The MTV VMAs is a pretty meaningless awards show in the grand scheme of things, but people still seem to treat it like music’s answer to the Nobel Prize. It’s the kind of thing that you watch for the crazy red carpet fashion and controversial performances, but the actual awards part is pretty much just secondary to everything else that the show has to offer.
One person who seems rather invested in the VMAs is Katy Perry, who took to Twitter today to throw some light-hearted shade at MTV for snubbing her sextuple-platinum hit “Roar” from the recently-announced 2014 nominations.
I'm good with my 569,000,000+ views on Roar 👋— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) July 18, 2014
Despite “Roar” missing out, Katy wasn’t totally snubbed like Lady Gaga was: “Dark Horse” picked up nods for Best Female Video and Best Collaboration.
