MTV Inscribes "Black Eyed Peas" on Black Keys' VMA Award




The Black Keys took home an MTV Video Music Award in the "Breakthrough Video" category for "Tighten Up," off their recent critically acclaimed album Brothers.

Unfortunately, MTV inscribed their award with "The Black Eyed Peas."

Whoops. Probably just as well though, we don't want their heads to get too big anyway.

The guys wrote, "We are super proud of fergie!!!" on their Facebook page.
