The nominations are in for the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs,) but who’s up for the gongs this year? Well it seems Beyonce Knowles and Lady Gaga are the leaders of the pack with nine nominations apiece. Beyonce, is pretty thrilled and said: “I’m excited and honored to be tied for most nominated for the VMAs. I’ve been blessed this year to have ‘Single Ladies…‘ become a video people really connected with and responded to. I’ve spent so much time watching all the great versions people created all around the world. It’s beautiful to feel you touch people and bring a song to life with a video.”

While Gaga accepted the noms in her own special way saying: “After years of hustle in New York City, where we made our art videos in bars, myself and the Haus of Gaga are honored to receive nine nominations for the 2009 VMAs. We believe in the immensity and the promise of ‘showbiz’ and will continue to give it mouth-to-mouth, until it’s vomiting return. All you need is a camcorder, a flashlight, and one truly GREAT idea. Thank you MTV for being our video flagship, and for supporting this bunch of inspired kids, who love to get wasted and make art, together.”
