MTV has announced the nominees for the 2010 Video Music Awards and Lady Gaga leads the pack with 13 nominations, the most ever received by an artist in a single year in the history of the show. Record breaking! An additional 5 nominations for her collaboration on Beyonce’s ‘Video Phone’ has the unstoppable popper nommed two and even three times in several categories!
I bet some of you reading this are absolutely bewildered by this news, eh?
Well, sadly for those who don’t like her, she’s the closest thing we’ve got to an all conquering popstar so it is advised that you go and make some ‘she’s got a dick’ comments on some irony based forum you post on or something.
Anyway, for those giddily clapping with excitement (along with the sneaking feeling, one you refuse to completely acknowledge, that Alejandro was a bit crap and she seemed to lose her momentum) GaGa is rather thrilled also.
“I’m so honoured for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history. Ironically, I’m even more proud it’s an unlucky number – 13.”
“A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for three reasons – To make loud music, gay videos and cause a damn raucous. Thank you, MTV!”
In addition to her own nods, GaGa is also named in five of Beyoncé’s nominations for their ‘Video Phone (Extended Remix)’ collaboration – making a total of 18 mentions in the shortlist.
The 27th annual Video Music Awards show will broadcast live from the Nokia Theater In Los Angeles on Sunday, September 12 at 9:00PM ET.
