Dissecting The 2012 VMA Seating Chart

We got a tour of the Staples Center in Los Angeles today and with it, a look at who's sitting where on Thursday. Here's which pairings make sense and those that really don't.

Makes sense: Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones, Mac Miller and Childish Gambino

Andrew Gauthier

Not only are they starring in the same movie — Celeste and Jesse Forever — but they will present an award together at the VMA's this year. The Donald Glover/NBC comedy connection makes perfect sense for him to be sitting close to these two. Also, Mac Miller and Donald Glover appeared on Hip Hop Squares together.

Makes no sense: Dwight Howard and Skrillex

Andrew Gauthier

What could these two possibly have to talk about? Also, Emma Watson behind Skrillex? Oooohkay.

Makes sense: Rihanna and Katy Perry

Andrew Gauthier

They're BFF's, duh!

Makes no sense: Miley Cyrus next to A$AP Rocky

Andrew Gauthier

I guess because Miley has an "alternative" haircut?

Makes sense: Rebel Wilson next to Tyler The Creator

Andrew Gauthier

Something tells us the two will become fast friends.

Makes sense: Nash, Louise Roe, and Chord Overstreet

Andrew Gauthier

Three people I have never heard of before. (Okay, I think the last guy is from Glee?)

Makes no sense: Frank Ocean and Green Day

Andrew Gauthier

Green Day shout-scream their punk rock songs while Frank's crooning is smooth as hell.

Makes (almost) no sense: the "Awkward" and "Jersey Shore" casts

Andrew Gauthier

Sure, they're both MTV shows but they have nothing in common. Plus, one is cancelled and one is not.

Makes no sense: Lil Wayne and Taylor Swift

Andrew Gauthier

...But I would love to see her bring Connor Kennedy as her date.

Makes sense: Katy Perry and Drake, Demi Lovato and Ke$ha

Whitney Jefferson

They're all pals, right?

Makes no sense: Tyler The Creator seated in front of the Olympic USA gymnastics team

Andrew Gauthier

Makes Sense: Andy Samberg and Gotye

Andrew Gauthier
