Mastodon Injury at VMAs
The band's camp is keeping a tight lip about what actually went down. MTV spoke with their manger Nick John who wouldn't provide many details about how Hinds was injured but did tell them that he also suffered a broken nose and two black eyes during the mysterious incident that took place around 3 a.m. Monday morning after the band performed with the Josh Homme at the VMAs.
We can probably discount rumors that Britney sat on him. Other rumors have him being attacked by unknown assailants. The band's manager feels confident that Hinds in on the mend. "Thankfully, it seems he's going to [make a full recovery],” John told MTV. “All I know is he had a bad head injury, broken nose and blacked-out eyes. He doesn’t recall much.”
