Will Europe go Gaga or Perry wild?

The nominations for this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards have been announced, with the big story from this year’s event bound to be the clash between Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, two very different looking sides of the pop coin, fighting it out over four awards, including Best Song and Best Female. One is a straight up full-breasted end-of-the-pier sex siren, made for teenage boys’ bedroom walls, and the other is a barely-clothed chameleon, whose sexuality and presentation of it are at the opposite end of the scale, playing with gender and flirting with full-on homosexuality. Still they both made good pop, right?

So who else is there? Well apart from the continuing nightmare that is Justin Bieber, not a whole lot; and when the likes of Gorrilaz and Vampire Weekend – both of whom sell huge numbers of records – are considered alternative it’s time to pack up and go home. Still, two hot chicks with not much on, and we get a bit of Rihanna too – bonus.
