VMAs Move to Avoid Obama’s Speech Slot

Because Obama versus the VMAs isn't a world anyone wants to live in, MTV is bumping up this Thursday's award show by an hour to avoid conflict. You'll now be able to catch Frank Ocean and the VMAs from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., then watch Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Don't forget to check out Nicki Minaj's Twitter account, where the newly announced Romney supporter will surely deliver a detailed rebuttal to the president's address.
