SM boycotts MAMA

MAMA

cluding Super JuniorSNSDSHINee and f(x) will not be attending MAMA. The reason given was that MAMA will be using a process similar to how MNET’s music program M! Countdown selects its winners, and SME does not trust the method nor believe that it is fair.

This latest statement comes as SME does not trust in M! Countdown because of what happened with SNSD’s massive hit Gee. While the song topped charts of other television networks for 9 weeks in a row, it failed to reach number one in M! Countdown even once. It only made the top 10, one whole month after the song’s release date.

SME thus feel that MNET’s method of deciding on their winners cannot be trusted.

Also, there is a MAMA-related popularity poll happening on Mnet’s website at the moment. The catch is that you must be registered as a paid member of the website in order to cast a vote. SME feels that fans of SME’s artistes should not be spending too much money just to cast votes for their favourite artistes and has hence asked MNET to withdraw SME’s artistes from the categories for which they are nominated in MAMA.
