The 2010 VMA Nominations

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 4, 2010 | Comments ()


What is striking about the nominees is that no one seems to work alone anymore. Does everyone just swap partners like a musician's key party? Also, Ludacris made a video with Justin Bieber. That makes my soul weep. And seriously: Jaret Leto's band is still around? Why? Really. Why?

Does this list really reflect the current state of music industry?
