Lady Gaga leads VMAs pack; Kanye tweets get New Yorker'd; Wyclef will run for president of Haiti
By David Malitz
- Lady Gaga set a record by receiving 13 MTV Video Music Award nominations yesterday. She was nominated for Video of the Year. Twice. Eminem collected eight nominations while B.o.B. and Florence and the Machine (really?) each scored five nods. The show will air on Sunday, Sept. 12; read the full list of nominees here.
- Kanye West on Twitter? Old news. Kanye West tweets interpreted as New Yorker cartoons? New and pretty awesome news. Kanye West following one random British dude on Twitter and making him a minor celebrity? Eh, Conan already sorta did that.
- Marc Barnes, owner of popular D.C. nightclubs Park at 14th and Love, has filed for bankruptcy. Love, a giant venue in Northeast D.C. has hosted many of hip-hop's biggest names over the past few years.
- Wyclef Jean really is running for president of Haiti.
