VMAs coming Sunday, let’s chat about it

So, MTV has decided to air their annual celebrity spectacle/awards show. The Video Music Awards air Sunday night at 8 p.m. central.

Rainbow Rowell and myself will be watching it and hosting a live chat on Omaha.com and right here on my blog.

Please join us to talk about the show, the awards, the ridiculous crap going on and make fun of whatever it is that Lady Gaga is wearing. If anything, it should be entertaining.

Nominees and categories are after the jump.

See you then.
