Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber were the big winners at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards last night in Northern Ireland. Gaga won four awards including best female artist, biggest fans, and best video and best song for her hit "Born This Way." The singer also performed her new single "Marry the Night" and scandalized the audience by mooning the crowd at the end of the song, remarking that guest host David Hasselhoff has a "big penis" and joking that she has "had a lot of Botox" while accepting the award for best female.

Song Stories

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
