Megan Thee Stallion, Ariana Grande Fans Erupt After BOTH Were Totally Snubbed at 2021 MTV #VMAs

Published: Sunday 12th Sep 2021 by Rashad

At the 2021 MTV VMAs, ‘Positions’ star Ariana Grande found herself in an unfamiliar position: empty-handed.

With 9 career wins to her credit, Grande is one of the most awarded female acts in the history of the MTV VMAs (only Beyonce, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift have more).

Entering the 2021 edition of the telecast with three nominations for work found aboard her sixth studio album, ‘Positions,’ her fans – affectionately called #Arianators – were keen to see that win count extended and enter double digits.  Two-thirds of the way into the ceremony, those dreams were dashed.

After losing to longtime friend Justin Bieber in Artist of the Year and Best Pop Video categories, she was later defeated by in the Best Choreography category.

Needless to say, her fans didn’t take the news well.


Similarly, her ’34+35′ co-star Megan Thee Stallion didn’t add any new Moonperson trophies to her collection either.

Despite entering the night as the ceremony’s most nominated act (6), Stallion – who was surprisingly absent from the show like Grande – was defeated in every category she was mentioned in by the night’s end.

    Awards shows only give awards to those who attend. If you’re not helping with viewership, they aren’t awarding these days lol

    You don’t get a trophy unless you show up so yeah we saw that coming. WAP was definitely robbed but idk what Arianators were expecting. Ariana and Dua have been running Pop recently but their most recent videos are not their most iconic

    To be fair, Megan and her manager missed the mark by not filming an MV for Savage Remix when it went to #1 so its definitely their VMA year to lose. As for Ari, she made a really good album and filmed some good MVs for the singles but they were simple compared to her previous works and barely featured choreography. This is called the VIDEO MUSIC awards for a reason!! PS: i’m a big fan of both artists

    Their labels & teams must not have paid the “nomination fee”. Because this entire show was straight up propaganda and bullish.
