The MTV Video Music Award nominations were announced today, and surprise, surprise, Lady Gaga dominated with a whopping 13 nods, including Best Pop Video, Best Female Video and Best Dance Music Video for "Bad Romance."

The pop music queen is also the first female artist ever to be nominated twice in once category, as "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" are both up for Video of the Year.

"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. Ironically, I'm even more proud it’s an unlucky number; 13,” said Lady Gaga in a statement. “A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for 3 reasons: To make loud music, gay videos, and cause a damn raucous. Thank You MTV!"

Eminem earned an impressive eight nominations for "Not Afraid." The controversial rapper will compete for Best Male Video and Video of the Year.

"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 Eminem. “I mean, I'll be there but don't expect me to be nice about it."

First-time nominees include Ke$ha (three nominations), B.o.B (five nominations) and Canadian artists Justin Bieber (one nomination) and Drake (two nominations).
