MTV VMA Nominations Are Out!

MTV VMA Nominations Are Out!

The 2014 MTV VMA nominations are out, and it left me thinking “Ah. Yes, that makes complete sense. Where’s my coffee?”

I’m saying it’s predictable.

Beyonce grabs eight noms with her “Pretty” Hurts,” “Partition” and “Drunk in Love” music videos. On her tail is Iggy Azalea with “Fancy,” and Eminem’s “Monster,” both getting seven each.

Oh, and none for Britney (first time for everything. Sniff, sniff, cryyy).

Vote for your favs in several categories, including video of the year.

The VMAs will air live on Aug. 24 from inside the Forum in Inglewood, California.
