Video Music Awards from a network that completely abandoned video music a long time ago. Could this show be any more irrelevant?

Gaw, every time I see the Tyler The Creator, Yonkers video I get freaked out! I know it's just music, but he scares me.

These are just for the videos that are shown on MTV hits, those rock videos aren't even really rock videos.

Speaking of, this thing with Kanye and the other guy, is this what popular music is nowadays?
And Kanye looks like he has a load in his pants.

Is Justin beiber trying to look like a girl on purpose now?

Also those five noms for best rock video, this is what Rock is now?

One more thing, who is the woman singing into commercials with the leg cast?

She's not that skanky looking chubby blond they keep showing. She's on one of the steps with that crazy feather thing on her shoulder. My friend is going to be disappointed. Not exactly featured.
