MTV VMA Nominees 2011

Announcing the 2011 MTV VMA Nominees

MTV has released its list for this year's MTV VMAs, and there are a few staple artists with multiple nominations, like Eminem, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, but there are lots of newer musicians blowing up the list this year too. Take Adele, who's up for best female video, best pop video, and video of the year for her hit "Rolling in the Deep," and Nicki Minaj, who broke into the best female video and best hip hop video categories for "Super Bass."
