VMA Predictions

Video of the Year
Drake (featuring Rihanna)-Take Care
Gotye-Somebody That I Used to Know
M.I.A.-Bad Girls
Katy Perry-Wide Awake 
Rihanna (featuring Calvin Harris)-We Found Love 

Like the past couple of years the person who wins this award may not win other perspective categories.  Katy Perry and Rihanna have one each already, and I am not sure MTV is ready to give this to Katy back to back, although Rihanna has a shot, but I think it's part of Drake's video.  I think this comes down to the guys for the first time in a while.  Gotye vs. Drake.  My hunch tells me they will give this award to Drake, more commercial feature Rihanna, and is a top nominee.  The award should go to Gotye, of the nominees this is the best.  While people are not predicting Drake as much I think this underdog has a shot.

Prediction/Should Win: Gotye-Somebody that I use to Know
Spoiler: Drake featuring Rihanna-Take Care

Best Male Video
Justin Bieber-Girlfriend
Chris Brown-Turn Up the Music
Drake (featuring Rihanna)-Take Care
Frank Ocean-Swim Good

Bieber fever will probably strike again; he won this award last year, and will most likely win again.  The biggest threat is Drake who is one of the most nominated artists this year.  Frank Ocean would be a cool win and I think his video is pretty damn good, but this award is not his to win yet.

Prediction: Justin Bieber-Girlfriend
Spoiler Drake featuring Rihanna-Take Care

Best Female Video 
Beyonce-Love on Top
Katy Perry-Part of Me
Nicki Minaj-Starships
Rihanna-We Found Love 
Selena Gomez and the Starships-Love you Like a Love Song

Four of the women in this category have never won.  Beyonce has won twice.  This award comes down to Katy Perry and Rihanna, and my money is that folks will want to finally award Rihanna in this category.

Prediction: Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris We Found Love
Spoiler-Katy Perry-Part of Me

Best New Artist
Fun featuring Janelle Monae-We Are Young
 Carly Rae Jepsen-Call Me Maybe 
Frank Ocean-Swim Good
One Direction-What Makes You Beautiful
The Wanted-Glad You Came

Lots of pop going on here!  Jepsen could win on mass appeal, but I think people are tired of calling, maybe? One Direction has that dreamy boy band thing going, which young girls swoon for.  All of these songs, but Swim Good were massive hits.  This is a tough pick, but boy bands win out!

Prediction is One Direction.
Spoiler Carly Rae Jepsen
