Most people would be delighted to get an invite to a glitzy awardy thing and not have to do anything more than flounce down a red carpet and pick up a couple of gongs. But not Gwen Steffani, oh no. She's miffed that the MTV awards don't want her to do anything from her solo album, and so she's refusing to go. The refusal seems to be a bit of a bargaining position rather than a definite, non-negotiable postion - MTV really need her there, as she's got a lot of nominations; but they've also got a pretty packed line-up of middling talents already (Mariah Carey, Coldplay, Ludacris, Kelly So Help Us God Clarkson) and so it'd be hard to slot her in. Unless she gets to duet with Ludacris.

She probably won't mind; it;s all about getting her awful clothes line screen time, isn't it?
