    I hope they win, but seeing as Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber are on there, all the teenyboppers are going to go batshit insane over voting.

    Several things wrong with this statement.

    1) It's Nick Jonas, not the Jonas Brothers.
    2) He actually has done quite a bit of charity work in the way of being an ambassador for diabetes, being diagnosed with Type I at the age of 13. He even testified in front of the Senate to promote the idea of increased research funding.
    3) You're talking about VH1 here. A show that was renown for having flashback shows about old fads. And you're asking if a fad is dead.

    Cave Johnson, we're done here.

    It's kinda insulting to see Linkin Park in the same sentance as these other artists. Of course, its going to be based on how much they have contributed to charity, but fans will be biased towards their favourite artists.

    Oh God, it's so insulting that LP are being recognized along with other artists who inspire social change, like LGBT acceptance and diabetes research. It totally hurts their image.

    Best use of that quote ever.

    You know what, thank you for saying that. It bothers me when people judge someone on their demographic rather than their actual accomplishments. All of those people have done wonderful things, regardless of who releases your favorite music.

    I only wonder about Bieber... does he deserve to be in this category? Did he do all with heart or under a label's order for his -already over constructed- image? What can a boy of 16 years really understand about the world to help it, specially a boy who until 1 year ago cared only about shaking constantly his hair and crash on doors while doing that.
    What I am saying is proved by old LP fans who are still too young to understand ATS's lyrical importance compared to their old stuff. If they can't understand that, it means is related to age (beside a minor procent of immatures obviously), and people voting for Bieber are only crazy girlies who doesn't understand what Bieber did but just thinks "Ohh my little Bieber is on the main stage again!".

    All in all, I'm not saying he doesn't deserve this prize, just I think only who makes it with heart and with own will and understanding (with wisdom, justice and love) should do it and be nominated therefore.

    Just as long as Lady Gaga doesn't win, I'm about ready to kill myself with all her 'We did it, Little Monsters!' posts on Facebook.

    And who are you to say he DOESN'T deserve it? Just because YOU didn't understand the world at 16 doesn't mean Justin Bieber is as ignorant as you were. I know at 16 I was doing my part to make the world a better place. And really? Do you honestly think that a year ago the only thing Bieber cared about was shaking his hair and crashing on doors?

    And then wait, at the beginning of your post you're asking if he deserves to be in this category, then at the end of your post you say, "I'm not saying he doesn't deserve the prize..."

    Um, no. You're being a hypocrite. You made that post for the express purpose of saying that Justin Bieber doesn't deserve the prize. And why? Because YOU think he was ordered by his label to give their hard-earned money away, that he doesn't care about the world, and that because LP's fans are immature, that Bieber's fans are more immature. The latter argument doesn't matter. The fans of an artist does not indicate whether the artist him/her/themselves are good people. And the ignorance of saying that the only little girls voted for him? Pathetic. What about oh, the people that work at the children's hospital he raised money for? Or the schools he helped build with Pencils For Promise?

    And you think LP are the only artists on that page that did this with heart?

    I'm sorry, but you LP fans sometimes make me fucking sick. Stop bashing on these artists. Just because you don't fucking like their music or who they are doesn't mean the impact they've had on society is even less. Fuck off.

    Completely agree, just because you think some artists' music sucks doesn't mean that they haven't used their hard earned money to make the world a better place.

    I'm sure the award will go to the artist who deserves it most. It might be LP, it might not. Best of luck to them.

    Side Note: Not all of JB's fans are little girls. He might have a serious fanbase. Not that I've ever cared to do some research about it. Grow up man.
