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!
