Foo Fighters star: 'The MTV VMAs don't mean s**t'

Drummer Taylor Hawkins, of Foo Fighters fame, has slammed the MTV VMAs for making rock bands accept their awards off-camera.

During the ceremony, which took place over the weekend, 30 Seconds To Mars were given a prize after winning the Best Rock Video category although they were forced to give their acceptance speech away from the live broadcast.

Hawkins has now hit out at this and explained that while it's great to be given an award by a huge institution like MTV, it doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme of a rock musician's career: "I don't care, man. Who cares? I mean, those awards are nice, but they don't f**king mean s**t. I make a living playing rock'n'roll. I'm not going to complain about anything."

30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto, however, seemed unfazed by the incident and tweeted a message to his fans to thank them for their support: "ECHELON YOU DID IT! YOU WON BEST ROCK VIDEO AND PROVED ONCE AGAIN THAT PASSION + COMMITMENT + FAITH MAKE DREAMS COME ALIVE. #MARSwinsVMA!!!"
