I have always assumed that when an established artist doesn’t attend an award ceremony; with the exception to The Grammy’s; it’s because the artist has a conflicting schedule.
Seems my assumption was proved wrong during the night of the VMA’s.
I assumed that Keyshia Cole’s VMA absence was due to a conflicting schedule. Turns out it was because she was uninvited.
Keyshia explained the reasons for being uninvited on twitter by saying:
“MTV told me I’m not an MTV artist”

I feel bad for you Keyshia. Don’t listen to them!
