Firework rockets Katy Perry into double figures among VMA nominations
Katy Perry has landed a 10th MTV Video Music
Award nomination after her promo for Firework was listed in the
Best Video With A Message category on Thursday (04Aug11).
The pop star scored nine nods when the
nominations were officially announced on 20 July (11), but now MTV
bosses have added one more.
The Firework promo will go up against videos
such as Eminem and Rihanna's Love The Way You Lie, Taylor Swift's
Mean, and Born This Way by Lady Gaga when the awards are handed out
in Los Angeles on 28 August (11).
Perry is also up for Best Pop Video, Best
Collaboration, Best Direction and Video of the Year for
British soul sensation Adele is close on her
heels with seven nominations and she will also compete for Video of
the Year with Rolling in the Deep.
Matching Adele's seven nods is Kanye West,
who is up for prizes including Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Male
Video. He also has two shots at the Best Collaboration award for
his duet with Rihanna on Lights and Katy Perry's E.T.
Gaga, who stole the show at last year's (10)
award show by turning up in that now notorious meat dress, is up
for four trophies - the same amount as Eminem and Bruno Mars.
