Lady Gaga And Eminem Breaks VMA BankTue, Aug 03, 2010
Gaga, who garnered nominations for hits like "Bad Romance" and "Telephone," received noms for "Video of the Year," "Best Collaboration" and "Best Female Video," while rapper Eminem is running for "Best Male Video" and "Video of the Year" amongst others, for his song "Not Afraid."
“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,” Gaga says in a statement. “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!”
Eminem Adds: “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?!?!,” Eminem joked in the statement regarding his co-headlining concerts with Jay-Z. “I mean, I’ll be there but don’t expect me to be nice about it.”
The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, September 12, at 9 p.m.
