[photogallerylink id=89050 align=right]The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards are out and it looks like they forgot someone. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Taylor Swift[/lastfm], who is currently nominated for 6 Teen Choice Awards, didn’t pick up a single nomination. True, it might be a blessing for her, because we wouldn’t want another [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] incident. Taylor did put out three amazing videos, ”Story Of Us,” “Mean,” and “Back to December,” this year.

What’s up with that MTV?
