    Good GOD! Missy Elliot?! Please no! Everything about that woman is annoying. She definitely did not deserve that… I wish she would just disappear or something… There are other choices there I disagree with too, but I guess they’re not too bad. As long as BSB isn’t in the competition, I don’t care who wins. I’d vouch for Xtina, but Dirrty is far from her best video. “Fighter” is a much better one, but MTV obviously owns no taste whatsoever. I agree though, Christina will most probably get some nods at the Grammys – but seeing as her style has changed so much I doubt she’ll be bringing home any awards there either… This sucks. I can’t wait until AJ, Nick, Brian and Howie’s solo records come out… or for the next BSB album. It’s about time they come back and show MTV a thing or two ;)

    I really hate the nods.I think it was unfair that Beyonce got more nods then Christina.We all know Christina is better than her.And MTV didn’t even have the balls to nominate either Fighter or Beautiful.WTF?????? MTV is just scared that if they nominate Fighter and Beautiful that Christina will win and steal the show not only with her wins but her performance also

  3. tena says:

    Why is it unfair? Maybe she is better than Christina. She is a lot classier, a lot prettier and sings with more heart. That is silly, maybe those videos-beautiful (corny, corny, corny) and fighter-please a moth, how cliche, were not all that great. I hope Johnny Cash wins a few just to see peoples jaws drop to the floor.
