    Gaga: you are the QUEEN! Luv ya! Yeah!!

  • Sasha

    Regarding the rock bands…
    They are rock???Of all them only 30 seconds to mars is rock…

  • iris

    Who the hell made that list?! Is music really this shallow these days..

  • Adam

    F/U/C/K EVIL MTV

  • VICTORIA

    Congradulations GAGA !!!!!!!!! 13 the most ever VMA’S for a single artist. More than Madonna, more the Britney Spears, more than Christina Aguilera, More than Beyonce, more than Micheal Jackson, more than whoever else I left out. All of this on the day Gaga releases THE REMIX ALBUM which is getting great reviews. Gaga you are fantastic but even more GATASTIC!!!!!!!!

  • Dominic

    Can anyone say, Overkill? PS, that list of rock videos is just pathetic.

  • kia

    How is Videophone nominated so much and Telephone only nominated once? WTF

  • AlanMichael

    Beyonce and Gaga should open with Telephone/Video Phone….just saying.

    twitter.com/ItsAlanMichael

  • Glow

    Good for GAGA. She is teh raining princess of pop. She is teh biggest popstar on teh planent . Kesha and Katy deserve their award too. I think GAGA, Em or Kanye should open teh show. GAGA is the queen of ratings .

  • GAGA = Princess of POP

    Badromance and Telephone were teh best video of the year. She will sweep the VMA.

  • sam

    eminem nedeed close to 0 exposure to become number1 that shows you his fans are really about his music, i like gaga but she was everywer to the point i got tired of he and her crazy fans who act she is jesus or something

  • VICTORIA

    @Glow: Glow, I think GAGA should have two performances, one with Beyonce and one by herself. Gaga is going to bring it to the VMA’S in full force. I feel sorry for the other poptarts performing that night. Gaga has so much energy and creativity in her performances. The other poptarts are WEAK.

  • MTV SUCK

    MTVFAIL AND VMASUCKS !!
    THIS LIST NOT FAIR !!

  • Jojo

    30 seconds to mars deserves to win both of those nominations !!

  • Lilly

    There is no variation what so ever. Why not call this stupid show the VMGAGA’s or somthing. The EMA’s will deninetly be better.

  • sunshine

    Look at the Rihanna stans mad at MTV..lol

  • Ana

    Wating for EMA!!! Europe Awards are 1000% better than VMA.
    And awards goes to real artist e.g Linkin Park, U2, Metallica, 30STM, Tokio Hotel, Eminem, Jay-Z, Placebo, Muse

    I’m just sick see gaga face everywhere…

  • Sadie

    Eminem definitely deserves to win and Im sure he will.. His new album is amaazing.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    beyonce and gaga will probably rack up (again). their videos are so much better than the comp. JAY-Z and alicia better win something for “empire state of mind”. definitely best collab!

  • Tina

    Taylor Swift again please???Christina needs to get back in the studio..Her career is on life support no Magazine Covers and now no VMA nomination this is not what we waited 5 years for..She has a great Cd but fans got burn buying BTB a Double Cd with 1 good single…And I’m just sick of Beyonce.

  • Poppy

    So this sucks. I can pretty much predict which crappy-ass artist is gonna win. Sh*t I know its not the grammys but this is pretty much
    last years nominations only thing is there’s some crappy Katy Perry thrown in there I’m a teenager and I barerly like any of these people..

    Glad The Black Kes got a nomination though they’re a great band.

  • lll

    Surprised Rihanna only got one nom!

  • Sadie

    Taylor Swift is so overrated.

  • seila

    Muse deserves more nominations! Congrats to 30stm, love jared leto♥

  • Mel

    Glad 30stm are nominated but I think gaga is gonna go home with EVERYTHING!
    waiting for the EMA!

  • Fajir Al-Attar

    Eminem definetly should win for ALL the catogories he was nominated in! He is the BEST!

  • Annaah

    Marshal Mathers for president!

  • Marcus

    I see the little Eminem stans are out, thinking he is the next coming of jesus.

    Eminem should not be on any of the lists except the best concept rap video, other than that, he had no songs playing on the radio. He had no exposure and his album was pretty bad, he needs to stop singing on his album because the kid cant hold a note.

    This whole list is the decline of the music industry and its gimmicky artists who really don’t contribute to it other than visually and physically, lame awards for a lot of lame artists. For eminem to be on the lists is comedic, the dude had no records spinning on top radio stations. Lady gaga seems to have taken over the industry, come on now.

    Garbage list for little 15 yearolds.

  • Simon

    The 30STM stans are pathetic. That band and their frontman SUCK!

  • toni

    Personally I wouldn’t take this award show seriously since when was the last time besides 5 am did MTV actually play videos. Some of the nominees make no sense. How is Video phone art direction? Why in the best rock video are there barely any actual rock videos? Do MTV kiss Gaga, Beyonce, and Taylor Swifts ass? I’m not trying to be mean, but why is telephone and video phone nominated in the same category for almost every nomination? I can understand telephone, but video phone video makes no sense. I hope B.O.B., Jay-z and Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae and Eminem sweep. I truthfully would be happy for Gaga, but some of her over the top fans ruin the love I had for her.

  • toni

    @Poppy: The grammys aren’t better either. The grammys haven’t been the same since they started awarding artist on sales instead of talent. Last year grammys is a prime example. Music has definitely went downhill and I’m afraid it probably won’t come back for a while with majority shitty list of nominees besides Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, B.o.B, The Black Keys, and the so called rock category.

  • Digit

    LMAO!!! And no sign of Floptina…… Of course.
    Hahahahahaha!!!

  • bob

    too much for GAGA
    maybe the show will become the concert of Eminem and GAGA

  • rock n roll queen

    lady gaga deserves everyone of these nominations is she doesnt then no pop artist nowadays doesnt either

  • Sadie

    @Marcus:

    LOL. His songs aren’t playing on the radio? what planet are you living on?
    His album was bad? and he can’t sing? DUDE HE IS A RAPPER, and I advice you to listen to his album before judging – peace

  • Negro

    Iam definitely NOT watching the VMA’s this year! These nominations are truly pathetic!

  • SARA

    @Sasha:
    WFT “30 seconds to mars” are emo….

  • Jake

    @Negro: @Negro: Do you think anyone is impressed that you claim you won’t watch the show do to the pathetic nominations?!
    LMAO!!
    I call BS! Not only will you watch it but you will be back b!tching about it the next day! Hahaha!!

  • forgetme[Not]

    I felt Best Female Video was poorly nominated. My nominations would’ve included RIHANNA for “Rude Boy” and FLORENCE + THE MACHINE for “Dog Days Are Over”. Breakthrough Video deserved more nods rather than just four, which is poor since last year it had 8 nods.

    Overall, I think the nominees are reasonable this year and I was glad 30 Seconds to Mars got their nominations.

    And the VMAs are better, I was totally bored and disappointed with the EMAs last year. The nominees and performances were at best, tragic.

  • Poppy

    @toni:

    I agree. I Hope my comment didn’t make the grammys seem like it golden or some sh*t because it hasnt been in a REALLY long time. Watching the grammys last year was soo depressing with Taylor Swift winning half of the f*ckin awards. Seriously? Is it soo hard to give awards to people who actually work there asses off for years? Instead, they give them to any poptart that kids my age ‘love’. The rock catergory is f*ckin sad. All I know is Jay-Z, B.o.b. ,Hayley, Eminem, Black Keys and at least Coldplay win something.

  • mpd

    13 nominationa WAY!!!!!!! TOO MUCH FOR GAGA. GOOD ARTIST, BUT REALLY? GIVE OTHER ARTIST NOMINATIONS,…CHRISTINA AGIUILERA, SADE, BLACKEYE PEAS….SOMEONE? THIS IS GOING NOT GOING TOO BE THE VMA”S BUT THE GAGA SHOW. iF I WANTED TOO WATCH GAGA FOR 2 HOURS I WOULD GO TOO HER CONCERT. REALLY BAD NOMINATIONS MTV. ILL PROBABLY TUNE IN FOR THE PERFORMANCES THOU.

  • mpd

    @Tina: DONT COUNT HER OT JUST YET…JUST SAW THE TRAILER FOR BURELESQUE…LOOKS GREAT AND THE MUSIC SOUNDS GOOD TOO. AND AS FOR HER ALBUM…THE BEST POP ALBUM THIS YEAR. JUST CAUSE IT DIDNT PERFORM WELL DOESNT MEAN ATHING. KESHA SOLD ALOT OF ALBUMS I SHES TRASH. U KNOW WHEN THINGS ARE SAD WHEN KESHA WHO HAS NO TALENT IS SELLING MORE ALBUMS THEN CHRISTINA WHO IS A TRU TALENT. IT JUST SHOW HOW BAD MUSIC IS RIGHT NOW.

  • U

    Haha GaGay is trying too hard to get nominated ….. Overated.. and a copy cat

  • jackiekaulitz

    WTF!!!!!! Where’s best new artist 2008 winner: TOKIO HOTEL?????? WE WANT TOKIO HOTEL! WE WANT TOKIO HOTEL! WE WANT TOKIO HOTEL!

  • CC

    Apparently, lots of people don’t like Taylor Swift (yes, this is shocking, not just because i LOVE her, but also because she’s the one with sold-out concerts, adoring fans and a SICK amount of awards) but it’s sad to spot…umm, ZERO nominations for Ms. Swift this year. Hope this will encourage her to get back in the studio and release more songs. I know I’ll love them, along with millions of others, regardless of the haters.

  • http://twitter.com_8 tokiocrazedgirl!

    where are the tokio hotel nominations????? they are a real rock group

  • vartanfan87

    I’m gonna pull a kanye and say that Mumford & Sons had the best album of the year because this is true.
