Lady Gaga has earned a record-breaking 13 MTV VMA nominations, the network announced today (Aug. 3). The pop star's "Bad Romance" video is up for Video of the Year, Best Pop Video, Best Female Video and Best Dance Video, among other categories.

"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," said Gaga in a statement. "Ironically, I'm even more proud it's an unlucky number; 13.

"A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules," Gaga continued. "God put me on Earth for 3 reasons: To make loud music, gay videos, and cause a damn raucous," Thank You MTV!"

Eminem leads all nominated male artists with eight VMA nods -- including Video of the Year and Best Male Video -- for his "Not Afraid" visual. "Apparently MTV doesn't care that I have two massive stadium shows on the other side of the country the day after the VMA's. F me, right?!?!," said the rap star, whose "Recovery" album has spent five consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. "I mean, I'll be there but don't expect me to be nice about it."

Hip-hop newcomer B.o.B. received five VMA nominations for his No. 1 debut single, "Nothin' On You," while pop upstart Ke$ha racked up three nods for her "TiK ToK" clip. Teen star Justin Bieber received his first VMA nomination for Best New Artist for his "My World 2.0" lead single "Baby."

The 2010 VMAs will air live from Los Angeles' Nokia Theater on Sept. 12. Voting for general VMA categories starts today at vma.mtv.com.
