The nominees for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards have been announced & Rihanna is amongst the leaders with seven nominations (though not a one for a video of her own). Beyonce & Nicki Minaj each scored three, while Britney Spears landed two. There are some good points (Lady Gaga "snubbed!") & bad points (Video Of The Year..?), but feel free to see the full list of VMA nominees HERE & catch them live on Sunday, August 28th, @ 9/8c.
