Ladies and Gents, if you were curious just how relevant MTV is these days, here’s the list of winners at last night’s VMAs:

Video of the year: Britney Spears, “Piece of Me.”

Female video: Britney Spears, “Piece of Me.”

Male video: Chris Brown, “With You.”

Rock video: Linkin Park, “Shadow of the Day.”

Hip-hop video: Lil Wayne, “Lollipop.”

Pop video: Britney Spears, “Piece of Me.”

Dancing in a video: The Pussycat Dolls, “When I Grow Up.”

New artist: Tokio Hotel

Wow! Britney Spears and Linkin Park? Is it 2002, again? I honestly didn’t realize Britney still made videos; I thought she just blew second-hand smoke in her kid’s face during supervised visits and worked out at Ballys. And clearly rap metal is still going strong. Shame, that. It hasn’t been the same since … nope. It’s never been any goddamn good, save for FNM’s “Epic.”

Well, at least MTV redeemed itself by giving the best dance video to a fucking reality TV outfit. Jesus: No wonder they don’t play videos anymore. If those were the artists who dominated airplay, I think I’d air “My Super Sweet 16,” too.
