…And The Nominees Are


Let’s face it. No one really watches any MTV award show (Video or Movies) anymore for the actual awards. Most people watch now for the fashion and the entertainment. We all camp out in front of our TVs hoping for another Kanye-like moment. …Right?

But now that the 2013 VMA Nominees have been released I thought it would be fun to put a twist on the musical nominations. VMA nominees like Justin Timberlake and Mackelmore (both sexy boys received six 2013 VMA nominations) have made a splash in the fashion world this year so I’m including my picks for the most stylish artists. *Please note that this is not a full list of VMA nominations*

MTV Video Music Award nominees:
Video of the Year
» Justin Timberlake, “Mirrors”
» Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Wanz, “Thrift Shop”  *This gets my vote because HELLO, it’s a song that incorporates shopping, fashion and there’s an amazing vintage fur coat in the video. Plus I have a serious crush on Mackelmore!*
» Bruno Mars, “Locked Out of Heaven”
» Robin Thicke feat. T.I. and Pharrell, “Blurred Lines”
» Taylor Swift, “I Knew You Were Trouble”

Best Male Video
» Justin Timberlake, “Mirrors” *This video was such a tear-jerker for me!  But “Mirrors” should  win just based on the fact that JT dances  in his crisp Christian Louboutins. In the end, fashion always wins!*
» Robin Thicke feat. T.I. and Pharrell, “Blurred Lines”
» Bruno Mars, “Locked Out of Heaven”
» Ed Sheeran, “Lego House”
» Kendrick Lamar, “Swimming Pools”
Best Female Video
» Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko, “Stay”
» Taylor Swift, “I Knew You Were Trouble”
» Miley Cyrus, “We Can’t Stop” *You can’t deny that Miley is having the best year ever! Her fashion sense is a little slutty these days but I admire her “unique” style and  her ability to literally rock anything with that solid body. I hope she twerks her way to winning that moonman!*
» Pink feat. Nate Ruess, “Just Give Me A Reason”
» Demi Lovato, “Heart Attack”
Best Pop Video
» Bruno Mars, “Locked Out of Heaven”
» Justin Timberlake, “Mirrors”
» Fun., “Carry On”
» Miley Cyrus, “We Can’t Stop”
» Selena Gomez, “Come and Get It” *I live for Selena! “Come and Get It” was a brilliant “breakout” song for the once Disney star and although the video had few costume changes, the scene with her in the meadow flaunting that black couture ensemble was heavenly.*

Artist To Watch, Presented by Taco Bell
» Twenty One Pilots, “Holding On To You”
