MTV VMA 2009 Winners


If you don’t feel like watching the entire MTV Video Music Awards which (including commercial breaks) was about two and a half hours long, here’s the most important information you need to know: the winners!

Below is a list of the nominees with the highlighted winners for each category.

Video of the Year
Beyonce, “Single Ladies”
Lady Gaga, “Poker Face”
Eminem, “We Made You”
Kanye West, “Love Lockdown”

Thank God Beyonce won. Granted, Beyonce deserves the award because her video is amazing, but I think Kanye would have done unspeakable things if she hadn’t.

Taylor Swift, “You Belong With Me”
Lady Gaga, “Poker Face”
Beyonce, “Single Ladies”
Katy Perry, “Hot n Cold”

Taylor Swift… Don’t interrupt me. I’m not done yet and there are like a thousand more categories.

T.I. featuring Rihanna, “Live Your Life”
Eminem, “We Made You”
Kanye West, “Love Lockdown”

T.I. wasn’t there to accept his award. He’s in prison.

Best Pop Video
Britney Spears, “Womanizer”
Lady Gaga, “Poker Face”

Yay! I miss Britney… Her outrageous antics are much more fun than Kanye’s.
