Seriously. The time has come and gone my lovelies. When you recognize less than half of the ‘artists’ (and I use that term loosely) nominated, it’s time to hang up your hat, turn off the light and lock the door. At least I won’t feel sad for missing the telecast. Who am I kidding, I’ll probably still watch this train wreck that chose to nominate Miley Cyrus’s ‘We Can’t Stop’ for Best Female Video. I mean.. WHAT? What are these people smoking? I am genuinely asking. For a friend.
