    No Lady Gaga? she had the best creative videos with G.U.Y and Applause . but that’s none of my business. i won’t be watching !!!

  • Carlos Perez

    I thought Katy Perry would slay… 2 nominations?? No Roar or Unconditionally?
    No Work Bitch for female video? No Gaga??
    Back to the boring Hip Hop awards…

  • nah

    So Gaga and Britney were snubbed (that GUY video was probably the best thing she’s done this era so far) and Katy only received ONE nomination? She should have received at least another one for Birthday or Unconditionally imho but whatever. At least Sam Smith was nominated for a few things so I think he’s the only reason I’ll be watching this mess. So many of my other faves were just practically skipped over, wtf.

  • Bull

    Work Bitch was britney’s best video in YEARS! the fact that she won for piece of me and wasn’t even nominated for work bitch is just telling how rigged this shit is. Blah. This show has been going downhill since the madonna kiss.
