TORONTO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Canadian Rapper Kardinal Offishall’s Everyday (Rudebwoy)” proved to be the big winner at last week’s 17th Annual MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, taking home three of the 17 awards.
The song, released by Toronto indie label Black Jays, won top video, director honors for Ray Robinson, and a VideoFACT award.
Thousands of fans surrounded the MuchMusic headquarters, while music industry insiders partied inside to performances by Nelly Furtado with Timbaland, Fall Out Boy, Rihanna, Hedley, Nick Lachey, Simple Plan, City and Colour, Metric and Yellowcard.
Other awards went to Fall Out Boy, who took home the top international group trophy, Kelly Clarkson, for top international artist, Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” for top international group video, and Rihanna’s “S.O.S. (Rescue Me)” for top international artist video.
The actual awards were overshadowed in the Canadian press, however, by the array of TV and music celebrities that made an appearance, including Paris Hilton, Tori Spelling, Elisha Cuthbert and Shawn Ashmore. A supposed catfight between Mary Jo Eustice and Spelling garnered the majority of the headlines the morning after the awards show. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
