An award given out once a year to an "artist" who is apparently better than another artist. They usually belong to the genre of rap, or hip-hop and R&B. If the recipient didn't happen to fall into one of these genres, it's so that nobody would complain. This wasn't true until the last few years.
50-cent won 3 MTV VMAs last night because he is a good musical artist who has lots of talent. Nah, i'm j/k, its cuz lots of lil white girls sweat him.
