It's Justin Timberlake vs. Robin Thicke vs. Miley Cyrus
Best Video With A Social Message
Kelly Clarkson, "People Like Us"
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, "Same Love"
Snoop Lion, "No Guns Allowed"
Miguel, "Candles in the Sun"
Beyoncé, "I Was Here"
Neither “People Like Us” or “I Was Here” are social message so much as personal manifestos. but maybe an uplifting message is enough to count in MTV’s book. It’s a moot point because Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s “Same Love” is a lock in this category, as it should be. Nothing else here comes close.
