Unfortunately for Brooklyn, MTV Brings VMAs to Barclays Center

On Sunday, August 25, MTV will be broadcasting its Video Music Awards from the Barclays Center, so if you live anywhere near the arena, you might want to just leave town that weekend.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s happening. In fact, here’s a couple terrible statements from Michael Bloomberg and Marty Markowitz to prove it. We honestly cannot decide which is more annoying, but the early edge goes to Markowitz.

Bloomberg:

Brooklyn is home to icons like the Cyclone in Coney Island and the Brooklyn Bridge, and now it can lay claim to the MTV Video Music Awards.

Likening the status of the Brooklyn Bridge to the VMAs has got to be illegal somehow.

Markowitz:

Bravo to MTV on a decision that hits all the right notes and strikes all the right chords. I’m so thrilled that I’ll probably get ‘no sleep till Brooklyn’ hosts the VMAs!

Oh Marty.
