Katy Perry Throws Shade at VMAs After 'Roar' Snub
"Roar" has "the eye of the tiger" but zero MTV VMA nominations
Katy Perry nabbed two MTV VMA nominations this year, but surprisingly, the awards show showed no love for her massive hit "Roar."
Shortly after the VMA nominees were revealed, the "Prism" singer took to Twitter to gently shade the awards show for snubbing the hit that helped her to become the RIAA's All-Time Top Digital Artist.

While "Roar" was quietly ignored, Perry's "Dark Horse" earned two noms for Best Female Video and Best Collaboration.
Gaga, on the other hand, was snubbed entirely by the 2014 VMAs, with nothing from "ARTPOP" getting a nod. In typically iconoclastic fashion, she didn't comment on the snub directly but took to Instagram to flaunt her nipple. Well, we all cope in different ways.
Beyonce leads the pack this year with eight nominations, while Eminem and Iggy Azalea follow with seven noms apiece.
