This awards show was as American as Apple Psy …

The American Music Awards wasn’t created with the goal of showcasing American artists. Canadian Justin Bieber won Artist of the Year, accidental Korean pop megastar Psy closed the show. Rather, this program should be known as the Spite Awards, or the Petties, a show created in 1973 by Dick Clark for ABC when the Grammys contract expired and CBS came calling. Forty years of fan-voting spite. And is anything more American than that?

Yes. The answer is yes. You can take a Korean man and dress him up in MC Hammer Pants, then mash up his viral hit “Gangnam Style” with “Too Legit to Quit” and see what happens. That is definitely all-American.

Speaking of legwear, has Bieber trademarked Skinny MC Hammer Pants?
