The Video Music Awards Completely and Unfairly Snubbed Stitches

Better have his money when he comes a'collect.

This past Sunday, MTV aired the highly anticipated 31st installment of its Video Music Awards. Always an unpredictable and raucous night, there was unfortunately a black cloud looming over the entire telecast owing to the complete and total snubbing of Florida rapper Stitches.


Ever since "Brick In Yo Face" hit the Internet last April, we have had the Mazadi Vision-directed clip etched in our minds. (Also, we wish we loved anything as much as Stitches loves selling blow.) Of course, MTV itself never aired the clip, for presumably the same reason it never aired Neil Young's "This Note's For You." Namely, because of an overabundance of references to coke. Yet Young was nominated for -- and later won -- Video of the Year, while Stitches was left in the dark. While taste is subjective, we feel "Brick In Yo Face" more than holds its own against any of the other Video of the Year nominees, including Miley's "Wrecking Ball," which took home the award. And we're about to put the reasons why in your face. Now, wat'cha gon' do with it?


Iggy Azalea (featuring Charli XCX) -- "Fancy"
Director: Director X
Strengths: A fun revisiting of the 1995 film Clueless, complete with '90s aesthetics and a dead-on set design.
Lacks: I PUT THAT BRICK IN YO FACE! NOW WAT'CHA GON' DO WITH IT?!


Sia -- "Chandelier"
Director: Sia and Daniel Askill
Strengths: Masterful editing around a dance performance that's nothing less than utterly spellbinding.
Lacks: BETTER HAVE MY MONEY WHEN I COME A'COLLECT


Beyoncé (featuring Jay-Z) -- "Drunk in Love"
Director: Hype Williams
Strengths: The captivating charisma of hip-hop power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z apart from their lavish lifestyle and instead expressing unbridled affection on a black-and-white beach.
Lacks: I LOVE SELLING' BLOOOOOOOOOOOOW!
