Lady Gaga nominated for a record 13 MTV VMAs

August 3

Lady Gaga scored a record-breaking 13 nominations Tuesday for MTV’s Video Music Awards, including one for Video of the Year. In that category, she is the first artist to be nominated twice, for “Bad Romance” and for her collaboration with Beyonce on “Telephone.”

“I’m so honored, 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,” Lady Gaga told MTV about her nominations. “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 ruckus. Thank you, MTV!”

Eminem, who earned eight nominations, is also up for the coveted Video of the Year, and for Best Male Video and Best Hip-Hop Video.

After learning of his nominations, he joked, “Apparently, MTV doesn’t care that I have two massive stadium shows on the other side of the country the day after the VMAs. … I mean, I’ll be there, but don’t expect me to be nice about it.”

The VMAs will be broadcast live at 9 p.m. on Sept. 12 from Los Angeles.
