Lorde Wins Best Rock Video at MTV VMA’s, Wait What the Hell?
A rock music category getting screwed over at a music awards show, because that has never happened before.
I have to admit I haven't watched the VMA's in probably five years. However, I was quite surprised when I heard who won Best Rock Music Video - Lorde, with her song 'Royals'. So I didn't get the memo here at The Buzz that Lorde was considered rock. I always considered that song a pop song that our sister station 92.9 NIN would play.
Lorde beat out, Linkin Park 'Until Its Gone', Imagine Dragons 'Demons', The Black Keys 'Fever' and Arctic Monkeys 'Do I Wanna Know?'. I seriously don't know how Lorde made it into the category, but somehow she won. I would take anyone of those bands winning in a rock category over Lorde.
Don't worry we have no plans here at the Buzz to start playing Lorde. In case you haven't heard the Lorde song, check it out below.
