    The 2016 MTV VMAs nominee list is finally in! It's crazy how fast these award shows seem to creep up on you. Seems like a only a few days ago that Miley Cyrus gave us that....memorable performance. A couple nominee groups this year are bothering me. For one, 'Video of the year'. The ONLY artist in that group that deserves the award is Adele. The others are a just dime a dozen. Another issue I have is how many times do we have to see Adele, Beyonce, Drake, and Kanye? Branch out a bit. There are so many artists out there that have a much better message and way of delivering it to the masses than 'Hotline Bling' and 'Famous'. I'm tired of seeing so many accolades going to the art with zero heart.
