't affect their BFF status, you know? I actually hope they each win two each for the sake of parity and for the sake of friendship.
2.) Rihanna's got four different videos on the board -- "Take Care," (which she's nominated for with Drake), "We Found Love," "Where Have You Been" and "Princess Of China" via Coldplay. If you're Rihanna, how do you choose your favorite video? Do you think she does that thing my mom did, where she told me and sisters that we were each her favorite so we'd all think we were the most special in a backward way? Like, HOW DO YOU CHOOSE? Thankfully you guys are doing the voting.
3.) Five of the six professional VMA categories feature a video Rihanna was in. The point is, if you want a cool-looking video, make sure Rihanna's in it.
4.) Speaking of Rihanna, both Drake and Chris Brown are battling each other in the Best Male Video category... Awkward.
