Britney bombed. Justin used his time to ask that the channel play videos. Kanye worked the hardest at putting on a good show, then lost every category, pleaded, "give a black man a chance," and says he won't come back. MTV throws them a huge party every year, and still, people in the music industry hate MTV. We all know that the M is for music — the problem is that these days, there is no M in MTV.
