Rihanna Snubbed By MTV VMA Nominations

Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

Rihanna MTV EMA 2011The 2011 MTV VMA nominees are in! Though Katy Perry scored the most recognition with 9 nods, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna were not far behind.

However, Rihanna only received nominations for her guest appearances on choruses. Are we the only ones who feel she was snubbed?

Before the haters go NUTS, you don’t have to be a fan of her music to recognize that she wasn’t nominated for a single piece of her solo work this year. Not one. And this was her year – 5 back-to-back singles and 5 back-to-back videos (three of which went all the way to #1!) C’mon. You couldn’t even change a radio station or television channel without hearing one of her hits.

Nevertheless, MTV ignored “Only Girl In The World,” “What’s My Name,” “S&M,” “California King Bed,” and “Man Down.” The only thing RiRi was nominated for was her guest appearances on Kanye West’s “All Of The Lights” and Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie.”

Are they punishing her for her super-suggestive “S&M” video or her murderous “Man Down” tale? Her girl-on-girl kiss with Britney Spears at the Billboard Music Awards? Her on-stage drunken antics in Atlantic City? EXPLAIN MTV!
