Katy Perry, Kanye West, & Adele Lead MTV VMA Nominations

Katy Perry, Kanye West, and Adele

Katy Perry leads the way at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. The pop princess scores nine nominations, followed by Kanye West and Adele who each earn seven, MTV announced today.

Perry’s nods include Video of the Year and Best Female Video for “Firework,” Best Pop Video for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” and Best Special Effects for her futuristic chart-topping hit “E.T.” featuring Kanye West.

West picked up seven for his collaboration with Perry, as well as for “All of the Lights” and “POWER.”

Adele’s year keeps getting better. The vocal powerhouse, who has the current best-selling album of 2011, garners seven nominations for her soulful smash “Rolling in the Deep.”

Bruno Mars is up for four coveted Moonmen, while Beyoncé, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Thirty Seconds to Mars have three VMA nominations apiece. The Beastie Boys, Chris Brown, Pitbull, Lil Wayne, as well as first-time VMA nominee Tyler, the Creator all have two nods each.

Vying for Video of the Year are Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”), Tyler, the Creator (“Yonkers”), Katy Perry (“Firework”), Bruno Mars (“Grenade”), and the Beastie Boys (“Make Some Noise”).

Odd Future frontman Tyler’s “Yonkers” video, which Kanye West hailed as the best video of the year, will compete with Kreayshawn (“Gucci Gucci”), Big Sean (“My Last”), Wiz Khalifa (“Black and Yellow”), and Foster the People (“Pumped Up Kicks”) in the Best New Artist category.

    On another note, these nominations are ridiculous. Adele nominated for video of the year and best female video. She sits in a fuckin chair for 4 mins! I love adele but cmon. Man Down was out of this world and s&m although racy was so colourful and vibrant and flirtatious.

Adele sitting down in a chair is boring, who is Tyler the Creator, and Beastie boy i thought they were cartoons……***DO OVER** Wayne 6 foot 7 foot video sucked, most of them I think are dumb fillers. Katy Perry new video just came out and its so boring and cheesy. **RIHANNA NAVY YA’LL SHOULD ATTACK MTV, IMA BEY STAN AND I WILL HAVE YA’LL BACK.**

    @LO, Being popular, while does hold some influence, isn’t the final factor in awards. An example would be how Dark Knight, Avatar & Inception didn’t win the oscar for movie of the year.
    If they were going with what’s popular, “What’s My Name” & “Friday” would be nominated.

    The vmas are more about the videos rather than the music, but they do usually pick the videos of songs that chart well.

    Good Look for Katy Perry tho, People may talk crap about her but she had 3 #1s from that album and another song in the top 10. She killing the game now

    Surprised Rihanna didn’t get anything but at least she is on Love the way you lie (if that counts)

    BIG UP to tyler!(even tho I don’t like his music)

    Kanye too 7!

    Not a katy fan but congrats 2 her. Lmao at the upset rihanna stans. Face the fact that she is not on bey & gaga level. So glad she got snubbed 2 years in a row. Her & britney spears are the 2 least talented chicks in the industry. So glad that real talent like adele was nominated. Hope bey wins best choreography. That video slayed every video dance-wise. Best of luck 2 everyone but those 2 talentless pointless chicks.

    [Reply]

    No way Reply:

    @LL, I thought this awards show is supposed to be based on videos. Regardless of talent, Rihanna has the money and support from her record label to hire good teams for her videos. The reason why Rihanna isn’t nominated is because MTV banned S&M and Man Down is very controversial. I’m sorry but Lady Gaga is only nominated because of her crazy fan base. Judas and Born This Way were shit

    Rihanna’s what’s my name video has over 192 million views on vevo, only girl in the world has over 150 million views. Rolling in the deep has over 90 million views, last friday night has over 50 million, till the world ends has over 50 million views, and super bass has over 65 million views. how the fuck does MTV not have rihanna on there, i mean clearly if people are watching her videos more than the ones i stated then they must like them more!!!! but i do agree that beyonce and lady gaga deserve to be on there.

  36. wow

    this years vma’s r gonna be dry as hell. there r 2 catagories of nominess i noticed: main-stayes who even though they r talented they alwayss win multiple awards every year( beyonce, kanye, eminem,katy, gaga etc)and people who should of neva gone beyond one- hit wonder status.the exceptions being adele(id like 2 hear more fom her),big sean, and chris brown.

    Well seeing how MTV doesn’t even play videos…these awards don’t really matter anymore. They are irrelevant and the show has been awful for at least 7 or 8 years now.

    Who gives a fuck where Rihanna wack ass at. Her videos are so unoriginal it’s not even funny. I mean c’mon, this bitch walked in a corner store, got hugged up, dropped a carton of milk & ya’ll stans expect that shit to be nominated? CHILD PLEASE!

    Katy Perry should win something b/c her vids are always creative. I don’t want her winning for Fireworks. That’s just a rip off of Christina Aguilera’s Beautiful record. Only diff. is one is in 2002 & the other is 2011.

    What a lot of ya’ll fail to realize that this is the mtv VIDEO awards. It’s not about who’s most popular or top the charts (that’s what the billboard awards are for) it’s about the creativity of the video!

    They screwed poor lil’ RiRi over. Everyone who got screwed over by the VMAs should at least perform (aka everyone, but Katy Perry).

    Times like these make me mad Ye didn’t release Monster, that would’ve took home anything. And where is Riri? She had plenty of videos this year…

    @JAYE, That was a huge smack in the face for his fans. Sure he may not care about success, I’m sure he’s not enough cash, but having a true release of Monster would have been siick

  67. say what

    when mtv, bet, vma, billboard do things like this to rihanna it just helps to make her stronger. i will always remember d ross saying that she has never won agrammy that is sad to me, but shes still living the good life.

    @say what, makes her stronger? Are you that delusional? Rihanna is no legend. She is no icon. She is no “artist” Her songs are mediocre, catchy beats w| punchlines & that’s why they top the charts. She is a studio artist, nothing more. She’s also a weak performer so when u Ri stans talk about her as if she’s this amazing artist think about her music. She has no empowerment anthems!Just b/c she’s popular doesn’t mean she’s a great entertainer!

    All i can say is that they took Rihanna out so that other artist could’ve have a chance i guess cause seriously, Only girl was nominated for a Grammy for best dance record & she won it! NE-way at least she’s nominated 6 times with eminem & Kanye for LTWYL & AOTL!!!!!!:)
    Rihanna coming with another album this year so they will be forced next year!!!! BTW, #Congrats to all the other nominees!!!!

    @LO, ri ri doesnt copy dance moves and self proclaims herself queen. bey copied from tofo tofo , b mozambique dance group every single move. look up tofo tofo on you tube then come back and tell me why she deserves coz credit. her stans cant face up to the fact she desperate now and trying all the tricks but its not working, coz the charts tell a very different story. let the truth be told.
