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.

The MTV awards are about as relevant as winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

VMA's havent meant anything since MTV stopped showing videos. Actually, they really didnt mean anything back then either. Everybody that won an award this year will be forgotton by the time AC/DC comes out with a new album! LONG LIVE ROCK!!!!

He is absolutely right. In fact all these awards shows are just crated to make these entertainers feel more important that they really are. Aside from being entertaining what do they really do? Most of them spend more time trying to get noticed and then want to be treated like they truly mater when in fact they are little more than well paid court jesters to be pointed at and laughed at.

Well, he's right. Like most of these 'award' shows, they don't really make a bit of difference in the lives or careers of those that win/lose. The MTV awards are probably the lowest wrung on the ladder. So really, who cares.

He's right... MTV sold out years ago to the teeny boppers, it consists now of Miley Cyrus and boy bands and its so sad... I can't tell you how much I miss the 90's and when it was about the BANDS! And I mean real bands, not boy bands.

He nailed it.

Anyone that autotunes should be automatically removed from all radio stations immediately and should be prevented from every "singing" again. Please?
