And The 2011 MTV Video Music Award Nominees Are…

The 2011 MTV VMA nominees have been announced, and Katy Perry might want to start drafting a VMA acceptance speech, because she’s nominated for an extraordinary NINE VMAs, including Best Pop Video, Best Collaboration, Best Art Direction, Best Direction, Best Editing and Best Special Effects for “E.T.” featuring Kanye West, and Video Of The Year and Best Female Video for “Firework,” as well as Best Cinematography for “Teenage Dream.” No big deal or anything.
