It's not the Oscars, not the Emmys nor the Grammys, not even the Tonys... Alma? Soul? Kids Choice? Teen Choice? People's Choice Awards? Nope, it's The World Music Awards and while some may be confused and think it's about world music, it's actually about music supposedly from all over the world. In the end it's just another popularity event. The awards are given to artist who have sold more albums, based on worldwide sales figures provided by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. The organizers even go as far as to insist that we buy more albums so that our favorite artists can win awards. Sure, I'm buying an artist's CD only because I want them to win an award. At least the show gives proceeds to some good causes.
Just like the past two years, The World Music Awards were held at the Sporting Club in Monte Carlo, Monaco and it was hosted by the recently unemployed Hayden Pannettiere, other second and third rate celebrities like Michelle Rodriguez, Asia Argento and the Hilton Sisters where there to pat each other in the back and trying to look pretty for the photographers. Jennifer Lopez was also there to shake her rump on stage while singing some new song or something.
In order of appearance the ladies in those picture are: Hayden Panettiere, Michelle Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez, Asia Argento, Clara Morgane, Paris & Nicky Hilton, Victoria Silvstedt and Rachel Hunter.
