Yesterday brought with it the nominations announcement for the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. And while the likes of Drake and Justin Bieber are likely smiling following their nods, Nick Jonas seems to be taking his lack of acknowledgement personally.
Full story below…
Following the reveal, the 23-year-old took to Twitter to vent his annoyance at the lack of love shown to of his Tove Lo collaboration ‘Close.’
Disappointed with the fact Close got no love for the #VMAs2016

Despite amassing over 100 million VEVO views with the critically praised visual, ‘Close’ was shut out from the entire list.
The ‘Jealous’ belter isn’t the only artist whose visual contributions went under the radar. Taylor Swift’s ‘Out of The Woods’ also went without VMA recognition, much to the surprise of her supporters.
Leading the way with nominations this year are Beyonce and Adele – who hold 11 and 8 category’s respectively. Kanye West, Drake and Justin Bieber follow close behind with several nods each. Catch the VMA’s when they descend on New York’s Madison Square Garden on August 28th.
Was Nick robbed?
