After keeping her fans glued to twitter all morning with the hashtag #nickiannouncement. Nicki Minaj finally broke the silence with a tweet that read, “So excited to announce that I will not only perform, but I have the honorable task of HOSTING this year’s MTV European Music Awards!! AAAAAHHHHHHH!!”
Besides performing and hosting the gig, Minaj is also up for four awards – Best Look, Best Hip Hop, Best Female and Biggest Fans. Now I don’t know about the first three nominations, but I think the latter goes without saying, taking into consideration that Minaj was able to get #nickiannouncement trending on twitter in a matter of minutes.
Katy Perry leads the pack with seven nominations, followed closely by newcomer Ariana Grande who scored six. Pharell sticks up for the guys with five nominations, while Iggy, One Direction and Sam Smith share Nicki’s spotlight with four nominations each.
The 2014 MTV EMA’s, which will also be celebrating its 20th anniversary, is set to take place on the 9th of November in Glasgow, Scotland.
Wait! What the heck happened to Lady Gaga? Am I the only one who noticed that she just disappeared? Seems like we’ll be trading up meat suits and giant eggs for half-naked twerking this year. Oh well.
