Ricky Martin won, apparently hands down, the “Best Booty Shake” honor at Dec. 3’s “My VH1 Music Awards,” but don’t look for the segment on future broadcasts of the show or any mention of it on the VH1 Web site. The New York Post reports that Greg Norman, a prankster who wore a prosthetic buttocks on his head when he accepted the award on behalf of Ricky during the live telecast of the ceremony, is saying that Ricky’s handlers complained about the cheeky skit after it first aired. Since then, the scissors have been taken to it. But a VH1 representative who reputedly got to the, er, bottom of the situation claimed to the Post: “The show was too long. We had to tighten it up.”
