The nominees for the "MTV Video Music Awards" have been announced yesterday and Cardi B leads the way with 10, including nods for Best New Artist and Artist of the Year.  The Carters (Jay-Z and Beyoncé) are next with eight.

The biggest snub was probably Taylor Swift, who didn't get anything other than three nominations in the technical categories . . . even though her video for "Look What You Made Me Do" has been a huge success. It even debuted DURING last year's "VMA" broadcast.  Naturally, Taylor's fans are acting like this is an EPIC TRAGEDY, and that their lives are over.

 

The “VMAs” will air live from Radio City Music Hall on Monday, August 20 at 8:00 p.m. There's no word on a host or any performers yet.
