    Fetty Wap over James Bay, George Ezra and Vance Joy? Really?
    Between the ghetto idiocy fetish and the obsession with Taylor Swift, I don’t wonder why Trump leads the polls.

    I miss the vma’s from years gone by where they actually choose great music videos as winners and you can actually feel the excitement and pride with your faves showing off their videos. It was a great show before the invasion of these non talents polluting the media today like kanye, the kardashians, minaj, Miley. Good lord, whatever happened to MTV and the music scene now?

    Bet Beyonce is somewhere.licking open wounds that she didn’t win. Maybe she’ll realize now that she’s over. Yet it was a very good show and entertaining.
