MTV VMAs 2012: Seven Things That Sucked and Seven Things That Didn't Totally Suck
3. One Direction Sweep/ Total Failure of Beliebers Everywhere
What the hell, Bieber fans? We thought you were supposed to be the best? Now that you've grown up a little, you don't sit and vote for your boy no more? You're going to let this gang of pussies, One Direction, take over the heartthrob scene? Bieber didn't win one thing last night, and these new kids on the block swept the entire show! Shame on you, Beliebers. Sucks to suck.

On second thought, maybe this wasn't so bad after all. We needed a poop break.
1. The Cheap, Cheesy, Hollow, Soulless Feeling of It All
Real talk ... The reason we all like making fun of the VMAs is because they totally and undeniably suck. Sure, they pump a lot of money into the production and presentation. But you can put sprinkles on a turd and we still won't eat it. Most of these performers are hacks, relying more on their packaging than any real distinguishable talent. And it's all so awkward, like being forced to sit through a high-school talent show in a musty gymnasium. The best thing about VMAs is hoping Kanye will ruin someone's moment. And there was none of that Imma-let-you-finish drama this year.
So fuck 'em.
