MTV Video Music Awards 2012 winners & losers
Remember when the MTV Video Music Awards were good for at least on controversial moment? Kanye West stealing Taylor Swift's thunder, Madonna macking with Britney (and Christina!) and a freaky meat dress from Lady Gaga are just three that come to mind.
What's happened? The 2012 edition, which aired Thursday, was as homogenized as British boy band and double winner One Direction. Sure, there were a lot of bleeps and some overproduced and/or off-key performances. But that was about it.
Lil Wayne had the right idea by wearing headphones and listening to his iPod the whole time. This show was pretty much a snoozer. OK, there were a few good performances.
Check out the gallery of the night's winners and losers and let us know what you think.
