Home Celebrity Grammy Redux: Billboard Music Awards Are the Exact Same Names as Grammys,...

Just in case you missed the Grammy Awards or, God forbid, the American Music Awards, here’s another awards show congratulating the exact same people yet again. The Billboard Music Awards, coming just after the I Heart Radio Music Awards, are daring enough to tout Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Sam Smith, Pharrell, One Direction, and so on.

This was a challenge– look at the charts, and write down the names. The show is May 17th from Las Vegas, where all these people will be playing Caesars Palace in 10 years. This way, they can get familiar with the neighborhood. The BMAs have a top Social Award. This is for the “artist” who socializes the most. The winner must be Justin Bieber, who is not nominated for anything to do with music. You’ll always find him in the kitchen at parties.

Not nominated: anyone imaginative, different, cutting edge or indie. This way, the music business remains in quicksand. Zayn Malik is being considered for the Lifetime Achievement Award (just kidding!)

PS It seems fitting that I just received this press release: Kelly Clarkson has just released a new line greeting cards, and she’s selling them in Wal Mart. So Joni Mitchell of her…
