2021 MTV VMAs Winners

Lil Nas X… shocking?

VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Cardi B ft. Megan Thee Stallion – “WAP”
DJ Khaled ft. Drake – “Popstar” (starring Justin Bieber)
Doja Cat ft. SZA – “Kiss Me More”
Ed Sheeran – “Bad Habits”
Lil Nas X – “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” — WINNER
The Weeknd – “Save Your Tears”

Comment: I love Lil Nas X and have been eagerly awaiting his debut album (which arrives this Friday). HOWEVER, Cardi B deserved the Video Of The Year

ARTIST OF THE YEAR
Ariana Grande
Doja Cat
Justin Bieber — WINNER 
Megan Thee Stallion
Olivia Rodrigo
Taylor Swift

Comment: I’m not going to argue with Bieber, his Justified is possibly his best album to date and “Peaches” -released in March, should have been all over the VMAs… yet can there be any doubt newcomer Olivia deserved this one way as well?

SONG OF THE YEAR
24kGoldn ft. Iann Dior – “Mood”
Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, Silk Sonic – “Leave the Door Open”
BTS – “Dynamite”
Cardi B ft. Megan Thee Stallion – “WAP”
Dua Lipa – “Levitating”
Olivia Rodrigo – “Drivers License” — WINNER

Comment: Meanwhile, no, “WAP” is the most important song of the year, a song that empowers women’s sexuality as directed directly at their most vulnerable and giving it power: that’s all. Sure, I might provide it to #BLM inspired Noname or H.E.R. but since they weren’t nominated…

EXPLICIT!!

BEST NEW ARTIST, Presented by Facebook

June 2021: girl in red “Serotonin”
July 2021: Fousheé – “my slime”
August 2021: jxdn – “Think About Me”

Comment: why they weren’t pushing international artists, the WizKids of the world, is beyond me

One more thing: why was Taylor Swift ignored?
