@ANNIE: its mtv the award stop being relevant years ago plus they like videos like the one mileys has remember all of lady gaga’s videos or madonna’s . the only worth nominees are timberlake and pink i like selena’s song but i would have to wait for the hole album to judge if the songs deserve more awards nominations.
