Lady Gaga and Katy Perry Lead MTV Europe Nods
Do we know why there are two separate music video awards for MTV (USA and Europe) if the same people are nominated in both places? Why not just combine American and European voters, or whoever decides the winners, and just have one show? I don’t get it. Will the results be different?
Anyway, to no one’s surprise, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are tied for the lead in nominations, with 5 nods apiece. Their award nominations include Best Pop Act, Best Song, and Best Video. There are a couple of others, too.
Down the list, Eminem has four nominations, including Best Video for “Love the Way You Lie” with Rihanna. Muse is also nominated in various rock categories, along with Linkin Park, Kings of Leon, Ozzy Osbourne, and 30 Seconds to Mars. Let’s hope Jared Leto shows up looking as good as he did last week, huh?
For Best New Act, surprise, surprise, Justin Bieber, B.o.B., Jason Derulo, Ke$ha, and Plan B are all nominated. The show is supposed to be held in Madrid, Spain on November 7, and Linkin Park and Katy Perry are both scheduled to do performances at the ceremony. Although…with all the trouble Russell Brand has been getting into, do we think she will still do this? Eh, probably.
