Billie Eilish, Rosalía Under Fire for Best Latin Win at the VMAs

Papermag 13 September, 2021 - 06:12pm

On Sunday, the duo took home the title for their song "Lo Vas A Olvidar" over the likes of Shakira, Maluma, Karol G, J Balvin, Tainy and Bad Bunny. And while a couple of the nominated songs also featured guest spots from English-speaking artists, Billie and Rosalía's win ended up reigniting the debate over who's considered a Latin artist and, for the most part, people weren't all too happy about the results.

After all, Rosalía won the very same award in 2019 for her J Balvin collaboration, "Con Altura," which already rankled a number of people given she's a white European woman. And for many, this year's win was even more problematic since Billie is also a white woman, meaning that two non-Latin American artists had somehow taken home the honor for Best Latin just because Rosalía sings in Spanish.

"Two white women won the Latin award," as journalist Sandra E. Garcia tweeted, while another added that their win felt "like an insult."

However, fans of Billie and Rosalía responded by defending the stars and blaming the VMAs for even nominating them, especially because of the aforementioned controversy surrounding the flamenco pop artist's last win in the same category.

"once again, this is the vma's fault for even nominating them in the first place there's no reason billie or rosalia should be dragged over [this]," one commenter argued, before a second stan wondered why people were "actually upset a billie and rosalia but not mtv."

don't blame billie or rosalia, blame the vmas... https://t.co/ZSpqMrHZao

That said, neither Billie nor Rosalía have addressed the backlash.

NME 13 September, 2021 - 09:31am

Billie Eilish welcomed Foo Fighters to the stage at last night’s (September 12) MTV Video Music Awards to receive their Global Icons award.

The pop star spoke at the event held at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in New York City. She introduced them with a short spiel about the indelible mark they’ve left on rock music.

“They put their heart into every single song, and leave it all on the stage every time,” Eilish said in her speech. ​”They’ve carried the torch of rock’n’roll for 26 years.

“They have 12 GRAMMYs, seven Platinum albums, two VMAs, and this year they’ll be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. They are heroes, they are legends, and now they’re officially Global Icons.”

The band performed a medley of their songs ‘Learn To Fly’, ‘Shame Shame’ and ‘Everlong’ on the night. See it below.

In related news, Machine Gun Kelly performed his latest single ‘Papercuts’ at the ceremony with a backing band in tow that included frequent collaborator Travis Barker.

The rapper-turned-pop-punk star began the performance above a giant burial plot as a nod to the song’s refrain: “Keep my mouth shut and wave / I’m dancing on my grave.”

Other performances on the night came from Doja Cat, who was also a host of the awards, and Kacey Musgraves, among others.
