It even inspired thousands of people around the world to dance around the street and make their own versions.How did he go home empty-handed this year? He was nominated for “Video of the Year” and “Best Male Video”.
Miley Cyrus Gave Up Her Stage Time – Last year after Miley Cyrus twerked her way to infamy, many claimed Miley was desperate for attention.
