MTV's Video Music Awards: Will it be Beyonce or Lady Gaga?

Posted on


lady-gaga-beyonce_lMTV announced the nominees for the VMAs today and it looks to be a duel of the divas between Beyonce and Lady Gaga, with a whopping 9 nominations each. Beyonce is, of course, nominated for her now-iconic video for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” while Gaga’s nominations are split between “Poker Face” and “Paparazzi” (my personal favorite for many reasons, not the least of which is the cameo by True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard). I was lucky enough to vote for the VMAs this year and these ladies were definitely two of my faves in most of the categories. But the real question now is who will emerge victorious between the two enormously talented gals? It’s an incredibly hard decision as both made AH-MAZING contributions to the music video world this year. I sort of have to give the edge to Gaga since she’s the newest superstar on the block and has continued to outdo herself with each video, especially the epic “Paparazzi.”

Who do you think will walk away with the most moonmen, Music Mix-ers? Which star had the better music video?
