2014 Billboard Music Awards

It’s only been about a couple months since the avalanche of awards shows came to a close, but as we all know, celebrities needs a constant stream of assurance or else they will cease to exist in their dimension and fall back into ours. And so, The 2014 Billboard Music Awards were last night to celebrate people who actually do the right thing and buy their music (seriously, it’s like $10 for an album. Barely a dollar per song!) and here’s the list of winners …

Top Artist
Justin Timberlake

Top Hot 100 Song
“Blurred Lines” – Robin Thicke & Pharrell

Top Billboard 200 Album
“The 20/20 Experience” – Justin Timberlake

Top Duo/Group
Imagine Dragons

Top New Artist
Lorde

Top Male Artist
Justin Timberlake

Top Female Artist
Katy Perry

Top Hot 100 Artist
Imagine Dragons

Top Billboard 200 Artist
Justin Timberlake

Top Social Artist
Justin Bieber

Top Streaming Artist
Miley Cyrus

So basically, Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry won all the big stuff, and also Imagine Dragons, which I assume would be a band I loved in high school but of which I’m barely aware of now that I’m old and crotchety. My kids never call … oh, and it’s nice to see Justin Bieber continuing to get his one obligatory award so the Beliebers don’t throw a tantrum. He’s had a hard year, he could use a pity throw every once in a while.
