Nickelback Win Big, Gaga Steals the Show at MuchMusic Awards

June 22, 2009 1:08 PM ET

Nickelback won big on their home turf at last night's MuchMusic Video Awards, taking home three prizes at the Canadian music network's annual ceremony. The Jonas Brothers hosted and pulled double duty as performers, taking the stage for "Burnin' Up" and "Paranoid." The Black Eyed Peas delivered a high energy "Boom Boom Pow" and Kelly Clarkson and Rise Against also rocked out onstage, but it was Lady Gaga that had tongues wagging with her "Love Game"/"Poker Face" medley that ended in the recent RS cover star sporting a Madonna-esque cone bra that burst into flames. Gaga also walked away with the International Artist of the Year trophy, while BEP were named International Group of the Year and Jonas Brothers picked up the fan-voted UR Fave International Video award for "Burnin' Up." The night ended on a controversial note as Perez Hilton, who appeared at the show, tweeted that he was assaulted by the Peas' Will.i.am and two security guards.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
