The MTV Video Music Awards is just a month away, so it’s time to peruse the nominees list. Lady Gaga swept the boards with a record-breaking 13 nominations, two of which include Best Pop Video and Best Female Video. Not only does she now hold the record for most VMA nods in a single show, but she is also the first female artist to be nominated for two different videos in the Video of the Year category (“Bad Romance” and “Telephone”). Eminem’s hit single “Not Afraid” helped him received 8 nods. First-time nominees include Ke$ha, Drake, Justin Bieber, and Florence + The Machine. B.o.B’s “Airplanes”, Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness”, Janelle Monáe’s “Tightrope”, 30 Seconds To Mars’ “King & Queens”, and Dan Black’s “Symphonies” also made the cut. Check out the full breakdown of nominees organized by category after the break. The VMAs will air live from Los Angeles on Sunday, September 12 at 9PM on MTV. According to recent whispers Kanye West will be in the building to perform a song off his upcoming album, so you don’t want to miss a potential “Imma let you finish but…” moment!
