Kreayshawn Gets Nominated Best New Artist at the VMAs--and Other WTF Moments This Year

Categories: Oh, come on now

I've never agreed with any award-giving body on who gets nominated or gets awards for best this or that, but this year's VMAs are akin to the year Milli Vanilli won Grammys over the Indigo Girls. (The fact that I date myself by remembering this hoopla means I'm really mystified by what's going on, too.)

And I love Kreayshawn's as much as the next bubblegum beat lover, but...c'mon. "Best New Artist"? She has ONE SONG out, folks! And, uh, no Lady Gaga in the "Best Video of the Year" category? That's just nuts. And no nominations for Rihanna? Weird.

And, uh, why is Tyler, the Creator's "Yonkers" video in "Best Video of the Year" but wasn't nominated in the hip-hop category? Katy Perry, Adele and Kanye West have the most nominations this year...where did everyone else go? (Last but not least--no ironic Rebecca Black nomination? Tsk, tsk, tsk, MTV!)

The other WTF moments:

  • Tyler, the Creator told MTV that getting nominated was "surreal." And then he said all his rivals suck except for Adele. "I'm really excited, shout out to Ron Artest. If I lose to any of those wackass videos, I'm gonna be mad because they all suck -- except for Adele's," he told MTV News. He also said, "The Best New Artist thing, that's cool. Wiz is a really good dude and I've been a fan of his music, so if he wins I'll be pretty excited. I wanna win that for sure, but Wiz is awesome, I've been listening to him since '08," he said. "Even Kreayshawn, she's cool. So if she wins that too, I'll be pretty stoked. But you know, I wanna win, I'm just gonna keep it 100."
  • Adele pisses Lady Gaga fans off in a major way: Twitter is full of comments such as "Adele probably ate Lady Gaga's other nominations" or "Gaga will not be wearing the meat dress at the 2011 VMAs because she is afraid Adele will eat her."
