While the news of M.I.A., Tyler, the CreatorEarl SweatshirtArcade Fire, Eminem and Lady Gaga hitting the stage this year’s YouTube Music Awards gathered all the headlines, acclaimed producer, Flying Lotus, decided to share his thoughts on the award show’s choice of nominees. Taking to Twitter to voice his opinion, FlyLo went on to say that he felt the YTMAs were pointless and practically a mirroring image of MTV’s VMAs, and that they didn’t capitalize the opportunity to highlight deserving and innovative artists.

The YouTube Music Awards currently have nominations for artists such as Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Katy Perry, PSY, One Direction and Selena Gomez, so it definitely looks like Flying Lotus has brought up a valid point.
