Because when I think “country music,” I think SHAKIRA. Okay, okay: She’s got a duet with Blake Shelton out right now, so I’ll allow it. I’ll also allow it because as much as I am someone who (as you know) complains about ALMOST LITERALLY EVERYTHING, that is not the kind of thing that irks me. Go to whatever awards show you want! I wish there would be MORE cross-awards show pollination, and the more rando the better. Send The Band Perry to the Emmys! Make Bryan Cranston attend the MTV Music Awards! Force Katy Perry to go to the Tonys and just sit there silently and listen to other people sing! Everyone should go everywhere and ideally wearing something HIDEOUS.  THIS COUNTS!
