Despite the fact that MTV long ago had one of the whores from The Hills take the “music” part of their title out back, pointed a sawed-off shotgun at the back of its head and put it out of its misery, they’ve decided they’re still going to do another year of the MTV VMAs in an attempt to try and make it seem like they’re still relevant when it comes to anything other than tanned Jersey Shore famewhores.

All right, let’s focus on the positives: First, Adele was nominated for seven awards. And Justin Bieber was only nominated for one, which I guess means we’ve finally learned to stop encouraging him, although Chris Brown has three for some reason, so if that isn’t the final nail in the coffin of MTV’s integrity, I don’t know what is.
