has earned a record-breaking 13 nominations for this year's 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, trailed only semi-closely by Eminem, who received eight nods.
"God put me on Earth for three reasons: To make loud music, gay videos, and cause a damn raucous," Gaga said when she learned of the noms.
"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," Gaga added.
"Ironically, I'm even more proud it's an unlucky number: 13."
Gaga is nominated for Video of the Year, Best Dance Music Video for "Bad Romance," Best Female Video and Best Pop Video, while Eminem is up for Video of the Year for "Not Afraid" and Best Hip-Hop Video for his cameo in Drake's "Forever."
B.o.B. also scored five nominations, while Usher and Ke$ha received three.
