UPDATE: The complete list of MTV Video Music Awards nominations has just been announced.

Beyoncé and Lady Gaga tie for the most with nine each. As I told you earlier this morning, Britney Spears nabbed seven.

In a statement released by MTV, Lady Gaga thanked the network "for supporting this bunch of inspired kids, who love to get wasted and make art together."

First time nominees include Kings of Leon, Wisin & Yandel, Drake and Asher Roth.


Britney Spears has done it again.

I can exclusively reveal that our favorite comeback kid has been nominated for not one, not two, not three...well, seven MTV Video Music Awards.

Last year, the pop princess made a brilliant return to the VMA stage when she took home three Moon Man trophies for "Piece of Me."

And while we hate to remember this...

Could ya believe it was only two years ago that Spears solidified her trainwreck status at the VMAs in Las Vegas with her disastrous performance of "Gimme More" in front of an audience that included Megan Fox?

This year's awards will be handed out and broadcast live on MTV from New York's Radio City Music Hall Sept. 13. Russell Brand returns as host.

No word yet if Brit will be added to this year's performance roster, which already includes Taylor Swift, Pink, Green Day and Muse. Additional nominees and performers are expected to be announced later today.


We sure hope to see Megan Fox at this year's MTV Video Music Awards. For some of her best red carpet looks, take a look at our Many Moods of Megan Fox photo gallery.
