Also, matching Kanye in nominations is singer Adele for her well known single “Rolling Deep” and her album 21.
Katy Perry actually leads all contenders with an incredible 9 nominations and is clearly one of the favorites to take the most trophies home.
This year the VMA’s will be in Los Angelas, California on August 28th, and will air live on MTV starting at 9:00 PM EST.
Plenty of new nominees this year like Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean, not to mention other familiar VMA faces such as Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and more. Fans won’t want to miss out.
