It’s time for the MTV VMA’s again! I’m really looking forward to performances by Adele, Beyoncé and Kanye West & Jay-Z and I really can’t wait to see the Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All crew presenting an award. I predict lots of “WOLF GANG” shout outs! Here’s all info about the show, the nominees and who I want to win (bold):

As the situation in Japan continues to deteriorate in the wake of Friday’s massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake, the need for assistance has spurred a number of stars to reach out to fans to enlist their help.
Just days after announcing the initial dates of his first tour, the My Violent Torpedo/ Defeat Is Not an Option Show, troubled actor Charlie Sheen announced that he will be donating $1 from each ticket sold to the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund.
Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has also gotten into the game quickly, designing T-shirts to benefit his band’s Music for Relief charity. One shirt features the image of a paper crane-like white butterfly above the LP logo, and the other one reads “Not Alone” in a red, white and blue font. Donations of $10 can be made by texting “MFR” to 85944.
