The Video Music Awards Are Ready To Crank Dat

The kids from High School Musical, the continually overrated Scarlett Johansson, and the guy who played McLovin’ have been added to the Video Music Awards’ lineup of presenters. In addition, “famous” knob-twiddler DJ AM and TMZ staple Travis Barker will do that thing where Barker plays a drum part along with a popular song; they’ll be accompanying the likes of the Ting Tings, T-Pain, and Katy Perry. I guess one year is the precise amount of time for something to develop from “somewhat amusing YouTube sensation” to “co-opted by the NFL” to “appropriate fodder for the Video Music Awards.” [antiMUSIC]
