Foo Fighters Drummer

Jared Leto shouldn't have gotten so upset when MTV decided to give him his "Best Rock Video" VMA award BEFORE the big show ... because the awards "don't f**king mean s**t," so says Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.

In case you missed it, Leto told the Huffington Post he felt dissed by the pre-award ... saying, "Rock deserves a place there."

But Hawkins thinks Leto just needs to get over it ... telling TMZ, "Who cares? Those awards are nice but they don't f**king mean s**t."

Now THAT'S rock 'n' roll.

Agree 100% - the awards mean nothing. It's all about how much money the show can generate. Because of the Miley fiasco this year, MTV will be able to charge double for commercial time next year, and the cycle continues year after year...

MTV sucks anyway. The only time they play so called "music " is during the vmas that only play songs for little girls and f*gs

He's right, the VMA's and MTV have become as relevant as TMZ.

GO TAYLOR! The VMAs are a JOKE. They pander to the masses, instead of realizing that NOT everyone loves disposable POP music. (And Rap too) There ARE some of us out there who LOVE ROCK, and we're ignored and ridiculed. SO WRONG. And the Foo Fig

That's interesting to learn. I thought pop and hip hop was just pushing R&B into extinction. I didn't know it was happening to rock too. Bye bye real music. Synthetic music that is void of instruments and good looking performers with no actual vocal talent are taking over.

He's certainly correct. I'm glad thrash metal or jazz isn't represented by MTV. That would be oversaturated suckage.

MTV is irrelevant now .So therefore an VMA means nothing at all.

MTV used to be good back in the day, but they sold out, big time! Now all they play is rap and crappy tween music (If you can call it music). Not to mention all their so-called 'reality' shows, where they help to promote teen pregnancy and american stereotypes. VH1 classic, or Palladia are the only decent channels to watch anymore!
