The Veronicas ARIA Awards slammed Sophie Monk Plastic surgery denials
The Veronicas’ has hit out at the ARIA Awards for snubbing their “LGBT visibility” video for On Your Side, directed by her girlfriend
The graphic mini-movie, which has been viewed more than 20 million times, shows the intimacy between the two women while also tackling addiction and domestic violence issues.
Origliasso accused ARIA of “ego and politics” for not including the video among the 10 nominated clips contesting the publicly voted best video award.
The Veronicas singer also suggested ARIA would be hypocritical to incorporate any equality themes into this year’s awards on November 28 after snubbing On Your Side.
“Can’t wait for the equality theme they push this year, while snubbing the mostwatched LGBT video of the year, because egos+politics,” she wrote.
ARIA released a statement explaining it didn’t choose the final 10.
“The nominees for the best video award are not selected by ARIA but by the ARIA Voting Academy which is comprised of over 670 members of the music industry, former ARIA winners and nominees, labels, managers, publishers, media and retail,” a spokesperson said, adding that ARIA had always been a strong supporter of the Veronicas’ success.
