      Note how none of the nominated acts are openly gay or bi men. Not even one.

      You are more likely to find an openly gay or bisexual man at Pat Robertson’s house-warming party than on the list of nominees for the MTV video music awards.

      Who knew MTV still had anything to do with music videos.

      There’s a difference between a good song and a good music video. MTV used to award artistically creative music vids. Since the late 90′s they began awarding whatever was most popular.

      Visually, even though it’s not a great song, the best vid of the past year was Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks.

      Fortunately, this is a fan-voted category. I just voted for this video:

      Aside from the face that I like the duo, I appreciate the message of this song.

      Of course the ulterior motive of this is that this is one of the few songs with an openly gay rights message as opposed to just a pro gay message or having it hidden in the subtext. It is also one of the few songs that is actually getting airplay. I was pleasantly shocked the other day when I heard it over the radio, I live in the bottom of Alabama and wasn’t expecting it. I don’t know if it is a sign of change or if it does any good in and of itself but I would vote for it just because it’s catchy and I do like gospel-influenced R&B even if it is rap.
