Pink To Receive Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at VMAs

Despacito missed out on MTV VMAs nomination as it 'wasn't submitted for consideration'

There’ll be no VMAs for Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi this year

The award was later renamed to honor the late Michael Jackson, and since then were handed to artists such as Guns N' Roses, Beyonce and many others.

While she already has plenty of awards to her name (including multiple Grammys), the 37-year-old singer will be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs on August 27.

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's ubiquitous summer anthem "Despacito" unfortunately did not get nominated for any MTV Video Music Awards this year, reports the Associated Press. "She is also known for lighting up the stage with her unparalleled acrobats and evocative live shows, dazzling audiences with her memorable performances". She was also named "Woman of the Year" by Billboard in 2013.

Since her debut in 2000, P!nk has released six studio albums, 1 greatest hits album, sold over 42 million albums, over 75 million singles, over 2.4 million DVDs worldwide and has had 15 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (four at No.1). MTV says it's because the video was never submitted for nomination. She won for the first time in 2001, for her single "Lady Marmalade". While the industry fails to see the impact of the song and video, Fonsi said he feels like a victor already despite the snub.
