Beyoncé cracks 8 MTV VMA nominations

Beyonce and Jay-Z at the Grammys

It seems as if Beyoncé’s self-titled surprise album last year hit the right spot because the Drunk In Love (questionable according to reports at this stage) cracked 8 nods for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. The star has been nominated in prestigious Video of the Year category, alongside Pharrell, Miley and Iggy… Oh and Sia. Very tough category, but it’s nice to see such a competitive category. This isn’t the only category that Beyoncé’s fans will have to hope and pray she wins – stiff competition from Ariana and the like. Check out the full list of nominees below and to see the awards, diarise the 24 August. They’ll be taking place at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Pity I’m one month shy of attending the awards. I’ll be States side a month later, but hey… let’s see what happens. Maybe I’ll get lucky. *Coughs, drops a hint haha.
