Yesterday, MTV announced the nominees for the 2010 Video Music Awards. And good thing Lady Gaga didn’t let anyone steal her creativity out of her vagina, because her over-the-top videos this year brought her a record 13 nominations. (Seriously, the people who’ve come closest are Missy Elliot in 2001 for “Get Ur Freak On” and “Lady Marmalade.” And Beyoncé with nine nominations last year.) Gaga is even competing against herself for Video of the Year—”Bad Romance” and “Telephone” are both nominated. After seeing the news, Gaga tweeted, “13 VMA noms lilmonsters. Breakin records+breakin rüles. I love you, you Bad Kids are a part of me. PAWS UP!” We’re assuming the umlaut is a Luc Carl reference. [MTV]
Meanwhile, Eminem was the guy with the most nominations. He got eight. But he wasn’t as happy about it. He tweeted, “Apparently MTV doesn’t care that I have two massive stadium shows on the other side of the country the day after the VMAs. F me, right?!?! I mean, I’ll be there but don’t expect me to be nice about it.” [People]
Oh, right, because the world is supposed to rotate the other direction for you? Stop whining. This is far better than being the guy who gets Bruno’s butt in his face.
Will you be watching on September 12th? [MTV]
