Put away those claws, Little Monsters!
Some of Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters have begun behaving like hopped-up Beliebers after their idol, whom they’ve affectionately dubbed Mother Monster, failed to score as many MTV Video Music Award nominations as they would have liked. While the 2010 VMAs were all about Gaga (and her beef jerky ensemble), nominee frontrunners Katy Perry and Adele are the belles of this year’s ball; putting both songstresses right in the crosshairs of some pretty disgruntled pop fans. Yikes!
Clad in her now-infamous meat dress, Lady Gaga took home eight prizes at last year’s so, including Video of the Year for “Bad Romance.” This time around, she notched just three nods; Best Female Video for “Born This Way” and Best Art Direction and Choreography. To the fury of Gaga’s devoted fanbase, her fellow pop star Adele scored a whopping seven nominations for her bestselling sophomore disc 21, an international blockbuster.
With their monster noses out of joint, some Gaga fans are taking to Twitter to get personal with Adele, with some even stooping so low as to pick on the “Rolling in the Deep” star’s weight.
The 2011 MTV VMAs will air live from Los Angeles on Aug. 28.
