Cultural tourists ransacking last night’s MTV Video Music Awards fell for the okie doke. The biggest travesty of the fete was Iggy Azalea losing to the latest teen heartthrob flavor in the "Artist to Watch" category. Meet Iggy.
She tweeted out optimism after the defeat.

Her award submission was her debut single, "Work." She knows of what she speaks.
Miley Cyrus is under some well-deserved siege for hijacking hip-hop music and twerking for her own dastardly ends. Not only has Azalea held her own in rap cyphers with T.I., she's more physically adept.
As a country, we all need a break from twerking, so click here once your sensibilities have recovered.
At the end of the day, no one knows who Austin Mahone is. A white Aussie/Texan female rapper moonlighting as a model has a certain staying power. Iggy, you have my vote.
