Lady GagaThe news is in … the upcoming 27th annual VMAs is going don on September 12th, and it’s Lady Gaga who leads all nominees with a staggering 13 nods.

With nods for Best Pop Video, Best Female Video and Best Dance Music Video, the breakout star can now boast about having the most nominations ever in a single Video Music Awards, as well as being the first female artist nominated for two different videos in the Video of the Year category for “Bad Romance” and “Telephone” featuring Beyoncé.

“I’m so honored for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history. Ironically, I’m even more proud it’s an unlucky number; 13,” said Lady Gaga. “A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for 3 reasons: To make loud music, gay videos, and cause a damn raucous. Thank You MTV!”

Behind Gaga, coming off the success of his latest album, Eminem is this year’s most nominated male artist, racking up eight nominations including Best Male Video, and Video of the Year for his hit single, “Not Afraid.”

“Apparently MTV doesn’t care that I have two massive stadium shows on the other side of the country the day after the VMA’s. F me, right?!?!,” said Eminem. “I mean, I’ll be there but don’t expect me to be nice about it.”

VMA newcomer Ke$ha is up for three Moonmen for “Tik Tok”, while up-and-coming rapper B.o.B has an impressive five nominations including a nod in the Best Hip-Hop category for “Airplanes” against “Forever” by Drake.

Other artists receiving first time VMA nominations are Justin Bieber for Best New Artist, indie favorite Florence + The Machine with five noms for “Dog Days Are Over”, and Jason Derulo for “In My Head.”

Additionally, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Pink, 30 Seconds To Mars, Katy Perry and Usher are also nominated for Moonmen this year.

The 2010 MTV VMAs will air live from Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on September 12.
