Well, lookie here! MTV just released its nominations for the 2014 Video Music Awards, and no surprise here, Beyoncé topped the list. Why? Because she runs the world — flawlessly.
The “Drunk in Love” singer received a total of eight noms including Video of the Year, Best Female Video, and Best Collaboration for various tracks off her self-titled album. Guess that’s what happens when you drop an 14-track album along with music videos in the middle of the night. #BowDown
And we just have to point out that if Bey wins a few Moonmen, we’re sure they’ll go nicely with daughter Blue Ivy’s gold sippy cup from dad Jay Z.
But Queen Bey wasn’t the only one to get a ton of nods. Eminem and newcomer Iggy Azalea are just behind her with their seven respective nominations. As for the other nominees, they include Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, Sia, Miley Cyrus, Sam Smith, and more.
To see who will walk away with a covetable Moonman, tune in to MTV on Sunday, August 24, at 9 p.m. ET. Plus, you’ll catch scheduled performances by Usher, Ariana, and 5 Seconds of Summer.
