Selena Gomez Was Robbed At The 2011 MTV VMA Nominations!

Selena Gomez wasn’t nominated for ONE MTV Video Music Award this year! Doesn’t that seem weird?

Apparently the folks over at MTV aren’t drinking the Selena Gomez Kool-Aid — or maybe they are blind — because they didn’t nominate our favorite little gem for even ONE MTV Video Music Award this year…and I actually thought she deserved it!

The 18-year-old starlet produced one vid in particular I thought should have been considered. “Love You Like A Love Song” premiered earlier this month, already has more than 17 million views on YouTube and is one of the most visually pleasing videos I’ve seen all year. Sure, it’s not conceptually elaborate, but neither are all of Katy Perry‘s videos — and she was nominated a whopping (and excessive) nine times.

Talk about overkill.

In “Love You Like A Love Song,” Selena sings her single in a karaoke bar, when she suddenly becomes a part of the kitschy karaoke video, transforming from a hula-hooping hippy to a ’50s convertible girl and more. Like I said before, it’s not super complicated — but it’s thoroughly entertaining.

Those of you who follow anything I write, know I’m obsessed with Selena, so perhaps that’s clouding my viewpoint. But I really don’t think so. If Katy was nominated nine times, Selena could have at least earned one.

Before you judge, watch “Love You Like a Love Song” again and tell me what  you think!

Love you like a love song’s music video is NOT good. It doesn’t make any sense at all! She dresses up like Justin, and sings in a karaoke bar?? Huh? I don’t get the video. They should maybe give Miley Cyrus nomination. She deserves it! She is so hard working.

Yh, sss is right sing or cant sing selenas videos are quite good. Isn’t that the point of vmas. And p.s she can sing and she sings meaningful songs that everyone can relate to her age group spans out to my mother and she is talented enough to act and sing . I admit she may be better at acting she should still have a chance at the vmas. She is a very talented young girl.

selena gomez wasn’t “robbed”. all of the extremely talented artists and musicians who are living on the street and playing in the subway were “robbed” because people don’t care about talent anymore. All selena is is a lucky girl with a studio, a bunch of crazy fans and AUTO TUNE (that thing that makes her sound like she can sing when she can’t. just thought i’d point it out because you obviously haven’t heard of it yet)
and this is coming from a selena fan but even i had to admit that it is true.

also she’s waaaay to squeeky clean to be on the MTV (a pretty risque channel)awards. this awards show is for teenagers and young adults so obviously they would include artists that that age group and not 7 year olds..

and logan was completely right. if i saw the awards and selena won over adele i would off myself then and there.

she was not robbed! vmas are only for the big names in the music industry like katy perry, lady gaga, rihanna, adele and others. they are big superstars who make real music which is not selena. she is an auto-tuned horrible singer that does not have any talent wat so ever. just because you like her doesn’t mean she deserves a vma nomination. demi lavoto is unbelievably talented and she wasn’t nominated but u didn’t say anything about her. she can hit high notes, writes her own material, can sing amazing live and is incredibly strong. she actually loves music and expressing herself through it. selena just “dabbles” in everything because she can’t do anything well. also, why do you think katy perry has so many hits then? because her music is good and because she is interesting unlike boring selena. katy broke records for her album. she had like 5 #1 its and a #1 album. does selena have that? NO. does selena also have sold out venues during tours? NO!
bottomline: slutena gomez was not robbed of an vma nomination . demi lavoto was robbed of an vma nomination.

i completely agree!!!
and the fact that adele and selena gomez could even be in the same category is just plain wrong.

Katy Perry has a lot of charisma and charm, by the way, but it’s debateable as to how well she can sing. High energy dance pop is the genre that most female recording artists go to if their actual singing ability is not particularly great. There’s a lot of “stuff” being done to those tracks to hide or disguise the singing itself. There’s a lot of studio-produced computer-enhanced alterations happening.
