|Katy Perry & Mr. Will-W.|
Perry upon finding out the amazing news Tweeted, "OMG! I just got word that I'm nominated for 9 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS!!! I'm kinda speechless/nervous/turned on! NOW it's up to YOU to VOTE!". She is currently still touring in Seattle.
Adele and Kanye West follow closely behind Perry with seven nominations apiece, with the former having the distinction selling the most albums thus far in 2011 with her sophomore Disc, 21. Lady Gaga surprisingly only receive three nominations, tieing with Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj. So much for Gaga's "Fellini Pop Art" which I guess like me, went over the heads of the folks at MTV.
