Rihanna, Katy Perry, Drake Lead MTV Video Music Award Nominations

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The MTV Video Music Award nominations are out, and Rihanna and Drake are leading the pack with five nominations each.

Last year’s big winner, Katy Perry, isn’t far behind with four nominations.

Rihanna has two chances to win for video of the year; she’s nominated for both her hit “We Found Love” and her duet with Drake, “Take Care.” Others in the category include Katy Perry for “Wide Awake”; Gotye for “Somebody That I Used To Know”; and M.I.A. for “Bad Girls.”

The show will air live from Los Angeles on Sept. 6, and will feature performances from four-time VMA winner Alicia Keys and One Direction, which is up for best pop video for “What Makes You Beautiful.”
