The 2010 VMA Nominations

I love MTV's Video Music Award nominations because they are a reminder of how ungodly lame I must be not to recognize many of the names. In fact, of all the videos nominated below, I think I've only see "Bad Romance," "California Gurls," and "Empire State of Mind." How do people see videos anymore if MTV doesn't air them?

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?
