This year’s MTV VMA nominations have been announced! I know no one really cares (that’s so 2004), but here they are anyway. This year’s VMAs will certainly be a battle of the two pop stars Beyonce and Lady Gaga. Beyonce and Lady Gaga grabbed to most nominations with a total of 9, and rounding out the top 3 is Britney Spears with 7 nominations.

Russell Brand will be hosting the award ceremony on September 13 with performances by Green Day, Pink, and Taylor Swift.

In the battle between Beyonce and Lady Gaga, I am definitely rooting for Beyonce, but truthfully, I am on Team Britney; I hope she wins a few Moonmen, just to prove that the pop industry is completely insane.
