Bruno Mars, Odd Future Added to VMA Lineup

Bruno Mars

MTV better beef up on security. Bruno Mars and adversary Odd Future will collide at this year’s Video Music Awards.

The “Grenade” singer will cap off a successful year by hitting the stage at the VMAs. He is nominated for four awards including Video of the Year, and will perform a song off his platinum debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans.

“We’re thrilled to have Bruno Mars bring his exceptional talent to the VMA stage,” said Amy Doyle, Executive Producer of the 2011 VMAs and EVP, Music & Talent, MTV. “He is one of the most exciting live performers today and with his artistic versatility, he will undoubtedly deliver a standout performance.”

Odd Future will bring the ruckus to the VMA stage as presenters. Frontman Tyler, the Creator is up for two awards, including Video of the Year. He previously tweeted that he would get violent if he lost to Mars, who he famously attacked on his single “Yonkers.” “IF I FUCKING LOSE TO FUCKING BRUNO FUCKING MARS IM GOING ON A KILLING SPREE. DEADASS,” he wrote.

Other presenters at the 28th annual show include Rick Ross, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Seth Rogen, and Jonah Hill, while Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, and Adele are scheduled to perform.

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 28, at 9 p.m.

    @idoit boii, Unique talent? In what? Shock value rap? Eminem already ran that into the ground.

    This guy is an idiot Bruno will crush him. I guess he better be planning a couple first degree murders because he’s not going to win a thing. I bet any and everything. “Odd Futures” fan base is too small, which is right because he sucks.

    Yay Bruno, he’s talented, do your research and i don’t give a shit about odd future

  12. LOL

    This year is sure to be a snoozefest. I only wanna see Adele and Bruno perform.

    [Reply]

  13. Wow

    Ha! We’ll see if Tyler and Chris have any words for each other. They SAY the beef is over but Chris clearly threw a shot at Tyler at the end of Snapbacks back and Tyler did an interview that implied he isn’t over it. Great for tv. Let’s see if Chris can beat someone other than a female.

    odd future is trash (except frank ocean). tyler and them got no flow and say things for shock value but dont stand by what they say in interviews. bruno, on the other hand, can write, sing, and produce #1 songs.

    Why is MTV catering to this loser group? This group promotes violence and makes awful music, why give them any attention?

    It was just reported that there will be a tribute to the legendary Ms. Britney Spears which will be epic and well deserved.

    They’re paying a tribute to the Queen, so now I have a reason to watch. Can’t wait!

  28. Saziqua

    Whaaat? Who says Bruno has no talent? Are you blind as well as thick?
    He’s been singing since he was like 2 feet tall lol! He writes songs with amazing lyrics (hence the number 1 singles), he writes other number 1s for other artists, he produces, he dances, he plays a number of instruments. AND he’s gorgeous. AND he has perfect teeth and skin. Jeez I could go on but I don’t think I need to prove my point any more. BRUNO TO WIN!!

    Tyler is one of the only nominees who’s actually put some excitement into music, as of late, because it’s controversial and it’s invigorating. Bruno Mars? He’s talented with his voice, I admit, but his music (personally to me, at least) is bland pop music. Tyler isn’t so much against Bruno Mars as he is against what Bruno Mars stands for, which is manufactured, contrived pop music.

    Bruno’s music is not stimulating in any way or form. I dare anyone to say Bruno Mars’ music is in any shape or form challenging the status quo.

    @Weaveney, wow, guess you haven’t heard Bruno’s album, don’t judge an artist based off singles. Tyler came at Bruno for attention and that’s what he got, period. If Tyler is so creative and blah, blah, blah he wouldn’t need to say shit about other artists, his ‘talent’ would speak for him.

    @kb, amen to that!!!!!!

    [Reply]

    Weaveney Reply:

    @kb, Yes, I have heard the album, and it’s a bore. It’s inconsistent, uneven, and vacant in their lyrics. And even if I was basing it off singles, are you telling me he’s some kind of lyrical genius? Have you read his lyrics?

    And what does talent and opinions about other artists have anything to do with each other? Speaking out about other artists doesn’t make you any more or less talented. Jesus.

    @Weaveney, oh yes it does fool. it means “riding other people’s coattails,” which makes them opinionated yet talentless idiots. And yes I’ve heard odd future’s album, and it’s unexciting,obnoxious, and repetitive. Was I supposed to be shock? They’re boring.

    [Reply]

    Weaveney Reply:

    @gordy, Look up the definition of “riding other people’s coat-tails” – & sit your ass down if you can’t even bother to Google a phrase, before you spit it out.
