She's also the first female artist to get two nominations for video of the year, for Bad Romance and her collaboration with Beyoncé, Telephone.

And Justin Bieber's got his first nomination as best new artist, with the video for his hit single, Baby.

Elsewhere, American rapper Eminem was the most nominated male artist, making it onto the shortlist for eight awards, including video of the year and best male video for Not Afraid.

Back in the best female video category, Lady Gaga will be facing competition from Katy Perry's California Gurls, Ke$ha's Tik Tok, and Taylor Swift's Fifteen.
