VMA Nominations Announced: Lady Gaga Leads Pack With 13 Nods

Remember last year when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift just as she was about to accept her trophy for Best Female Video at the 2009 VMAs?

Well, we have no idea what kind of drama will go down at this year’s show, but Taylor is nominated for Best Female Video once again (for “Fifteen”) against Beyonce (for “Video Phone,” which also featured Lady Gaga). Other ladies up for the Moonman in the category are Gaga (for “Bad Romance”), Ke$ha (for “Tik Tok”) and Katy Perry (for “California Gurls”).

The biggest news to come from today’s announcement, however, is that Lady Gaga received a total of 13 nominations — that’s the most ever received by any artist in a single year. Eminem follows close behind with eight nods.
