2009 VMA Nominees Are…

Lyz

The MTV Video Music Awards are anything but uptight. From Borat landing crotch-first on Eminem’s head, to Russell Brand making his highly-anticipated U.S. debut, these are not the Oscars by any means. This year, on September 13 (right smack in the middle of Fashion Week, so you can take a stylish breather), the 2009 VMAs will be host to God-knows-what; all we know is that this awards show is the best reminder of teenager-dom since Carson Daly, The OC, and making out in the back of your parents’ minivan listening to Death Cab.
