It seems as if Beyoncé’s self-titled surprise album last year hit the right spot because the Drunk In Love (questionable according to reports at this stage) cracked 8 nods for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. The star has been nominated in prestigious Video of the Year category, alongside Pharrell, Miley and Iggy… Oh and Sia. Very tough category, but it’s nice to see such a competitive category. This isn’t the only category that Beyoncé’s fans will have to hope and pray she wins – stiff competition from Ariana and the like. Check out the full list of nominees below and to see the awards, diarise the 24 August. They’ll be taking place at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Pity I’m one month shy of attending the awards. I’ll be States side a month later, but hey… let’s see what happens. Maybe I’ll get lucky. *Coughs, drops a hint haha.

Any fans of MTV’s Geordie Shore out there? Well if you are and you happen to be in the Johannesburg area this weekend, best you hit the gym quickly, get your spray tans did and head through to H20 tomorrow because Holly and Scott are in town. And they’ll be there tomorrow partying hard with the rest of the H20 boychees and bints. They’ll be there from 12 and if the show is anything to go by, they wont be heading home early 😉
If you aren’t able to be there, then don’t worry too much. The fifth season of the hit show kicks off on MTV this coming Tuesday (October 1st). You can tune in at 21:15 on DStv channel 130, MTV. Otherwise check them all out on Twitter:
Be sure to use the hashtag #GeordiesdoJozi too! I’m hanging with the two later today. If you have any burning questions for them, drop me a tweet or a comment below.
Well almost all of them… There’s nothing about the now infamous twerking at the VMAs performance, but Miley Cyrus does answer questions about her music video for We Can’t Stop and how she broke a record for the song. There will be loads of other videos and interviews like this coming out in the build up to Miley’s new album, Bangerz which is due out soon!
The MTV Video Music Awards are going to be massive this year. The fact that Justin Timberlake is rumoured to be reuniting with his ‘N Sync band maters; that Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus are all the talk of the town at the moment and that they’re all going to be there is a clear indicator that the VMAs will be #winning.
So in the build up to Sunday night’s big awards, there are several promos doing the rounds on the web. They’re awesome. Don’t believe me? Check them out:
Katy Perry has the eye of the tiger in her promo…
Justin Timberlake will perform on the VMA stage for the first time in six years and he’s getting a special award too!
Here’s Lady Gaga’s Applause promo:
Miley gets sexy:
Here are a few other promos:
The MTV Video Music Awards will go live to the world from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on MTV. For peops on my timezone, they’ll be on DStv Channel 130 at 03:00 CAT on Monday 26 August. Check your local listings for times.
If only I was a bit younger… sigh! Anyway, sob story done 😉 Aspiring VJs, it’s your chance to shine… MTV Base is looking for a new VJ and this is your last chance, as auditions roll into Jozi today. No pressure fellow Jozi residents, but the City of Gold needs to outshine the rest of the country ya hear? Good!
The auditions are taking place at Melrose Arch today. You’ll need to impress the very talented judging panel, comprised of comedian Joey Rasdien, your Queen B, Bonang Matheba and of course the original VJ winner, Sizwe Dhlomo. You know they’re young and entertaining, so that should be a good indicator as to what you need to bring to the auditions.
If you win the competition, not only will you get a cushy gig of a lifetime at one of the most iconic brands in the world, but you’ll be driving there in style. There’s a Citroën DS3 Cabrio up for grabs too. Not too shabby huh?

If you want to know one thing about it, it’s that I always wanted to be an MTV VJ. I had aspirations of being a VJ on the hugely popular show, TRL… I mean who didn’t want to interview some of the biggest names in the game, live and direct from Times Square in New York City (only the best city in the world might I add). Sadly, the closest I got to that was actually being an audience member back in 2007 and shortly after the MTV pulled the plug on the show.
The dream of working in NYC is still there and maybe it will be more behind the scenes at MTV, but that’s a side note. If you’re young, funky, fresh and fly and you want to work at MTV Base then here is your chance. The music network is once again embarking on its VJ search and you could be the chosen one. Auditions take place in Umhlanga this weekend and if you think you have what it takes to join the likes of Sizwe, Nomuzi Mabena and many others then head on down to Gateway Theatre of Shopping this Saturday.

You’ll know by now that Snoop Lion is jetting into Durban in the next day or so. This is ahead of Saturday’s MTV Africa All Stars concert, which is taking place at the People’s Park, Moses Mabhida Stadium. I’m heading down on Saturday to hopefully catch Snoop on camera, as well as some of the other acts. Side note, I’m happy the Durbanites are getting a concert for once.. I know y’all often feel left out, so here’s to making you happy*
And with that, I can let those of you in Cape Town and in Jozi know that Snoop will be in your hood too. He’ll be out at the Ellis Park Arena on Sunday evening, followed by a concern at the Grand Area GrandWest on the 21st. AKA and Jack Parow will be the support acts for ‘the Lion’.
