You will notice today there is no winners list of Video Music Awards
. That is because all of the awards are pre-determined and invented with the goal of getting performers to show up and hopefully perform. I have talked about this before so feel there is no need to go into it all again. For those teens out there who still think the awards are not rigged or manipulated let us take a look at one category from last night. Best Rock Video. There were some strong nominations with Imagine Dragons, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys and Linkin Park. All of them had pretty decent years and any of them would have been a good choice to win the award. So, who actually won the award for Best Rock Video? Lorde. Yep. The show wanted her to come, but there were no categories they could slide her into that had already not been promised. There were no more new awards they felt they could invent for this edition so they stuck her in the Best Rock Video category and surprising no one in her camp, she won. Royals is a good song, although at this point I don't ever want to hear it again. It is not a rock song. It is not even close. Lorde showed up though and her bff Taylor Swift was there so Lorde had to get an award.
