Gaga continues to break records!!
One Ms. Lady Gaga has just broken another record, for the most MTV Video Music Awards nominations in one year by any artist. I'm telling you...as crazy as this chick is, she's changed the landscape of pop culture on so many levels. She's taking bits and pieces from other artists and throwing her own flare over it and giving it to us wrapped up in one crazy-ass package...but the kicker that makes her different? She's ACTUALLY TALENTED. The girl can actually sing, play the piano and write. What most people DON'T know is that she started producing records before she ever began recording them. Keep in mind, she's only 24. That's crazy. I'm hoping she doesn't crash & burn as fast as she's going right now. In any case, here's what People Magazine had to say.... The Grammy-winning singer, 24, scored 13 MTV Video Music Award nominations Tuesday – the most ever received by any artist in a single year. The 2010 MTV Video Music Awards will air live Sept. 12 at 9 p.m. EST. "I'm so honored for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history," says Gaga. "Ironically, I'm even more proud it's an unlucky number: 13." She adds: "A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for three reasons: To make loud music, gay videos and cause a damn raucous. Thank you, MTV!"
