HELLO EVERYBODY!!! I HAVE MISSED YOU!!!
I was actually in California and Las Vegas to see the concerts in Costa Mesa, twice, and Las Vegas. I have been in withdrawals from posting though. As I sat down to start this post on Wednesday, my computer was attacked by a virus!!! I am now begging, borrowing, and even stealing time on other people’s computers in hopes to getting everything up to date… bear with me and as always…

Was Adam Lambert snubbed by the MTV Video Music Award nominations?
The nominees for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards were announced earlier today and featured a record-setting number of nominations for Lady Gaga (13), as well as nods for Eminem (eight), Florence + The Machine (five) and Justin Bieber (one … wait, one? That kid’s getting his own 3D biopic and he gets just one measly nomination?).
Here’s who didn’t get nominated: Adam Lambert. Members of the former “American Idol” contender’s Glam Nation are ticked off that he didn’t get recognized in at least one category for videos like “If I Had You,” in which he sports a mullet ponytail while rocking out on what appears to be the set for the “Twilight” movies, accompanied by cast members from “Moulin Rouge” and “Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.” (I mean that as a compliment, by the way).
Of course, Lambert fans aren’t the only ones irked by the VMA nominations. Lovers of Rihanna (who received just one nomination), the Black Eyed Peas and Britney Spears are all voicing their objections in blog comments and on Twitter, where the hash tag #MTVFAIL is becoming more popular by the second.
Did MTV really mess up with this year’s nominations? Does it even matter? And most importantly, when will Kanye West Tweet about this pressing issue? (Could be a while. Dude’s on his way to Asia.)
Honestly, the VMAs are so ridiculous that it seems like a waste of energy to even bother getting upset by them. That being said, I have just one question: How on God’s green Earth did “My First Kiss” get nominated for anything? It looks like it was made in 1983. And no, I don’t mean that as a compliment.
