Yesterday, before the 2011 MTV VMA nominees were announced, we felt we had a pret-ty good idea of who might be included in the list.

Now, the nominees have been announced, and it seems to be all about Katy Perry and Adele this year!

Katy leads the pack with nine nominations, while Adele is NOT far behind with seven noms, including top video of the year.

Congrats to Foster the People for landing two well deserved noms AND to Mumford & Sons for getting a BEST ROCK VIDEO nomination for The Cave!

    Ke$ha makes the best videos. Too bad she's not nominated - it's all about Rhianna the slutfest.



  2. 2

    Hahahahaha Katy creamed Gaga in noms. Why no mention of that? Wed Jul 20, 11:10 pm ET
    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Pop singer Katy won a leading nine nominations for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards on Wednesday, reducing eccentric superstar Lady Gaga to also-ran status with just three nods.



  3. 3

    I want KATY KATY KATY!!!!!!! to knock the shit outta that unfuckable grotesque Adele!!!!!!!! My vote for video of the year is def. Born This Way!!!!! or JUDAS!!! AMAZING!!!!! LMFAO



  4. 4

    Doesn't MTV know that if you don't nominate Brit, you don't get ratings?! LMAO!!

  5. 3l$@ says – reply to this


    5

    not happy with the nominations



  6. 6

    #VMANominationFail



  7. 7

    how is Born this Way not nominated for Best Cinematography? this is bullshit.



  8. 8

    Re: crazygravy – Doesn't really mean she is better. Music industry can't handle Gaga.



  9. 9

    something wrong with these nominations!!!!! why the fuck the videos from ALBUM OF THE DECADE aren't nominated for video of the year????

    Poor Tranny "Loser" Caca!!!!!!!



  10. 10

    Hahaha, more proof that GAGa is going to be over. Hilarious she only has 3 nominations, hope her ego goes down because she is not the shit at all. Anyway, Katy Perry actually sucks(better than GAGa though music wise) but it's better if she gets an award or awards than Lady Gaga. I hope Nicki Minaj all the awards she's nominated for because she's talented or Lupe Fiasco because he's talented as well or Bruno Mars, though he should have been nominated more than Best pop video.

  11. zania says – reply to this


    11

    How did Bruno Mars get nominated over Chris Brown, for Yeah 3x, very disappointed in MTV.



  12. 12

    remember when these awards were worth watching they are not based on talent anymore they are nothing more than popularity contests as seen as the Twilight sponsored MTV movie awards. pink should be on this list but no she always gets overlooked and why isn't there more britney noms she keep putting single after single this year don't get it but katy is better than kesha



  13. 13

    I cannot see "Album of The Decade " that would change everything leads MTV nominations!! Though I am not happy Britney and Rihanna did not get lots of nominations, I'm glad that Caca aka Man in Disguise got few nominations!! LMAO



  14. 14

    Re: crazygravy – She might be leading the nominations, but look at who's she's up against? I feel bad for her because she never wins anything like in the 2011 Grammys, I doubt she'll take half of what she's nominated for…maybe one or two at best.



  15. 15

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – you should vote EDGE OF GLORY for video of the year!!!!!!!!! LMAO



  16. 16

    so the person that has the album of the decade only has three nominations….whoa what an icon she is….



  17. 17

    wtf happened to britney spears?!?! hold it against me and i wanna go should of been in there! adele is boring and katy perry is boring but more understandable. nicki minaj better win everything she is nominated for…she has worked her butt off



  18. 18

    Re: noe_rie – LOLZ!! I KNOW!! Def. Edge of Glory for Video of the year!!!!! OMG!! Total shitfest!



  19. 19

    Re: loveHateGaga – lol!!



  20. 20

    Awww, nothing for Gag-Gag except Art and Choreograhpy. Bet you're crying in your soup. Loving it!!



  21. 21

    Where's Rebecca Black?? Friday and My Moment should be nominated!! LMAO!!



  22. 22

    where is 'tellall"??? I cant WAIT to hear the whining about lady gaga being this years biggest FLOP at the VMA's!!! HA HA HA HA HA!!!! born this way cd has truly just been so EPIC! LOL LOL!!!!!



  23. 23

    Where are madonna is shit, Glamour is the life and Tellall?? Come out!!lolz



  24. 24

    Tyler the creators Yonkers video… is extreme.. but a lot of people wont see the meaning in his message they’ll just see the weirdness and stuff. The coach roach I believe is meant to represent mainstream rap and he tries it (the words go with this part) and he didn’t like it so he went back- so he ate the coach roach and spit it out- kinda clever (and gross) if you ask me. And Kreayshawn- while I like her song and think it’s catchy- I don’t think she should have been nominated. I like Big Sean, his album is good and sounds different then a lot of other rap now. Wiz Khalifa kind of got annoying to me & Idk who FTP is… Tyler the Creator is alright too I guess- but hes into that 666 ish.. And Judas& TTWE for best choreography? You have got to be kidding me LMAO. This list kind of sucks.. its July.. So its supposed to be for the year- so I am assuming July 10-July 11- but this list only seems to have more recent stuff… either that or my year is just going by too damn fast! LOL 



  25. 25

    Re: Gaga_Is_Shit – i miss their comments!!!!oxceranoid and sanfran1 too!!!LMAO



  26. 26

    There will be a day when some of you haters will be fans of Gaga, don't know, but there will be a day….



  27. 27

    Intelligent readers all know that the only question that remains is - what type of expired meat dress will she wear at this year's VMA's. Perhaps a bustier of rancid baloney with a best before date of 2010.



  28. 28

    Re: edmonton – Where did that comment come from? Your ass? Reading is not your strong suit, is it?
    ps : It's (spelled) Rihanna, you idiot.



  29. 29

    " Album of The Decade" is flopping. so sad coz she puts so much efforts into that..lolz.It's only her second album though!!lol!!
    Maybe she'll wear 99 cents dress to the VMA!!lolZ!!



  30. 30

    Re: Success Probability 0% – Keep your finger crossed, dear!! lolz!!



  31. 31

    MTV admires Lady Gaga. Because she is the Queen of Pop. Gaga has taken over music. She fucking ROCKS!!! :) :) :) :) :) :)



  32. 32

    judiciaryreport.com/madonna-copyright-infringement.htm



  33. 33

    Madonna is a HASBEEN! HAHAHAHAHA! Madonna fans are scared shitless of Lady Gaga. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! FUCKING FUNNY!!!!!!! Lady Gaga has dethroned that no singing talent CEO cock sucking WHORE. Lady Gaga is The Queen of Pop.



  34. 34

    Madonna can't sing. Madonna can't act. Madonna can't dance.



  35. 35

    Lady Gaga has an amazing voice. She is really talented. Gaga actually can sing. I love Gaga songs. They are incredible.



  36. 36

    Madonna has spent her entire "career" (puke) stealing from others. Lady Gaga is an original. She comes up with her own music. :)



  37. 37

    Cher knows good music when she hears it. Cher wants to work with the Queen of Pop. Cher wants to record with Gaga.



  38. 38

    Bette Midler thinks Lady Gaga is AMAZING. Bette and Gaga.



  39. 39

    So basically Adele or Katy Perry or poss Bruno Mars



  40. 40

    Re: tellall – Tellall, Keep lying to yourself coz you were "Born This Way" Babay!! Lolz!!



  41. 41

    Re: Gaga_Is_Shit – Gaga fucking rules music. She is the Queen. ;)



  42. 42

    Lulz, The queen of trannyz GaGa wasn't nominated for video of the year for her shitfest BTW! I bet Phaggez is having a fit right about now. Her videos for the 99 cent bargain bin, album of the decade were all flops and horribly recieved. Her time is up.



  43. 43


  44. 44

    Re: Success Probability 0% – there will never be a day. So don't get your hopes up.



  45. 45

    Best Pop Video for Britney Spears is on lock :D



  46. 46

    Lady Gaga gives Madonna taste of her own medicine. LMFAO! Fucking way fucking too fucking funny. Gaga has taken over the world. She is the Queen. Madonna is (1) an old whore. (2) a has-been. (3) a no singing talent piece of talentless garbage. Gaga rules. :)



  47. 47

    Re: tellall – What are trying to prove with all these same pathetic comments, tellall baby? That your Grandma Monster isn't a Flop??lolz



  48. 48

    #vmanominationfailure :D
    britney& nicki all the way tho



  49. 49

    Re: Gaga_Is_Shit – There are no anti-Gaga people on planet Earth. Everyone loves the Queen of Pop. Gaga fucking rocks. She has dethroned Madonna. She has taken over music. Lady Gaga is the greatest female artist of all time.



  50. 50

    Re: Gaga_Is_Shit – The fact that you consistantly obcsss over things you hate (there is a psychological disorder for that, look it up and get help) destroys any credibility of your critisms. And this is coming from a passerby with no reason to say either way, just sayin you make yourself look like a fool.

  51. Dessa says – reply to this


    51

    This is going to be a shitty VMA. Pop music fucking blows this year, except for Gaga, and that album is never going to get the credit it deserves.



  52. 52

    If Cher loves Gaga who the f*ck cares about the stupid comments of few internet trolls.



  53. 53

    I love Gaga's songs. Her voice is sensational. She is really talented. Gaga is the Queen of Music.



  54. 54

    I bet Gaga can act too!!! HAHAHAHA. Madonna go eat your heart out, you've been ousted by real TALENT. Hahahahahaha. At the Academy Awards, the winner is…Lady Gaga. (Standing ovation.) BRAVO! Belissimo.



  55. 55

    Rihanna deserves more nominations and credit… why is katy perry even being considered????? mtv is lame.



  56. 56

    Lady Gaga should host the Oscars.



  57. 57

    Gaga, the queen of music, is a hit-making machine. She doesn't need song writers. She creates everything by herself. She has talent. Lady Gaga is talented. She is awesome.



  58. 58

    Re: tellall – I can see that you're hiding your sadness bcoz gaga is flopping and she had only 3 noms for "Album of The Decade"!!LMAO!!



  59. 59

    It's weird that Rihanna didn't get nominated. And when I say weird what I mean is it's fucking racist to not nominate Rihanna but give the white girl her due.



  60. 60

    Gaga will design clothing lines for GAP, HM, Chanel, Dior, Prada, Valentino, CK.



  61. 61

    MTV is fucking racist. Rihanna got no respect. The Beatie Boys? Fuck, just what we need 40 year old jew rappers still rapping about what they were rapping about in 1986!



  62. 62

    Re: Gaga_Is_Shit – LOLZ!!



  63. 63

    Because of Lady Gaga there will be video games, box office hits, Academy Award winners, nominations and wins in all categories at all awards shows, Presidential elections, space travels, originality.



  64. 64

    Re: Gaga_Is_Shit – Lady Gaga cares about her music. Gaga wins an Oscar long before Madonna gets to sniff one!



  65. 65

    Re: tellall – You forgot one thing!! Because of Lady GaGa you have the courage to go through with the sex reassignment surgery!! Congrats, tellall!! LolZ!!



  66. 66

    Re: tellall – Did u take meds today, tellall?



  67. 67

    Fucking jews. MTV is racist!! Give Rihanna her due motherfuckers!! The Beastie Boys?!?! Three fuckin' almost 50 year old JEW KIKES!! Give Rihanna her due!! Katy over Rihanna is fucking racist!!



  68. 68

    Re: tellall – Gaga deserves an Oscar for being the ugliest liar and thief in music history!!lmfao!!



  69. 69

    I can't understand why Rolling in the Deep has so many nominations, sure its a good song but the video is boring compared to any of the other nominees. I thought these awards were supposed to be for good VIDEOS not good songs, Born This Way (although, purely as a video, I think Judas is better but it only gets a nod for art direction) and Last Friday Night are examples of good videos, regardless of whether you like the songs or not. For me, a video should be something interesting to watch and Rolling in the Deep is far from interesting, the woman just sits in a chair all the way through for fucks sake!



  70. 70

    Lady Gaga has TALENT! ;)

  71. FS says – reply to this


    71

    Re: supandrea – Oh now they can't handle her is it. Maybe it's because she's loosing her edge. Gaga is like Star Trek, it's only die hards are Trekkies, who dress up in funny costumes and go to conventions. The rest of the population thinks its lame.



  72. 72

    Re: FS – Yes!! Totally brilliant!!

    Re: madonna is shit – i never compare Tranny Caca with Britney or Madonna, dumbass!!! why in the hell I compare an amateur singer like Tranny Caca with living legends like Britney or Madonna. Tranny Caca's real competitors are Katy Perry or Adele. Well, compared to them, your Tranny Caca is stiil a LOSER.

  93. china says – reply to this


    93

    those nominations for your ugly tranny are a joke, aren`t they?



  94. 94

    CAN WE ALL TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT REALLY FUCKN MATTERS HEAR? you guys all have terrible taste because 97% of these nominees suck aaaass . all this music is really crap. its all crap and they sell it to u and u feed into it. the only non-illumanti and demented crap feeding our society with lies trying to brainwash us is kreayshawn. thats real talent solely from herself n no one else. Kesha sucks the worst btw edmonton. so does katy and so does gaga. they make music for 5 year olds.



  95. 95

    and gaga and madonna both sucks too. madonna didnt always but now she does. and madonna FOOORSSHHO has way more fans than gaga either way. so u dumbsht who said gooooo gaga ur retarded.



  96. 96

    Okay no to born this way… horrible video and disgusting.. no to judas choreography or till the world ends..cheap dance moves.. it should for sure go to beyonce.. as for best art direction..uh why judas? cuz it was colorful? It was stupid.."jesus biker"? Uh no.. i don't know why Katy Perry's firework is on that one either.. should of been E.T. in my opinion..that was creative xD..anyways damn Katy Perry is on practically everything.. not bad



  97. 97

    it's whatever pop has been stupid for a while and music is shit these days.. but you trolls fucking ruin these posts -_-



  98. 98

    I just know Lady GaGa is gonna sweep the VMAs!!!! After all, this is the year of GaGa?! Right?! LMFAO!!!! I'm loving it!!!! Maybe it's her NEXT album that will be the ”album of the decade”!?!? LolZ!!!!



  99. 99

    This must be a mistake because this is Lady Gaga's year, isn't it?!?! LMFAO!!!!



  100. 100

    I think TELLALL and MadonnaISshit are the same fucking people. But notice how M isn't around any more….. I think they are all the same poster just attempting to stir up shit with their dellusional rants.
