Spears nominated for MTV award
After delivering one of the worst performances in the history of the MTV Video Music Awards, Britney Spears has a chance to be crowned this year as the absolute best.
The rebounding pop queen is nominated for video of the year for “Piece of Me,” a clip that had fun with her reputation as a tabloid queen. Other nominees included the Jonas Brothers for “Burnin’ Up,” Chris Brown for “Forever,” the Pussycat Dolls for “When I Grow Up” and the Ting Tings for “Shut Up and Let Me Go.”
Other nominees announced Friday -- Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Slipknot, Linkin Park and Foo Fighters -- were in the category of best rock video.
The awards will be handed out Sept. 7.
