VMAs Leave New York City

MTV announced Wednesday that both its Movie Awards and Video Music Awards will be held in the Los Angeles area this year. While the Movie Awards have taken place in L.A. for the past three years, Radio City Music Hall in New York was home to the VMAs this past fall.

“Making Los Angeles this year’s location for both shows gives us the perfect hotbed to create the eclectic mix of artists, stars and commotion which embody MTV events,” MTV General Manager Stephen Friedman said.

Honestly, we’re surprised they didn’t just go with the Jersey Shore.
