    is this a joke????? How about this one…

    Judas- Lady Gaga [Mama monster teaches you how to flop a career in 3 months].

    That lists sucks. Didn't you bitch about Eminem's video glorifying domestic violence when it first came out?

  3. 3

    This category seems ridiculous. The last music video that really moved me into thinking it had a 'message' was Christina's Beautiful. It was understated and perfectly exemplified the song. However, all of these videos do not make me stop and go 'now that video is saying something!' Videos with true messages come along once every ten years or so… this category is a joke.

  4. 4

    What!? Rihanna? Lady Gaga? Taylor Swift? KATY PERRY? MTV music awards should just be re-named the 'Music awards that only Top 5 artists can win.' It's all just advertising and commercial pushing. Honestly… Well at least the tweeny-boppers will be happy.

  5. 5

    Who the hell watches the VMA's anymore?

  6. 6

    LOL! Lady Gaga all the way. SHE FUCKING RULES ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  7. 7

    This puts me in mind of the morality plays that were so popular in the middle ages; they were little else but religious propaganda. I prefer my entertainment without messages mixed in, thanks; I certainly don't look to any of the listed "artists" to teach anyone anything useful or constructive.

  8. 8

    The second I read the category, I automatically thought of P!nk! So glad to see that song made the list. I hope it wins. So many of her songs over the years have had messages and as usual people don't give her the recognition she deserves!

  9. 9

    Taylor Swift is the clear winner here.

  10. 10

    We will win this for Mommy Monster! Mark my words!

    Re: tellall – She DOES rule!! She's rules over a kingdom of fat, bullied, socially inept virgins who live to be brainwashed!! Lmfao!! Thank goodness she's so darn pretty!! LolZ!! :-)

  13. 13

    Re: dodgyend – Taylor Swift is def. a cock whore!! She must be gettin' sooooo much cock meat since she started putting out the same song over and over and over and over and over…’cause when you're 15 and somebody tells you they love you you're gonna agree to give them head and spread it!! Lmfao!!

    tranny caca gives birth to a heap of bullshit more likely. that`s a joke, right?

  15. 15

    oh c'mon, at least one of those video's mario posted yesterday with "Lady" and her friends "twerkin it" and "yankin it' should totally be up there!! sends a great message to inner city youth - this is how you shake your ass so you can get a real gansta and this is how you talk to him about your cooter………

  16. 16

    Re: ed69 – LMFAO! that's fabulous!
    Re: yeez – yes, yes he did (yet his "fans" still won't see the hypocrisy)

  17. 17

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – 12 - Gaga was sent from God to grace music on planet Earth. Lady Gaga is epic. Her songs are sensational. Her videos are awesome. The Lady is loved by all. She is queen of pop. :) :) :)

  18. 18

    Re: April 20th – OMG!! I know…right after I watched that 'twerk' video, I went down to my favorite Dominican and 'twerked' all fuckin' night!! lolZ!!

  19. 19

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – LMAO! stfu, your krazie……..(I say this with love - dont take me wrong)
    p.s. somebody said that was you in the twerk video…….hehehe…..

  20. 20

    Pink better win because out of all these videos, hers was the most inspirational and it actually told a story. Lady Gaga might have a chance of winning just because she's Lady Gaga. Born This Way was an ok video, but it really didn't convey the message of the song. If Katy Perry wins, I'm going to be so pissed because Firework is really not inspiring and the song annoys the hell out of me.

  21. 21

    This is lame. Who the EFF gives a ish about a music video with a message? Frankly when these artists give me a message I want to tell them to shove it. They don't experience the common world problems and yea sure maybe they did at one time.. but they dont even see us little people anymore from their lavish lifestyle'd pedistool. give me a fkn break.

  22. 22

    Re: April 20th – I wish!! lol

  23. 23

    Re: elica123 – Why are you screaming? lol

  24. 24

    SO STUPID!!! this years vmas are looking terrible

  25. 25

    it's so lame, it must be tranny caca's request!!!!if it's true at least Lupe's video "The Show Goes On" should be nominated, that song has a real meaningful message

  26. 26

    lady gaga or rise against should win. there is no doubt about it.

  27. 27

    This is the ILLUMINATI's way of making sure their latest slave, Lady CaCa, gets an award. Mark my words, this shit is so rigged and contrived….I will be among the first to scream Conspiracy. lol The only reason I think she'll get it is because her propaganda team has been pushing that shitty rip-off song all year.:)

    Re: tellall – You left out an O.Gaga is the queen of poop.

  29. 29

    Re: musicjunkie1993 – are you serious? have you seen rise against's video? didn't think so.

  30. 30

    Re: axreason – First of all, no need to get snippy. Your right, I didn't see it. But after I saw your comment, I'm watching it right now. I think the video is good. I'm not saying that they're bad, but let's be honest, if anyone was up against Lady Gaga, there would be a chance that she would win. I'm not saying that she should win. If I had to choose the two front-runners, it would be Pink and Rise Against.

  31. 31

    of course gagas is always the weird one.

  32. 32

    For sure gaga sucked some peepee to get this "category" added, shes so funny lol and if why isn't Man Down by Rihanna nominated??? it's a pretty striking video and has a deep message….hmmmm interesting bs

  33. 33

    LOLLOOLOL this shit is too funny…u know when the nominees came out gaga's ppl saw that she wasnt really nominated for much so they paid off mtv to put this bs category in just so she can win something a save face…we all know gaga will win this category and not bc she deserves it but because it was added on just so she can win. i hope ppl boo her when she does. she's already a become a joke when ppl started realizing her music is a bad ripp of other ppls, her personality suks , she is fake and money hungry and quite hideous to look at

  34. yeez says – reply to this


    Re: noe_rie – That's actually the first video I thought of when I read the category. 'Words I Never Said" was really well done, too. The fact that neither is included in this category is a huge snub to him, considering all his songs, hits or not, have a decent message. I guess you have to pander to the gays to be nominated.

  35. 35

    That Taylor Swift song is a joke. She has a song about people bullying her and how she is better than them for it, and on the same album has a song basically calling her ex's new girl a whore. Very classy Taylor, very classy.

  36. 36

    LMAO! theyre doing it just to give lady gaga another nomination lol but as we all can see they still nominate katy for ANOTHER category lol how many nominations does katy have now?? ohhh whatever i love katy and of curse BRITNEY!!!

  37. 37

    Re: rebecaqt – *OF COURSE

  38. @v@ says – reply to this


    This added category winners will be subjective choices, like all video winners are. Where music awards can be measured by sales, videos are art and as such, subjective.

  39. 39

    wow that's amazing. there shuld be a socially conscious category. brilliant!

  40. 40

    This is just some category that they can try to get Lady Gaga to win.

  41. 41

    Re: AshleyDuh – Bullying somebody and calling a legit whore a whore isn't the same thing. In Mean Taylor gets bullied for no reason.. not because she's some big slut.

  42. 42

    I hope Pink wins this category!! Lady gaga?? are u serious VMA?

  43. 43

    Ew..no. What a stupid category. Most artists are jumping on the anti bullying/equality for all band wagon. GaGa is the only retard to make her whole album era/gimmick about that. It's like MTV is trying to keep her relevant by letting her win this lmao. The End of Glory.

  44. 44

    i love gaga
    i love tellall
    popshidictator + britneyflop = shit fail

    Re: Samtra – Perfect statement…

  49. 49

    Re: bundroallday – agreed

  50. 50

    The VMAs are getting to be a real joke! Nothing against any of the nominated artists but why on earth have they included a new category at the last minute? If they were going to do it then it should have been included from the outset. As for the "message", getting a message from a video is a personal thing and songs/videos mean different things to different people. Its so personal that this category is a joke really and in any event will be won by whichever star gets the most fans voting for them online ;o)

    Re: madonna is shit – Screaming doesn't change facts, Little Turd. Sorry. :-) Grandma Munster's ”album of the decade” is a monster flop. My advice to you and to the other Little Turds would be to stay strong, pray, roll with the punches, and start downloading multiple copies of Elton John's 'You and I', asap!! LolZ!! :-)
