Being nominated 13 times, Lady Gaga became the most-nominated artist in VMA history for a single year and subsequently became the first female artist to receive two nominations for Video of the Year when both “Bad Romance” and “Telephone” were nominated for the award.[2] She was also the top winner of the night when “Telephone” won Best Collaboration and “Bad Romance” won seven separate awards including Video of the Year, bringing her total number of moonmen to eight. When she accepted her award for Video of the Year, she also announced the title of her second studio album, Born This Way and sang an excerpt from the title track.[3] She accepted the award while wearing a dress complete with a hat, purse, and shoes all made entirely from cuts of raw meat which drew backlash from PETA.[4]

Overall, the show grabbed 11.4 million viewers – the largest audience for a Video Music Awards show since 2002.[5]
