LOS ANGELES, California ( The Adobo Chronicles) – He did it twice. First at the MTV Music Awards, then at the Grammys Rapper Kanye West took to the stage, unscripted, to grab the limelight from Taylor Swift and Beck, respectively.

The rest is history. West has been banned from attending all televised awards shows  including the Grammys, MTV Music Awards, and even the Oscars, and has been out of a job since.

The Adobo Chronicles caught up with the husband of reality show star Kim Kardashian at the latter’s home, baking some cookies for the night’s dessert.

“This is my new role, a stay-at-home husband since I have not had any performance or recording contracts for months now,” West said. The rap artist was remorseful and apologetic for his shenaningans at the awards shows and says he hates the idea of Kim being the sole breadwinner in their household.

Hollywood, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – The 31st MTV Video Music Awards will be handed out this Sunday, August 24, in a televised ceremony at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

Award categories include: Video of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Lyric Video and Best Hip-Hop, among others.

This year, MTV is adding a new special category: Best Ice Bucket Challenge Video.  The decision to add the new category was prompted by the phenomenal success of the social media campaign benefiting the ALS Association.  Videos of people dousing themselves with a bucket of ice have become the runaway sensation of the summer.

During the live telecast, viewers will be asked to upload their favorite Ice Bucket Challenge videos on YouTube in real time.  Each upload will be shown in split screen during the entire ceremony.  During the last 15 minutes of the telecast, television viewers will vote on their favorite challenge video.  The video with the most number of votes will receive the special MTV trophy sculpted with ice.

Rapper Vanilla Ice will do the honors of announcing the winner.

UPDATING: The Adobo Chronicles has just learned that Patrick Stewart of Star Trek: Next Generation fame, is one of the leading nominees for this new award.  Here’s the nominated video:
