Pop hunk Jesse Mccartney isn't even bothering to prepare a speech for Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards because he's convinced he'll come away a loser.
The US singer is nominated in the Best Pop Video category but he's sure he'll lose out to Gwen Stefani.
He says, "I think Gwen's gonna take it, man. I think she deserves it the most. She's just got so much; she's the it girl of 05."
But McCartney won't be upset if he doesn't win - he's heading into the eye of Hurricane Katrina just to see his favourite groups perform at the Miami Beach, Florida event on Sunday (28AUG05).
"I just hope I get down there, man. Have you heard about all this storm/hurricane business? What's going on?"
