The MTV Video Music Award nominations were announced today. Justin Bieber and Megan Thee Stallion lead this year’s pack, for whatever that’s worth — I’m honestly too old to care much about the VMAs anymore.
Even so, it’s a big enough deal for Eric Alper and I to confer about in today’s Sonic Reducers segment. Join us as we talk about the nominations, try to figure out if award shows really matter anymore (spoiler alert: They don’t), and scoff at their plans to hold the festivities live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center next month. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
