One of the things I like to do with this Lifestyle Blogsite is to constantly keep you in the know about things to do and see around the city. When I learned the lineup about the upcoming Ozy Fest I opted to share that along with a little bit about the event. Since this information was new to me, I took it right from their website.

Here’s The Winners Of The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards

mtv video music awards 2017

Last night The MTV “Video Music Awards” for 2017 were handed out at The Forum in Los Angeles. Last years they did this at our own famed Madison Square Garden and I guess it was proper to give LA a chance for the next go round. Now, I must admit to the readership that I no longer even remotely watch the MTV network nor have much of an interest in its programming. As a Rock guy with a lean towards the Metal side of the fence, its kind of hard for me to sit through endless Rap and R&B stuff since its not my thing. Sure I loved Run DMC and some Grandmaster Flash along with a few other legends over the years but there is no connection in my world of today with that sound. I generally post the “Rock” category winners over on PiercingMetal.com to get our readers all fired up and lamenting the state of the music industy but over on “The Chronicles” I am giving you the whole list that was compiled thanks to the other entertainment websites and the MTV one itself to be on point. We are here to entertain you after all so lets take a look at the list and who went home with a “moon person” stateuette.

Video of the Year:
Kendrick Lamar – “HUMBLE.” (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope) — WINNER
Bruno Mars – “24K Magic” (Atlantic Records)
Alessia Cara – “Scars To Your Beautiful” (Def Jam)
DJ Khaled ft. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller – “Wild Thoughts” (Epic Records/We The Best)
The Weeknd – “Reminder” (XO/Republic Records)

Song of Summer:
Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi, Feat. Justin Bieber – “Despacito (Remix)”
Ed Sheeran – “Shape of You”
